    I think overall its a pretty solid software that if customizable would probably be one of my go to CRM recommendations.

    Pros

    I did like it's functionality with Outlook and other msft applications. There was little need to reorder things when exporting to excel and all that.

    Cons

    I did find the lack of customizability of the software to be frustrating. It appeared that there were only pre-populated choices from a drop down list for most things, many of which did not fit what i was trying to label. Now, this could have been a byproduct of my companies enterprise subscription with dynamics, i am not sure.

    Reviewed on 6/10/2017

    Pros

    Great store for customer information and data, relatively simple to get to grips with, and an efficient search function.

    Cons

    Can run slowly if there are a high number of users, and missing some features like batch c and p. That would be useful and time-saving.

    Our business is running smoother since changing but we are slowly getting everything in the new system. It is taking some time but it easy to find orders/invoices when you know what to look for. I use it daily to send invoices, correct price errors, correct PO numbers.

    Pros

    I like that we are able to have all of our stages in one program. From our quotes to our invoices, we can keep track of the progress of each transaction. You can search by customer, order number, PO number, amount and there are many more options. After some training and a better understanding of how accounting works, I have excelled at understanding what needs to be done to correct issues or fix errors. I appreciate the ability to put notes on each quote, order, and invoice.

    Cons

    I wish there was a little more features such as having automatic invoices from multiple vendors but I think they may be working on that. I also wish there was a creation date for invoices and not just a posting date. I also wish there was a way to link invoices after you have made a change/correction such as the PO number being incorrect. Once you change the PO number, you have no idea that it went to another invoice.
