What Accountants Say
Love the program for its simplicity, logic and ease of use. Although customer service has been needed very infrequently, response is always excellent.
TPS– The best software choice I’ve made in my 40 years of practice. I’ve grown my practice 300% since I started on TPS and it has kept up and allowed me to maintain control over my practice.
I am just a small firm but after using TPS for just a short time I was horrified to realize how much I had been leaving on the table.
I just love the program and you and your staff have been so patient with me. Every issue I’ve had to date has been quickly and completely solved.
“I’ve been very happy with TPS over the years, both with software, network/user features and your staff’s support. I couldn’t imagine my practice without it.”
After evaluating over a dozen time tracking and management software packages ranging from $200 to over $3,000, TPS is our software of choice. Our search began in June 1999 and ended when we found TPS in May 2000. During this time we looked at virtually every software that includes the names “time” or “bill” plus many others. We believe the TPS time and billing program is the absolute best solution to our profitability management needs.
A good product and I’m glad we switched. Your technical support is great. Thanks for getting a change in your software so I can now print a zero balance statement. It is always comforting to be listened to as a client.
“TPS Software’s strongpoint to our firm has always been your technical support. Your staff remain the most knowledgeable of their product that the partners and myself have encountered of any software we use. The fact that you care comes through with each call. We never feel just like another subscriber on your client list….please do not change your personal approach. It is so refreshing in this impersonal world.”
“As a managing partner of a 20 person CPA firm I used some very expensive and useful time and billing software. When I left the firm in 2000, I kept our financial planning practice and was on my own with just one staff person looking for an alternative that was a bit more cost effective. I luckily found TPS shortly after they started their business and found I had access to all of the same reports at a fraction of the cost. If you are a CPA or any professional firm that needs to track client and employee productivity and profitability, TPS is by far the best cost/benefit solution I could find. Upgrades are fast and easy, the staff has always been a pleasure to work with and the product is unmatched for quality at an affordable price.”
