Effortless for new users

January 2023

ALPS

Pros:
Effortless to learn and easy to organize things. Very easy to track time log and record invoices.
Cons:
Mobile application is not similar to desktop one. Loading issues and some glitches when submitting timecards.

Unbeatable when it comes to financial reporting and document management.

January 2023

Dale R.

Architecture and Planning

Pros:
BQE is amazing for everything related to project management, be it time tracking, financial reports, or document management. Everyone loves using it in my company since it handles our individual tasks so perfectly. We are able to track the progress of all projects and quickly assess whether a project is going to be profitable or not. We don’t use it for accounting since we already use Quickbooks for this purpose, and BQE is fully integrated with it.
Cons:
It does not open files quickly with a single or even a double click. To open a file, we must repeatedly click it, resulting in multiple instances of the same file open. We have skipped it entirely for file management and use the normal Windows file manager instead. Although it's not a huge inconvenience, it still shouldn't be an issue to begin with.

Great Support!

Pros:
I like Core because it is easy to keep track of my time, and expenses for projects.
Cons:
I do not have anything bad to say about core.

Reliable, robust, efficient, and eye-pleasing!

October 2022

Blake T.

Industrial Automation

Pros:
Our admin and IT departments look after the implementation of software, so I don't have much say in which features are available to the staff, but from what I can see, I'm sure there are plenty more than I have access to. I use the BQE Core for the basics, and that's good enough for me. It is intuitive and easy to learn, which enhances the UX and reliability in the long run. If I suspect that a particular project's task lists will be difficult for me to manage on my own, I upload all of the data onto the software and let it do the work for me, such as timesheet management. It would have taken a lot longer otherwise.
Cons:
The layout is a bit odd, in my opinion. I mean, it is intuitive enough, sure, but the features are out of sync with each other. You'd expect to move from one feature to a relevant one, but you won't find it next in line. Other than this, the support team is also not great, especially at handling this issue of mine. They usually stop responding after a while if they can't fix an issue. However, I'd still appreciate them since they try their best and fix other problems as soon as they can.

Changed how we used to manage projects for good.

Construction

Pros:
BQE is simple enough to be utilized for our project management even with our busy schedules due to a shortage of staff. It is very flexible and can be modified to our liking. Reporting is something I appreciate the most since it enables me to include everything our clients need and attach invoices along with them. All the projects are well organized, and relevant third-party apps can be easily connected to work simultaneously on all the apps within BQE. It has made project tracking a lot easier, which has resulted in time and cost savings for us.
Cons:
The software is made in such a way that everything you need for project management is thrown together on the homepage, which makes it a bit cluttered. While it is good that you have everything you need on a single page, it would only be helpful if all features were better organized. It took me quite a while to learn stuff and be efficient at using the software, but it was worth it in the end. Training sessions are excellent, and the support team gives quick tips from their own experience to make our experience faster and smoother.

Outstanding when it comes to manufacturing, but needs to be flexible with pricing.

October 2022

Barbara W.

Mechanical Engineering

Pros:
In a manufacturing environment, you rarely have time to track each activity manually. That's where I have employed BQE. All the tasks associated with various manufacturing projects can be tracked with ease through the software, and the reports and status can be quickly shared with the clients. Our clients can see for themselves how far their product has come in terms of development. I found it to be very flexible, and I have customized my display as much as possible to make it comfortable to use. It is excellent at interacting with Quickbooks, which makes it a great accounting companion as well.
Cons:
They charge you for all the features they offer, which are great but not necessarily needed by everyone. I would appreciate it if they amended the pricing structure to cater to those with lower budgets and allow them to just choose the features they want the most. It works well as an accounting companion, but it would be ideal if they improved the existing accounting features so that I could avoid using Quickbooks, which is currently an additional cost. Gantt charts are also not as flexible as they should be, as pointed out by our project managers.

Great Program

This program is very helpful.

It still has some kinks here and there.

Entering time is a pain. BQE Core makes it bearable.

Blake Tucker

CSE Icon

Pros:
BQE Core is an intuitive and easy-to-use platform for the time entry and project tracking functions that I use it for. I can tell that it can do a lot more, and I hope to explore all it's potential in the future.
Cons:
There are a few UI behaviors that I would consider quirky, but most software has some form of this.

Pros:
Integration of time tracking, project management, invoicing, accounting all in once place. Tech support is available and they often solve the problem.

User interface is really clunky. Tech support is available but sometimes hold times are long; they usually will solve the problem but sometimes will take some time.
