Billings 2 released
Marketcircle today released Billings 2, enabling users to create customized invoices, project estimates, and detailed reports "within five minutes." Billings 2 features include a built-in setup assistant, an intuitive user interface, fully-customizable templates, and a menu bar timer to control the software without interrupting current tasks. The update offers an entirely customizable sales tax/VAT system with more than 120 global presets, and boasts easy data export to share Billings 2 data with other accounting or bookkeeping software. Users can manage unpaid invoices as well as tax reports, and the application includes automatic invoice numbering alongside a retainer handling system. The latest revision also provides an idle timer, automatic deduction/display of down-payments on outgoing invoices, reports for projecting estimates versus actual time/cost, and additional envelope styles. Billings 2 is available for $60 and requires Mac OS X (specific system requirements were unavailable).
