This is very easy to use for the untrained bookkeeper. Most issues arise with bookkeeping conventions, and NOT with the programme. That said, I succeeded in using this software myself for tax and management reports.

Pros

Easy layout. Modular setup. Fully customisable chart of accounts. Easy editing - fast location of entry errors. Fully functional for small and medium sized business. I like the fact that the desktop version does NOT require internet access.

Cons

Some work still is required for custom reporting and forecasting.

As a manufacturing firm, this software caters to all my needs, from production orders to inventory management to taxation.

Pros

A very simple and user friendly software. With a very good team of moderators who help out on all issues where users are stuck, be it small or complicated.

Cons

The coding to create different templates and custom reports is something that can be improved and I understand is under development to make it more user friendly.

We have replaced Quickbooks with Manager Desktop (Single User) which has served as better and saved us money.

Pros

The Banking Dashboard in Manager makes it very easy to manage banking transactions . The bank reconciliation tool is the best I have ever seen. It has custom field feature and custom fields can be set to appear as column in tables on documents. It is light weight despite it many features and opens and closes very fast, it takes up very small system resources. The search tool makes it very easy to find transactions. It has reports which are not present in many popular paid accounting software. Has AR, AP, GL, Payroll, Fixed and Intangible Asset Management, expense claims, inventory management etc. Manager has a lot of customising features so you can make your documents look exactly how you want. Finally the Desktop (single User) is totally free and comes with all the features the server and cloud versions have.

Cons

The server version needs some minor improvement in Audit trail and User Access levels.

We have been with MYOB for over 25 years. Being a small business we couldn't afford there over priced subscription costs that they now push. I found Manager.io and haven't looked back. I would gladly pay the once of fee for the server version if STP and EMDUPE files are included.

Pros

Looks good, Easy to use and flexible ........ and the desk top version is free !!!

Cons

So far can't create an EMDUPE file to up load to the Tax Office or handle Single Touch Payroll. (Australia)

I run a small accounting office and I use Manager.io for all my customers and it is still great to work with this software

Pros

Manager.io is very solid. It never crashes and it is very flexible in a way that you can print reports from any date till any date. It is for instance, very easy to drill down to the basic-entry. Also the functionality is great.

It is however very important that, if you are unexperienced with accounting software, you ask someone with experience to help you setting up the system. It saves a lot of time at a later stage. So take time to read the guides

This is just a general remark and warning for everybody new. The advantage of Manager.io is that you can fairly easy correct your mistakes.

Cons

There are hardly any cons. The creation of own reports is only possible via exporting data to a spreadsheet.

I have been able to prepare pay slips and done a proper tax record keeping and reports for tax returns and management decisions.

I have also been able to do proper bookkeeping on MOST of my business financial transactions and processes.

Pros

It is easy to learn it's usage and it has a simple user interface and approach to book keeping.

Cons

The fact that there are still some vital improvements to be done to the software.

An extremely positive experience for me.

Pros

I'm a novice small business bookkeeper without formal training. I've used Quickbooks/Quicken and Manager is miles ahead for what I want. It has a simple, uncluttered interface, pages/forms are simple to complete, the pre-configured reports are well-designed, and it uses very few system resources so it's quick to open, use and close. The Manager Forum is a fantastic resource and although I have no programming background, I've customised some themes successfully.

Cons

There is nothing I've found that I dislike or that I find frustrating.

It seems to do the trick for "basic" accounting and the "free for life" version is plenty however for mobile needs a month package or "Cloud" is great however automatic payroll function could be the killer.

Pros

If you're familiar with QBO it's rather simple to use. Slight nuances however their online tutorial is rather easy and laid out by sections so you can quickly find your answers. We started with the Desktop edition however quickly transitioned to the Cloud version which has a small monthly cost but Cloud it better for people always on the move. AR, AP, Tax etc are all really easy to navigate and the "unlimited" client feature as well as inventory tracking, both physical and virtual is very helpful!

Cons

Still trying to figure out the Payroll function and we've put in a ticket. At face value it looks like we have to manually write a check versus payroll automatically being pulled from the specified account via ACH.

Pros

I like that Manager provides a (free) desktop edition of its accounting software for the Mac. At a time where most accounting software are going on the cloud, which can be slow waiting for things to load, Manager's desktop edition is like a breath of fresh air where you can just key in what you need quickly without waiting. If you need to key in lots of entries, these waiting time really adds up.

Cons

The software is not optimized to resize its content to fit the window size. I run a 4K monitor and usually run apps side by side. When the software takes up half the screen on a 4K monitor, its content does not scale/reflow to fit properly, resulting in some horizontal scrolling.

I have been using this product for a few months now. Until now I have not had any problems. I tried to back up my data then the program shut down on me. Otherwise very easy to use. I hope I can get the back up to work because if I need to restore my data at any time then it is very useful. I am using the desktop system.

Pros

Very easy to use. You can pick which items you need. I do not sell anything, I use this program for personal use to do my taxes.

Cons

A glitch with the back up.

Advice to Others

Would be nice to have it free online.
