When we talk about the administrative tasks of freelancers, especially for micro-entrepreneurs, people tend to think that it is easier, that there is less work to do. However, the reality is quite different. Indeed, these administrative tasks remain a constraint or even a rather complicated duty to do whether or not you are a freelancer, a micro-entrepreneur or not. Having himself experienced the difficulties related to these administrative « duties » of freelancers, Antoine Legendre launched Freebe in 2018, an invoicing software that he presented as « the solution to these various constraints ». Zoom on the features and benefits of this software.
The features of the Freebe software

An invoice in due form
As a freelance micro-entrepreneur, the invoicing issue is the most recurrent and « complicated ». Whether you are an entrepreneur or a micro-entrepreneur, the preparation of your invoice should not be done lightly, it will not be enough for you to take an invoice booklet, fill it in and give it to your customer. No, an invoice must be properly prepared and include mandatory information such as the identity of your company (do not forget to mention your full identity number), discounts, rebates, rebates, VAT information, etc. If you are not yet familiar with these tasks or if doing them repeatedly is difficult for you, consider having them done by software. Freebe can help you to prepare your invoice correctly and quickly.
Have a real-time banking situation
But Freebe is more than just issuing your invoices. This software helps you better manage your banking situation in terms of synchronizing your accounts.

To ensure you know your cash flow situation at all times then, Freebe will synchronize your bank accounts in real time through a certified banking partner.

Is this function safe ? The answer is yes, Freebe undertakes never to disclose the information you entrust to us, whether it is information about your customers or your accounts. And in addition, your virtual assistant does not have access to your bank details.
Facilitates the filling in of customer data
As we have already mentioned, Freebe aims to facilitate the management and implementation of your various professional activities. It is also a way for you to manage your customers differently. Take for example the management of your customers. If before, filling in information about a customer in Excel or other online spreadsheets was part of your daily routine, you can be sure that with Freebe, this step becomes easier. All you have to do is enter the name and email address of this client and your virtual assistant will complete the rest of the legal information about him/her.
