Amplify your Business with Apps That Plug in to FreshBooks

November 18, 2015

Being a small business owner means wearing a lot of different hats. You’re likely managing the day-to-day business operations, sales & marketing, and customer support (to name a few) – all while working to continuously perfect your craft.

Your needs extend far beyond billing, especially as you begin to grow your business and take on more clients and projects. Manual tasks that used to be manageable begin to turn painful, and efficiency becomes increasingly important to your business’ success.

Let Technology Bear the Brunt of The Burden So You Can Focus on Adding Value

Nothing beats the joy of finding a solution that eliminates a mundane task and opens up some brain capacity for you to focus on the things you really care about – just think back to when you first started using FreshBooks! Realizing that you’re going to be saving an hour a day (or even just 5 minutes) makes you want to do a little dance and shout from the rooftops.

There’s an app for just about everything these days. And not just one – for every business problem or process you struggle with, there’s an ever-growing selection of solutions for you to choose from.

Use Your Network to Narrow Down The Options

With so many solutions being built to support small business owners, there’s a ton of competition for your attention. Doing your research and testing out different solutions can be time-consuming and overwhelming. The last thing you want do is spend hours looking for a solution to make your life easier, only to get frustrated and give up.
