    Likelihood to Recommend

    The one part I would suggest approval in is when updating an invoice. If for example, one employee approved an invoice and then I, the administrator, make a change before the second employee approves an invoice the invoice is resubmitted to the original employee. It would be much easier if the invoice would only go to the secondary/final approver even once a change is made

    ZipBooks

    ZipBooks is really strong for small businesses (and non-profits like the ones I help manage). It may not yet be ready to handle medium or large businesses given the deep, niche functionality that is sometimes required in those cases.

    ZipBooks

    • Invoicing is particularly easy-to-use, quick, clean and beautiful. GREAT for branding.
    • The time tracker was unexpected, but very useful and integrates well with the invoicing. Leads to quick invoicing every time.
    • Customer support is phenomenal -- the support staff is friendly and helpful.
    • Although they are a new company, they are definitely on the right track!
    • I recommend this software to clients, colleagues, and friends alike, mostly for it quick and beautiful invoicing.
    • They do what they can to live up to their name! It doesn't take very long to get set up, or very long to create a complete invoice and send it to the right person.

    ZipBooks

    • There is some difficulty with a need to learn the use of the menus, they are not open and click, at the moment, the user needs to open the menu then using the pad keys scroll down and use enter to select from the drop-down menu. A mouse does not work.

      Usability

      Quadient

      Beanworks takes some time to set up initially, but once it's ready on your computer, it is very easy to use in conjunction with QuickBooks. They have representatives that are readily available or can schedule an appointment to walk you through it if you are ever having issues. Uploading invoices is quick and easy. Approvers can easily make changes to coding before approving.

      I have not used a system like Beanworks before -- this is my first -- but it is a great tool.

      ZipBooks

      I've primarily compared ZipBooks vs. Quickbooks because I've used Quickbooks at larger companies before. ZipBooks was the right fit for a smaller organization because it still had all the core features of Quickbooks but at a dramatically lower price that fits the budget.

      ZipBooks

      • ZipBooks is entirely affordable, and with my current $15/mo payments, I get ROI pretty quickly.
      • Invoices are simple and easy to make, while staying beautiful and functional at the same time. This saves me TIME, which means that I don't need to spend 15-20 minutes fiddling with the software to make it do what I want it to do. It just works. And that means, I can spend more time doing client work, and managing projects and sales.
