Information about MakeLeaps

MakeLeaps is an online quoting and invoicing tool for freelancers and businesses in Japan.

MakeLeaps started as a product line of Webnet IT K.K in 2011, currently run by MakeLeaps Corporation since 2014. The company has its main office in Tokyo, with several staff members working remotely from all over the world. MakeLeaps has users in every corner of Japan, helping thousands of businesses with quotes and invoices.

Even though the co-founders are foreigners, MakeLeaps was developed inside Japan purely for businesses in Japan.

MakeLeaps follows the Lean Startup Methodology, popularized by Eric Ries of Lean Startup . This means that instead of working for a long time in isolation on a product before the unveiling, you release your “Minimum Viable Product” as quickly as possible to get immediate feedback from your potential users.

This kaizen based methodology interestingly came from Eric Ries’s observation and inspiration from Toyota’s Taiichi Ohno, and is now followed by companies both in Japan and all around the world.

The MakeLeaps vision

  1. To unlock the potential of freelancers and businesses in Japan with MakeLeaps; clean, powerful, easy-to-use software that provides a dramatic improvement to back-office speed, accuracy and operations.
  2. To boost Japan’s economy through the increased efficiency and productivity of businesses using MakeLeaps.

Anyone in any plan can send an invoice by Japan Post for ¥148. (As of Aug 13th, 2020)
