Freelancers work under their own identity. Most of the times name being their brand and company. At times they progress to build a brand name, a studio, an agency, a small company, etc.
Some freelancers operate under many brands at the same time. Providing various services under different umbrella. Each of them being a different cost centre.
You can manage projects under your name as a one man operation, or as a company with team members.
For a successful business, you need to have good communication with your clients. You establish communication based on service, satisfaction, loyalty, reliability, quality and support. All these attributes acts as a foundation.
To have a good relationship with the client you should have streamlined processes. Which results in increased business and profitability.
Cazny provides features for you to establish good communication and relationship with clients.
To achieve a set of goals and deliver value to a client, you need the right tool set. Managing scope, time, budget and deliveries are paramount to a success of a project.
Plan, execution, monitoring, control and decision making are key in a project execution. You need right data at the right moment for these to happen. Cazny has good project management features that will aid you to successful delivery.
Tasks are the foundation stones of a project. Creation, assignment, prioritisation, scheduling, and collaboration are key to a successful task management.
A task travels through various stages from start to finish. Tracking them through their life-style as an organised workflow is important.
Freelancers and timesheets are inseparable. Most of the times, improper timesheet records results in loss of revenue.
Cazny provides the best timesheet recording functionality. You can map the timesheet to project, client and eventually payments.
