Customer Testimonials

Jennica P.

Architecture & Planning

5 star rating

"We really love it!"

"We like the reporting features and use them often, the rich billing features as well. It has taken us away from using a separate software for managing contacts, which is very helpful. We've also now started looking at performance reports monthly and it's definitely helped with solving some efficiency issues that we experienced before using BQE Core."

Faith A.

5 star rating

"Switching to Core has been a big improvement."

"The overall experience has been good for the management and our staff. Tech support people are very knowledgeable, professional and patient. In our previous software we were not able to run reports that are helpful to our business. After switching to BQE Core we are now able to run all kinds of reports and it has been a big improvement just in this area. We are utilizing Core for time and expense tracking and billing. All our staff use it and with everything in one place it makes data mining easier."

"It is easy to invoice projects and for time entry."

"Love the dashboards and overall beautiful looking interface of Core. We have been with BQE for 17 years and 3 years back we made a decision to switch to all cloud BQE Core and we love it. This was the best decision! All our employees were onboard without any difficulty as it is very easy to navigate in Core and everything is consistent, with the result there is no learning curve between the screens. We are also experiencing that it is easy to do invoicing and track time in Core. We are taking advantage of some of the advanced features of Core like 'Report Scheduler' that has helped us automate the reporting process. Our clients electronically receive statements and accounts receivable reports resulting in less human involvement in maintaining the cash flow."
