Do you want to reduce the time it takes to get paid by your clients and ultimately increase your cashflow? Try enhancing your communication channels by combining SMS reminders with your exisiting email reminders in Freshbooks. The beauty about this API, once you have chosen your settings as to when you want SMS reminders to be sent (with all invoice notifications or maybe only on overdue accounts), you do not need to leave Freshbooks! The work is all done behind the scenes in our app.

The other great thing, you can write your own message templates so your communications can be personalised and convey the personality of your business! Alternatively, if you want to save even more time, we have drafted a number of message templates for you.
