UK, August 17, 2012, 10:37 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- FreeAgent has dramatically overhauled its award-winning online accounting system in order to make it easier than ever for small businesses and freelancers to stay on top of their finances.
As part of an extensive development project, FreeAgent has revamped and upgraded key
areas of its cloud accounting software, ensuring it is
more intuitive to use for tens of thousands of customers across the UK and overseas.
The redesign was released to beta testers earlier this year, before being rolled out to all FreeAgent customers in June.
Among the key changes are:
- A completely re-imagined Overview page including a new cash flow reporting panel
- The ability to see account balance charts totalled over all bank accounts
- A new contact summary screen with useful data around client/supplier performance
- New charts that have been optimised to work on iPhones and iPads
Roan Lavery, Product Designer and co-founder of FreeAgent, said: "Our redesign has been a real labour of love. We've spent the past year refining and upgrading the system so that it provides our customers with the best possible solution for managing their accounts - and we're delighted with the results.
"Our customers regularly give us great feedback, and we listened carefully to many of the specific upgrades and new feature requests they wanted to see in FreeAgent. We've used a lot of these suggestions during our redesign and, judging by the overwhelmingly positive reaction we've had so far, it’s clear that our customers are very happy with the changes that we've made.
"We're committed to ensuring FreeAgent is the most intuitive and useful online accounting system on the market for small businesses and freelancers. We believe this redesign will provide all of our customers with the best possible way to manage their business finances."
Edinburgh-based independent FreeAgent has pioneered online accounting since the launch of its service in 2007. It has rapidly grown a loyal community of freelancers and small businesses, who pay either monthly or annually for access to its software offering many easy to use features.
In a survey, 99.5% of FreeAgent users said they would recommend the software to
others, and the service won the prize for Best Newcomer at the 2009 SIFT Media
Software Satisfaction Awards. In 2010 it won the SIFT SME Accounting and Finance
Software Satisfaction Award, beating all of its desktop and web-based competitors to
take the title. The company also offers a free accountancy software trial to those
who may be interested in the company's products. More information can be found at www.freeagent.com.
