Simplify Expense Tracking with New FreshBooks Extension Integration on Dropbox

FreshBooks and Dropbox have partnered together to help make expense tracking more efficient.

As a business owner, you have lots of tools in your toolbelt. But if those tools don’t talk to each other, you’re stuck logging in and out of accounts or copying and pasting the same information between apps.

At FreshBooks, we carefully curate complementary apps and integrations that help you take efficiency to the next level and focus on what matters most: running your business.

And it’s why we’ve partnered with Dropbox. With the new FreshBooks Extension integration on Dropbox, you can now send scanned receipts in Dropbox directly to FreshBooks.

Read on to see how this integration can help you simplify expense tracking.

What Is Dropbox?

Dropbox is the world’s first smart workspace that is transforming the way people work together.

With Dropbox, you can:

  • Store and access your files from anywhere
  • Securely send large files and collaborate on files shared
  • Back up all your most important files
  • Connect your files to other tools—like FreshBooks

How Does Dropbox Integrate with FreshBooks?

With the FreshBooks Extension integration on Dropbox, you can send your scanned expense receipts in Dropbox directly to FreshBooks. With this streamlined workflow, you’ll no longer have to jump between apps, saving you time.

Here’s how it works.
