Every service-related business – or freelancer – needs an invoicing tool to send invoices to their client. It should be simple to use yet produce professional enough invoices that will give a positive impression to your clients and hopefully make getting paid simpler.
If you search the internet, you will come across many invoicing tools with different pricing and features. Depending on your business size, you need to choose a service that suits your needs and can be easy on your pocket as well. It’s not so simple to find the perfect tool, so we have gathered a list of some of the best invoicing tools for your daily use.
Let’s take a look. (more…)
Time tracking apps are among the most predictable apps. They’re all designed to keep track of the time you’ve worked on your projects so you’re fair to both your clients and yourself. Then, the apps typically let you turn your timesheets into invoices, and perhaps track time on the go. Boring, but necessary.
And then there’s the new Timely. I’m pretty certain you’ve never seen a time tracking app like this. It’s the one time tracking app that you’ll actually want to use, it looks so nice. Plus, it’s simpler than most to use, thanks to its drag-and-drop calendar (apparently a popular new trend).
As a freelancer and small business owner (you’d probably be surprised at how often those two coincide), I’ve spent some time looking for ways to track how much I’m working and what I do with my days. For me, this has a couple purposes. If my hours are billable (they’re usually project-based, but once in a while I bill by the hour), I can keep track of how much money I’m owed. The second purpose is simple time management — it’s a lot easier to keep on task and on track if you know where your time is going.
I’ve recommended a couple different apps for the latter — my favourite is still iDoneThis — but I haven’t had a chance yet to talk about the former. With Ding, I’ve finally found an app that really hits the spot for tracking billable hours. Let’s talk about what makes Ding worthwhile for freelancers and why you might be interested in adopting it for your own small business.
Billing by the hour for services rendered is fast becoming the norm. It’s just not freelancers who use time trackers to bill their client on an hourly basis. After the financial downturn, companies large and small are forced by clients to opt for hourly billing instead of monthly retainers or a lump sum project fee.
When businesses start using a certain type of app, a handful of features and a gorgeous user interface won’t just cut it. Advanced functionalities, integration with third party apps and a sensible workflow to get things done quickly become the norm. When I came across Time Panel, I noticed that it doesn’t have as eye-catching an interface as its competitors.
So, let’s see if Time Panel scores in the other key areas to make up for it.

Let’s take a look and see if it’s the time tracking and invoicing app we’ve all been looking for.
You need to keep track of the time you spend working. You know you do, but you don’t simply because it’s too difficult to keep up with. You need a simple way to keep track of the time you and your team spend working, and that’s exactly what Timely, our sponsor this week, is designed to do.

Currently, one of the most imperative skills we need to work on is time management. Tracking the amount of time you spent on different tasks can be as difficult as the task itself. If you do not know how many hours you have worked on a specific project, it creates problems when you have to invoice your clients. It becomes even more difficult when you are working as a remote team. What do you do in such a situation? If you search the internet, there are hundreds of time management applications that help you become more prolific. But the problem with the majority of the applications is that some of them are too expensive while others are difficult to use and requires time to get used to the interface. If you are looking for an efficient time tracking application, I would suggest you to give the application called “Timely” a try.
Timely is a very simple and easy to use application that helps you track your billable hours and tells you how much money you have made during the month. The application has user friendly interface that makes logging hours spent on different projects one click away.
Invoicing, time tracking, and project/task management: the three app categories that seem to dominate the world of web apps. It’s incredible how many apps are trying to target this same space, and after a while it feels a bit repetitive. There’s only a few apps that feel really innovative. Mostly, you end up wishing that the best features of all of them could be combined into one great app, while you keep using the one you started with just because you’ve already invested time and money in it.
There’s a newish invoicing and time tracking app, though, that’s unique and innovative enough that you owe it to yourself to try it: Paydirt. It’s been on our radar since mid-2012, and has gotten better with time, enough that it’s the time-tracking app you should try if you don’t have one already. Keep reading to see why.
Running a small business is no small feat, and it helps to have the right tools handy to help keep things running smoothly, whether it’s internal communication, managing projects, or staying on top of finances.
