Work in the cloud

Instead of waiting for Quickbooks to download, start managing your cash flows right away online. It takes two minutes to set up an account, and once you're in you can add clients, rates, projects, and look over a visual model of your cash flow. When you leave the office, log in as needed from your mobile devices to check how things are going. Once you’ve finished a project for a client, create and send an invoice from your mobile device. Using an online invoice generator that is free will put you at a competitive advantage, releasing you from paperwork to work primarily in the cloud.
