: Plendi and FreeAgent partner to save freelancers and small businesses time, money and tax

Apr 13, 2011 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Plendi, a Dublin-based mobile expense management company and FreeAgent, the award winning online accounting system for small businesses and freelancers, today announced a partnership.

"Everybody hates tracking and managing expenses. I talk to freelancers and small business owners every week who are overwhelmed with paperwork and losing money because of it. Together, Plendi and FreeAgent make it easy to track every expense and claim every VAT amount, no matter how small, so our customers can get out from under a mountain of paper and get back to building their businesses," said Fergal Murray, CEO of Plendi.

Plendi takes the pain out of tracking out-of-pocket expenses. Customers take a picture of their receipts using Plendis iPhone or Android app. Each receipt is transcribed by Plendis data entry staff, and the image and transaction data are permanently stored in an online receipt manager.

The partnership with FreeAgent means that the transaction data, including the date, vendor, net, VAT, and total, along with an image of the receipt are automagically recorded in the customers FreeAgent account. If the receipt is in a foreign currency, it is converted and recorded in the customers own currency in FreeAgent.

"As of today you can send your receipts to Plendi and see them appear automatically in FreeAgent. Theres no tedious data entry, and the receipt is stored securely as soon as you take the picture. You can still claim expenses from a client or deduct them from your tax bill even if you lose the paper receipt. Because Plendi works globally and converts currencies its a great expense tracking solution for our customers in the UK and all around the world." said Ed Molyneux, CEO of FreeAgent.

Florian Dargle, Investment Director of Silver Reel Partners and customer of both Plendi and FreeAgent said "FreeAgent makes accounting simple, and Plendi has been a godsend for getting a handle on my expenses. This integration boosts my productivity even further - its a bit of latterday magic, I think." Plendis basic service costs 39.95 per year and comes with a 30-day free trial. Plendi mobile apps are available for iPhone and Android. A BlackBerry app will be released soon. Find out more about the new integration at
