Small business owners are increasingly using mobile to run their business, performing functions like sending invoices, tracking payments, making notes, and logging expenses. Mobile work is the new norm, and the flexibility of being able to work while on the go has a significant impact on a small business’ bottom line.
In its Q2 2015 earnings call, Apple announced it is working with software providers to bring a broad range of innovative mobile solutions to customers. As part of this, FreshBooks, a cloud-based accounting software designed exclusively for service-based small business owners, today announced that it is working with Apple to enhance the award-winning FreshBooks iOS app that helps small business owners streamline their workflow so they can focus on growing their business and get back to doing the work they love. The app enables them to save time, get paid faster, and run their business from anywhere on the iPhone and iPad.
“Service-based small business owners – people who get paid for their time and expertise – are the future of the economy, and their unique accounting needs are incredibly underserved,” said Mike McDerment, co-founder and CEO, FreshBooks. “Much of their time is devoted to tracking their hours, generating accurate invoices, and trying to stay on top of their cash flow. By teaming up with Apple and its market-leading mobile platform, FreshBooks is delivering on our commitment to make running a business easy and efficient.”
FreshBooks recently worked with Apple to release Touch ID and Passcode, the first of many new features to come for FreshBooks customers who use iOS devices. Currently available for download from the App Store, they ensure a simple, secure way for users to log into their FreshBooks accounts on their iPhone or iPad.
Touch ID is available on iPhone 5S and newer, iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3. It enables the use of a fingerprint as a passcode to log into the FreshBooks mobile app, effectively enhancing user experience by improving the speed and ease of use, while providing advanced security of confidential business information.
The new Passcode feature offers a second layer of security whenever users open the FreshBooks app on any iOS devices, providing peace of mind that sensitive information within the app remain secure.
FreshBooks delivers a comprehensive small business mobile solution that includes the following elements:
· Intelligent mobile solution: A made-for-business app will simplify user workflow to create a seamless invoicing experience. This will include easy-to-use features designed for generating accurate invoices, tracking hours and mileage, managing expenses, and enabling mobile payments.
