Tell us about your company and your customers
Avitar is an international online business law firm. Our specialization is support for IT companies that are developing and expanding to the markets of the EU, USA, and Great Britain. We help with Corporate & Tax, Data Protection & Marketing compliance, as well as support investment agreements.
The company was formed in 2018, when Myroslav, my partner, completely left in-house. That is, now our company is 5 years old.

In 2022, our team grew a lot, but then we started making mistakes, someone burned out, and people started quitting. Most likely, this happened because we were inexperienced entrepreneurs who made many mistakes within the organization. Therefore, our company is going through difficult times.
How did you come to Worksection?
I got a little tired of keeping financial statements in Excel, I wanted some beauty, aesthetics and a human face concerning managing information. As a result, we came to Worksection because it makes the most sense for a business like ours. 1C is complex, Excel often does not provide the kind of infographic you need. In addition, we wanted to support Ukrainian business.
What service tools help you in your work?
It’s great that Worksection allows you to track time. It is cool to be able to manage working hours. When you grow, you don’t count money in small things, who works how much. And then, when you get more people, with larger wages, you start a cash gap. Then you start to worry about which employee is working on which project, or whether they are working on projects that are not profitable for us.
Time tracker in Worksection
If you start something like tracking time and money, then be prepared that the team will rebel. That was, in fact, one of the reasons why we failed: because we implemented it too late. But it gives excellent feedback on the efficiency of your business.
We also actively use the Gantt chart. It is an essential tool when working with long-term projects with 20, 50 or more tasks.
“With Worksection you know who, when, where and how much……”
We are one of the best in the market when it comes to protecting personal data. In this case, we made a compromise: we still store information in our databases, and use Worksection as a port, because this system is for other tasks. We do not use it for large storage, as there is still email and a large number of email-associated documents.
Worksection, as a tool, solves another problem: with it, it is clear who, when, where and how much. For us, it’s about money, responsible people, time and making everything clear.
I tell everyone right away that we work with Worksection. I can’t even think of anything else.
