Pros

It has a great interface which makes it feel very easy to use and has a great set of templates you can use from the beginning for various accounting needs.
For a small company as myself the excellent invoice features has been very helpful and useful.
FreshBooks combined with other applications is a great tool. In any case, if you want to create invoices and send it in a split second and then track and monitor its progress, I recommend FreshBooks.

Pros

Our experience has been great. Customer service is responsive, and the improvements made are helpful.
Overall great tool and gets us away from using Excel as we always have in the past. Also quick to be able to go back to prior periods and review outstanding issues.
Response time would be same day on the occasions we needed assistance. I had the chance to meet Customer support representative and was very impressed with the knowledge she possesses.

Cons

We would lose all of that if we switched, so unfortunately we are stuck with having to use this horrible new format.
It is really frustrating to have a client not be able to pay through the invoice, and for this reason, only, I have been considering a new software company.
Tier based pricing from Lite to Premier is a bit confusing. WePay advocates having a Chase bank account for faster processing otherwise fails to integrate.

Cons

Sometimes you get logged out of the system and have to log back in. Not a major problem but can be inconvenient.
Multiple layers on some menus. These can get confusing to remember where you are at in a menu and where you would need to got next.
The way you attach back up files is confusing.

FreshBooks

I like to expand my business with them

Reviewed 6 years ago

The benefits are the possibility to expand my art business to other countries and be able to make deals and invoices from these software, is a great software to make sure I'm on the right direction

Pros

Is very intuitive and easy to understand, also I have my process of working with costumer almost standard, so is very easy to implement because I already know my business. It could help me with the account part of the business.

Cons

I really don't have any least about this software, in a way because I only use two or three ways items to invoice, which are art related terms. The expenses are really simple as well.

My Fresh Books Opinion

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Ease of use, offers cloud based accounting for my small business and coordinated features which allows me time to focus on my art and not on the 'technical' side of sales such as invoicing and payments.

Cons

Honestly could not find anything I did not like about FreshBooks, a pleasant surprise.

FreshBooks

My Favourite Accounting/Bookkeeping Software

Reviewed 8 years ago

Freshbooks is easy to use, intuitive, and painless. It does everything I need: estimates, time tracking, invoicing, tracking payments, and all the other things that need to be tracked in a business. The reports are great for tracking how I'm doing and for pesky tax time. It is as if Freshbooks was in my head when they developed their software. I have used other programs in the past, but this one is my favourite. It allows me to track what needs to be tracked in an easy and painless way, giving me the time to spend doing what I do best: art. I have recommended this to my friends, family, and colleagues, and will continue to do so.
