I've been using FreshBooks since 2010. I've written quite a few posts about it over the years. I think it's a great way to track your time, invoice your clients, and keep track of your business expenses. If you'd like to try it out, click on the link below.

This is the second post in my series about bookkeeping and technology. Last time I wrote about the early days of moving my business online. Today I'd like to talk about the tech I use and how it has changed the way I run my business. For the sake of brevity we'll stick to what I use for client bookkeeping.
My basic criteria:
If my client is going to be using it, I want the interface clean and simple. There should be as little industry jargon as possible.
Is this a slight on my clients? Of course not.
My job as a bookkeeper isn't just to record business data and generate reports. My job is to make that part of an owner's business as simple as possible. I want my client to worry as little as possible about entering data so they can get back to doing what they do best.
