User Reviews of Practice CS

Submitted on April 9th, 2021 by Anonymous

Overdesigned and cumbersome. No real practical design for firm of less than 50 persons. No one has asked a firm what is needed to ensure information is properly provided. Need a full time administrator to keep program working and to use in an approrpiate and professional manner. No way to check or review notes applied to time and billing once time is applied to billing. Notes are important so that adjustments and improvements can be made year to year. If you have less than 50 staff AVOID!

The Good…

Nothing really. Overdesigned and cumbersome

The Bad…

Overdesigned and Cumbersome

I was originally introduced to Practice CS while at a previous CPA firm, and was familiar with its operation and capabilities.

Using the status reports feature we are now given automatic reminders for follow-ups and check-ups that have improved revenue and overall customer service. The 941 payroll payment reminders were especially useful as they may otherwise have possibly been missed.

Choosing Practice CS for my firm was the right decision to make. If anything, I’m disappointed I waited those six to eight months because of concerns over the price. My hesitation wasn’t worth the potential revenue I now know I lost in that time. Practice CS paid for itself within two months, and it’s still going strong.
