Pros

  • Time tracking because you can account for almost every single minute of your day with detailed descriptions attached. The reporting of time came in very good use when clients questioned billing.
  • Robust billing portal that was pretty customizable.
  • Could track employee costs well once the correct numbers were placed into the system. Came in very handy for billing and company budgeting and projections.

  • Nicely laid out graphical interface - really easy to use and get basic tasks done.
  • Smartphone and Tablet apps are really effective and useful
  • FreshBooks continues to innovate and improve their product offering regularly

Cons

  • The overall layout and physical design of the portals could be simplified greatly. The program is anything but intuitive to use.
  • I found myself clicking what felt like a 1,000 times just to complete one small task. Billing was very cumbersome and the program did not integrate smoothly with Quickbooks as was previously promised.
  • Saving and making templates for billing etc. was a tedious process that also cost extra!
  • The program is as good as what you put into it, but they designed the software for a more particular one-sided way to work and manage, so it made customizing a project to your companies methods tricky.
  • Overall a very cumbersome program that looks as if it was designed at the start of the millennium and note 16 years into it.

  • Having bank feeds imported straight into the system like Xero does
  • Balance sheet is a bit cumbersome as it doesn't update figures automatically based on sales activity
  • Templated emails should have a quick warning before they are applied to the invoices

High cost is the main reason. Lack of real accounting abilities is a secondary reason. We're moving to Xero.

Well, it's pretty easy to get around and find what you're looking for. But certain things such as search and linking the company in the invoice would make it better

I think that their online tools and resources are great and concise but would like it more if you knew what improvements were in the pipeline. There are a number of features or tweaks that I've seen suggested but I don't really know if anyone from FreshBooks is listening to them or if they're being worked on.

I haven't changed my mind since my first evaluation. Freshbooks is still meeting my needs, easy to use, etc.

Alternatives Considered

I love Harvest, especially compared to Archioffice. It's very intuitive, simply designed and easy to use. Perhaps the billing isn't as robust or customizable as Archi, but I would take it over Archi any day.

Don't get me wrong — I like Xero for accounting purposes. But Xero's invoicing isn't great. There's too many features I depend on that FreshBooks has that Xero just does not. I need to be able to take deposits, send automatic reminders, and create an extremely user-friendly experience. Xero is great for accounting, but doesn't provide that experience. That's why FreshBooks was a no-brainer for me. I technically use both, but FreshBooks specifically for invoicing.

A good software just not as familiar as QuickBooks Online

Return on Investment

  • It positively organized our time tracking and the reporting was robust enough to use for client meetings.
  • It negatively took up more time to do certain tasks that shouldn't be so time consuming.

  • FreshBooks has allowed us to keep track of recurring client invoices and payments saving us time and money.
  • Time tracking has made sure we are correct with all timed projects as well as receiving the payments for it.
  • Time - saved us so much time being able to easily and effectively create estimates and invoices.
