Over a million people in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia and other countries use FreshBooks for tracking their time, invoicing and managing customer accounts online. The team at FreshBooks have really succeeded in bringing a ‘fresh’ approach to what they call “unaccounting”. Their goal is to be easy to use (like us), to save you time (like us) and to make you look professional (like us).
It’s not surprising then that people who love FreshBooks, also love Xero and have been asking us for a while to integrate the two systems. We’ve been working with FreshBooks on this and are thrilled to tell you that we’re pretty much there.
If you’re a FreshBooks user looking for a great online accounting system, or a Xero user looking for a great time tracking and billing system we have the solution. FreshBooks and Xero are both online, totally secure and designed by people who are fanatical about saving you time and helping you manage your cashflow.
