REALedger is an all-in-one system; it takes care of everything. It’s terrific, it’s a one-stop shop and it does whatever we need and a whole lot more.

They have good ideas but their implementation is lacking and their user interface is buggy and doesn’t make sense at all. Customer support is a email/call waiting list with the usual answer being we will pass that on to development and a MIGHT possibly be in a future release.

The Good…

Keeps me guessing.

The Bad…
