https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/PX/JQ/CKMLIA86MVHG.pngBillQuick- Gets better over timeWe use BillQuick as our sole accounting, time management, and record keeping system. All daily transactions are processed through BillQuick. It is used for everything from AP, AR, invoicing, to all financial reporting. One of the few items we do not use BillQuick for is payroll. But that is because we just got to the 50 person mark and do have the administrative staff to do in-house payroll. Our administrative staff consists of 4 people and they are the ones who are in BillQuick all day. The rest of the staff uses the program more for time and expense entry. We are working on teaching principals, associates, and project managers how to look up information on their own.,Daily Data Entry- the AR and banking modules are easy to use and do not require excessive training. They have kept these functions clean and to the point. User Friendly - The interface is easy to read and having different ways to get to the one area is convenient. The way it is organized makes it easy to get around and find what you are looking for. Time & Expense Entry - This module is easy to use and understand. There are different ways to view and enter time and expenses, which is nice because everyone thinks differently. Reporting - The ability to customize reports and that there are a variety of reports to choose from makes it [useful].,Pre-programmed Features - the system comes with items (such as default accounts) which you can not edit, delete, or make inactive. You have to explain to a CPA or upper management what they are and why there are there. These default accounts are also the catch all for when there is a difference in fixed fee billing. When looking for specific details, it is hard to follow exactly where everything came from. It works best at the broad overview level but the more detailed you get the harder it is to find the answer. When running reports, the ability (or lack there of) to choose which phases you want to see is missing. You can say you want phases 1, 2, & 3 yet only 2 will show and there is no a reason for this. Time & Expenses which have been marked as not billable don't show up on billing reports. We have asked tech support for help with this but they were only able to give us a report to run each month. The time should still show up on the billing report even if it's marked as non billable as that time is still against the project. In the credit card screen, once you start entering items in you can not go back and delete a line item. You can make it $0 but not get rid of it 100%.,7,Extra CPA hours - because of the issues with the accounting side of BillQuick, we have had to spent extra hours with the CPA to understand exactly why it does some of the things it does. Over the years it has gotten better but we still have to work extra hard every quarter to make sure it is functioning correctly. Time and Expense entry - being able to have the staff enter their own time and expenses has allowed for the administrative staff to focus on other items instead of being bogged down with those items. One system - having all the company information in one system is cheaper than maintaining 2 or more systems. Plus all the risk associated with double entry is gone. Finding errors in the ledger - this is both a good a bad. Depending on the entry, it is either really easy to find or hard to find because you can't tell if it is a vendor bill, expense entry, or credit card charge. Also, there are no notes that show up which indicate what the line item is. Even if a note was left in the original entry.,Wind2, Deltek Ajera and MYOB,Bluebeam Revu, Microsoft ExchangeArchitect's review of BillQuickI have a small architectural practice doing exclusively custom residential work. Before BillQuick, I was using my ad-hoc spreadsheet method of time sheets, record keeping, and manual invoicing. Once I brought a couple of outside architect consultants on board, this system went from time consuming to completely unworkable. My ad-hoc system was already terrible for historic record keeping.

Support: I can't say enough about the high level of support I've received from the BillQuick support team, whether it's my glitch or a software issue.,Phases: Although BillQuick does handle phases for projects, I would like to see this made more comprehensive and flexible.

BillQuick is great for basic project related items. When it comes to basic day to day data entry, BillQuick is easy to use and very user friendly but the more detailed and specific you get the harder time it has. Their accounting module is still lacking and needs to be further developed. The financial reports are a bit messy and we have had to spend time cleaning it up and getting it to function the way the CPA and IRS needs them. Currently the AR report does not match the Balance Sheet. I have been asking for a few years now to get an AR report that matches (as it should and is required by the CPA and the bank) yet they have not created one that does.

I think that if you have to have a really detailed invoice sent to clients, this isn't the software for your company. BillQuick works well for hourly based organizations. I don't think that it would be appropriate for large (100+) companies, I just don't feel it is powerful enough. For smaller companies, it will definitely do the trick.

  • Contract managment
  • Billing
  • Intergration with Quickbooks
  • Intergration with Payroll
  • Forcasting tool is lacking
  • Predictive analytics / tools for service organizations
  • Built in report writer
It is great for service based organziations where time and expense is billed to clients. If a flexible and secure system is needed, this system offers you the ability to use the system they way you want to use it.

"Billquick Review from a Finance/Administrator Perspective"

Score 7 out of 10

Billquick is solely being used by the organization for tracking our research analysts' time. Based off of the data gathered, our organization would run reports from Billquick to calculate resource utilization and project realization. We also used the system to track expenses and to invoice client reimbursable expenses to be able to generate consulting project P&L's.
  • Our organization migrated over to Billquick from NetSuite Openair. Billquick has a much user-friendly interface and more presentable reports.
  • Our organization had specific metrics we wanted to measure that were unavailable in Billquick's standard software. It was an easy process to be able to work with Billquick's customization team to get Billquick to calculate these metrics and generate reports that now included those metrics.
  • Our organization was able to invoice client reimbursable expenses as well as professional fees right directly out of the system on a professional and presentable template, thus saving us time on creating client presentable invoices outside of the system.
  • Users complained that sometimes they would click 'Save' on their timesheets and since there was no confirmation, it was confusing on whether or not it was actually saved.
  • The dashboard on the home page could be more robust.
Billquick is a cheaper option than many other time tracking systems. For a small or medium company in which the user is not that tech-savvy, I would recommend the system. It holds many of the same basic features that many small or medium companies would look for in a time system. The interface is very user friendly and much more appealing than what I have seen from other time systems around the same price range.

BillQuick Review: "Decent Timekeeping/Billing System for Small Companies"

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review

We use the system across the organization; employee profiles, contractor profiles, matter management, timekeeping, invoicing, reporting. Occasionally BillQuick has some quirks - billable items don't make it to the invoice, billed items disappear from the system, when creating new projects it will amend the new project with information from the cloned project. Many timekeepers report that when they put their time in, frequently BillQuick fails to save their time entries.
  • Intuitive
  • Flexible
  • Ability to BIll in LEDES format
  • Better flexibility to bill units in Billing Review Screen
  • Troubleshoot why some billable items don't make it to invoice
  • Troubleshoot why some historical billing disappears
  • Better flexibility in formatting reports
  • Extra options in Matter Change module that are conducive to fields on the Matter screen
We bill both hourly time entries and doc review (either on per doc or hourly unit basis). BillQuick has accommodated this billing requirement. However, on a per doc unit billing, we have to manually manipulate the pricing and the verbiage to the memo which can lend itself to human error.

BillQuick is currently being used by the accounting department. We are able to run reports to give to project managers regarding budgets and current open hours and expenses. We manage time for employees.
  • You are able to run detailed reports with specific fields that pertain to the project that you are looking at.
  • It's easy to navigate.
  • The colors are pleasing to the eye.
  • It would be nice to have access to all of the reports that BillQuick has to offer without having to pay extra for each and every report that our company needs.
  • Customer service takes a long time to answer telephone calls.
  • Overall it's a good program that has alot of features that we may not be familiar with.
BillQuick is well suited when we run detailed reports. But, like I mentioned before it would be nice if we didn't have to pay extra for each individual report we may need.
