You’re safe with us

You get what you pay for. And we can prove it.

On hourly contracts, we count keystrokes and take random screenshots of your freelancer’s screen so you can see they’re putting in the time.

On fixed price contracts, you agree on milestones and only pay up when those milestones are hit.

All in one place

Once you sign in you’ll get your own online space to manage your project.

Use it to securely send and receive files, give real-time feedback and make payments. And if you’re out and about a lot, you’ll want to download the app too.
