Recurvoice is an invoicing tool all freelancers should know about

Invoicing as a freelancer or small business can be painful, but Recruvoice sends in their kick ass robots to make it a whole lot easier.

Invoicing and getting paid can be annoying

Freelancers have it pretty good. You may not always know exactly when or from where the next job (and paycheck) is coming, but you schedule our own hours, work from your own homes, and very rarely have to change out of your pajamas; there’s just something invigorating about being able to have that much agency over the course of the day.

2017 UPDATE: Recurvoice’s website no longer works, the company appears to be dormant.

That being said, there are certain drawbacks that come from managing your own affairs—specifically, being in charge of the payroll. Writing up invoices can be time-consuming, frustrating, and, if you aren’t organized, downright painful (as a matter of fact, I seem to recall the Geneva Conventions prohibiting that kind of thing). Luckily for us, there’s a brand-new tool that organizes and ships invoices all by itself.

Introducing Recurvoice

Recurvoice – an amalgam of “recurring” and “invoice,” presumably – does most of the legwork on your constant invoices. Rather than having to send a weekly, biweekly, or monthly invoice to your client, Recurvoice sets up a template for you. The draft is based on a profile you fill out, and is established “based on your habits.”

Before your invoice is sent, of course, you will receive an email allowing you to modify any information contained in it. This is helpful for sporadic jobs or gigs that are contingent on the completion of one step before being able to proceed.

Perfect for small businesses, too

Like anything freelancers find useful, this app would be right at home with any small business or startup, as well.

It’s one less job that needs to be done at the end of the week, which will always save time and money; additionally, there’s a smaller margin for error—you can proof your data once, and as long as the parameters of the job don’t change, neither will your invoice. It’s a reliable way to make sure you get paid on time and in full.

On the Recurvoice site, you’ll find a beta sign-up and very little else, so keep an eye out for the full product.
