To good to keep a secret.

It does not take a full time person to keep it up to date. Actually each user keeps their own work up to date and an administrator only jumps in to work on missed due dates.

Pros

Built in videos that walk you through each section of the program.

Cons

We hesitated to write a review because this program is such a boon to our accounting practice we did not want knowledge of it to leak out to other accounting practices.

Reasons for choosing Financial Cents

Financial Cents has a fresh, modern UI and very intuitive processes, whereas the two alternatives are dated and require a full time administrator which we could not spare. It does focus on accounting firms that still bill by the hour versus the newer value based pricing model, however.

Reasons for switching to Financial Cents

Nutshell is a Sales oriented CRM. Due to its task assignment features and internal communications facilities it served us very well for some time. We were reluctant to go with either of the two legacy programs, but when Financial Cents arrived we immediately transferred our client base over through a very easy to use integration with QuickBooks Online and we haven't looked back.

A valuable tool so nothing will fall through the cracks

There are clear and helpful instructions to get started, customer service is very responsive and while there are some things that I don't like, I see how they are actually improving the app and expect it to get better.

Pros

It didn't take me long to get started using it once my templates were configured. It's very easy to customize each project for my needs and set it to recur automatically. It has become a valuable tool since the first day I used it with a client project. The workflow view is very helpful and the capacity management feature is useful although not perfect.

Cons

Setting up my templates took a long as the only import option is from a proprietary file format for users to share templates so my assistant had to spend days copying and pasting all of my customized templates into the system. The QBO import is very convenient but it imported projects as separate clients which required some cleaning up, I wish I could select which clients to import. The client portal sounds great in theory but I can't use it as I am used to a completely white-labeled experienced and this portal is ugly, not customizable and I have found no way to customize the text of the emails that are sent to clients. I can't use this until they allow me to customize the text and branding.

Reasons for choosing Financial Cents

Recommendation from colleagues, amount of features for the cost.

Reasons for switching to Financial Cents

While I love 17hats and it's still my primary CRM, lead management and client communication tool, I outgrew its project management capabilities. Financial Cents was recommended by several colleagues so I decided to try it and liked it enough to subscribe.

Easy to Use Project Management Software

Love it! Took my many spreadsheets into one place to see what work needs to be completed.

Pros

The ability to setup projects for multiple clients all at the same time. Also, when I can't figure something out, I can message the company and typically get a response in minutes.

Cons

Doesn't have a lot of features, but they are always adding new features.

Almost perfect!!

Pros

The software is cheap, easy to navigate and setup for first time users

Cons

One of my least favorite features is how FC is how much watermarked FC is when it comes to the client side. I need the software I am using to be in the shadows, like behind the scenes when I interact with my clients. Unfortunatlely all emails and communications from me to clients are labelled with FC logoes and texts all over which is not good as my Firm is playing behind the scenes
