Manage your business and your team.
For single users, we recommend using Cloud. With Cloud you don’t need to deal with a server application, networking, or backup management.
You do not require an internet connection to use Billings Pro. Information is stored locally on your machine or iOS device. A connection is only required to setup, sync or send out estimates, invoices, and statements.
Billings Pro is currently available in English, French, and German.
Billings Pro Touch was built for use on iPhone and iPod touch, and will run on iPad in either it's original size or expanded using the 2x zoom feature.
Colleagues can track time and enter expenses on a Windows PC using Timecard. Timecard works on Internet Explorer 8.0+, however we recommend using Firefox, Chrome, or Safari for Windows.
There are many differences between the two applications and we’ve highlighted them here with our comparison chart.
Billings 3 can be migrated to Billings Pro Cloud by the user by following these instructions.
Our templates are very customizable. Items such as placement, fonts, colors and images are easily changed within our template editor. The engine is very powerful and flexible (evidence: the best invoices anywhere), and as with anything with such power and flexibility, expertise is required to get the most out of it. Since the engine is shared with Daylite and Billings, there is existing knowledge out there. Concepts can found here (PDF). Template layout and design movies can be found here. You can find partners that have expertise here. You can purchase some canned templates or custom templates here and here.
Currently there is no API for third parties. We do plan to add this in the future. We do have the ability to run FScript scripts (or FScript wrapped within AppleScript), but we have not documented the potential calls and methods.

Data synchronized between Billings Pro and Marketcircle Cloud is encrypted using SSL. All of our servers are behind secure firewalls and are located in a Tier 1 datacenter with multiple physical security measures.
One of the benefits of Billings Pro is that your data is stored locally on your machine or mobile device and you are using native applications so you can continue working without interruption even if your network is unavailable or our servers are unreachable. In the unlikely event of downtime, Timecard and invoice generation will be unavailable. We'll tweet notices out for planned maintenance and we'll post any updates to http://www.marketcircle.com/status/ if our server status changes.
This is not currently possible. The storage mechanisms in the cloud are very different from Self Serve and you are unable to revert back.
Billings Pro can be tried by your entire organization for 30 days. There are no limitations to the trial version, and if you decide to purchase, you'll be able to continue working right from where you left off.
For Self-Serve you'll require an Intel Mac machine running Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or later to host your database. You do not require a "server grade" machine – see system requirements (below) for more details. - Need to worry about networking and backups
For single users, we recommend using Cloud. With Cloud you don’t need to deal with a server application, networking, or backup management. This setup is only recommended for multi-user groups with knowledge of server management or with an IT professional to help them manage their network.
No. Switchboard is a free service for Billings Pro to connect to Billings Pro Server and devices to connect to Touch Server remotely. The primary purpose of Switchboard is to communicate and update the IP address of the server machine to the Billings Pro client machines.
