If you do any contract work, you’ve probably had the joy of tracking your hours (if you’re still trying to solve that issue, check out my Project Hamster post) and then creating an invoice of some sort for the client. In the past I have tried a couple of solutions such as a creative Excel spreadsheet or creating a new email from scratch each time. I’ve also checked out the online service Blink Sale, but, never really liked the thought of some other company knowing how much I’m billing my clients and making each month. That, and there was the 3 invoices per month limit for the free version.
This is where BambooInvoice steps in. It’s a FOSS solution that you host on your own server. The interface is great, and installation is simple.
