Valuable software for billing at a law firm

5 3 years ago

Comments: 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

4 last month New

Comments: 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.

Quantity over Quality

3 last month New

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.

BQE CORE for small businesses

5 last month New

Comments: The technical team are superb and the (paid for) training essential to get you up to speed fast. The integration of time/expenses, project setup and control, invoicing and bill payments really good.

Pros:

Time and expenses recording. Invoice creation. Financial planning and reporting.

Cons:

The ability to customise reports is an additional costed service. It is really set up for USA and I had some tricky times making sure I reset up the currency. Also, you need to use 'Purchase Tax' for 'VAT' to make things work as you would expect.

Core is the core of our business

4 4 weeks ago New

Comments: Our overall experience with Core has been very good. It is allowing us to run and manage our business far more effectively that before. Also the fact that it is web based has been awesome especially during pandemic work from home instances.

Pros:

Project management and billing are our favorite features, we couldn't run our business without them. Core integrates really well with how we setup and manage a project.

Cons:

The Allocation feature needs a lot of improvement. It feels like all the information we need is in Core but it is not easy to retrieve or maintain, specifically around dependencies between phases within a project.
