FreeAgent partners with Nimbla
FreeAgent has joined forces with Nimbla, a company that helps small business owners by checking their clients’ credit reliability and offering insurance against outstanding invoices that are deemed to be at risk because of the client’s financial position.
A survey conducted by FreeAgent in spring 2018 backed the need for the partnership after finding one in 10 small business owners had a client that never paid them at all.
The partnership also follows the introduction of the late payment Insights into FreeAgent last year to allow our their customers to identify clients who regularly settle their invoices late.

Pandle dashboard customisation
Pandle has announced a new dashboard customisation option for their users, who now have the option to filter different settings to show personalised results. Various graphs can be chosen to see the financial summaries adapted to the needs of each business.
According to Pandle, the new feature will save their users from searching for various financial graphs to find the one that shows the information they need to see, as well as simplifying the dashboard view by hiding the measures they don’t need to see.
