Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

BQE CORE Suite reviews

Bill quick is a perfect solution to create invoices and be able to bill many different attorneys on different projects.

- Robert C. M. Business Development Director

Implementation took longer than expected but has proved worth the extra time to get it right.

- Steven B. Accounting Assistant

I have used much better tools than CORE. In a pinch, it gets the job done, but I've heard a lot of complaints from team members over the years and it might be worth it to look elsewhere to save yourself the headaches.

Hive reviews

Hive has made communication between our company's team easy. Now, we don't have to constantly call each other, have follow-up meetings, and walk into each other's offices. We can simply log into Hive and see who is doing what. We know when things are due and what needs to be done next. Because of Hive communication is easy so we can focus on getting jobs done for clients and getting them done on time.

- Sadie P. Media and Marketing Manager

Timely response to chat logs. It would be a great product if the e-mail integration actually added value to ones workflow.

- Jeff C. Sales Operations

Time tracking needs some work, but that is eclipsed by the wonders of version control and mark up of assets prior to approval.

- Christopher K. Owner

Pros & cons


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
The functionality and features of BQE software are beyond what we currently use and as we explore more it is really exciting to see how this software can help us in other areas of our business
There is a huge improvement the way we run reports in BQE now as compared how we used to
The various ways of applying filters on reports is awesome
This software makes it easier to track hours on projects to better understand profits and the overall productivity of the staff
It is the people at BQE that make a huge difference."

Our project managers thought it was hard to use, and didn't feel our data was always accurately depicted
I find the billing process steps a bit awkward but I am used to them now
It is annoying to have to look for the most recent invoice under Invoice Review once the invoice is processed as final
Early on we had a difficult time understanding the vendor bill workflow
No real changes to suggest as of yet
There is already a lot to absorb."


I love it because it makes my work easier
Creating and assigning tasks is easy and fast
Hive does a great job connecting all the pieces needed for a project in one place
It helps keep everyone on the same page and connects them to the resources, links, comments, and next steps
It's great to have a centralized space to manage all the company projects and view them in a single, customizable timeline
It's easy to amend as things inevitably shift
Hive has been a great help managing sales orders, manufacturing processes, quality inspections right down to shipments."

That renders HIVE e-mail integration about useless if you get a lot of e-mails with attachments
For me Hive is a no go for that reason
Notifications or follow up requests can get lost after read and can be difficult to find
The chat constantly messed up and either didn't show messages or just didn't notify me
Also, i have noticed that when people send images on chats or groups they never load, so i have to close the software down and reload it to be able to see them, which is a pain."
