Pros

The most helpfull thing i found in freshbooks is that it helps us managing our bills effectively and you don't require any professional to do this for you any more. It is very good for small business.
Another great feature of Freshbooks is the availability of Support Tickets. I was very pleased with the opportunity to change the standard templates for emails.
The UI is awesome ,easy to use, also that you know when a user has read the invoice is great. The app is awesome as well.

Pros

I love that Big Time has the capability of integrating a variety of content that can help us organize systems and better perform.
I look forward to continuing to work with representative with helping me grow my knowledge of the software and utilize all of the great functions Bigtime has to offer. Thank you representative.
My overall experience with BigTime has been great, the software is easy to use and navigate, and the customer support has been fast and helpful in answering any questions I have had.

Cons

I emailed them about this dangerous lack of basic security features and as of December 2019 Freshbooks says there is no plan to add two factor authentication in the future.
I had a very difficult time using the bookkeeping software on the program. I couldn't customize taxes, and I found that because I have no background in accounting I was really messing up frequently.
The features and functionalities are limited. It takes little bit more time set up and charges on each transaction and need to pay an account after second client.

Cons

This makes it difficult to integrate BT invoicing directly into QB data. A problem made even more difficult given that all of our projects to date have been invoiced from QB.
Management denied my request. This is foolish, short sighted management.
Timesheets dont get easily submitted, it gives errors which causes submissions to fail.
