"We BQE CORE to track time spent working for our clients and bill them for that time. All our employees use it to track time for all the clients we have. Sixty plus employees, and hundreds of clients. Easy time tracking on specific projects, very little training is required, and everything is right where you expect it to be. It's saved us lots of time in tracking time to bill customers. Easy to use, very little training required. It does time tracking and reporting on specific projects very well."

"We're a small firm that varies in size and BQE CORE allows the flexibility to expand and contract and provide our staff the tools to manage their workflow, work within budgeted fees and time allocation, and track milestones and progress of project delivery. While many simply clock in, they don't monitor their progress and BQECORE provides a daily snapshot of time management and meeting project schedules, while I was the principal of design can do more of that…design!"

"We use CORE for Project Management, Time & Expense tracking, Accounting and Billing, Human Resources and as a CRM Platform. Being able to input information into one platform for use across many different modules saves time and energy on our administrative staff. All of the data is tracked and displayed in efficient widgets and customizable dashboards. The customized reports are very helpful. Customer service is responsive and able to sort out issues quickly."
