5 star CIS software

An excellent program. The support is really good. I have been using this now for years and every time I have experienced any problems they have gone to great lengths to help to resolve it. It is a program that can be tailored to most industries especially good for the construction industry with a comprehensive CIS module incorporated in it at no extra charge. Would highly recommend it to anyone.


Super helpful.
Would recommend 100%

The help desk personnel respond extremely quickly. They are tremendously helpful and patient. I needed to purchase Clear Books when MTD came into being. I'd always processed my accounts manually. Clear Books have made it very easy for me to use online software after 13 years of pen and paper.


Clearbooks is a very user friendly…

Clearbooks is a very user-friendly software package. Almost every element of the software is intuitive to use and where it is not their Customer Service is the best I have come across. They come back to you very quickly with an answer and are always very helpful, friendly and professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
