PROS / You can choose from more than 100 design templates, 10,000 fonts and 1,000 images for your checks.
CONS / Only telephone support is available, and you must pay extra for it.
VERDICT / Checksoft Home & Business is a great check writing application with features that allow you to personalize checks to match your company profile.
Checksoft Home & Business is check writing software designed to meet your small business's basic accounting needs and allow you to write and print checks.
Checksoft Home & Business provides more than 100 business and personal check design templates. You can insert your company logo or personally design the background to create your checks. You can upload a digital signature or two and add it to the check layout. The MICR line printed on the bottom of checks is included on check templates.
Once you have chosen a check design, the checking account information is automatically applied to the template fields, except for the Pay to the Order of field, where you can insert a text box and type in the information. You can also preview checks before printing.
The application allows you to import data from other accounting programs such as Quicken and QuickBooks. Whether you use Checksoft to manage your business or personal finances, this application makes it possible for you to enter several savings, checking or credit card accounts into the application and view balances and transactions at any time.
You can schedule bill payments and pay bills in advance through the bill scheduler, which reminds you when each bill is due. It also automatically records the transaction for you. You also have the option of setting up recurring payments to simplify the payment process.
Checksoft's interface functions like a checkbook register. You can sort transactions by type as well as categorize them and search for specific entries.
Checksoft Home & Business has a help menu within its application, but otherwise, it's not an especially strong program in terms of support. There is no email support or an online user guide. There is a knowledgebase, which is set up more as a question-and-answer forum. To speak to a Checksoft representative via telephone, you need to pay for a help ticket.
Checksoft is versatile check printing software with several features, including a checkbook feature to help you track spending. However, its customer support is not as good as most software even if you are willing to pay. If you are comfortable with programs and want a lot of design choices, it's worth considering.
