With its comprehensive interface and functions, Express Invoice Free for Mac would be an asset to any small business owner. Its ability to create reports in addition to invoices gives it an extra level of help to users.
Express Invoice Free for Mac installs as part of a set of programs for businesses that the user can also add by checking boxes during setup. Once the main program begins, it walks the user through an initial setup where the user's business information, including name, address, and phone number, can be added. This allows the program to automatically fill in this information in all created invoices, speeding up the process. The main menu includes good graphics labeling all the major functions well. The top row includes several buttons for creating invoices, reports, and accessing the preferences, among others. A sidebar on the left also contains most other features, but allows them to be hidden or revealed by clicking a triangle situated next to each. The main screen initially contains shortcuts that are nearly identical to those along the top row. Clicking them brings up a separate menu, such as the one for creating invoices. This screen allows the user to type in details on the client, item purchased, and salesperson information. Similar secondary screens for the payment allow information entry to attribute payments received to existing invoices and clients. The reports area can return outstanding payments sorted by categories, including client, date, and salesperson.
Express Invoice Free for Mac contains all of the functions necessary for creating and tracking client accounts, payments, and invoices in a well-designed and organized interface, making it a good solution for small business owners.
