Lauded as a response to the frustration caused by "slow, bloated accounting software," FreshBooks has positioned itself as the QuickBooks alternative, and has been an industry favorite since its initial release in 2003.

The Good

  • Great Features
  • Encryption

Great Features

In many ways, the positive things customers say about QuickBooks could also be said about FreshBooks. FreshBooks flaunts an impressive array of support features including demos and tutorials, an online community, live chat, a user-populated FAQ directory, and round-the-clock live customer support.

And like QuickBooks, FreshBooks makes it easy for users to gain direct contact with accountants and other industry experts for accounting and bookkeeping tips. It gains a slight advantage over QuickBooks by reducing its price by an average of five cents per package.

Encryption

FreshBooks touts 256-bit bank-level encryption, and is designed with a global market in mind. Its software supports over 50 different currencies and is used in over 120 countries.

The Bad

  • Expensive

Expensive

On the other hand, FreshBooks shares some of the drawbacks as its Intuit counterpart. In spite of the five-cent advantage, FreshBooks is still a rather expensive alternative to most expense tracking softwares simply because it does so much more than track your business expenses. And while FreshBooks does offer a side-by-side comparison between itself and QuickBooks, this comparison is far from objective, and may not provide an accurate reading of how the two companies really stack up.

The Bottom Line

In just over a decade, FreshBooks has worked its way up to being one of the most competitive small-business accounting software platforms in the world. It is a comprehensive and streamlined service for the small business on the go. And though you may not necessarily get an unbiased opinion about how FreshBooks compares with QuickBooks, chances are your business will be in good hands anyway.

Slickpie fills were important gaps in my business. I am Not an accountant or bookkeeper person. I can manage all my invoices easily. It links with my bank accounts and credit cards, gives me professional invoicing and tracks all of my taxes. It is an easier to use than Freshbooks.
