In my opinion, SlickPie is best suited for small business owners and freelancers, especially service-based ones. If that's your case, then it's a no-brainer. However, if you are a bigger enterprise or if you are not a service-based business, then it might not be the best choice for you. Still, the software is free to use, so you might just give it a try anyway.

It makes client communication extremely easy - we can message and schedule online appointments. Clients really like those options. We also like the online payment portal. That way clients can pay at their convenience, and we don't end up with credit card information that requires PCI compliance. It also helps with payments. It would also help with invoicing, but unfortunately, there are only 3 linked payment options (Square, Stripe, and PayPal). If you don't use one of those payment processors, you cannot link to billing.

Overall - easy to use. There are some missing features (like fillable pdf forms), and it also requires using certain credit card processors to link billing (otherwise it doesn't work).

It is a time saver for Account related things and it has a Billing & invoicing feature which helps us to generate bills and prints directly or share online. It has a very well designed dashboard where we can do our daily work. and it is free for freelancers and small companies so need to worry about money

I do miss the days when I could easily call up a rep and talk to them about any issues I had with the service. But I still do hear back from the customer service rep during the week within 24 hours.

Before shifting to SlickPie I was using QBO, so I guess I'll list it as a competitor. However, since SlickPie offers me 80-90% of QBO's features for free I can't really say QBO is a relevant contender.

I liked vCita a lot more for my home services company mainly because it handled scheduling through the software which was terrific.

  • It saves me around $500 in accounting software subscription per year.
  • It saves me around 4-5 hours a week in manual data entry (thanks to MagicBot).
  • It reduced the average time customers take to pay for my invoices.

  • I have no clue
  • I'm assuming that we would not have people making appointments with us if we didn't have this service
