    Question Client Exec or Account Lab Plus

    Based on my current budget I'm looking for a billing solution.

    Currently both client exec and account lab plus seem promising.

    ALP still works out a lot cheaper than CE (which is $5/mo through my host).

    1. Is anybody using ALP? What is your feedback on this. Are there any issues with using and configuring?

    2. What about CE? What is your experience with this?

    Otherwise I do note that WHMCS and MB seem to be highly recommended solutions. Any idea on where I can get discounts on these?

    I'm starting out and so don't want to bear too much expenses.

    You should go for CE. It is the solid software for starting up...once you have the client base, then you migrate to ModernBill.

    CE has alot of basic function and controlling account creation and many more...

    We've used ClientExec, ModernBill and WHMCS. I'd recommend WHMCS all the way! Development for the software is ongoing and Matt, the owner, does his best to include the features that his customers demand.

    MB can import users from CE?

    That sounds good. Doesn't CE come with an inbuilt ticketting system?

    Is it recommended using it?

    I agree. WHMCS seems to be the most professional solution out there to date that I've seen.

    I agree, Ubersmith is definitely the more 'corporate' solution out of the bunch...it is very stable and extremely professional.

    Oh, you mean just like they "forgot" about php5?
    When Ubersmith catches up with the technology that they supposedly rely on, perhaps they'll stand a chance, but until then, not even worth mentioning really.

    Actually, it is my budget which is preventing me from WHMCS or MB as of now.

    I havent really liked Ubersmith support, so I am not going with them.
