Fanurio 2.0 Released - Time Tracking and Billing for Freelancers
"Version 2.0 is an important milestone for Fanurio as it is ready to be used by many more people. It is a full-grown application whose design has proved to be intuitive and reliable for most time tracking and billing problems faced by freelancers." says Nicolae Cismaru, product manager for Fanurio. "It took us thousands of suggestions, almost three years of work and 15 releases to get here."
Fanurio is mainly used by freelancers who prefer a professional solution over pen and paper or spreadsheets to keep accurate records of their time and invoices.
Fanurio provides multiple methods to track time with little effort. Most users appreciate the reminders that help them start, resume or stop the timer. Instead of relying on their memory and attention to control the timer, users can focus on their work and care less about logging time since that's handled by the application.
Fanurio has lots of features for billing contracted work. It can record services and expenses, round time, apply discounts, handle subcontracted work, use multiple currencies, apply taxes, record partial payments and many more.
Fanurio uses a powerful template language that can be used to create great looking invoices. Using a customizable template, invoices may be exported to a HTML or PDF file so they can be printed or e-mailed. Invoice templates can be created manually, using Fanurio's template builder or free of charge by their support staff.
People who work on more than one computer choose Fanurio over other solutions also because it runs on multiple platforms. Fanurio runs on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and other flavors of Unix at no extra cost.
