What customers are saying about HoneyBook

I wish it wasn’t so expensive. I like the service, but I feel that the annual cost is pretty steep. (Review from G2)

The learning curve. As a busy business owner, it does take some time to practice and perfect. (Review from G2)

One of the areas where I feel this platform could use some improvement is its reporting and analytics functionality. While the platform provides basic data on projects, payments, and clients, I would like access to more advanced and customizable metrics that allow me to more closely track how my business is performing. (Review from Capterra) 

One of my most significant pain points with Honeybook is their Reports sections. The reports are converted into downloadable CVS documents. The problem is that they are incredibly messy, difficult to understand and make trying to keep track of earnings a headache. (Review from G2)

Quickbooks 

Quickbooks is a cloud-based accounting software for businesses. It features include invoicing, time tracking, inventory management, double-entry accounting, bank reconciliation, and others. Quickbooks tends to be costly for small businesses requiring basic features.

Pros

  • It offers a wide range of accounting and financial management features,
  • It provides robust reporting capabilities, allowing users to generate detailed financial reports.

Cons

  • QuickBooks can be relatively expensive, especially for small businesses with tight budgets.
  • Customization options can be limited, restricting the software’s ability to tailor to specific business needs.

What customers are saying about Quickbooks

The user interface can be quite confusing and complicated, especially for those who are just starting to use accounting software for the first time. (Review from G2)

The price can be a bit much for some companies. The customer service is horrible, and answers are confusing once a person does answer to help. (Review from Capterra) 

There’s a huge learning curve for this software. (Review from Capterra) 

My least favorite thing about this software is that the longer it is up the slower it gets for me. (Review from Capterra)
