Some things i've been trying today and interestingly i like them.

As i go through my V3 Beta of Blesta, i was for the first time introduced to PostalMethods and Interfax.  Both of these are integrated in Blesta v3.  I would like to see these in hostbill but what's the point in even suggesting them as it'd become a $900 module. 

PostalMethods mails your invoices to customers, Interfax if the customer selects it as an invoicing option, faxes their invoice.

Other then that, i for the first time fully tried out IPS Board.  I have to say what an awesome forum it is today.  It never used to be as nice as it is now.  I remember it in the old days, ugly and bloated.   As i tested it, i though a lot of the stock features would work so well on THIS site.  Anyone have a spare license to use here? lol  Not sure what your thoughts of it are Lawrence but the "solved" buttons and the 100 other little things just fit in so nicely to what could be used around here.

Eitherway, bought myself a license for one of my 9000 businesses and should be using it soon.  Thought i'd comment on how sweet it'd look here :P

The problem with Blesta is that development is slow and I don´t see it having the features I need at least in 5 years from now.

We can say what we want about Hostbill but development is fast, and even Ubersmith cannot catch up on them in terms of features so far.

I wanted and want Blesta to be an alternative but I was spoiled with several hostbill features to the point I cannot leave to another software if it does not offer the same plus more.

Hostbill as a company is a pain, but I do like the software and at least me I plan to stick until it stops working.

I tried IPS some years back and it was amazing. I assume it has evolved allot since that time but since I have several vbulletin licenses, some which I don´t even use, I just use what I have instead of buying new software. Vbulletin does has lots of plugins and integrations, must which I don´t use anyway, but it works very nice as well.

I used SMF allot before, and if I had to go with a fee option it would be SMF.
