Question: Name your favorite invoicing app or software for service-based businesses (please include a link) and explain why.
"Poshly uses Plasso since it allows us to send and accept quick, secure and easy payments. Setting up payment forms and templates is very easy and there is no transaction fee. It integrates seamlessly with Stripe, too. Plasso alerts us as soon as a payment is sent, plus it's just as easy for clients to use as it is affordable for the business to set up."
Intuit Field Service Management
"Intuit Field Service Management is amazing for the trades industry. It's web- and app-based, and can connect to your QuickBooks financial file. Inventory tracking with workers on the go is always a difficult subject, but Intuit Field Service Management allows clients to maintain visibility into who is taking product from the warehouse and where the product is ending up."
"For several years, we manually created invoices and emailed out PDFs to customers because we couldn't find a software solution we liked. We now use FreshBooks and love it. Creating and managing invoices is simple and you get weekly or daily email updates. My favorite part is the automated email reminders where we mention upcoming late fees, which has led to quicker payments."
"We love using Indinero. The invoicing is simple and allows you to track all of your finances cleanly. While cash is the lifeblood of a startup, time is as critical as anything. What we love about InDinero is that invoices seamlessly fit into our financial books, saving lots of data entry time. It's incredibly helpful to have everything in one place whenever we need to do sales analyses."
"I use PayPal for nearly all of my invoicing. In just a few clicks you can create a professional invoice that can be paid with a credit card if necessary. PayPal also makes payments a breeze for all of my international clients by greatly simplifying and speeding up the process. Plus, any withdrawal from PayPal is credited to my business checking account the next day."
"Wrike is a web-based project management platform that allows every member of our company, no matter what their position is, to connect, stay on top of their assignments, and work together toward goals. It is a great way for leadership teams to easily view employee progress, create assignments and deadlines, and bounce ideas back and forth. Wrike keeps progress flowing at a constant rate."
"We use Hubstaff for our staff and for invoicing clients. While they track time spent on projects, employees can also track their own productivity with screenshots and keystroke frequency measurements. This tracking automatically generates invoices, and whenever a client wants more info about how that time was spent, we've got it. Plus, paying the team is automatic thanks to a PayPal integration."
