10 New Integrations for a Productive 2021

We’ve rounded up our 10 most recent integrations to help your business be its most productive self this year and next.

2020 has been one crazy year. And while you probably can’t wait for 2021 to roll around, we’ve rounded up our newest integration partners to help make next year a little more productive (and hopefully a little less stressful).

Check out the list below. There’s sure to be a new addon to help you transform your business into a lean, mean productivity machine (even with all those WFH distractions).

New Integrations That Work Anywhere

Stay Connected to Clients Through Gmail

In 2018, Gmail had over 1.5 billion active users (that’s over 20% of the global population!). So chances are you or your clients use Gmail on a daily basis.

Luckily you can now add Gmail contacts as clients, and create and email FreshBooks invoices directly from your Gmail account. You can also see client billing statuses, so you know whether their invoices are overdue or outstanding. And the best part: All these updates made in Gmail automatically sync to FreshBooks.

Shift Business Online With Shopify and Squarespace

If your business wasn’t online before 2020, this was probably the year you embraced the digital space. And FreshBooks can now help you track online revenue thanks to new integrations with two of the most popular eCommerce platforms: Shopify and Squarespace.

Syncing with either platform means bringing all products (items), orders (invoices), and payments received into FreshBooks. You’ll now be able to seamlessly track every sale you make while getting an accurate view of how much money you’re earning.

Quickly Collect Reviews With OneLocal

You’ll never have to ask for feedback again thanks to OneLocal’s integration. When an invoice in FreshBooks is paid, the client will automatically be sent a text or email, asking them to leave a review on sites like Google or Facebook. And with OneLocal’s easy to use dashboard, you can collect, read, and respond to any and all reviews. Learn more here.

Use Indeed to Connect With Talent Faster

Post jobs on Indeed right from your FreshBooks account. Simply fill out the job information, add a budget if you want to sponsor the job listing, and post it to Indeed. Although Indeed is available in over 60 countries, the FreshBooks integration is currently only available in the U.S., UK, and Canada. Learn more here.

U.S.-Only Integration

Automatically Send Marketing Emails With Signpost

With Signpost’s integration, you’ll never forget to email warm leads again. After syncing with your FreshBooks contracts, Signpost will automatically send them marketing emails based on the schedule you set. Learn more here.

FreshBooks is Fully Compliant With Making Tax Digital (MTD)

Get the Bookkeeping Support You Need From Mazuma

A bookkeeper is a lifeline for a growing business with increasingly complex financials (and little time to manage them). It’s why we partnered with Mazuma, so you get access to a dedicated expert Accountant who keeps track of your books, handles accounts, and files your taxes on your behalf with HMRC. Learn more here.

Canada-Only Integration

Make Payroll Simple With PaymentEvolution
