Buyer beware

Reviewed 3 years ago

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),...

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

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.

Great Value For an Up and Coming Service

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall, Kalo has save us a lot of time managing freelancers. If they can leave freelancer payments to the business, it would be perfect!

Pros

Kalo makes it extremely easy to manage projects. We can keep track of tasks, receipts, and upcoming invoices.

Cons

The freelancer payment system is disjointed. We work through a rep to fund an account and Kalo processes payments. It's very cumbersome and an automated system would be great.

This Will Make Your Life Easier for Tracking and Payments

Reviewed 3 years ago

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.
