NexusPayables is well suited for your invoice tracking and payments, especially for medium to large businesses. I would not recommend for smaller companies because I don't see the value for them. Once trained, the system is useful. However, the user interface is confusing without proper training and is not user-friendly. I highly suggest businesses invest in a specific set of people to be trained so that they can teach others to use the program.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

NexusPayables FAQ and Help sections are not extraordinarily helpful. They will answer some questions, but most often, I have to bother my accounting co-workers because of the way the system is set up NexusPayables themselves can't help me most of the time. They tell me to refer to the program administrator.

Our company uses both at the moment, and I find that Concur Invoice is a much more user-friendly interface that is easy to use, easy to navigate, and extremely efficient. Unfortunately, we only use Concur Invoice for personal expenses and company credit card reconciliations at the moment, which is why we use NexusPayables for vendors.

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 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.
