BOULDER, Colo., June 21, 2022 – Today, Hectic announced the launch of the FreelancerOS™, a platform designed for busy freelancers. The all-inclusive tool offers streamlined business management for freelancers at any stage of their journey. Hectic provides the ability to start, manage and grow a successful freelance business in one place, enabling freelance professionals to focus on increasing productivity and earning more income.

As more workers turn to freelance work – an estimated 130 million by 2028 – they find that learning to manage a freelance business can be overwhelming. Freelancers say they spend just 52% of their time on billable work.

Despite the myriad of options available to freelancers, many find themselves cobbling together a solution made up of multiple tools. This makes it challenging to keep track of everything and get an overview of the business at a glance on one dashboard. Add in the associated costs, and many who want to freelance long-term are discouraged.

“If you want to be your own boss, Hectic is an all-inclusive platform designed to help you turn your passion, talent, and dreams into a thriving business,” Darryl Kelly, founder, Hectic. “We’re reimagining the system, demystifying self-employment, and breaking down every barrier we can to create a world where freelancing isn’t just a daydream—it’s a day job. And it’s attainable no matter who you are.”

As a freelancer, Hectic helps you save time and allows you to focus on client work so you can earn more money.

"I can't say enough about the team at Hectic,” says Matt Wright, marketing strategist. “They are committed to creating a great one-stop dashboard for freelancers, and it shows. Anytime I've raised a question in chat, one of the founders is there in minutes asking questions and helping me figure out my issue. The product itself is great and really affordable compared to competitors in the space – and it keeps getting better." 

Hectic is available on the web and via mobile and gives those who freelance a way to efficiently manage clients, projects, scheduling, accounting, invoices, proposals, contracts, and more. Users can sign up for a free trial with no credit card required. 

In addition, Hectic offers resources to help with insurance, banking and continuing education. Freelancers often lack access to further education and training that would help them grow their businesses. 53% say they wish they had better access to learn hard, soft and freelance business skills.  To help, Hectic offers its Hectic Academy featuring a series of micro-modules with short, expert-led informative videos, quick accompanying exercises, and downloadable assets, all at no cost.

Pricing and availability

“At Hectic, our vision is to make freelancing accessible to everyone,” said Kelly. “We’re on a mission to empower every entrepreneurial mind to turn passion into success.”

Monthly plans include the Pro level at $19.99 per month and the Teams plan at $29.99 per month (or get ~2 months free when you pay annually). Every user receives priority support.

Hectic seamlessly connects with popular tools, including Slack, Zoom, Stripe, PayPal, QuickBooks, GSuite, and more. Visit https://www.hecticapp.com/ for more information about Hectic’s FreelancerOS™ today.
