It is indispensable to the way my business operates.,Accounting! As you'd expect. Makes it much simpler andmore cost effective. In-coming and out-goings are recorded and assigned to projects and accounts. My accountant can access my books and reconcile so much more easily than trawling through spreadsheets. Time billing - time spent on projects/client work is recorded and is ready to be invoiced as required. Saves so much time and prevents inaccuracies. Invoicing - again, it should do this well and it does. Non payment reminders are automatic and clients have no excuses for not knowing the status of their account. Account dashboard - gives me an instant overview of the health of the business (am I on track to meet my yearly targets) and my accounts.,When explaining bank transactions it's necessary to click the 'More Options' to add a receipt number. Perhaps receipt numbering could be automatic.,10,The ROI represented by FreeAgent for me has been in the reduced time to produce accounts - shaved days off the end of year hassle. The ease of time tracking has also introduced a more disciplined approach to time tracking and project/client account management.,FreshBooks,Implemented in-house,Invoicing - adding time spent/expenses to an invoice is very easy. The dashboard is very clear and useful.,Yes, but I don't use it,10,10Awesome accounting software for awesome people!I use FreeAgent every day to produce estimates, create invoices and follow the payment through to my bank account. I process VAT, payroll and all my expenses through it as well and have been really impressed with it. I have used it ever since I started my company and couldn't see myself running the business as I do at the moment without it. My accountant also has access to the back-end data and can produce all the necessary reports straight out of the software without me having to worry about it.,Producing estimates/proposals and allowing you to easily convert them into invoices and then follow it all through to payment. Keeping tabs of all my expenses and payments. Producing the necessary documentation for VAT returns and Self Assesements.,I am looking forward to the Android app being launched. Being able to produce more in depth proposals which aren't just itemised accounts would be great.,10,It allows me to quote for jobs incredibly quickly as I can log on from anywhere.

Bank feeds work perfectly, making bank reconciliation incredibly easy. When unsure, and what makes FreeAgent stand well ahead of its competitors, is absolutely amazing support - fast, effective and just plain helpful beyond expectations.,There's very little FreeAgent doesn't do, but if you spot something it can usually be added or there is another way - remittance advices are one area I would like to see added. The newly introduced smartphone app, like most other software provides in this market, is quite restricting. Having a mobile responsive website makes those restrictions disappear.,10,Professional and uniform offering providing great confident customer service.
