The difficulty freelancers experience in getting consistently paid on time remains at the top of the list.
An employee is sure to receive their monthly salary. As it's one of their company's core responsibility, the payment process is recurring and automated.
In opposition, for a freelancer to get paid, their client has to produce an effort outside of their daily habits. That makes the payment a one-off and manual process.
In practice, this changes everything.

enjoy relative outcome and timing certainty
On top of the milestones mechanism, we're adding the basic functionalities one would expect from a freelancer platform (apart from matching freelancer and client together), namely invoice generation and lightweight project management.
