The plugin offers some advanced option to automate status changes, including for custom order statuses, and to track status changes on both front and back end. But more importantly, their support is very responsive, adds functionality requested by users and helps with small customisations.

I tried 18 plugings. Created a new payment method and an associated custom order status. I needed that order status to change to another status after X time. This does this and more. Thank you, thanks thanks thanks.
