Thank you for your time and interest to learn more about us and what we’ve been working on in the past months. Truly, building a product is one great experience. There are a lot of challenges and assumptions, but here we are, writing the media kit, getting the last bits ready for the official launch.

Hopefully, this media kit will provide you with some insight of the team and our product — Envoice.

We‘d love to hear your thoughts.

Yet another Invoicing app? — You may ask…

Image 2: Envoice — landing page

Today we see a lot of teams trying to crack the next thing, to become the next unicorns, thus a lot of energy is consumed into inventing the future rather than fixing what is already there. — the result: annoyed end users.

As a company, we believe into creating a digital version of the physical processes. To achieve this, we are trying to learn about our potential users; to understand how they are solving a specific task starting from “pen and paper” up to using an app. All this to avoid users being annoyed and to enjoy using our products.

Envoice is a result of solving our own frustration with sending Word/PDF invoices to our clients. Before Envoice was born, we’ve had three processes:

  • Sending an invoice to an existing client;
  • Sending an invoice to a new client;
  • Maintain the invoice list and stats in an Excel file;

The problems we’ve encountered

What we did here was copying the previous invoice, changing the invoice number, issue date, due date, invoice items and total amount. Before we send the invoice to the client, we were checking if nothing is missed and if the information is correct.

We’ve noticed a trend that we’ve always ended up in making a mistake before sending the invoice to the client. Sometimes we’ve forgot to change the invoice number, sometimes it was the issue date, the due date or the line items.

The excel file was a story in itself. Different currencies, clients and invoice statuses. It was a challenge to create any type of report.

Going in the field

If we’ve had this problem, there have to be other teams and individuals as well. Sasho Mihajlov did a great job outside of our HQ, with interviewing individuals and small companies. The interviews were fruitful.

There were two groups of people who have had the same challenges in a different format:

  • Freelancers and small companies who were using the same approach as ours;
  • Freelancers and small companies who were using an app but were annoyed by the overall experience and long learning curve;

To sum it up, we’ve got a feeling that the existing solutions in the wild, have spent more energy in the app development and choosing a technology stack rather than focusing on the overall experience and how sending invoices happens in the real life.

Envoice — the making of

We’ve identified and confirmed the need and wanted to respond in a proper manner. A lot of discussions had happened in and out the office until we’ve set our goals:

  • We wanted our customers to be able to set their Envoice account without hassle;
  • We wanted our customers to be able to send an invoice in less than a minute;
  • We wanted our customers to be able to able to get paid instantly on their PayPal, Payoneer and Stripe account;

We’ve created a mockup(image bellow — first part) to start with and iterated until we’ve collected enough information that the app is easy to use(image bellow — second part).

We didn’t stop there. We’ve dedicated ourselves on adding those small details that no-one will talk about, but if we remove them, customers would not know how they’ve lived without them. Small things like client prediction, invoice number prediction, payment notifications.

Currently, there are a lot of activities happening on our side. In the next months we will continue to deliver items from our road-map for Envoice.
Stay healthy and happy!
