Getting Paid: Online Invoicing Applications

Face it, we all know that invoicing is essential to any business (we all want to get paid), but it's something we almost all dread.

As a small business or freelancer, we've all played around with Excel Spreadsheets and Word templates, or less than user-friendly accounting packages to manage the issue of getting paid. But there is a better way with modern, cloud-based apps. Not only do they allow you to easily access your info from almost anywhere (some even have mobile apps), but the burden of data managed is partially alleviated. Computer crashed and backups not up-to-date? No worries, your invoicing info will be intact.

Where some apps stick to invoicing only, others have grown to include time management, expense tracking and even employee management. Whatever level of performance you are looking for, the examples below may show you that invoicing can actually be an enjoyable experience.
