Small Business Best Friend

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Great experience, and customer service is QUICK and stellar. I'd absolutely recommend Stax to any Small Business.

Pros:

I loved the ease of adding clients, customization, the ability to send straight to their emails, I loved tracking AP/AR - all of it was so, so user friendly. Stax Bill also has a function where they give you a huge "run down" of all trends, marketing sectors, & accomplishments over a week/month/year. Very helpful to visually see what's going on!

Cons:

Sometimes invoice payment history before a certain date would just.. Vanish.

Alternatives Considered: Deltek Ajera

Reasons for Switching to Stax Bill: AP/AR capabilities within simultaneous project management.

Fusebill Subscription Software

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: We reviewed their features and compared them to other subscription software systems. They will do our invoicing and interface with our other systems.

Pros:

Our company chooses Fusebill as our Subscription Software and Billing System. We are in the process of implementing it now with our internal systems. Great standard accounting reporting.

Cons:

One of the limitations is the number of API transactions per day. They use more batch systems instead of real-time transactions. They are used to be the complete billing system.

Alternatives Considered: Recurly and Zuora

Reasons for Choosing Stax Bill: To buy an off the shelf solution.

Reasons for Switching to Stax Bill: A more friendly user interface and we like the people and the CEO.

Need to change a product's price for all customers? Look elsewhere.

2.0 7 years ago

Pros:

There are a lot of options for custom pricing for an individual subscription. Decent API, though limited in some odd ways (only certain major changes trigger events, others don't. SSO breaks standard login). They'll create some custom reports if a report is missing. They import data, just make sure that you're not live yet when they do it (they messed ours up when importing into live system). I think Fusebill is probably well suited to companies that need to bill a small number of clients with varying prices, discounts and terms. Too many customers, though, and manual updates become infeasible. A single, simple pricing structure won't be easy to update if you have a lot of customers.

Cons:

Price is on the high side. Slow UI response at the end of the month, though improved somewhat in recent months. Complex UI required a lot of training for our employees to complete simple tasks. Frequent trivial UI updates require additional training. Reporting is not configurable and marginally useful. Cost based accounting isn't supported well. Previously there was a frequent issue with their Authorize.net gateway integration that would show payments in an "unknown" state without notifying us, leaving the customer account in a weird limbo state. We've wasted hours manually looking through customers to fix, and hours working to satisfy justifiably upset customers. Has since been fixed for the most part, but "unknown" payments still crop up sometimes. Currently our biggest problem with Fusebill is updating the price for a product in our subscriptions. We have a price change, and WE HAVE TO WRITE OUR OWN CUSTOM CODE TO CHANGE PRICES on all of our active subscriptions. The inactive ones? They'll have the wrong prices when we re-activate them. Instructions on the custom code to update our subscriptions were given to us 13 days after asking for instructions on changing prices. We never thought that price changes would be a missing feature for a recurring billing system. Hopefully this information is helpful to someone else. WE REGRET CHOOSING FUSEBILL after wasting hundreds of hours, and I hope I can find the time to find and integrate another solution soon

Excellent Support, Excellent Team, and Ever Improving

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: Fusebill really listens to their customers and they care! They are very helpful in finding solutions to any issues and always come up with some work around.

Pros:

Their support team is amazing! Very quick and helpful responses by phone, chat or email. Also, they are always improving. I'm loving their new dashboard customization.

Cons:

Invoices are written in stone and once posted cannot be edited in anyway unless deleted (this causes movements on the GL). Reports aren't great but ALL the data points are there so if you are an Excel wiz you can make some serious magic. I wish they would become best friends with ChartMogul.
