Most success stems from teamwork. Whether it’s employees working together, or with clients and contractors, teamwork allows you to achieve common goals and get more done in less time. Plus, it contributes to innovation and guarantees more lightbulb moments in your brainstorms.

The power of working together is undeniable and has shaped much of the FreshBooks platform. So to help you unlock the full potential of your Team, here are 3 ways FreshBooks can enhance your collaboration.

1. FreshBooks Improves Productivity Through Time Tracking Features

Time Tracking in FreshBooks is a powerful tool that will help you grow your business by:

  • Identifying how you and your Team spend time and help pinpoint time-consuming tasks
  • Ensuring invoices accurately reflect hours worked
  • Helping with future projections and estimates by looking at how long similar projects took in the past

With Time Tracking you can:

  • Set a timer while you work or log time after
  • Easily add projects or services while the timer is running
  • Track your time against specific clients, projects, and estimates
  • View daily breakdowns and at-a-glance overviews to see how productive your Team is
  • See what projects are complete and pinpoint issues for projects that are behind schedule
  • Create accurate invoices within the Time Tracking dashboard
  • Run project analyses by accessing the Time Tracking information from the dashboard
  • Build business intelligence to price future projects
