Review: Create custom invoices and keep track of transactions with Totals for Mac

Generate custom invoices and reports that look professional using Totals for Mac.

Totals for Mac lets you easily customize the look and feel of your invoices, generate reports for specified periods, keep track of your inventory, and create databases that can handle multiple clients. It's a great tool if you run a small business.

After a quick and easy installation, Totals for Mac opens to a large and streamlined interface. The application's Menu Bar allows you to add new items such as documents, clients, and suppliers, and features a generous Help file. The main menu gives you quick access to a report generator, fully customizable invoice creator, and an account overview. Clicking the "Overview" button displays general information such as contacts, projects, drafts, and current documents. Adding new clients, together with relevant client-specific information, went smoothly. Importing information from our address book as well as from a CSV was also easily accomplished. With just a click on the Report button, you can quickly create custom reports for a specified time frame. The multiple database support comes in handy, too, since this allows you to use this app for more than one business. We were impressed with the appearance of invoices, which appear professional and elegant.

If you are a freelancer, a small business owner, or perhaps run an e-commerce site, and want to create custom invoices and keep track of all your important transactions in one application, then Totals for Mac might be an ideal solution for your needs. The application is free to try for 30 days, which in our opinion is enough time for you to test all of the options before purchasing.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Totals for Mac 2.2.9.
