Some usability issues still remains

I use Freshbooks for the last 2 years. Overall, I am satisfied, It does the basic invoicing thing you require.

Xero- Beautiful accounting for both the business owner and accountant

As a small business owner and accountant, I have tried many accounting softwares. I was a Quickbooks Pro Advisor for five years and relied heavily on an expensive and inconsistent server to share data with clients.
