Fresh books continues to amaze me with their excelent customer service

My Freshbooks experience has been nothing but good. Just during the month of July, they had helped me with making some changes to my account because one of my clients was changing the way billing was done. I had seen on their recent updates through the community support release notes page about the fact we could have multiple contacts and now have the capability of having them receive the statements, the invoices, or to look at the projects or any other aspect of Freshbooks they wanted. When I initially did this, I used a forwarder to go to everyone because they did not have this capability.

On the 4th of July, I decided it was time to call. Had some questions about making this change, and wanted to know what was true or wasn’t true. Since I can’t find the exact date of when this change went through, I thought it was within the past year. Anyway, they said that this was something that was possible, and explained what to do. One note I should mention the phone number fields are not consistant, and they already have some internal tickets in regards to this to have that fixed. The phone number section you may need is near the bottom of the page for the business.

On the 10th of July, I went in to my account, and made the changes which it noticed I changed the default, so it automatically updated my profile associated with the client. It did not update the profile to check the others, but that it didn’t know to do. I also noticed that it went and kept the associated username of the first person in there, which was quite interesting as I never saw it before. The client never had an associated username and password, so by default, Fresh Books assigns one based off the name of the Client (E.G Jane Smith) and not the company. They confirmed to me on the 12th these pieces of information, and said it looked like everything was looking good.

Every time I call Freshbooks, they are courteous, kind, they’ll take as much time as you need, and they are willing to continue to help the blind and disabled community where they can. This company is open from 9 AM to 6 PM Monday through Friday excluding certain holidays.

Web visum, where did it go?

So I have some time, and I was checking out Web Visum to see if it had come back. I don’t think I reported on this, but it went down some time ago, and I had disabled my addon for firefox. Nobody knew why, but there was talk via twitter between many people and I saw some of it through my twitter feed through mentions of conversation, and retweets. I just went to the web site today, and it is up and operating. Even my account I had set up waslogged in to. This is great news, and I’m curious to find out whatever happened. I’m not out to get them for allowing the domain to lapse if that is what happened, because I don’t know. What I do know, is that many people are going to b happy now. I think one of my followers even had a temporary fix if people wanted it, but I just decided to wait and see what happened. E-mail me at tech at menvi.org and let me know anything if you wish, or registor and comment here if you want too. Glad to see them back up and running. Its a great service.
