Giving a little love to Dubsado

by | Product Spotlight

For those of you that work with us, you may have noticed our invoices and other project workflows have gotten SUPER organized over the last year. We couldn’t have done this without our buds at Dubsado and just needed to show a little love!

Shanty Town has been operating since 2013, and from the beginning, we’ve struggled with finding the best platform that fits all of our internal and external needs in one place. We needed to find something that eliminated the manual aspect of billing, scheduling calls, project tasks and to-do lists, and PDF contracts.  We’re happy to say that after testing for a year, we’ve found our dream system!

We love Dubsado so much that we recommend them non stop and have no plans of letting up. We’re not the kind of company that keeps secrets. When we find something great that can help our clients and fellow entrepreneurs, we let them know. After just a few months of switching from Harvest (the platform we used for over 4 years) to Dubsado, we started getting questions from clients asking about what we use. That’s when we knew we struck gold!

The best part? Their customer service. This company is small enough that their team is pretty much ALWAYS around to answer questions. They even went as far as to completely redo a full set of recurring invoices after an error made by us. That’s the real deal.

Some things Dubsado is capable of that we use in our day to day:

  • project and client management
  • automatic invoice reminders
  • automatic payment dates
  • scheduling (this is new and THIS IS HUGE)
  • full calendar of tasks assigned to projects
  • calendar syncing
  • bookkeeping and categorized expenses that can be assigned to projects
  • contracts with notifications of viewing and signing
  • project start and ends dates
  • lead capture forms to eliminate incorrect client details during input
  • trend and sales reports

If you’re a freelancer, planner, photographer, or any other service-based business, you’ve GOT to check these guys out. We promise you won’t regret it.

They’re even #1 on our business solutions resource list.
