  • It seems to be a good resource for networking and managing freelance work and opportunities. I'm particularly interested in having my work history and samples "verified" by previous clients.Verified ReviewerRead the full review

Cons

  • It was a really disappointing farewell and they refused to provide reasonable reports to off-board our freelancers and payment data.Tiffany B.Read the full review
  • Sometimes I don’t know what I should put in every field, I’ve made mistakes in the past by inputting guessed answered in some of the boxes and it’s impacted the project payments.Lindsey G.Read the full review
  • But then they forced an entirely new pricing structure on us with a week's notice, so we were forced to sign-up for a plan that cost 3-4x as much.Tiffany B.Read the full review

The first year or so with Kalo went fairly well. Our 1099 data wasn't perfect the first time around (which I blamed on switching payers mid-year), and payments went off without too many hitches. But we continually ran into small issues - a payment wasn't issued when it said it was, payments were applied to newer invoices (vs. older ones in the queue, the data was often messy (despite attempts to standardize), etc. We were willing deal with these issues as the pricing was strong and we didn't feel like there was a reasonable competitor. But then they forced an entirely new pricing structure on us with a week's notice, so we were forced to sign-up for a plan that cost 3-4x as much. We ended up switching to another competitor for better reporting and access to our data, and once we gave our notice, they pretty much cut off all support and service. It was a really disappointing farewell and they refused to provide reasonable reports to off-board our freelancers and payment data.

Pros
Visually appealing; fairly user friendly

Cons
Lack of reporting - especially for payments Rigidity of payments - couldn't process one-off payments or as desired Access to data - if you wanted a report pulled, you had to pay for a "custom" report - even if it was a simple freelancer data Unreliability of data - before AB5 went into effect, we tried to report on CA freelancers - it was more accurate to review each freelancer manually than rely on the report provided; even the search feature wasn't reliable - freelancers who clearly had CA addresses wouldn't show up the search

Kalo is my go-to source for signing up new freelancers and paying people. It's a great system, and I often recommend it to others.

Pros
Kalo is a very simple, easy way to assign and work with freelancers. They do all the heavy lifting, and it's really affordable, too.

Cons
Not much to make it better, but it could always have some additional customization options, especially to better understand how businesses use it.

Super easy to use platform and easy to set up, it integrates with AdobeSign which is a huge plus.

Pros
User experience - Kalo is super easy to use, our hiring managers love. Clear instructions on how to onboard a freelancer, feedback was incredibly positive from them and the freelancers after rollout. The biggest bonus is the reporting feature, it's loved by everyone from our Head of Marketing to CFO as we can now provide a consolidated dashboard showing freelancer spend by budget, cost code, business unit. All the areas we had no visibility over today. Also the tax feature saved our Finance team in Q4 last year as Kalo handled all 1099 submissions to the IRS.

Cons
I can't say there is anything we dislike. We integrate Kalo today with our resource management tool and we would like to see a more deep integration there so we can compare freelance resource available versus full time resource.
