Pandle is simple to use, actively helping you reduce the risk of accounting errors, and has the sort of timesaving bookkeeping tools that you should expect from a software provider these days.

Is it easy to switch from FreshBooks to Pandle?

Absolutely! Pandle has an Opening Balances Assistant which helps you to set up your account and then manage the switch to import all your crucial data easily.

Leaving FreshBooks and moving to Pandle

Our help centre guides go through the process of importing everything into Pandle in more detail, but to get started you’ll need your existing data from FreshBooks. Make sure you download everything before cancelling your account!

The data that you export from FreshBooks can then be used to enter Opening Balances into Pandle. And of course, to save you typing everything out all over again, you can also import your customers, suppliers and invoices into Pandle quickly and easily.

To try out our time-saving features, take Pandle Pro out for a spin. Don’t worry, we won’t ask for your bank details!
