Reviews of Custom Homebuilder's Solutions

An anonymous Custom Homebuilder's Solutions user says...

I’m using it currently. I’m a CPA, licensed and retired. It’s not an accounting orientated software, as in it’s meant to be geared towards someone who doesn’t use accounting in their daily life. It was a bit counter-intuitive for me due to this reason, but I learned to use it though.

The good: I like that it’s online. It’s anywhere accessible and it also has automatic backup so I don’t have to worry about losing data.

The bad: It freezes from time to time, but more of an internet issue on my end I would imagine.
