We set out to build our own solution but were fortunate enough to come across Shortlist before we made a decision. Shortlist solved our immediate need as well as gave us features we heavily utilize but had not previously considered, let alone had the budget and runway to build our own features such as Talent Pools. There has not been much need for customer support based on our experience, but the few times we have needed to get in touch with Shortlist we've been impressed and our needs quickly met. In short, you'd be crazy to build your own software because Shortlist has already built the features and functionality and offers their solution for a monthly subscription.
Simplicity to get started, consistent updates, improvements, and new features are released. Software has the look and feel of a proper enterprise application.
It requires some effort to maintain your database and keep things current but this is to be expected if you have a lot of activity.

We have been Shortlist clients for about 6 months now and I have been impressed with the updates they have rolled out and the high quality customer service.
Shortlist makes it so simple to find the right partner for the right project, in a fraction of the time as before. Whenever I need someone, I can quickly search by skills, geography, etc., and can visually review past work, current ratings and even hourly rate, without ever leaving Shortlist. I believe that when it comes to managing volumes of resources, spreadsheets are just not efficient enough. Lastly, Shortlist has an amazingly responsive & flexible support team who can be reached around the clock.
Shortlist has finally solved the age old issue of how you allow Marketers to focus on being creative and driving sales whilst providing both CMO's and CPO's confidence that the supply chain is as efficient as possible.
The team behind Shortlist.co clearly just get "it", from concept through execution to client services they have taken a very smart and considered approach
Like I said in the subject title, it's the stuff Marketers' dreams are made of. No cons!

Shortlist is a great end-to-end solution to effectively source, on-board, manage and pay freelancers, contractors and vendor partners. Really smart automation that saves time and effort. Great design to consolidate what was once tedious, manual processes.
The perfect tool for managing your business - a centralised and customised platform to manage either vendors or freelancers, or both. I find that we need to be even more agile in our workplace and Shortlist allows you to manage this seamlessly.
“If only someone had come up with this idea sooner! Having personally worked on both sides of the table, it is always painful participating in an RFP process, despite how professional both parties are and how sophisticated the systems used (very rarely) are. From uploading documents, to communicating between parties, managing budgets and deadlines, I have never come across a solution as perfect as the shortlist! I highly recommend utilising this for all tenders (large and small). Life has never been so easy!”
- easy to use - we added all our freelancers and contractors - supports japanese language - great tool for managing freelancers and vendors from a single place - much better visibility into the 3rd party spend - helpful insights
I could use the platform for a while to manage personal design projects and it helped me save considerable time to find the relevant partners to work with within a few days
Shortlist is a great way to manage all aspects of the freelance and vendor management process. From screening and on-boarding through to sending a project (and all the communication in between) and payment. It will save time on the administrating the sourcing process and make sure no good partners slip through the cracks.
