Time Doctor Versus FreshBooks

Time Doctor and FreshBooks both offer time tracking features, but they are really completely different tools with different purposes.

FreshBooks is focused on invoicing as logging expenses, billing clients and basic accounting.


Time Doctor, on the other hand, is focused on improving productivity within a team or for individuals. It monitors the websites visited and application used and provides detailed reports of the time spent on which tasks.

Time Doctor is also currently working on an integration with FreshBooks!
