We have been using Platypus for the past 16 years.  It hasn’t changed much in 
all that time.
Client is still windows-only based. Still runs on SQL server.  There’s an API 
exposed now, but it’s still clunky.  I don’t want to run a VM just for 
Platypus! Give me a web client!

We’ve wanted to change for years, but Powercode never ticked all the right 
boxes for me. I’m a UI snob and want something that looks like it had some time 
put into the user interface.
For me, Powercode felt like it was still using the same design from the early 
days and they were just hacking in features on the same backend code.
Every year at wispapalooza we’d walk the floor, seeing what billing systems 
were out there.. hoping and praying something better was coming around but 
never found anything until Sonar started development.

Sonar looks to be built with Web 3.0 (is that a thing now?) in mind.  I’ve been 
eagerly awaiting their features being pushed out each month so we can finally 
bite the bullet and migrate.
They expose web hooks, publish their APIs and all the methods you can use to 
integrate with your own systems (critical to us). Integrations with Slack for 
ticketing is a big plus.
We’re finally excited again about a billing system and I’m planning on 
converting by end of year.

We’ve had demo’s from all the ones you’ve listed.  Most wouldn’t scale to what 
we needed. I think one had Java client (ugh).

I suggest checking out Sonar.. it’s how a billing system in 2016 should look, 
operate and perform.
