Clearbooks

Larger companies, multi-currency. Clearbooks is in a competitive environment with Xero, SageOne, FreeAgent, Intuit etc., etc.

Thomson Reuters CS Professional Suite

Fixed Assets. CS offers an excellent selection of built-in asset and depreciation related reports including Asset detail, asset list, property detail, and much much more. They also have a ton of forms such as 4255,4562,4792 and other worksheets in the application. All these reports can be easily customized, which allows you to specifically tailor them to your company's client. They can also be exported to Excel as well.

Cons

Clearbooks

  • Like any SaaS product, Clearbooks is continuously evolving and being improved
  • Some of the reports still need some work
Peter Cowley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Thomson Reuters CS Professional Suite

  • I think the program should require you to close the client instead of just changing the client id#. It is too easy to enter data into the wrong company.

I give the rating of an 8 because the users in my company have little or no complaints when using the software. There are many features and add-ons for the program which allow for deep customization that they can tailor to each client individually which allows them to provide world-class services that help our firm succeed. On top of the features, implementation is seamless, and creating accounts is a breeze from the Administration side.

Support for Thomson Reuters is very in-depth as they have a ton of knowledge articles that help troubleshoot common issues and gives a launching pad for users to learn more about the product and help them use the tools effectively and efficiently. When needed, reaching out to the live support is always prompt and we are able to effectively work past any issues that come up.

Alternatives Considered

Clearbooks

Clearbooks was chosen 5 years ago as our accountant recommended it. There is an element of inertia in moving accounts packages.
Peter Cowley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Thomson Reuters CS Professional Suite

Not included in the selection process of Thomson Reuters CS Professional Suite, however, in my team at the company using the product, it has developed in large leaps. From implementing the required changes resulting from changes in tax law to industry-specific hurdles such as additional support during tax season, this product has been trust-worthy and reliable throughout my use.
Albert Hwang | TrustRadius Reviewer

Return on Investment

Clearbooks

  • I am not sure that ROI is an appropriate measure for an accounts package. The cost is around £250/year, which is a tiny fraction of the cost of a bookkeeper/finance controller/finance director/CFO.
Peter Cowley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Thomson Reuters CS Professional Suite

  • I was provided the program to use by management so I can't answer this question.
