Max Schmitt

I used to waste so much time writing invoices and proposals with Word. I always forgot to put in a piece of information or miscalculated some amount. With Cakedesk, all the information is autofilled and calculated correctly every time. I can finally spend more time making money and less time invoicing!

Roman Tesliuk

Cakedesk for me has been a huge time saver, it now takes just a few minutes to create a design proposal or invoice. It remembers client’s billing details and calculates VAT for you, plus it’s very easy to use. Cherry on top is its built-in templates – the Industrial one is my go-to 😻
