Overview of Shortlist benefits

Shortlist offers a freelance management platform that lets users be free from the usual chaos of spreadsheets, allowing them to find, on-board, communicate and manage their independent contractors. All information of their freelancers, independent contractors, and vendors, including the work and hours they have done, are consolidated in one simple dashboard that is accessible to all employees.

Administrators can also send out simple to complex RFPs/RFIs in just a few clicks while tracking everyone’s progress so they get to gain real time visibility. This also makes for easier and more accurate performance tracking and rating, with feedback automatically collected after each project.

Every worker’s documents and invoices are stored securely in one central location that is readily accessible. A central dashboard is also available for administrators to get live insights into performance of their talents or workforce. This dashboard also provides an overview of talent/workforce skills and categories, as well as on-boarding compliance and worker classification.
