“This is a prestigious partnership and is excellent for our clients because using FreshBooks helps business owners enormously.

“FreshBooks carried out a customer survey with more than 2,000 respondents which showed their clients save 192 hours a year by using the software. That allows entrepreneurs to put more energy into serving their customers and finding new business, rather than chasing invoices or totting up mileage.
“Our clients now have the opportunity to join a community of 24 million people who have used FreshBooks, a company which has been recognised with ten Stevie awards for the best customer service in the world.”
