Streamlining my invoicing means I can focus more on my customers and less on my billing process. There’s no better form of advertisement for a small business than a happy customer.

Mike has been providing plumbing, heating, and gas piping services to homeowners around Maryland for over three years. His business relies on word of mouth recommendations so he prides himself on providing a high quality and personal service. That includes his invoicing.
“I try to bill and and collect payments from customers when I leave the job so that it’s simple for everyone,” explains Mike. “Streamlining my invoicing as much as possible also means I can focus more on my customers and less on my billing process. There’s no better form of advertisement for a small business than a happy customer.”
When QuickBooks became too expensive and time-consuming for his invoicing needs, Mike went looking for an alternative. “Using QuickBooks was eating up a lot of my time and I was finding it hard to invoice my customers right there and then. Quite frankly, it was too complicated. It could take me as much as two hours a day to get my invoicing done which meant I wasn’t focused on the core aspects of my business. So I did some research, found a few other apps that piqued my interest, and went from there.”
Mike needed a mobile app that would not only allow him to quickly create invoices onsite, but could also handle more complex proposals and invoices for bigger projects. Simplicity and efficiency were key. When Mike found Invoice Simple, he knew he’d found the perfect fit.
“I tried Invoice Simple and fell in love with the simplicity of it. The app is so easy to use, I’ve never looked back. It used to take me two hours to do my billing when I got home at the end of the day. Now it takes me five minutes and I can do the billing right there with my customer.”
As well as speeding up Mike’s invoicing process, Invoice Simple is also helping him to keep his customer information organized, and get his taxes done.
“It’s super simple. All I have to do is type in my client’s name and every invoice they’ve ever had pops right up. I can take my monthly statements and just forward them right to my accountant too so I don’t need to use any other accounting software.”
With an apprentice in training, and business booming, Mike is busier than ever. Now that he’s saving hours every week on his invoicing, he can focus on delivering a top quality service to his clients.
“Invoice Simple has streamlined my business 100%. I love that I can focus on my business and not on admin. Anytime I can bend somebody’s ear about Invoice Simple, I do. They typically take me up on it and thank me later.”

Great app. Does exactly what it says on the tin. I’m a decorator and being able to run a quick quote on the spot is brilliant. Does all the adding of VAT and discounts for you.
