The short version:
Unsatisfied with the existing online invoicing systems in 2012, a frelancer starts his own invoicing software. With the help of a frelance designer friend, he creates Invoicing 123 with the following goals:
- Ease of use
- Fair price
The (not so) longer version:
Freelancer since 2005 in performing arts and as a web developer, Emile uses a common word processing software to create his invoices. Needless to say, they feel a bit wobbly. In 2010, he begins to bill sale taxes and starts his quest to find the right invoicing software. This quest will lead him to two main revelations: invoicing software are often too expensive for a freelancer or they lack simplicity and ease-of-use. Emile starts to work on his own online invoicing software that will become Invoicing 123. In 2012, his friend Mohsen, also in performing arts as well as a freelance graphic designer, brings in his ergonomic vision, making the software even easier to use.
