Alternatives to using Word invoice template

Microsoft Word is designed for general documents such as letters and reports. You can usually make quite good looking documents in Word. However it can be quite a pain to add line items, totals and calculate taxes.

Some recommend using Excel instead, because of it’s automatic formulas. Excel makes it quite easy to add up your totals and measure taxes. You can set up a table with items and quantities with little effort.

However Excel falls short on the visuals.  It’s very hard to make the invoice look professional, even when using professionally designed invoice templates.

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 Word and Excel. Here are some of the added benefits of using Invoice Simple:

  • Professional layout
  • Fully customizable
  • Clients and items are automatically saved for future use
  • Simple book keeping for tax season

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