1) if you don't know what it costs, you don't know how much to charge
2) If you don't send a bill, you don't get paid.
Creatives and freelancers are notorious for losing track of time, and for letting jobs slip through the cracks, that never get billed for. To be profitable, you need to stay on top of your "product" (your time) and make sure you get properly compensated. IF you use a Mac for creative design, or even freelance business, then you might want to take a serious look at iBiz time-tracking, billing and project management software
"iBiz 4 is designed to help free-lancers and small business owners stay on top of their billing," says Ian Gillespie, President of IGG. "More self-employed people than ever are using Macs, and more of them are seeing that an essential tool like iBiz delivers returns far above what it costs - in both income and efficiency."
* pop-up calender The most important new feature of iBiz 4.1 is the inclusion of a pop-up calender for events, projects and to-dos. This enhances the accessibility of the interface, speeds entry of calendar-based items, and allows users to take better advantage of the app's iCal sync engine.
* Quick Start Guide PDF Additionally, for new users, IGG has added an iBiz 4 Quick Start Guide PDF to the iBiz downloads page of its website.
All enhancements in iBiz 4.1 are applicable to iBiz Professional, IGG's multi-user client/server edition of the software. The iBiz Pro package offers Mac-based professional offices the only networkable solution of its kind. iBiz 4, available as a free trial download, is also compatible with IGG's iBank 3, the leading Mac-only personal finance management app; iBank Mobile, a fully syncable version for the iPhone and iPod touch, is available from the Apple App Store.
* The update also offers two dozen additional bug fixes and enhancements throughout the app, including changes to editing notes attached to invoices; printing; default templates; client statements; and improvements addressing other known issues.
