Having worked with many accounting and invoicing systems over the last 20 years, Optimize Business knows a good billing solution when we see one. That is why Optimize Business uses and recommends Freshbooks. It offers the convenience of cloud accounting and an easy of use and efficiency you have to see to believe.
- Forget about backing up your invoices: it is done in the cloud
- Stop fussing with an email or envelope: it is delivered in the click of a button
- Convert that estimate to an invoice and email: done in seconds
It is great for small business start-ups who can use it free for three or less clients and even better for bigger businesses who can streamline their invoicing process with the click of a button.
