Indy is the best replacement I've ever found so far.

Reviewed on 2022-03-15

Pros

I am living in a country where the dollar conversion is really huge. I used HelloBonsai before but I cannot keep up with its pricing. When I found Indy, I can say that this is the most affordable CRM I found. Also, it has the robust features that I love the most and looked for a CRM - creating proposals and contracts, adding contact, creating projects, time tracking, task tracking and file management. They also have a chat feature which I never used but can be an edge to any other CRM out there. For a freelancer/one-person agency, Indy saved my time from client management and organized everything for me.

Cons

I can see that Indy is fairly new in the market. There are things that needs to be improved on such as currency localization. Right now, they only accept USD as currency for invoices. I hope they can globalize in the future. Also, I want to point out about automation. I hope we can add few more automations in the system.

Response from Indy

Hi there! We're happy to hear that you were able to find a tool that meant your business needs at an affordable price. That's our main mission here at Indy you need a tool that works as hard as you do without breaking the bank. Thanks for the feedback. Global currencies are on our radar and we're hoping for a release very soon. We're also looking at ways to improve our product and automation is an area we'd like to explore. If there are specific automations you'd like to see here, please let us know!!

Overall, I have not had issues with Indy and will continue to use it. I find it extremely helpful for me as a small business owner to find an all in one experience for my business needs without breaking the bank.

Pros

I love how easy it is to create contracts and invoices on the fly. The customer service is pretty responsive in terms of timeliness and active listening.

Cons

I would like to see the ability to link contracts and invoices together for the same client so they can have all of the information at once.
I also would like to see the ability for automatic payments for remaining balances after deposits are paid.

Alternatives Considered

HoneyBook, PayPal and Wave Accounting

Reasons for Choosing Indy

Wave was similar but lacked contracts at the time. Honeybook was a little too robust for me. The learning curve was huge. I wish Indy would improve their features to compete with these platforms while retaining that low annual price. These other platforms are very expensive and that was another reason I switched.

Response from Indy

Hi Evan, we're happy to hear that Indy has helped streamline contract and invoice creation for your business. Also, thanks for the valuable feedback! We're always looking for ways to improve the ability to bundle documents (sending contracts with invoices attached) (bundled documents) and auto-payments are considerations.

Cons

Love them

Reviewed on 2022-07-21

Pros

I have been using Indy for a short period of time but in that time, I have accomplished a lot in my business. Indy has helped me stay on top of my tasks and get organized when I am feeling overwhelmed by my number of clients. I appreciate that things can be archived but very rarely can you completely delete something. I love the time tracking feature, it has prevented me from using multiple different software. Everything I need for my virtual assistance business is in one place

Cons

Contracts should be a little more detailed in things we can edit. While many important things are provided in templates, there have been times where I have had to copy and paste my contracts into a word document so that I can add or redact certain things. This can be a bit of a grueling task.

I also wish the app had more capabilities.

Alternatives Considered

Dubsado and Adobe Acrobat DC

Reasons for Switching to Indy

I chose Indy because it gives me everything I need without any confusion. Other programs were either missing aspects necessary for my business or they were not as functional as I needed them to be.

Response from Indy

Hi Bruklin, it's truly amazing to hear how Indy helped streamline and organize your business operations. We really appreciate the feedback and love! You actually can edit our contract templates to remove or add text and clauses. The step-by-step wizard helps you fill out the basic contract information. On the last step (either step 3 or 8 depending on which contract you're using), there is a button that will let you fully customize the contract. It is a bit hidden in the process so we'll be sure to find ways to improve that. We'd love to hear more about the capabilities you'd like to see on Indy please don't hesitate to reach out to our support team to review further.

A good starting place for new freelancers

Reviewed on 2022-07-20

Overall the experience has been good, and I look forward to more improved features.

Overall the experience has been good, and I look forward to more improved features.

Pros

Easy to use, responsive customer service. The cost is very reasonable, and the team is regularly making improvements to the platform.

Cons

The time tracking features are not intuitive or robust. I use an external tool to track time. I would like to be able to export timesheets, the ability to see reports for projects and clients, an automatic calculation of hours on a daily weekly and monthly basis, as well as calculating a total amount for the invoice instead of being individual line items.

I would like to be able to modify the built in contract templates beyond just the essential info.

Alternatives Considered

Dubsado

Reasons for Choosing Indy

Bonsai's payment terms were very confusing, and I appreciate that Indy connects directly to the processors. I felt like the customer service was a little rude, and I don't do a super high volume of contracts or invoices, so I switched to save money.

Reasons for Switching to Indy

More features than I needed, higher price point.

Response from Indy

Hi Aquarius, it's great to hear that you're loving Indy's ease-of-use and dedicated support team we're always here and happy to help if anything arises. We're also working hard to release new features to help improve your workflow and we have some exciting things planned. Thanks for the feedback on Time Tracker.
