Owning a consultant business comes with a lot of challenges, already. Managing to invoice and adapting 10 other software to manage each activity, does nothing but simply adds to the task.

As a consultant, you need a dedicated consultant billing software that can automate and track your due payments, even when you’re away. For a consultant, precise time tracking is crucial for your business because non-compliance can lead to incorrect invoices and distrust. Moreover, a consultant needs to actively manage each of its business aspect just like any other businessman like client management, task management, time tracking, inventory management, time to invoice conversion, and more.

To make business management easy and fit all the 10 different sectors of software in one account, we created a completely customized self-hosted solution for our client in the consultancy business.

Our client is in the force management and consultancy sector of business, helping further businesses with the workforce.

In order to efficiently manage the business, clients, workforce, and invoicing, here we were provided with key requirements:

  1. Invoicing clients based on a number of workforce provided.
  2. Time Tracking to easily calculate overtime.
  3. Create a drop down for overtime charges in the invoice template.
  4. A separate section for creating an employee profile.
  5. Invoice template customization as per software customization.
  6. Generating the reports for calculating the profits and losses.

Keeping in mind all the requirements shared with us, our team quickly created a plan to customize an entire software for our client. Here is how invoicing for consultant business took shape for this project:
