Weaving the silk threads of Web 2.0: FreeAgent

September 21, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

FreeAgent is an online money management and accounting tool intended for small, service businesses of 1-3 employees. This will include most kinds of freelancers, contractors and consultants. Whether you are just getting started, or are already in business as a sole trader or limited company, VAT registered or not, FreeAgent can save you time.


Here are what FreeAgent has got to offer:

  • Manage your projects and contacts, track the time you spend and create flexible timesheet reports.
  • Keep tabs on your business and out-of-pocket expenses and quickly rebill to clients.
  • No complicated procedures, FreeAgent simply works out your accounts as you run your business.
  • Create great looking invoices with no fuss. Email them to the client and easily track through to payment.
  • Online banking that’s better than the banks. Compare accounts and track balances
  • FreeAgent makes sales tax reporting a snap, and you can easily customise it for your country.

Awesome huh? Well, I better discover more web-based apps like this, so as to fulfill my aspiration to be a future technopreneur.

Here are some of the insights and sentiments of users:

“Hats off to the FreeAgent Central team for doing a fantastic job creating all the tools I need to run my small business. The ability to see your business’ vitals laid out clearly and concisely is priceless. Financial decisions are much easier to make around here now.”  -Simon King (Organic Internet)

“It has saved me so much time and allows me to see an accurate picture of my business instantly.” – Richard Allum (ParaPlan Plus)

“I’m in the construction industry and have found it to be the perfect tool.” – Tom Creed ( T-Lec)

Two thumbs up for this. Never have I encountered at first glance a software that is versatile enough that it caters to a lot of facets of business: Accounting, Invoicing, Time Management, just to name a few. It’s indeed a virtual accountant on steroids as I might consider. Looking forward to using this app somwhere in the future. By the way, did I mention of its very sleek Web 2.0-ish user interface? 🙂
