BQE Announces New CORE Enhancements That Improve
Operational Efficiency for Professional Services Firms
The company's 24th major update extends to virtually every module of the platform

TORRANCE, Calif. –-March 16, 2021 -BQE Software, a leading business management software provider to professional service firms, recently released another powerful update to the company's flagship BQE CORE platform. This marks the company's 24th update in less than 4 years.

This most recent update enables CORE users to sync email communications with their CORE CRM contacts via a seamless integration with Microsoft Office 365. Users can create time entries from To-Dos and follow-ups. New time tracking tools have also been added.

“Time management is an area impacting all firms,” said Steven Burns, Chief Creative Officer at BQE. “To help with this, users can now add CORE timers to their home screen on iOS devices using the new home screen widgets. This gives users the ability to watch a timer without opening the app, which boosts efficiency and billable hours. With just a tap on the widget, users are taken to the CORE mobile app, where they can start, pause, continue, or stop the timer.”

Other major updates include ePayments, budgets, and a referral program, benefits.

“Since we launched CORE in 2017, BQE has been committed to continuously updating the software to best serve the needs of our clients,” Burns added. “Stagnant software leads to inefficiencies in workflow. Software that evolves and improves over time, boosts our customer’s businesses. Our commitment to helping CORE users is captured best by the frequency and
quality of our updates.”

CORE’s 24th update also makes enhancements to reports, timecards, global settings, QuickBooks integration, and invoice templates, all of which make CORE more efficient, ergonomic, and useful.
