Cloud based invoice and time tracking apps can be a huge benefit to consultants and freelancers. Personally I use a web based time tracker to track my billable time. I don’t currently use a cloud based invoice service but I have in the past. Of the many benefits of web based invoicing is the ability to generate invoices while on the road or even in the client’s office.
Today I’m going to take a quick look at Zoho Invoice and Time Tracker. Zoho Invoice is one of many apps that Zoho features. They offer a full line of cloud based apps for business and personal users. Zoho Invoice is free for up to 5 customers. If you have more than 5 customers (let’s hope you do) then you’ll need to upgrade to a paid plan. But the free version is not feature limited beyond that so you can test it out completely.
From Google Play
