How Ditto Stacks Up

When it comes to workflow processes, Ditto is in a class of its own.
 

Unlike “one stop shop” apps with fragmented and complicated toolkits, Ditto is simple, intuitive, and fully streamlined. When you work with Ditto, the entire process – from initial proposal to final deliverable – is fully integrated into one workflow. And better yet, Ditto takes care of everything. Just set up your project once and leave the rest to us. 

Ditto’s process is simple and straightforward for both contractors and clients. No advanced skillsets or setups are required (looking at you, Dubsado).  Ditto was designed by freelancers who’ve been on both sides of the table – we’ve worked as freelancers, and as clients. We’ve experienced the unique challenges faced by contractors and clients alike and we cut through the noise to provide only the tools you need to be productive, no more, no less.

Plain and simple, Ditto is process perfected. 

An Agile Process for Agile Work.

We’ve streamlined proposals, project setup, workflow, client communications and payments into one simple, unfragmented flow. You set up the project once and we handle transactional communication,status updates, invoicing and payments, and everything in between.



Ditto is not...

A contract builder. In fact, we’d like to do away with static contracts all together. When you work with Ditto, you agree to a way of working: Clients pay for each phase of work before it begins and we release payments promptly to contractors at the end of each phase. As long as the contractor and client agree - by way of our legally binding onboarding process - to this fundamental way of working, no further contracts are required.

A replacement for expense/accounting reporting apps like Quickbooks. Very soon we plan to integrate with Quickbooks and Zero to update your accounting documentation with just the click of a button. Ditto does handle all 1099 tax filing – Clients love that.

‍A payment platform or Freelancer bank. Ditto will never offer one-off transactions, classic invoicing or billing toolkits. We do offer a better way to get paid in the context of contract work. Contractors will never worry about late or lack of payment, and clients will never worry about unexpected budget balloons. 

A task and/or time manager. Though we do plan to offer time tracking functionality for hourly work. Ditto breaks projects down into smaller chunks of work that are each valued independently of each other. This phasing approach eliminates the need for granular task tracking but provides the right amount of documentation to let the client know where the work stands at all times.
