I have been using it from a Trust Accounting perspective for my customer and find it frustrating.

Pros: easy to get around. I originally liked the remote access idea.... but that got quashed when the customer got hacked.

Cons: Where to start....cant correct anything...have to reverse and re enter. Bank Recs are 4 pages long for a simple bank rec because they put only a couple things on each page. No list of cleared items to reference back to. The P&L and Balance Sheet need to be condensed to take up less space both on the screen and in the event you need to print it. The data integrity report should be date specific so as to make it easier to pin point errors and address them. They are still having data glitches which are frustrating for the user. The bank journals need to be condensed so that in the event you need to print them they don't take up 50 sheets of paper. I have requested training twice and have yet to be contacted and there is no documentation for self education.

Overall: very few.

The user has very little legal accounting experience, hence their lack of understanding as it pertains to the need for extensive audit trails due to law society and state bar requirements. They also requested training and we responded immediately on both occasions, but were unable to reach them directly. The vast majority of their complaints were unsubstantiated or trivial in nature. The hack noted in the review had absolutely nothing to do with our company or product. For a list of referrals please contact us directly and we will be more than willing to provide factual, accurate reviews and testimonies. --------------- Michael Saville VP Sales & Operations, ESI Software Inc. 1-888-663-4545

Comments: We recently switched from ESILAW to ESILAW 360 and the new product is fantastic. It was a very easy installation and migration of our data and the new user interface makes the product so much easier to use. They really thought out how a law firm works and tailored the features and functionality to make every day that much easier to complete. Support is fantastic and really helped us through the transition.

Pros: Until we can get it to work, none yet.

Cons: Absolutely no documentation on how to use the software.

Overall: We are a small law office that had been use to running esilaw for over 10 years prior to deciding to "upgrade" to esilaw 360. The experience has been nothing short of aweful. From the complete lack of user documentation, to a user interface that doesn't appropriately address workflow of the software, the implementation of the new system into a production environment has been a nightmare. For something that is supposed to save a firm time (and therefore money) needed to manage client accounts, trust accounts etc....in the end, we are beginning to think that paper and pen might actually save us time and effort compared to this pre-beta released software. Absolutely unacceptable to have this out as a production version. The only plus really is the fact that customer support usually answer their calls when called during their stated business hours.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't buy it. At least wait a couple of years until they have documentation out for the product.

The comments re workflow do not represent the experience of the vast majority of our user base and end user experience. The client was also provided 2 hours of free training. For accurate product reviews please do not hesitate to contact us directly at 1-888-663-4545. ---------------- Michael Saville VP Sales & Operations ESI Software Inc.
