DealBITS Drawing: Win a Copy of ProfitTrain

by Adam C. Engst

Several years ago, we ran a DealBITS drawing for a then-new time-tracking and invoicing program for freelancers and small businesses called Billable from indie software house Clickable Bliss (see "DealBITS Drawing: Billable [1]," 29 January 2007). Clickable Bliss's Mike Zornek has been hard at work on the program in the intervening years, and along with adding oodles of features to the 2.0 version, he has renamed the program ProfitTrain [2]. It now supports multiple businesses, lets you create invoices based either on completed tasks or line items that you enter manually, stores recurring services and products to add to invoices, allows bidding via an "estimate" invoice status, tracks expenses to be included in invoices, provides for full or partial payment, includes built-in reports, and much more. ProfitTrain is definitely worth a look for any Mac user who runs a client-based business.

This week we're giving away four copies of ProfitTrain 2.0, each worth $49.95, so if you need a better way to track your hours and invoice your clients, be sure to enter at the DealBITS page [3]. All information gathered is covered by our comprehensive privacy policy [4]. Remember too, that if someone you refer to this drawing wins, you'll receive the same prize as a reward for spreading the word.
