Those of us that have businesses and were looking for an alternative to Quickbooks it was always a struggle. A few years ago Freshbooks came out and since then we have never looked back. Freshbooks is described as cloud accounting and allows you to run your accounting remotely. Up until November 2012 there was no app available for the iPad but once it was released it sealed the deal for me. Freshbooks is a fully functioning accounting package that allows you to track expenses and time, create estimates and invoices and have custom reports for your business. Having the ability to talk with a client on the road and adjust an estimate or send an invoice can be integral to getting your project and payments in line. More than once I have been on the phone with a client and adjusted an estimate on the spot. The client was then able to log in and accept the estimate while we were still talking. Gone are the days of having to wait to get back to the office to sign into the accounting software making for delays in getting the work done. The monthly fee for Freshbooks is nothing compared to what it can do for you and your business. Do not hesitate sign up for Freshbooks and see what I am talking about.
