The Access Group
The software is great and does what we need for our day-to-day accounting, but when it comes to our in-house IT, we seem to have issues with our internal server complementing our ability to work outside of the office on the software. Data has been lost, work time wasted twice.

It is extremely suitable for the client since for us they are all US-based companies, even though the main headquarters of our business is in Mexico.

It is less appropriate in terms of usability than taxes, since it does not include adaptability to Mexican legislation, and its deployment through customizations and reports is extremely expensive.

The platform is stable even though a version for MacOS is also missed.

In general, the user management and administration process is intuitive and once the roles are defined it is simple and easy.

However, the user experience has become out of date in relation to other web-based platforms currently available on the market.

Because we work with a CPA as our Finance Manager, it is best to have the ability to track our workflow and progress, as well as our own Due Date Tracking in order to remind him. They use QuickBooks to document their business, but using Access allows us to easily manage our number to send to them for general use.
