What do you like best?

The purchasing aspect only calls $9.99 a month and allows my business unlimited records and unlimited amount of users for the business. They also allow a free limited trial to try it out! Also love that I can cancel anytime. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that the distributor aspect costs about 7x as much, but has more options for it, and goes up in price per specialty area. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great option to consider and can utilize OfficeBooks anywhere anytime. Paid packages include a lot, however the free trial is a great snippet of what you are getting into. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My issue is the new features every month that I cannot easily adapt to, however I do enjoy the automatic data backup and how it updates monthly and I an import from Excel. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Used office Books to keep track of new start up I was helping out with. It was organized and kept things in all one place Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to keep up with work and invoicing even on the go. The tools are all there and easy to get to. Creating a work order is simple and quick, everything is straight to the point! It's an easy program to train other employees how to use without overwhelming them. If there is an issue most times we are able to get through it using the built in help without having to dig too deep on our own. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The one thing I would change is a step by step instructional for users who are completely new to the program, that would take much time off of the employers trying to teach 10+ people in an office how to use the program and all of the MANY features it has. The help system is great but sometimes not in depth enough especially for first time users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Invoicing, purchase orders, work orders, some inventory. The benefits are being able to spend more quality time on other projects instead of finding your way around a program and all of your information contributed towards it. Its easy to search and input everything from orders and invoices to inventory. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

This CRM has plenty of room for notes and is easy to integrate with current database. With the notes section all members of the team can keep up with all customers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that during the database integration new customers cannot be added. Luckily the integration was quick. The notes field was not immediately available for all members of my team to view. Which is essential, once the integration was complete this problems was resolved. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Officebooks is simple, direct, and user-friendly. I always appreciate an intuitive program, and this one, while it has its own bells and whistles, it prides itself on being basic enough that you don't have to invest a ton of time before getting up and running, and overall it is a good product for a small business. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if there were an android app for mobile-office work, and it is definitely developed for small businesses (which isn't necessarily a con, but definitely something to keep in mind). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's great for organizing purchasing and sales orders, and the fact that it's available to all platforms makes it super nice on the go. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I really enjoy how easy this application is to use! Very user friendly, easy to understand, and easy to navigate. Reports are easy to create and maintain, and the reports are easy to track.
