Pros: Only used it for accounting purposes and after a learning curve it was okay. I know it has more functionality that we used.

Cons: The accounting system was not user friendly. No training by our company. I understand that it is a very expensive software.

Overall: We are leaving this software and will soon be using Maximo for all of our accounting purposes. It is always good to learn something new.

Pros: I can enter all the information before processing a payment and I am alerted if an important information is missing or isn't a routine.

Cons: Software is a bit slow, there have been times where outages were experienced, thus increasing the work-load post outage.

Overall: I could search a particular detail with ease as it has various filters to choose from.

Not easy to use. And customer help didn't come easy.

Pros: The way It allows us to pay our bills makes it a good program to use. If and only if we have that company already added into our system.

Cons: The customer help didn't come easy. The addition of new vendors to the program was a pain. And getting more information from customer service was like pulling teeth.

Overall: The benefits we receive is that it allows us to pay our bills with ease.
