Alternatives to using invoice template PDF

The PDF invoice template is easy to use and decent looking, however it’s not very flexible. Most people either use  Excel, Word or an invoice generator. Let’s take a look at the different options and compare them so each other.

Microsoft designed Excel for working and representing large tables of data. It supports simple to complex formulas and is very flexible. However it’s not known for being pretty. One of the reasons that it’s usually used internally within a company.

Invoices however are documents that you send out to your clients. A representation of you and your company. You should always expect your invoices to look amazing!

Some recommend using Word instead, because of it’s built in templates and layout management. Word makes it quite easy to create a professional invoice.

However Word falls short in terms or practicality and usability.  It’s very hard to add in a table of line items, calculate totals or taxes.

The best option is to use tools and software designed for making invoices. You can use these tools to gain the best of both worlds! Great convenience as well as amazing style.

That’s where we come in. We’ve built our online invoice generator to be a great alternative to PDF, Word and Excel. Here are some of the added benefits of using Invoice Simple:

  • Professional layout
  • Fully customizable
  • Clients and items saved automatically
  • Simple book keeping for tax season
  • Online and in person credit card processing

If you’re invoicing more than once or twice a month it makes a lot of sense to switch to an invoicing software.
