Latest for FreshBooks’ growing ecosystem includes Google integrations
Toronto, ON – – FreshBooks is collaborating with Google to help self-employed professionals and small business owners maximize their productivity and stay organized on the go. FreshBooks’ integration with G Suite (formerly Google Apps For Work) was built for business owners who work and collaborate in teams or on their own, helping them do more with their time. Following the launch of a redesigned platform in September, FreshBooks is increasingly adding to its ecosystem of cloud integrations to help its customers run their businesses better and more efficiently.
FreshBooks integrated with G Suite allows customers to enjoy a consistent experience across all of their work devices. The G Suite integration has three key benefits which enable FreshBooks customers to work faster and stay up to date on their business relationships:
- Invoice Google Contacts: When typing in a client’s name on a FreshBooks invoice, a business owner’s Google Contacts will populate in the client drop-down list, and when selected the client will automatically be created in FreshBooks. This enables business owners to invoice up to 3x faster and cut down on manual entry work.
- Preview Client Emails: On the Client Profile Page in FreshBooks, the relationship feed will show business owners the most recent invoicing updates as well as their Gmail correspondence with that client. It’s an easy way to manage relationships with clients without having to leave FreshBooks.
- Single Sign-on: Business owners can log in to FreshBooks directly from their G Suite Dashboard, helping them to easily access their favourite apps all in one place.
For FreshBooks’ customers who don’t yet have a G Suite account, they can sign up for one directly in FreshBooks. G Suite is available to FreshBooks customers for $5 per user, per month, and is billed as part of a customer’s monthly FreshBooks subscription.
“It’s great to be collaborating with Google on such a seamless integration, one that enables our customers to do their best work more efficiently and easily,” says FreshBooks co-founder and CEO Mike McDerment. “With our all-new platform, we’re continuously adding more partners to expand our ecosystem of useful integrations, and now faster than ever.”
FreshBooks’ current partners include:
- G Suite
- OneSaaS (which also includes Shopify via OneSaas)
- 123Contact Forms
- You Don’t Need A CRM
- Zapier (which can connect FreshBooks customers to over 700 integrations, including MailChimp)
- Avalara TrustFile

For partners and customers, FreshBooks has also introduced API documents to build custom solutions, making it easy to create web, desktop and mobile applications. Practical uses include automatically creating and sending invoices when users sign up on their website, pulling lists of client information, copying data to 3rd party services, and more.
