FreshBooks

I have a new client who is adamant they want to use something called "Freshbooks" for producing invoices.  Has anyone any experiecne of using this and if so what are the pros and cons?

I'm pretty sure...

... that a supplier of mine invoiced me via FreshBooks. I was impressed as it was very automated and there were some nice functions. He said it was easy to use.

That's all I know about it, but at least it's a response :)

Ditto

I too get invoiced via Freshbooks and it looks slick and efficient.  Have a look at the website, I think it started as a pure invoicing facility but may now have more bells & whistles.

It's been mentioned in glowing terms recently by David Terrar on the Cloud Computing discussion group under "What about other Cloud Apps" so you could try a PM to him?

Great for Costing

Freshbooks is a great package if you have multiple employees who all work on a time basis, or multiple expenses which you need to recharge on invoices. Consider linking this with a KashFlow or/and Receipt Bank and you almost hae a fully automated accounts system.

In which case...

Following on from chris above, FreeAgent has all those features and is a fully functional online accounting package, it seems a little inefficient to have invoicing divorced from accounting?

FreshBooks

Hi Polly! I'm Kasey, the Accounting Ambassador at FreshBooks. I work with accountants whose clients use FreshBooks, and help make it easy for small business clients to get their FreshBooks data to their accountants in a way that is easy and helpful. I know I'm biased for the pros/cons list, but here's what I'm hearing from accountants:

Pros: Really easy for their small business clients to use. Tracks invoices, expenses, online payments, outstanding accounts, and numerous reports that export to make the accountant's job easy.

Cons: Not a double-ledger accounting system. While most FreshBooks customers don't need that functionality, it is something to be aware of. Also, if your customer is inventory-heavy (like a retail store), we might not be the right fit (that would get a little tricky in FreshBooks).

I hope that helps! Give me a shout if I can help more :) I'm [email protected]
