Pros: This is the simplest software we know. It just works. Chefs approve food bills, Marketing Managers approve marketing bills etc. Data extraction and approvals workflow in one. Plus the price-checker means we don't get overcharged. Love it. Local support. Easy setup. Would highly recommend.

Cons: none to be honest. This does more than anything in market, at a similar price.

Overall: Been using Lightyear since it launched, and their previous product invitbox before that. Can't believe we processed paper bills for so long.

Pros: Quick to Learn

Excellent functionality

Fast and knowledgeable support

Cons: None as most of the things I would like are coming in soon to be released new version

Overall: We receive between 2,000 to 3,000 invoices per month. Lightyear facilitates auto receiving and forwarding to the persons responsible for approving the invoices. It provides a logical and easy to understand workflow and has integration to our Xero aacounting software. Lightyear provided excellent training and their support is 100%

Pros: Nothing to like about light year it is doesn't work simple

Cons: Slow, Unstable, inaccurate ocr of invoices causing excessive manual re-entry of invoices, customer support non existent as they can't do anything as it is a terrible system I have waited for improvements over the last 3 months they haven't happened stay from lightyear find something else

Overall: Terrible is all i can say to be honest
