Any Mac user who makes a living that results in a bill to a customer will understand where I’m coming from and what we have in common. Making money often requires a bill; an invoice. Here’s the easier way ever to invoice for your work.
The Invoices In My Head
Those of us who fall into the professional mercenary class as independent contractors know the value of an invoice.
Just as college professors must publish or perish, independent contractors must invoice for their time and efforts to make money.
While not nearly as full featured it has matured to the point where I would recommend it to other Mac users. Why not just recommend Office Time instead? It’s a customer support issue. OT is a more complex beast.
Invoicing works well for Mac users who need to send out bills for work done but have never done computer-based invoices before. It’s good but it’s entry level.
Creating an invoice in Invoicing is almost child’s play.
Setup client detail and select a client from the left sidebar. Add items to the invoice. Invoicing can calculate rates or price to units and a total (and even add tax).
Invoicing is smart enough to pull contacts from Contacts in OS X, and can generate customized reports as needed. Invoices can be printed or saved as a PDF file to be emailed or printed and mailed.
What Invoicing does not do is track the time you spend on a project or task (which is what I like about Office Time) and there’s not an iPhone or iPad version.
For basic invoicing for Mac users who’ve never used an invoice app before, Invoicing does the job. No extra bells and whistles, not complicated learning curve– just quick invoices.
