I like the fact that hooking up the setup is really quick and that you can add your purchases in a few simple steps.

At this point I've been using it for over a year and the only thing I can say that I would like changed is to add a job name on the fly. Currently if a job name is not in my system I have to add it first before starting a purchase order.

There isn't much to dislike, I am not a frequent user but when I do I don't have an issue with it.
