Online invoicing anyone? Boring Billing Just Got Better!

New on +Social Media Today 's Smart Data Collective

The bottom-line similarities between moving IT operations to the cloud and shifting online invoicing to the cloud are many. Then there are a few esoteric issues that online invoicing solutions help solve, like curing boredom, relieving stress, and reducing errors.

Contenders in the space include Due.com +Murray Newlands +Sage One +Invoicera +FreshBooks +Apptivo +FreeAgent +Zoho and others.
Moving internal billing to online invoicing is a smart business decision. The bottom-line similarities between moving IT operations to the cloud and shifting invoicing to the cloud are many. Then there are a few esoteric reasons, like curing boredom, relieving stress, and reducing errors. Advanced features in online invoicing solutions are making the benefits hard to ignore.

Google Circle Sharing Feature Given The AX!
 
Used it sparingly but have had some excellent circles shared with me. (Thanks +David Leonhardt and +Michael Q Todd ) That was the correct way to use it; too bad the feature was (reportedly) abused.

Oh well ... Google sunsets more than it sunrises. What's next?

Appreciate the #headsup  from +Eren Mckay and +Lee Jarratt. #googleplus

The Circle-Jerks have killed them with their childish rules:

1. Make sure you have added me!
2. +1 this post
3. Publicly share this circle to public, your circles and extended circles. DO NOT DELETE THIS SHARE OR YOU WILL BE EXCLUDED FROM NEXT WEEK'S #XXX OR POSSIBLY BLACKLISTED FROM #XXX FOR GOOD

I believe that CircleShares have been on death row for a while; back when the ability to search the circle was removed.  Google seems to be in self destruct mode -- like "collections" will unseat Pintrest.

Writing for +Forbes security specialist +Joseph Steinberg covers a couple of points we don't usually see given enough attention when it comes to securing information, especially mitigating the risks of "human issues," and reducing egress points inherent in mobile device use with byod.

Smaller organizations aren't taking this serious enough yet.

“Which firewall should I use?” is a question that I am frequently asked when I meet businesspeople at conferences and networking events. While it may sound innocuous, this inquiry is, in fact, indicative of a disturbing trend found among both businesspeople and consumers vis-à-vis the security of their valuable and private information: investing [...]

Left this comment over on David's original share ....

Being relegated to the dog house just got one-upped! LOL

I always liked the ring of "what's in your wallet" ... Now we get to say, "where have you been lately?" to the same tune!

Thanks for the chuckle, David! +David Leonhardt

BREAKING!  Cure for writer's block discovered in a toilet.

Scientists at Outhouse Labs have discovered that the cure for writer's block might not require any new devices or medical procedures, after all.  Early results indicate that combining a standard "throne" with a carefully selected assortment of glossy magazines can result in a reduced incidence of writer's block of up to 87.3%.

Off the subject, +Vernessa Taylor, but please look for an email from me. Thanks! :)
We don't cross paths online nearly enough anymore and that's a shame. I rarely bump into Keith, either. I miss the good old days! Wish we could bring them back again.

Have you ever heard truer words:

"Cost is an illusion. Everything costs too much if it has too little value, and everything is a bargain if it is highly valuable."

Where's your tip jar? :)
I’m sure you’ve heard it before. “I would love to hire your company to get this done for us, but you cost too much.” Cost is an illusion. Everything costs too much if it has too little value,…
