My answer is simple the best software to use for invoicing and accounting is quickbooks, I have been using accounting software since the late 80’s I used peachetree for my first business and later switched to quickbooks in the mid 90s now we use quickbooks online.
For most people this is not as simple or easy in the age of smartphones and social media there are so many that have resisted using software to automate their business mostly because of several mayor factors.
The thought of converting from paper invoices and spreadsheets to learning how to use software intimidate most solopreneur PMP’s.
If there is one thing a tech hates is doing paperwork, it’s time consuming and detracts from doing what makes money, serving a client.
A software program like quickbooks online will free up 10 to 15 hours per week that you can invest in more business, yourself or your family.
Here is the advantage of software it frees you up to get the only thing you can’t buy, Time.
When you do paper invoices in the field and then have to input them into quickbooks desktop you are doing twice the work spending twice the time.
If you are lean or have lean thinking what could you do with an extra 5 minutes per customer per day week or month?
With my quickbooks online software you can post the invoice in the field mail it to your customers and batch print at the office if the customer wants a paper invoice.
Integration with merchant account online payment make it a snap there is no reconciling, the payment is automatically credited to the customers account.
Classes are a great feature because you can create a separate pl for each route.
Territories can be tracked by city, zip or counties however you decide. If you have multiple branches one online software.
It eliminates the need to have an admin for 1 or more route business.
