The workforce of tomorrow is already here today! Gartner predicts that by 2020, more than 50% of the workforce will be comprised of external workers including freelancers, contractors and vendors. This means more companies will rely on external partners, contractors and vendors to be successful.

Shortlist is a SaaS offering for the Gig Economy. Shortlist helps companies find and manage their complete external workforce (freelancers, contractors and vendors) by providing a single platform to source, on-board, manage, review/rate and pay them.

Shortlist.co is comprised of three components:

Shortlist Platform: A beautifully simple tool for managing your partners, writing briefs and response forms and seeing insights into who you've worked with and how they've performed over time.

Discovery Network: A diverse set of global agencies (small, medium and large) easily searchable so that companies can find new potential partners across the street or across the globe for their next project. Search by location, speciality, size, etc. and then invite to your shortlist with one click.

Shortlist Services: A set of services meant to help you build an agile & robust workforce. Need help finding 5 freelancers for your next project? Need us to on-board a group of new vendors? Need someone to run your next RFP during the busy period.

 Vendor Recruiting - Fast and Reliable

- No Mobile access. - Sometimes difficult to find the thread to reply to your vendor's message. - Would be useful to have a shared folder kind of feature, to include project attachments. I started using this tool in order to keep track of several projects I had to develop with external vendors ...

A True End-to-End Workforce Management Platform

20/02/2017

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.

Pros

Simplicity to get started, consistent updates, improvements, and new features are released. Software has the look and feel of a proper enterprise application.

Cons

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.

Increased efficiency and visibility

30/01/2017

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.

The stuff Marketers' Dreams are made of....

13/05/2016

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.

Pros

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

Cons

Like I said in the subject title, it's the stuff Marketers' dreams are made of. No cons!

Cons

Get shortlist

26/04/2016

“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!”

Pros

user friendly and great support

Cons

None that I can think of

Great way to manage freelancers & Vendors

22/04/2016

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.
