If you are using billing software of just thinking of trying one, it will be interesting for you to know about features, usefulness and limitations of billing programs. In my experience, you get only advantages from using billing software.

First let’s talk about benefits that you get from using billing programs. The most important factor is time saving. You can choose whether you want to spend 20 or 5 minutes to create an invoice. Billing software is created in order to save your time on creating and sending invoices. If you want not only send invoices but also register incoming payments, time saving will increase accordingly. The next advantage of billing program is low mistake risk. You are secured from mistypes, wrong calculation and invoicing wrong customer. Providing a lot of different features also is an advantage of billing software. You can adapt billing program to yourself considering specifics of your business. For example you can define when, to whom and how often you want to send recurring invoices.

There are not many disadvantages considering billing software. You have to pay for your billing program every month that makes extra costs to you. But I think it’s not a disadvantage, because you get more usefulness to your business. Not all billing software provides a feature that you need, that’s why you should explore market and find program that will fully meet your requirements. Actually there are no bad billing programs. You just have to find the right one for yourself!
