Well said. Seriously considering Xero, evebn though more expensive, surely Xero wont be this unreliable.

I managed to log-on to Reckon early this morning, but after a drop-out have been unsuccessful logging on all day. We run Apple i-Macs and have used safari & firefox to no avail.

It concerns me that other users are finding other company's files when they finally get on. Reckon, someone will be held accountable for this horrendous incompetence!

I have been using reckon for at least 12 years and continually get frustrated with the down time due to problems!!  Find it very expensive having staff sit round or go home because of reckon crashing in one way or another.  When this problem is solved I am living in hope that it will be a fresh start.

Some good news among these other complaints! I have just logged in successfully using internet explorer 11 with no problem. There was a funny black screen but it had the fields to login so I entered old user and password. That worked. I usually use Firefox v31 currently and so does my client. It also logged in successfully -
