Why Other Small Business Owners Made the Switch

Work Anywhere

When I was starting my company, I tried both FreshBooks and Xero. I wound up choosing FreshBooks because I needed to track time on my phone, and only FreshBooks offered that feature.

Track Your Hours

I chose FreshBooks over Xero because I needed to keep track of my hours. FreshBooks lets me compile them into a nice tidy invoice which breaks down the cost of all my time.
