Likelihood to Recommend

OpenGov

For a smaller organization like ours it provides us with the ability to give a large organization feel. We can produce data analysis and reporting at the click of the button.

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.

Pros

OpenGov

  • Their customer service is excellent
  • Updates are timely and useful
  • They keep up with government standards and needs
Brian Dehner | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

Cons

OpenGov

  • Sometimes I feel they move too quickly on product development
  • Could provide more hands on training
Brian Dehner | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

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.

Return on Investment

OpenGov

  • It allows us to provide acccurate and timely data to pur decision makers.
Brian Dehner | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
