Showcasing is a responsive web application that helps freelancers manage their projects internally and publish their progress to clients externally. Clients use their own unique accounts to login and view a simplified timeline of each project without needing to contact the freelancer.
Lars Willemse, the CEO of Showcasing, approached Crowdbotics with an outline of his idea and some designs purchased on Fiverr. Working in collaboration with the Crowdbotics team, he was able to fully spec the project, build it, and deploy it within his budget and on his own timeline.
Showcasing is hosted on Crowdbotics's monthly plan, and Lars is currently working with Crowdbotics to add in-app payments and document flows in the coming months.
Frustrated by the large amounts of unbilled time required to call and email his freelance clients, Lars approached Crowdbotics in mid-2019 to build an app that helps freelancers manage their projects internally while automatically publishing their progress to clients externally.
Crowdbotics quickly provided Lars with a project manager and developers and contacted him daily to update him on the progress of his build. “The communication from Crowdbotics was so consistent and comprehensive that nothing could slip through the cracks,” said Lars.
Today, Lars sells a lifetime subscription to Showcasing.io that pays for itself within months thanks to the two-sided data flow that Lars envisioned. Lars continues to host and develop Showcasing with Crowdbotics and soon plans to add features such as in-app invoicing and document management. We recently sat down with Lars to discuss the process of building Showcasing and his vision for a better project management tool.
