Toronto, Canada —May 7, 2018 — FreshBooks, the #1 invoicing and accounting software in the cloud designed exclusively for self-employed professionals and their teams, is announcing an integration with Microsoft Outlook. Soon, hundreds of millions of Outlook customers will be able to pay invoices and bills from right inside their inbox, with just a few clicks.
