Who BillQuick is For
Though the customization possibilities are attractive, BillQuick desktop is likely overkill for most small firms who won’t need features like vendor credit documentation or a collection center. Additionally, having to buy and install a copy of the program on each of your machines and run a server to sync data may be time- and cost-prohibitive for firms that don’t have a standalone IT department. If your firm is larger, however, and is looking to get a handle on its data and wants a lot of customization, BillQuick may be a good choice.
BillQuick Online gets around the problem of multiple installations by being a cloud-based service, but it is not legal-specific, so lawyers may find its framework of setting up “projects” a bit clunky.

Things You Might Want To Know
BillQuick desktop. BillQuick’s desktop version is very comprehensive and handles time and expense entry, billing, invoicing, and payments. You need to install it locally on each computer you use, and if you’d like all your computers to be able to talk to one another, you’ll need to install it on your network. You’ll also be able to track working and idle time within the desktop version.
BillQuick Online. If you choose to use BillQuick Online, you will be able to use BillQuick in your browser. You can host it on your server or in BillQuick’s cloud. Your data will be stored in both the cloud and on your computer, and you can sync between the two. An additional benefit to its online version is that you’ll be able to convert appointments into time entries through its Microsoft Exchange integration.
Both the desktop and online versions offer almost exactly the same features with only a few differences. Whether you go with one or the other will depend on your preference for accessibility, maintenance, and control over data.
Security. Data will be stored on your computer or server, so you are in control of the level of security for the desktop version. If you use the online version, the company says they take “all reasonable precautions” to keep your data secure and use redundant storage hosted by Rackspace. You also have the ability to set permissions so you can control who has access to what.
Migration. BillQuick can import text files, ASCII text files, and Excel spreadsheets. They also have a utility to import Timeslips data.
Customization. BillQuick offers custom programming services so that you can set up reports and invoices tailored to your firm, allow you to set up third-party application integration, and even create applications for you.
