Pros: The ease of use of this product is amazing! Our user community has had nothing but good things to say about the product. GoSimple has helped our company uncover many, many things that have been swept under the rug in the past. Visibility to spending has been restored and our financial savings as a result of this tool continue to mount. Our company's decision to move to this trade tool has paid off very quickly. Customer services levels are also second to none.

Cons: Lack of an established CRM tool and trade spend file for analysis has been our biggest bottleneck. However, we are close to rectifying.

Overall: Our experience has been nothing short of spectacular. As a matter of fact, we are pursuing rolling it out to our Retail side of the business as well. The benefits we've reaped from the system are numerous. We have visibility to things we have never had in the past. It's been a great investment!

Pros: It is easy to use, it is very helpful, it brings clarity to the user, processes are easy to follow, and it gives you clarity if you are doing something wrong within your company that employees might oversee.

Cons: Actually nothing, the software works as promised by them.

Overall: I've been working with Go Simple for 3 years now, actually I was the first one to use it in my company and thankfully I've loved every piece of it. Go Simple has always made my life easier and has given me the opportunity to increase my abilities at reporting, time management, contract management, communication, etc.

Pros: Personal interaction with the team is like no other I've experienced. They truly are our business partner and not merely a vendor looking to get paid.

Cons: We are still trying to get a key report that we thought we would have when we launched the product in January

Overall: Extremely positive. The system has enabled us to recover lot of amount(and counting) from customers who took deductions that they were not entitled to.

Pros: What I like the most of this software is that you can keep track on claims and deductions so companies won't double dip such as rebates and etc. It's also nice that you can run reports and have the option to imported it in excel. It's been very useful for our company and also saving a lot of money on the long run

Cons: What I like the least about the software is that I wish the check numbers would show in more places like in the pending category other than that I do like it very much it's pretty much straight forward and very easy to use

Overall: My overall experience with GoSimple is very good you have everything you need in one system easy to use and track and see claims and run reports. I also like that you can see all categories on Home page so you know what category is priority and let's you know when contracts are expiring
