Time Management and Billing

Starting a new business is a challenging and sometimes daunting task.  Start-up costs can be astronomical!   Anything you can do to reduce those costs is huge.

I just started Your Digital Coach late last year.  I’m a big believer that an economical solution to any software  need can be found somewhere on the internet.  I was investigating accounting software and chose Simply Accounting on the advice of several friends, some of whom are accounting professionals.  I was told that all I really needed was the basic version.  For about $50 I thought that would be a great idea.  But when I started looking into it further I realized that the basic version did not include time billing.  Add another $250 to get that option in Simply.

So, I started looking around on the internet.  I found many pieces of software that either didn’t do exactly what I needed or were “clunky” in the way they functioned.  You know what I mean – you have to hold the CTRL key while simultaneously clicking the left and right mouse buttons and crossing your eyes to get it to do a common  task.  Ok, so I’m exaggerating  a little.

Anyway, I stumbled across a program called Fanurio.  Fanurio does everything I need, and more!  Every time I think it can’t do something the tech guy tells me how.  Fanurio keeps track of my customers and projects, income  and expenses, and does all my billing.  All for only $59 (US).

I mentioned their tech support.  This is one of the best companies I have ever dealt with for technical support.  I have never had to wait more than a few hours for a response to my email queries.  I usually hear from them within an hour.

Also, because Fanurio is built with Java it can run on just about operating system.

If you are looking for a time billing solution then look no farther.  Fanurio is the application for you.
