Pros

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.

CB

Cheikh B.

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.

KB

Kristina B.

Fresh Books is a must have for businesses that want to simplify their accounting software. My team loved all the options and great support.

WW

Wesley W.

Pros

I love especially that this software integrates with Concur, and has a mobile app that has a very friendly UI. The easier it is for employees to enter information, the better.

Jason N.

The ability to segment users and managers is essential to our company's structure. Being the administrator and having the ability to go in and fix any user's time sheet is also great.

GG

Garth G.

This is super easy to use. I mostly use it to report hours worked and it's better than any of the other programs we used before.

JE

JULIA E.

Cons

We would lose all of that if we switched, so unfortunately we are stuck with having to use this horrible new format.

Steve H.

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.

JB

Jeff B.

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.

KM

Khurram M.

Cons

Sometimes we get synchronizing problems. Not sure if we can easily edit erroneous of incomplete entries after saving.

Viveka N.

At times my entries seem to magically disappear from the description section which can be frustrating if I can't track what I did on a particular day and time.

JP

Jeannette P.

Adding and deleting employees is confusing. They make it difficult to keep the customer base out of the tracking.

Like it But Lacking Decent Timer

Reviewed 5 years ago

This is a review of Freshbooks Classic. They have just come out with a new version that I am not using due to a lack of addins at this early stage. I use Freshbooks to invoice my customers for the time and materials I spend on their products. I have recurring invoices that automatically bill my customers on the first of the month for their monthly recurring services and any labor I may have spent...

Pros

Very easy to invoice.

Cons

Time tracking methods/tool are totally lacking.

Hi Kent! Tim from FreshBooks here, thanks for taking the time to leave us a detailed review. I'm happy to hear that you're enjoying using the auto-bill, recurring invoicing aspect of the software! I definitely hear you when it comes to the lacking experience for time tracking.

Great for small business

Reviewed a year ago

It has helped me prepare my proposals, invoice, keep track of time and expenses for each project - all in one software. I Did not like other softwares as I did not have much time to do intensive studying. I needed a software that was easy to learn, implement and incorporate in my work.

Pros

Easy to deploy and incorporate in the activities of my consultancy

Cons

Time tracking - confuses projects with the clients.

New redesign is a much more intuitive and efficient experience

Reviewed 5 years ago

In the first version of Freshbooks, it did the job, has basic feature sets like invoicing, receiving money via Paypal, etc. But the thing that didn't stand out for me was the time tracking, it felt a little more intrusive and complicated than it needed to be. This new version of freshbooks seems to have solved that with quick shortcuts to track time, so you can just one-click to start, and then log the hours to a client/project quickly thereafter. If you're a small business or individual/freelancer, Freshbooks is a great tool, especially since they have a free plan. Give it a shot, you won't dissapointed.

Pros

New interface is simple, easy to use. Fast UX for time tracking.

Cons

An even faster mac menu bar time tracking would be awesome.

Pros

We love the ability to view when clients view our invoices. It's also nice to grant permissions to our internal team for viewing and editing invoices.

Cons

We're excited to see the new interface b/c the current one is a little clunky. Also wish it had better time tracking and 3rd party integrations for time tracking with PM apps like Asana.

Freshbooks makes Business easier

Reviewed a year ago

The software is great, but the best part about Freshbooks is their customer service. I can call them on the phone and a friendly, helpful human will answer in 1-2 rings.

Pros

I love the simplicity ease-of-use. It's greatly simplified my accounting process, and I especially love how easy it is to export reports for tax time.

Cons

I wish that the time tracking dashboard showed more details about logged time. Sometimes you have to export a time tracking report just to see how many hours your contractor and/or employee worked last week.

My FreshBook Review

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

The FreshBooks website interface is outstanding and it offers value for money spent. FreshBooks allows sceptical users try their service for 30 days in order to let them know if it's the best finance manager for them. FreshBooks is fast, reliable and make a user enjoy managing his finance. FreshBooks unlike many others has a mobile application for IOS and Android, this further paves way for ease of use... It is the best when it comes to saving billing time and tracking expenses appropriately. The pricing is quite fair compared to its offerings. FreshBooks helps you save money and time.

Cons

The metrics, though not totally off, can be better. Also time tracking tools seem to be missing.

Good product but very buggy and major issues persist for months (or years). They make you go through so many hoops just to troubleshoot.

Pros

Invoicing Time Tracker Online payments

Cons

Two majors issues that are making me look elsewhere. 1. Time tracker doesn't always work. You pause your time and return later and it is still going. There is a huge disconnect between the app and website time tracker which causes sync issues. I've used a couple of other time tracker software tools and I didn't have this issue. It is important to have accurate time and I constantly have to adjust. 2....

Accounting + Easy = I'm not kidding you.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Freshbooks - truly for entrepreneurs on the go. In my freelance work I needed mobile access to accounting software. I sold product to retail clients - sent invoices from my mobile on delivery. When I did my consulting, I used the project and timer features. Holy cow! Freshbooks was extremely malleable to my business. It was able to export reports to my accountant. I was able to access it on my smart phone. The support was robust and friendly. I found it was fairly intuitive to use. If I was still freelancing, I would still be using Freshbooks. If you need a solution to keep you organized - look no further.

It's ok for freelancers but not the first that I would recommend

Reviewed 4 years ago

User friendly time tracking and invoicing.

Pros

The interface is easy to use and great for invoicing and time tracking. There are limited reports and while you get basic bookkeeping features, I wouldn't call it an accounting software. This is ok for freelancers that need time tracking and plan to do all of their bookkeeping, for everybody else I recommend other services.

Cons

Accountant access is view-only, so I don't recommend it to my customers that want me to do their bookkeeping, yes they could just create an username for me, but that is not ideal to my workflow. Customer support for accountants is painfully slow, I submitted an inquiry that took weeks to replied to. For these reasons I no longer recommend this software to my clients.

Excellent product for the "accounting-challenged"

Reviewed 5 years ago

I run a small private yoga business, and Freshbooks has saved me hours! Easy to jump right in. I especially love the time tracking feature. Works seamlessly with my bank account. So glad I found it.

Pros

Time tracking and the reports it can generate.

Cons

I have a little trouble with duplicate entries -- I enter expenses manually and then they are also entered because I paid for them from my bank account (which is connected). I guess that's a user problem, not a Freshbooks problem.
