User Reviews of eCaliper system

Submitted on December 10th, 2013 by an anonymous eCaliper system user.

The software is fairly simple, but does contain many features which could be used. However, for our companies purposes only the most basic payroll system was necessary. It is not the most user friendly system to start with, but the customer service is great and makes using it easy.

The Good…

The support they provided for their product made it easy to use, and if any issue happened they were able to help resolve it.

The Bad…

The user interface is a little complex if you are a novice or not used to working with computers, but if someone was well acquainted with computers it isn’t too bad.
