We met with Robert Linder. He works as a painter and is self employed through Cool Company. “I have been working as a painter for over fifteen years and had company before. The solution Cool Company offers is better. It is orderly and ready and the money comes when they should. I can concentrate on the right thing: to work as a painter! ” Robert Linder is a fairly typical user of Cool Company. A knowledgeable professional who has chosen to become self-employed in order to concentrate on his clients instead of drowning in paperwork.
Painter with cathedral on the CV
As a painter he has assignments both for companies and private individuals. “Through Cool Company, I have no administrative problems. They can solve everything that has to do with ROT assignments, renovations, wallpapering and painting, window maintenance, ”explains Robert. During his fifteen years as a painter he has encountered both major and minor challenges: “The cathedral in Uppsala was an exciting job because it was a well-known k-marked building.”
ROT management and working in teams
Robert uses Cool Company as a tool in everyday life and manages both his invoicing and keeps track of his customer register. As a craftsman, it is especially a feature he appreciates: “The ROT management works great. I get the money without delay, ” he explains. Robert sees additional benefits in billing as a Cool Company employee, not least as he has a colleague who is also a Cool Company user. Thanks to the possibility that several self-employed people can work together in teams, it is easy to distribute both work efforts and ensure that everyone in the team receives the right salary.
Positive response as self-employed
Robert does not feel that his clients are asking why he has chosen to work as a self-employed person. “I usually say that I bill via Cool Company and there are never any question marks from the customer. On the contrary, I have received a positive response because Cool Company has been recognized from TV ”. Robert is quick to answer the question of what he thinks is the characteristics of Cool Company’s employment: “I always get quick help and professional answers. They do the paperwork in a good way, it is orderly and ready and the money is paid without any problems. ”
