Valuable software for billing at a law firm

Bill quick is a perfect solution to create invoices and be able to bill many different attorneys on different projects.

Pros

The ability to customize many of its features is great. You can setup and keep track of time associated with various cases, clients, projects. There are so many reports that you can run to keep track of your spending. Able to export invoices to LEDES format. Able to import time from excel spreadsheet.

Cons

It takes some time to learn the software, the tech support team was great in getting me up and running. If you want additional reports they have a custom report group but their cost is a bit high to modify reports. It looks a bit complicated but actually it is easy to use.

Running a design practice, what they didn't teach you in architecture school

I check what other apps and services are out there for architects and most are even more overwhelming or offer more than needed for a small practice, or charge much more that it is worth.

Pros

Running a practice and staying financially solvent is key with a way to measure progress with tasks, time and fees. CORE does this and in a way architects can understand since it is designed by architects. However, it tries to cover all variations on running a firm and while appreciable, it can be confusing with too many choices to search and select from. The flexibility is a plus once you reach out to customer service (live24/7/365) and they kindly walk you through a solution.

Cons

It's a bit complex at the onset of setting up the account and projects. You do it often enough, it does become second nature but it takes time and includes some missteps readily corrected by the help system.

Reasons for choosing BQE CORE Suite

I have over 20 years invested in this platform and didn't see the value in moving over and converting at this stage of the practice.

Core has been an integral in helping us to understand and grow our business

Overall experience has been great as we use Core for our integrated accounting, time/expenses, and invoices, and it has been integral in helping us to understand and grow our business in the first year.

Pros

A little over one year back as we started up our new business I was researching for the best accounting, time and expense tracking and billing software. I selected BQE Core because it had an intuitive interface, easy reporting and it was on cloud. For any startup business the cost is always a big factor, the fact that BQE Core was a fraction of other similar software packages was an added bonus! We use BQE for our integrated accounting, time/expenses, and invoices, and it has been integral in helping us to understand and grow our business in the first year. At every moment, I have the info available to understand my cash flow, liabilities and A/R all in one interface, which never would have been possible if I used other accounting software.

Cons

In a separate excel doc I track our projected income and expenses for each two-week period so I can plan cash expenditure. If BQE had a feature to track overhead and projections in relation to billable work, that would really integrate all functionality in one software. Other than that, I don't have any suggestions for improvement.

Reasons for choosing BQE CORE Suite

Core is more intuitive and a complete package for professional services.

Quantity over Quality

Pros

It's not Quickbooks. Quickbooks is stuck in the early 2000s. CORE shows promise if usurping it with its variety of tools and analytical reporting methods. It also doesn't log off when I leave the site, which is annoying.

Cons

The overall user experience, at least for accounts payables, is deeply flawed. Save and Add Another shouldn't vanish when pressing "Save" when I want to just attach a PDF. I think CORE should take a glance at [SENSITIVE CONTENT] and figure out how to copy its features for payables. It's fantastic. Oh, and no ACH implementation.

Reasons for switching to BQE CORE Suite

We were using too many software integrations from Bill Quick, Quickbooks, and Bill.com We needed something the unified it all without the clunky performance of Quickbooks.
