Easy and affordable

We have been using Freshbooks for over 3 years now and the service has scaled very well with us. The reports are very comprehensive and easy to run.

QuickBooks Online: Great Accounting Operating System for SMB Industry Apps

QuickBooks Online has made incredible strides in the past several versions--2 of the most important advantages of choosing QBO over other cloud-based accounting options is the growing availability of apps available for QuickBooks Online and how easy it is to send to your accountant--the accountant tools (that your consultant or ProAdvisor has access to are top of the line) . If you are a new start-up, small business, or desktop user of QuickBooks Pro or Premier, QBO is likely the best option that you have for accounting needs Don't forget to demo and test the apps..

A central hub for your business software

I have recently migrated 4 x group companies from Sage to Xero and the benefits are already paying dividends. Xero is so much more than an accounting system - it helps us solve lots of other business challenges too..

The Most Critical Review

FreshBooksFinance & Accounting
Steve Skinner, Owner, DotCom Information Services24th of February 18:30

Not for everyone, or even most...

I've been using Freshbooks for the last couple of years, and at first it was a breath of fresh air after getting away from Quickbooks (both online and desktop version prior to that). If you don't have a proficiency for accounting, systems like Freshbooks are great, so I enjoyed the simplicity of it.

Terrible customer service

We have used QBO, Payroll and Intuit payments for over 3 years now. The service continues to get worse.

NOT Friendly for service contractors who office out in the field!

So many issues, I don't know where to start. First off, creating quotes was just added, but only to the desktop version.
