Running an agency can be a tough job. But thanks to the emergence of new solutions in the FreeAgent eco-system, it just got that little bit easier.

We’ve done the legwork to bring you the definitive list of the best FreeAgent integrations that can save you time and help to run your business, with minimal stress.
GoCardless – Payments
One of the biggest hurdles that businesses have to overcome is getting paid on time. And taking a long time to get paid can create friction between yourself and the businesses you serve.
GoCardless is an online payment solution that offers an easy-to-use system to solve your payment problems. It can take recurring, one-off, variable or fixed-fee amounts.
Free to set-up, and with no fixed term of use, GoCardless take only 1% of the fee amount – and even cap that at £2.
GoCardless automatically takes direct debits on the due date of your customers’ invoices. Thanks to this seamless payment system you’ll no longer have to waste time chasing late-payers.
Capsule – CRM
Excellent customer relationship management is the bread and butter of any good agency. But keeping on top of multiple relationships can be taxing.
Capsule makes keeping track of everyone you do business with, the status of projects, as well as opportunities in the pipeline, easy. Storing your data and managing it all in one place makes Capsule an easy pill to swallow.
Capsule’s integration with FreeAgent automatically keeps your customer records up to date so you only need to change them in one place. Capsule gives you a bird’s-eye view of everything you need to know about the companies and people you do business with.
Float – Cash Flow Forecasting
Agency cash flow tends to fluctuate due to the ‘feast and famine’ nature of project-based work. As a result, it’s important that agencies have a strong handle on their cash to ensure there’s enough money to take on new projects, schedule work, and identify the best time to chase payment. Float is the solution you’re looking for, and thanks to the intuitive and visual interface, you’ll never go back to spreadsheets.
Float automatically syncs with FreeAgent every 24 hours, pulling through bills, invoices and actuals to populate your cash flow forecast. With a built-in scenario planning tool, Float helps agencies to easily predict the impact of different decisions on their cash flow.
Helping you to ride the waves of your cash flow, Float is the boat that carries you to the sunny shores of business success.
