Freshbooks works for VickeryHill!
In 2013, we made the decision to halt development of our custom time entry system (called 3hills) and migrate all time entry, expenses, estimating and invoices to up-and-coming Toronto-based Freshbooks.
We get a common dashboard showing time entered, expenses get imported automatically from our credit cards using their connection service and we generate expenses from within a system that lets clients review, comment and approve.
As far as invoicing is concerned, all time and expenses (on a project or client basis) can be invoiced at any time, and we even hooked up PayPal, Google Checkout/Wallet and our Stripe payment systems so they can pay with a third-party service or major credit card.
Freshbooks gives us the ability to setup recurring profiles for automatic invoice generation, as well as auto-billing for those clients who have monthly recurring bills that we would like to recoup immediately.
It’s early days, but the brave new world of Freshbooks is looking pretty positive (and time saving)!
