Indy’s all-encompassing ecosystem is made up of Indy University, Indy’s tool suite, and the Indy Network, giving freelancers the guidance and tools they need to grow a successful independent business.

Beginning with Indy University, a place where you can learn everything you need to overcome the common pitfalls that cause 50% of freelancers to fail in their first year. Take self-paced courses and browse through hundreds of guides that help you overcome any challenge while freelancing.

Along with these educational resources, Indy’s robust tool suite gives you all the tools you need to manage your business.

✅Forms

Generate new leads, gather feedback, and conduct surveys with beautiful, professionally designed templates that can be customized in minutes.

✅Proposals

Indy’s proposal builder lets you embed anything you need to create engaging, eye-catching proposals that make clients take notice. Add videos, songs, images, social media profiles, and Calendly invites so prospects can book a meeting right from the proposal.

✅Contracts

Our legally vetted contracts keep your business, your time, and your money protected. The contracts wizard makes it easy to plug in your details and generate a personalized contract quickly. You can even add your own contracts into the system.

✅Tasks

Take charge of any assignment a client sends your way with powerful to-do lists and Kanban boards. Break down large projects into smaller tasks, or balance multiple projects at once.

✅Files

Upload, store, and share files with clients to get feedback and approval. With version control, clients can write comments directly on your files. Comments and suggestions are linked to the specific version, making it easy to track progress from one draft to the next.

Track your hours automatically with just a click. Then view the total number of hours worked over the past days, weeks, and months with the time tracking widget, and quickly see which hours have been paid or still need to be billed.

Wrap up with simple yet powerful invoicing. Accept multiple online and offline payment options like PayPal, Stripe, Zelle, Wire Transfer, and Direct Deposit, allowing clients to pay fast and flexibly.

✅Calendar

Get a bird’s-eye view of everything happening each day, week, and month, so that you’ll always have a clue of what’s due or overdue when it comes to tasks, invoices, proposals, and contracts.

Indy is free to use and gives you unlimited access to core tools that seamlessly manage your business admin, projects, and client communication.

Key benefits of Indy

With Indy’s educational courses, robust tool suite, and growing networking, you’ll have everything you need to become a successful freelancer with just one software.

Indy is quickly becoming the home for freelancers who want to save time and money, and keep all of their work organized.

We have one of the most robust free plans on the market. Freelancers have many expenses to deal with, and the tools you use shouldn’t have to be one of them.

With our free plan, you’ll get access to all the professional tools without having to break the bank.

You can manage:

- Proposals: Launch a template to design and send a beautiful proposal to clients faster than the competition.

- Contracts: Start with a legally vetted contract template and add your project information in minutes with the Contracts builder. E-signatures make it simple and fast to get a client’s signature.

- Invoices: Create and customize invoices so you can get paid faster using trusted payment providers such as PayPal, Stripe, and Zelle.

These simple yet powerful tools help streamline your workflow from lead generation to payment, so you never have to worry about juggling multiple software, multiple passwords, and multiple payment plans.

But don’t just take our word for it, read through our reviews here on Capterra. We have a 4.7 rating for ease of use, making our tool suites one of the most intuitive on the market (and free to use!).

If you do want more advanced functionality, like workflow automations and powerful integrations, you can sign up for Indy Pro for just $9/month with an annual plan, but you’ll never have to pay to use our core tools that are included in the Free plan.

With our central hub for all of your work, you can leave behind the stress of having your projects, tasks, and documents spread across multiple platforms.

Keep all of your work organized right in the project dashboard, which acts as your command center for getting things done. Easily access all 9 of Indy’s tools from your project dashboard and manage clients with simple chat messages. No more losing client conversations in a cluttered email inbox!

But having a powerful tool suite isn’t the only thing you need. That’s why we created Indy University, to help you navigate the toughest challenges of being a freelancer—like finding clients, managing taxes, getting paid on time, creating winning proposals, and actionable tips for overcoming the daily stresses of an independent lifestyle.

These challenges are just as critical to solve as having the right tools to manage your business. And it’s one of the areas that sets us apart from other project management platforms. We want to give you the advice that we’ve learned along the way, to help you become successful.

Along with educational courses, you’ll have access to the Indy Community. where you can grow your network by connecting with other Indy members to collaborate and gain client referrals.

My overall experience with Indy has been a positive experience and I look forward to remaining with Indy for as long as possible. They are going to be a great benefit to my business.

Pros

I'm brand new to Indy, but so far I'm loving being on the platform. I like the fact that it is very affordable for business owners that are just starting out. Indy's customer service is beyond awesome and they don't mind answering any question that you may have. They also are great with any feedback that you give. Their invoicing, contract creation/management, etc are great too. It's easy to go into Indy and have a proposal, contract, and invoice set up and ready to go for your client within 30 minutes. What makes that even better is that you can integrate PayPal and Stripe so that you can receive payment right away after your client approves the project. These are some of the pros of using Indy.

Cons

I found no aspect of Indy that was difficult to use. The only thing that I saw that was an easily solvable challenge was setting up the contract for my client. I was having a problem with doing that. I reached out to their customer service team while working on it, and they helped me solve that issue within 5 minutes. I was right back on my way after it was solved. There is nothing that I don't like about this software.

Although Indy does have some bugs to work out, I really like the "all in one" nature of this platform. I like being able to use multiple tools for one low monthly cost.

Pros

I love using it for proposals, contracts, and invoices. I just love how it's an "all in one" resource (e.g., I don't need to use one platform for proposals, another for contracts, etc.).

Cons

The CRM part (or the People section as it's called) does need some work. It doesn't always let me enter the address correctly. The invoicing also needs some work. They really need to change the rate part (as not everything is per hour).

Response from Indy

Thank you for being a valued Indy member Andrew! It's awesome to hear that we provide everything you need to run your business. Thanks for the feedback, it's helpful to know where we can improve. I'll be sure to share the feedback about the address field in People being buggy to the team. When creating an invoice, you can choose to set your items at a unit or hourly rate. It comes in pre-selected as hourly but it's actually a dropdown menu. If neither of those options work, please reach out to customer support so we can get more information on what you'd like to see there.

Ease of use for most part, but wasn't seamless with clients.

Ease of use for most part, but wasn't seamless with clients.

Pros

Affordability and ease of use. I really appreciated the templates. I used mostly for proposals.

Cons

Clients didn't seem to want to communicate via the software and even though I sent them billing options via software, I ended up having to send an invoice via bank software for direct deposit of funds.

Response from Indy

Hey Felicia, thanks for the valuable feedback. We're happy to hear that you had a positive experience with our proposal templates. While it's hard to hear that we missed the mark on providing a seamless experience for your clients, I've shared this feedback with my team so we can find ways to improve this experience. We'd love to talk with you more! If you're interested in helping us build a better Indy, please contact support.
