Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

It serves our purposes well - we can easily create invoices, see a history of a client, create recurring profiles, etc. I love the home page view that shows you how much has been invoiced over the past 5 months, how much money within each month has been received, and your total outstanding invoices. It's a great snapshot of how you're doing.

My main concern is not being able to have a higher amount of clients. The lite version is $15/mo which only allows you to invoice to up to 5 clients. My business manages about 12 regularly and a few random extra clients per a month. This means that I have to pay an extra $10 a month to do something I can do for free by myself. Yes, this app can save you time, but if you're good at staying on top of your expenses, hours, etc, there is no reason you can't do this without expending too much extra time on your own.

I'm really considering switching to Nutcache but am hesitant in doing so because I'd have to manually input all of my prior expense and information if I wanted to have access to the historical data within the system. Additionally, I'm not sure how long Nutcache will be around and if they'll be adding any of the features that I really want like being able to use it as a way to easily track all my business income and expenses.

At the current needs of our business, FreshBooks suits us perfectly - it allows online access by our accountant to the system for GST purposes, easy input of expenses and tracking of Profit and Loss statements. FreshBooks customer service is great as well - very understanding and accommodating.

While I am no longer using this product in my current position, we likely would have continued using FreshBooks until and unless an alternative with a broader featureset was made available within the same pricepoint. Ultimately FreshBooks sold itself as more than it was capable of at the time, but still shined in its core features. This was worth retaining a subscription for some time, but not enough to generate deep loyalty.

Like I have mentioned throughout this review, we are very satisfied with FreshBooks and it has been an invaluable tool. We would be unable to function without a system such as this. To be honest, similar products do exist, but we have no desire to make a change. As the saying goes, " If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Additionally, the costs are very reasonable, especially considering all the use we get from this product.

Some companies pretend they listen but Freshbooks actually added a feature after I asked if they could add a subject message to the email; This is your 1st payment reminder, This is your 2nd payment reminder, etc. so it helped us track which payment reminder when out to the client.
