Donna Farrugia, Executive Director of The Creative Group, has a great post over at inHOWse blog about how to help freelancers feel welcome and start contributing to your team’s creative work. Her tips are insightful and really could apply to any new hire in your organization. But it got us thinking – what about those freelancers who aren’t so fully integrated into your in-house team?
Your freelancers might include a designer working remotely to assist with a single project, a professional photographer hired for one-time product shots, or an ad sales team at a local market publication. In these scenarios, it can be a struggle to provide enough open communication that your freelancers can work efficiently while also limiting their access to your organization’s sensitive information. That’s why we created Vendor Connect for inMotion.
The Vendor Connect module allows in-house creative departments using inMotionNow’s Approval Workflow Solution to easily and securely invite vendors into their internal review and approval process. With Vendor Connect, freelancers are able to upload a variety of content types through an invitation-only portal without logging into an inMotion account. The content is then routed internally for review based on pre-determined workflows set up by the in-house team. This ensures in-house and client stakeholders get the benefits of inMotion’s intuitive review interface and advanced workflow management capabilities without exposing sensitive internal data and client contact information to the vendor.
To learn about how Vendor Connect can help your freelancers fit in and flourish, schedule a brief discovery call with one of our approval workflow specialists or call us at 888.462.8044.
