    Ben, thanks for reviewing e-conomic. Your comments about the style of our user interface have been taken on board and we are working on a look that’s more visually appealing.

    There’s a danger (exhibited by many other systems, with Sage’s recent effort being one of the biggest offenders) of allowing design flair to undermine operational efficiency. One of the benefits of e-conomic’s current UI is that it’s relatively easy and efficient for both business owners *and* accountants to perform bookkeeping/invoicing, which are transactional tasks. We enable you to do lots of things from one place and we eliminate key strokes by applying (user-definable) defaults to many of the screens.

    Customers want to get their invoicing and bookkeeping done with the minimum of fuss and effort. They don’t like jumping through lots of screens or being diverted by unnecessary graphics. The focus of our re-design is to deliver even more ease-of-use and to only use technology/tools that will further improve efficiency/speed.

    So, in summary, fair comment – I just wanted to explain the thinking behind our somewhat dull but (in the opinion of our customers) relatively efficient and speedy UI.
