Part of managing a business the right way is keeping your accounting organized. Piles of paper, forms, expenses, inventories, reports… What a load! And what tops that list and keeps the money rolling are invoices. Managing your invoices and sending them to your customers in a timely manner will surely have a positive impact, both ways. Nevertheless, using the classical spreadsheet to track your invoices can turn out overwhelming. Moreover, this process is error-prone, like sending duplicate invoices or receipts that contain fuzzy infos.
Turn this whole process hassle-free with our newest partnership: 123ContactForm’s integration with FreshBooks – a cloud accounting software with one central goal – offering service-based small business owners the ability to send online invoices, track time and capture expenses in minutes, the smart way.

Users can track the status of an invoice after it’s been emailed to see when their client has viewed it and, more importantly, paid it.
