Smart is a co-operative for freelancers of all sorts, whom it supports by providing a secure framework which simplifies the administrative and legal burdens and frees them to develop their professional lives autonomously. Through its online platform, users can declare their contracts, manage their expenses and invoices, and pay their salaries.
It operates a double solidarity system. Firstly, Smart provides the members with the status of salaried workers, which entitles them to full social protection. Secondly, members mutualise means and risks. Smart offers a mutual guarantee fund that pays freelancers within 7 working days, insurance against accidents at work that is extended to private life (in order to protect freelancers even when they are not under contract), training, co-working spaces, tailor-made advice and thematic events at which they can exchange experience with their peers.
