A real time saver! (Pun Intended)

Review Source: GetApp

I have been using this app for almost five years now. When I opened my own business in January 2010, I quickly discovered I needed a time tracker and invoicing solution. I did try a couple off the shelf boxed solutions but they just didn't seem to fit my needs. I came across Billings For Mac very soon after opening my web design business and I have never looked back. With the recent cloud based workflow it has even further enhanced my current workflows. Having my desktop and devices all synced together means that Billings Pro works where I work. I can see myself continuing to use Billings Pro for many years to come. Thank you Marketcircle team!

Pros
Ease of use, Versatile, iOS Integration, Device Synchronization, Easy to set up, Recurring Invoices, Custom Tax configurations, Invoice Templates, Excellent Support.

Cons
No Canadian Pricing. Canadian users can expect to pay up to 50% more once the exchange and credit card fees are applied. Would be great to see some of the base Daylite functionality built into Billings Pro.

Pros
Billngs Pro for the Mac is great; it's companion IOS app, Billings Pro for iPad, leaves a lot to be desired.

Cons
Fix Billings Pro for iPad. The app is volatile, doesn't provide enough options for saving an invoice in progress. While the iPad app provides the means to record information such as purchase orders, it does not provide the means to include that field in the final invoice. The iPad app is a work in progress.

Pros
It is good when it works, but I just lost a week of tracked hours, as a freelancer that is just not good enough. All i need is something reliable... It also has sync issues and have to restart my mac for it work again... these things make it waste my valuable time I could be earning money and working.

Main Features

Estimating

Billings Pro saves small business owners money and time by not requiring them to create estimates from scratch for each client. Instead, Billings Pro provides its users with professional estimate templates that can be customized and distributed from any connected Mac, iPhone, or iPad.

Creating an estimate with Billings Pro should only take a minute or two. Just add the details (like hourly amounts or estimated time requirements), select one of Billings Pro’s high-quality templates, and enter the appropriate contact information for your client. Billings Pro will send the client a professionally formatted PDF estimate, with prices quoted by time, fixed amount, expense, or per project.

Time Tracking

Tracking time with Billings Pro is accurate, fast, and flexible. The solution is able to track time regardless of a user’s location, enabling team members to track time on their Macs, iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches. Tracking time with the Apple Watch is especially useful, since a timer can be started or stopped discreetly during in-person client meetings.

To manage your timers, visit the Notification Centre on your iPhone or iPad. This enables you to start, pause, or finish a timer without opening the Billings Pro app. You can also start and stop your timer from the menu bar on your desktop, or setup Idle Timer to automatically pause your timer whenever you’re away from your computer. (Billings Pro will prompt you to restart the paused timer as soon as you’re back to work.) Team members can also select set their own billing increments.

Billings Pro creates professional-looking invoices, with detailed invoice templates that can easily be customized with a business’ branding and logos. Users can bill clients by time, flat rate, daily rate (might be misleading, you can have a daily rate with the use of flat rates but its not its own “kind” of slip) project, or quantity of products. Billings Pro also allows users to add additional expenses to their invoices, such as mileage.

Invoicing

Billings Pro creates professional-looking invoices, with detailed invoice templates that can easily be customized with a business’ branding and logos. Users can bill clients by time, flat rate, daily rate, project, or quantity of products. Billings Pro also allows users to add additional expenses to their invoices, such as mileage.

Open Billings Pro on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad, and select a client or project to begin creating an invoice. Next, you’ll want to add your line items by selecting your time, fixed expenses, or quantity slips. Choose one of Billings Pro’s 30+ invoice templates, and then sit back while your invoice is quickly prepared. You can add comments to any invoice and subtract things like down payments or retainers from the final balance. It also has a recurring invoice feature.

Managing Client Accounts

Maintaining accurate client records is incredibly important for businesses, and yet it can be challenging to keep all data stored safely in one place. Billings Pro enables users to manage their client accounts anywhere, at any time. Payments and retainers can be added from a connected mobile device during a client meeting, and invoices can be updated and re-submitted to reflect the latest information in real-time.

To manage client accounts, just click on the client or project you’re interested in reviewing. Billings Pro lets you easily add payments and retainers see when previous payments were made, and determine what payments methods were used. By keeping work separated by project for each client, Billings Pro makes it easier for you to stay organized and stay on top of all unbilled or unpaid projects.


Integrations

Billings Pro currently integrates with Daylite, MoneyWorks and Quickbooks for Mac.


Pricing
