Comments: Big E-Z is the answer to a lot of bookkeeping problems. You don't have to spend years learning how to make entry's, balance your checkbook, reconcile reports, print reports. Plus, it's all on your computer. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to access your records. Big E-Z is a straight forward a program that gets the job done. Whenever I have run into a glitch, customer support is very prompt to bring aid.
I can recommend this program with no reservation.

Years of satisfaction.

Comments: WHEN I FOUND BIG EZ I LOVED IT. AFTER IT WAS UPDATED IT DIDNT HAVE ENOUGH LINES (NEED ABOUT 150) DIDN'T RETURN ON ITS OWN. FRUSTRATED.

Big EZ is Really Easy.

Comments: Being an old school type of guy I don't have complete trust in computers. I've been in business for eighteen years and have used Big E-Z registers through out. I do maintain records on Quicken without payroll also. Having suffered a couple of computer crashes over the years I still have all my records on big E-Z registers. When I gather my tax info for my accountant this is where I always go. I hope they're around for a least another 7 or 8 years until I retire!

Comments: I appreciate the simplicity of the software because everything comes with instructions and the set up is fast. It is best for small business owners and bookkeepers providing this service for them if they don't have the time. The reports are straight to the point and easy to read for those who have no accounting background.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is one of the cheaper and best options for quick bookkeeping but pricing has gone up. Would like more pricing options for multiple licenses.

Comments: We purchased the software to help a small church that we pastor. I had seen this software used by my wife in a small non-profit thrift store. I was impressed with the graphics and charts that it produced. And because it was based on Excel I was able to help her with it. So we purchased the new version for the church, but found that it was now a stand-alone software package and was not excel based. It seemed very difficult to work with and cumbersome. After several attempts to get support we decided to go back to my "homemade" excel spreadsheet to do our church finances with. While I miss the nice charts and graphs, the day to day entry and organization of the software seemed cumbersome and hard to use. It will probably work fine for a larger organization, but for our small church it was not useful.

Recommendations to other buyers: more flexibility in designing categories

Comments: I've been using Big EZ products for several years for both my personal and professional records. I find that, as a work-from-home salesperson, the Professional version offers me all of the features I need with simple set up and customization that the "big boys" have for half of their cost. I can customize all of the income and expense categories as well as having columns for commissions paid to outside field reps for 1099 purposes. Second, Michelle and her support staff have been nothing less than great with their support calling or emailing me, even on the weekends with any questions I may have. I see no reason to change vendors, even as my business grows.
