Never miss billable work because you forgot to record it. Fill in your mileage details while still in your car (or on your bike). Record expenses before you even leave the table.
Now you can access your FreeAgent or IRIS OpenBooks account on your iPhone or iPod Touch using mobileAgent – the mobile client for FreeAgent and IRIS OpenBooks, the UK’s best online accounting solutions. It also works with the resellers of FreeAgent and OpenBooks, like Maslins Online, and My Business Works.
Get in, log your data, and get on with making money
“App is great and other than when doing my numbers etc rarely log in to FreeAgent doing most of it on the train.” – Martin Chard, Cerdren
- If you are using mobileAgent with My Business Works you will need to do some minor extra setup.
- If you are having any issues with MobileAgent (eg logging in), please see the support page!
With mobileAgent you can:
- Create timeslips Either by adding a new task to a project, or logging time against an existing task. Add comments to your timeslips so you can recall what you did on the day.
- Log mileage Handles all allowed forms of transport (car, motorcycle, bicycle), so you can reclaim and rebill your mileage.
- Enter expenses: Just paid for lunch? No need to remember to do it when you get back to the office – log the expense into FreeAgent at the table.
- View your outstanding, overdue and draft invoices.
- Attach a photo of the expense when you enter it. No more keeping receipts and scanning them “later”.
- Take photos of receipts for later upload. The receipts can be send via email, or stored in Dropbox, so you can get to them easily later.
- All attached images can be uploaded to Dropbox or saved to the phone’s photo library.
- Add and update contact and projects. You can add a new project, or change the phone number of a contact when you find out about it, rather than waiting until you are back at your computer.
- Enter items while you’re offline: Enter things when you remember – even while underground or on a plane. Sync back to FreeAgent next time you’re connected.
- Import contacts from your phone into FreeAgent. Have someone in your address book, and want them in FreeAgent? It’s as easy as a single tap.
