    Cons

    - Lowest price is still expensive relative to other software
    - Significant learning curve, but customer service is above average

    Don't use their accounting module, just use their practice management

    Pros

    Saas based, logical navigation, good user interface, many reports

    Cons

    Billing is somewhat cumbersome for accounting practices with clients that are both fixed fee and hourly; workflows were not designed with accountants in mind

    Pros

    We've used several time and expense tracking services over the years, and Core is by and large the best program we've used. It's layout is easy to understand and navigate, and the expense tracking is seamless.

    Cons

    We have no negative comments regarding Core since we started using it seven months ago. So far it has lived up to our expectations.

    I wasn't going to renew because I couldn't get the information I needed for breaking down my revenue sources. I was promised that the reports would be improved and do exactly as I needed. This was not true. After literally hours on the phone, they told me that in fact no - I couldn't get the reports I was promised. Shortly thereafter, all of my work in progress disappeared. I again worked with support and sent a back-up. They printed me a partial copy of the WIP but it would all have to be re-entered. I didn't renew. Now, I can't get a copy of any old billing invoices unless I pay the renewal fee. I spoke with a manager and basically, it's not their problem because I no longer have a current subscription. This is a horrible company to work with.

    Pros

    I liked the work in progress reports. Until all of my WIP disappeared. I also liked the ability to customize invoices.

    Cons

    The salespeople have no idea how the software works and will guarantee the software can print reports that aren't available.

    Pros

    The time and expense features are the key reasons we started using Core over 6 months ago. It has simplified our accounting process by billing directly to projects and saved time on generating invoices.

    Cons

    It took a while to configure when you have a large running list of projects. We ultimately had to get support from BQE to setup our database initially, and it took several weeks to get through that process.

    This is one of the top business management software solutions that we've encountered.

    Pros

    We switched over to Core after using several other project/time management and accounting programs over the past several years. Since the switch to Core, we've been very happy with the results and the ability to automatically indicate to employees when they are overbudget on projects/tasks.

    Cons

    There is a bit of learning required on the user's parts before they know where to input time, expenses, and deliverables.

    Pros

    It does the job. It can be a bit wonky and sometime you aren't sure if it's saving or freezing. Doesn't really have helpful features - like auto populating commonly used activity ID's. Very basic features.

    Cons

    Mobile app isn't great but allows you to update time when offline - which is helpful when you're updating on the subway. Customer service is not great but their account managers are on top of billing issues.

    1 stop shop. And, it integrates with QuickBooks online.

    Pros

    It's great at tracking projects, invoicing and payments. The system is only as efficient as the data going into it though. The tech support is outstanding.

    Cons

    Understand the process flow between modules before creating your first set of invoices, especially if you have sub-consultants/expenses.

    Pros

    The process of switching from BQE to Core was very much automated, and BQE staff were very helpful along the way.
    Now that we are using Core, and staff is inputting their time cards daily, it’s so much easier monitoring time spent on projects in real time, and our invoices are going out at least a week earlier than before. I highly recommend Core whether you are currently using BQE legacy or any other project management program.

    Cons

    The roles and permissions in the modules for Administrator, Project Manager, Billing were not quiet aligned with our workflow, but it was easy for us to adjust.

    The BQE company has been very responsive to suggestions and is making steady improvements. It is nice to use software that gets better over time.

    Pros

    The product is very powerful and provides quick information about how our projects are progressing - it allows us to know precisely how we are doing financially on each project. I like how flexible it is - much more flexible than other similar software I have used over the years. I like the interface and the customer service has been really excellent - they have been very responsive when we get stuck, and there has rarely not been a solution to our problems.

    Cons

    Sometimes the flexibility of the software makes it a little unwieldy. This software requires you to pay attention to what you are doing - because you can mess things up pretty quickly. There are times when I wish it had the ability to turn off some options - I would give up some power and flexibility to make it easier to work with. Invoice formatting needs some work.

    This company is clueless when it comes to the needs of small architectural firms.
