Pros: Helps keep our farm bookwork in order. We were audited this year and all of our stuff was in order. Just had to print it off and go over it. The audit went well.

Cons: It was somewhat hard for me to set up, but kept with it and did okay.

Overall: Good program and liked the videos on how to do certain transactions and set up.

Pros: can't think of any, program is to complicated for the small user. no manual to look things up in to help with set up. you can look thru the help online for ever and not see enough at time to make it make sense. set up was a mess. and can't correct it.

Cons: when entering payments some areas of the entry allow you to use the enter key and some areas require the tab key. bad programming. also if you make a mistake in entering in a field the program moves on to the next field rather than going back to the field to correct it. very annoying. don.t like all the mouse ,tab and enter changes and knowing were to use each.

Overall: too many ways to do the same thing and no way to figure things out because no book comes with it. I liked the old red wing system much better. they tried to make one program fits all no matter what program you used before. if you don't use this a lot so you remember all the hidden things in the program and how to access them This program is not for you. it is not for me either but have to much money into it to go back now. yearly service is ridiculously expensive which we should not need to use so often but when we only do bookwork once a month. sincerely bill wilkie

Pros: Started using Redwing Agchek in 1992, works very well I know my profit and loss daily. I use the bank reconciliation, that keep me informed never an over draft. The asset records keeps me in touch with purchase price of a piece equipment when I desire to trade for newer equipment. Redwing software now Center Point has helped me to expand, bring my son into the farm operation and live comfortable.

Cons: No problems

Overall: Recommend to any farmer

Pros: Once set up, you should have all information you wish to use for any payment or analysis. I have a Master in Business Administration and there are reports for every aspect of the operation.

Cons: Need to be an accountant to understand how to set up a transaction and accounts. Few farmers or their wives meet that criteria. Perception was pre-programmed to set up the transactions. So many options but too difficult to set them up. Need one-on-one help.

Overall: would not recommend for most farmers doing their own books.

Red Wing Software Comments

Overall
Ease of Use
Customer Service

Pros: This is excellent software. In my off the farm job I had the opportunity to be involved with many types of financial software, and this is one of the best.

Cons: Redwing Software needs to provide customer support after hours and on the weekends. This is the major drawback of this software. If they would start with support just during tax season, it would help immensely.

Overall: Even though this is excellent software, I will not recommend it to others because Redwing does not provide after 5 o'clock support or weekend support. This is a major drawback of their product.
