In March 2020, a storm raged across borders and a panicked atmosphere spread in the back seat. Employees were sent home in droves, and the streets were suddenly deserted.
But it was also in March 2020 that we had the first version of Factofly, and frankly we were a little unsure whether the timing was now also right, or whether we should wait to press the big green launch button.
In the team we talked about how we should handle the situation, but “if not now, when then”? After shaking off the worst fears, version 1.0 went live and soon after we were able to onboard the first user. And she is actually still there to this day.
In the early days, the system was somewhat handheld, but it was important to get close to our users from the start in order to continuously take in feedback and shape the product.
Over the past 2.5 years, the snowball has slowly rolled thicker and heavier, and today we help more than 2,000 freelancers and self-employed people get paid. Because the vision of making it easier to be a freelancer and choose a career with full freedom has not become more blurred as time has passed. On the contrary.
