I've tried every time-tracking/invoicing app there is for freelancers, but when I finally tried AND CO I was instantly sold!
Both the web app and mobile app are a delight to use. They are fast and just work without any hiccups. The features are great and have helped me save a ton of time on admin work. Sending an invoice or a contract is a breeze. You also get a real, live human to ask for help! Need to invoice a client? Have a question about your taxes? Simply send a message to your CO and they will always have your back!
Their dev team is also great! I requested a couple features and they were released within a few weeks. That showed me that the team at AND CO listen to their customers and give me confidence to use this app for the long-term.
It's not often that I fall in love with an app. AND CO is the exception. Highly recommended.
Makes it super easy to invoice in a beautiful simple way that clients love. Offering credit card, PayPal and bank ACH payments really feels like it helps me get paid faster and looks professional. It's also a breeze to confirm that I've received payment and is helpful to get reminders of outstanding invoices. Love hearing the chime when money rolls in.
Can't believe I forgot to mention the support crew. I'm so used to banking/financial apps making service an afterthought. Whenever I have a question or issue they're on it within minutes and always eager to help.
We use Xero to control our income, expanses, VAT predictions. Great tool. It takes a while find out how to control all over Xero but in the end it is huge time server and we know pretty sure how the business stands.
The UI for entering time is tedious and creates too much friction. There's no evidence of usability testing having been done. Dates never include the day of the week—the main thing a real user is interested in. Even when there's only one "task", you must enter it again and again for every single time entry. There's no way to enter hours for the different days of a week together—you must laboriously create a new time entry individually for each day, and manually fill out each field using the MOUSE! (Keyboard support exists but is not smooth.) The API support is non-existent unless you have admin-level access to the organization, so you can't work around the horrible UI by creating a better programmatic interface for yourself.
- I love Mint for personal expense tracking, it's been around for a long time. Otherwise, just switch your personal checking to Simple Bank and they take care of tracking your expenses for you in a similar way with no fees for anything, ever! However, all banking is done online and checks can't be made yet, only debit card transactions.
- Deductr automates the tracking and documentation process for business expenses and mileage bringing consistency and accuracy to what is typically a tedious and painful task that most business owners don't do regularly. Link your bank account, credit cards, debit cards for automatic tracking at the point of purchase. Use the phone app to track your mileage using the GPS feature. Deductr customers save between $1000 and $6000 per year on their taxes by maximizing their available tax deductions.
