Save Time, Money & Paperwork by Hiring Online with Upwork Enterprise

  1. 1. Draft and advertise a project description and request for proposal (RFP). Wait for quality talent to submit proposals. Review proposals, interview and vet talent, and negotiate contract terms. Hire lawyer to draft contractor agreements and Statements of Work (SOW). Internally approve agreements, send to contractor, then wait for them to review, sign and return. REVIEW PROPOSALS AND MAKE AN OFFER. Once the contractor accepts terms, you have a working Service Contract—NO NEED TO DRAFT SEPARATE AGREEMENTS FOR CONTRACTORS TO SIGN AND FILE. *3 DAYS (AVERAGE TIME TO HIRE)*2-3 WEEKS TO SOURCE THE RIGHT TALENT Project description Terms Milestones CONTRACTING WITH FREELANCERS ONLINE WITH UPWORK ENTERPRISE TRADITIONAL CHANNEL UPWORK ENTERPRISE The more contractors you hire, the more paperwork there is to manage.

  2. 2. Communicating with and tracking the deadlines of contractors can be tedious and time consuming. Assigning milestones and project tasks for each contractor is crucial but inefficient when done offline. Getting an accurate, real-time view of active projects and billable hours across projects requires spreadsheets and lots of detail. Bridging the gap between remote and on-site teams can create extra work. Cut down on communication channels and emails with real-time messaging. Stay in touch with 1 or 100 freelancers at once with “broadcast messages,” message rooms, and file sharing.

  3. 3. The offline payment process can create a lag in how quickly contractors are paid for their work. Client assigns milestones, receives work, and pays contractors on an individual basis. Paying contractors offline requires: Streamline and automate payment of freelancers: Purchase Orders Receiving, processing and approving invoices Time from Accounts Payable Set milestones, create Activity Codes for billing, and make bulk payments for all contractors. Track rates Customize by freelancer (hourly, fixed, milestone) Choose from many currencies PAYING FREELANCERS ONLINE WITH UPWORK ENTERPRISE TRADITIONAL CHANNEL UPWORK ENTERPRISE
  4. 4. When it comes time to report contractor payments for tax purposes, pulling together tax forms and ensuring compliance can take lots of time and effort. When working with numerous contractors, it’s possible to misclassify contract work. The software provides a single system for complete visibility and compliance reporting across all departments. Detailed reporting can break down billable hours by project, Activity Code, and any custom data fields. When you subscribe to compliance services, Upwork determines the proper work classification and offers indemnification from misclassification risk.
