Create Unlimited Invoices & Quotes for Free (Requires Signup) @ Invoice Owl

So roughly 7 months ago I developed Invoice Owl as an alternative to other online job management systems like SimPRO.
At the time I believed it was still an open market and honestly thought I'd created a platform that was perfect for small business owners.
Fast forward to now and it seems I had largely underestimated the field, especially trying to compete with big companies like xero, or reckon.
While Invoice Owl does lack some of the higher end polish of the bigger named sites, I've been using it myself to operate my own business with complete success.
Now if you're a small business or maybe even a sole trader, I honestly believe what I've created could work for you and I've made the decision to offer the platform at no cost (yes there is still an option to upgrade to a premium account and remove invoice owl branding) but all the same functionality is there for free, no catches.
Lastly I will be completely transparent and open and advise what I see as the negatives to the platform.
a) There isn't a mobile app, so usage on a mobile is clunky, yes the site is using a responsive bootstrap layout but it's still problematic when trying to display large tables of information that don't fit within a small screen.
b) There is no integration options between the Invoice Owl platform and accounting software like Xero, so you will need to mark invoices as paid manually.
c) Lack of training or support. If you're not familiar with this type of platform it can be quite daunting to use, while I'm happy to answer questions and provide basic help, being a free platform now (and due to me having a day job) I cannot promise you'll get in-depth support should you require it.
Once again as stated in my original post from 7 months ago:
OK, I might be interested, what about privacy?
