Good for letting your investors, employees and others know at a glance how your company is doing. The interface is clean and organized well. I just wish more of the app's functionality was available for testing and implementation. "Coming soon" is not really encouraging when we already have been waiting for a year or more.

Any company that would like to have financial documents that update automatically, this is the software for you. You do not have to know any special coding to make things work, their wizards do all the work. While some of the licenses may be a little pricey, the money saved on not needing the additional overhead to help program queries can help offset this.

  • Installation of this product was very easy.
  • Support usually responds within 24 hours.
  • Having the ability to have your GL based spreadsheets automatically update makes all the difference. No sync issues to worry about.

Cons

9 Spokes

  • Integration with apps that are listed. Some of them are not supported yet and it seems the wait is taking longer than I'd like.
  • iPhone support. It would be nice to have this in the app store. Not available as of 04/25/2018.

  • If you use different GL for similar line items on your balance sheets, the software does not handle that out of the box, but there are some workarounds with Vlookups that can be used.

Support was helpful in the beginning but no longer needed because I didn't use the software as much. The experience that I did have with support was very friendly but not enough to give a good review. If the support team was called for initial setup, video chat or messenger app was used.

I actually chose QuickBooks (currently using) and Method (used for a month) before deciding that 9 Spokes is just good for looking at a few apps in one place. I'll keep checking back with them to see if they have improved. I wouldn't be surprised if 9 Spokes improves their product within the next 6-12 months.

We are currently transitioning from Vista's Financial Manager to Global Software's Spreadsheet Server. The ease of setting up forms with Spreadsheet Server wins hands down. You do not have to dig 3 layers down to make a change. If you can use Excel, you can pretty much use this program to create your accounting forms. They give you several templates, and they are easy to modify to anything you might need.
