What accountants love about Ignition

  • "Using Ignition has probably saved me anywhere from 10 to 20 hours a month, not having to prepare engagement letters, track payments, call clients, and review and approve invoicing. All of that is gone"

  • "I can't imagine running a business without Ignition. It's made me so much more money than it costs. I never have to track down money now. I never have to create an inefficient proposal. Ignition has also helped my confidence, slowly but surely I learned to respect myself enough to require payment to begin services. And the support reps are great!"

  • "We’ve gone from spending three months on admin (billing clients and creating engagement letters) to about two days. That’s a 97% reduction. It’s incredible to think of how much time we wasted simply because we didn’t know a better alternative method existed."
