I work alone, but I am looking for a simple, OS X or cloud based computer system to make my work flow more visible, automatic or whatever you prefer.

I ll try to structure my needs a little bit more.

job comes in, usually with a fixed price. You know ...
you have the reference(s) of the client. If the client has his own invoicing platform, like e.g. Lionbridge, Transperfect, etc. I do not have to worry - it is all in their online system.

If not - need to pick up the order ... most of them come via email
have to transfer the files to dropbox (or any other cloud system) to translate from there in Trados or similar
I need a file number assigned automatically - this is the whole basis of my filing system

Target date for completion
Invoicing (incl. reminders etc.) as automatic as possible.

At moment (don't laugh) basis of my "system" is mostly A4 sheets that have been pre-printed with all fields and I fill in by pen and pencil.

Anyone any ideas?
