PC Magazine Editors’ Choice: FreshBooks

February 1, 2008

It looks like the Academy Awards aren’t going to happen this year, at least not in their usual form.

Well, fine by us — that just means Juno won’t be stealing our thunder anytime soon, because we just nabbed ourselves an Editors’ Choice award from the one and only PC Magazine!

Reviewer Edward Mendelson explains why we earned four-and-a-half stars plus the big trophy:

FreshBooks tends to confirm my sense that the best online service is a highly focused one, not a jack-of-all-trades that offers everything from an abacus to a zen-koan generator.

We couldn’t agree more.

We’re the solution for your day-to-day small business needs: clients, invoices and time tracking. For folks who still require accounting features, expenses are weeks away and we’re actively soliciting feedback on our upcoming QuickBooks integration; and of course, everyone’s already got a favourite Zen-kōan generator of their own.

But when you just need to get that invoice out, we’ve got your back.

It means a lot to us, and not just because we get to crack out the beers and celebrate — it’s because FreshBooks isn’t just some product of ours, it’s our raison d’être. We want to positively impact every single one of our users.

Speaking of which, it turns out we weren’t just the editors’ choice:

If you hire me to write for you, expect to get an invoice via FreshBooks.

Thanks, Edward. That means more than any review ever could. Welcome to the fold — and thanks for choosing FreshBooks!
