FreshBooks gets Fresh Looks: FreshBooks streamlines its user interface to add fun to bookkeeping

August 31, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
“Unaccounting” service FreshBooks today announced an overhauled and streamlined user interface. Known best for designing accounting and bookkeeping services that jive with their customers’ daily lives, this new design was inspired by countless hours of user feedback and testing and a overwhelming desire to make bookkeeping actually fun.

Nicknamed “Sexy Beast” by its developers, this release does more than simplify navigation, improve visual design, and add small touches of humor. FreshBooks has beefed up its existing offering by adding account statements and a vastly improved support ticketing system on top of its already market leading online time tracking and invoicing services.

“It’s all about our customers,” said Michael McDerment, CEO of FreshBooks. “We know what it’s like. When we were a consulting company, the last thing we wanted to do was our own bookkeeping. Our first step was making bookkeeping fast and efficient. Now that FreshBooks is successful, the second step is making bookkeeping actually delightful. Getting paid should be the best part of being in business, not the most painful.”
