FreshBooks launches Automatic Expense Import, connecting customer accounts directly to their bank

FreshBooks gives small business owners a simple, automated way to manage expenses and understand the health of their business

 
PRLog - Jan. 9, 2013 - FreshBooks <www.freshbooks.com>, the #1 cloud accounting specialist for small business owners, today rolled out Automatic Expense Import which automatically draws expenses in from bank accounts and gives users an easy way to track spending and to see their profit and loss at a glance.

This latest addition to the FreshBooks cloud accounting suite of simple, timesaving  capabilities, allows small business owners to connect their financial institutions (including bank accounts and credit cards) directly to FreshBooks and have their expenses imported automatically into their account every day.

“Small business owners want to focus on serving their customers and on doing what they love, not on accounting,” said Mike McDerment, FreshBooks co-founder and CEO. "The ability to automatically import expenses from your bank enables small business owners to effortlessly manage their expenses, which helps them know exactly how much they’re spending and frees up times to work on more important things than paperwork. This is the promise of the cloud – a better way to work.”

Automatic Expense Import includes:
- Quick one-time setup to connect financial institutions to your FreshBooks account
- Automatically brings in new expenses daily, on an ongoing basis until disconnected
- Accommodates multiple accounts including checking, credit card and PayPal
- Imports the last 30-90 days of expenses data (depending on the bank)
- Flags duplications and makes editing painless
