Overall Satisfaction with Accounting Power

Our firm provides bookkeeping and bill payment services to a range of clients throughout the U.S. It is used for all clients we provide these services to and to clients who want to do their own bookkeeping but want us to be there. It allows us to work with a variety of clients across the U.S. in a real-time manner. The information it provides allows us to provide higher services.
  • Simple layout
  • Logical menu and format
  • Flexibility in designing reports
  • Department/location accounting
  • CPA firm's client interface for delivery of bills to pay
  • Better ACH payment options for bill payment
  • Additional layer of department/location allocation
  • Allowed for standardized processes
  • Improved efficiency in disbursement processing
  • Bank feed is easily broken
  • ACH payment options are not well established
I find Accounting Power to have more flexibility, power, and reporting capability than QuickBooks Online with a simpler interface.

Did Accounting Power live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Accounting Power go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Accounting Power again?

Yes

It provides everything one needs for accounting services and then some at a price point that makes it very affordable.
Needs some work. Support staff seem to be computer people, not accountants or users of the system. Their answers sometimes seem short and computer-based. Not answered in a way that says, "I have thought through this and here is what I see to do."
Retail, professional services, non-manufacturing, or non-inventory-based clients are a great fit.
