Freelancers Work Manager
The advantages of using freelancers are obvious and the inconvenience also which includes not being able to actually know if your freelancers are working the hours they say they've worked, bad communication especially if the time difference is large.
I've been using freelancers for a while now and so has my partner from the UK and we decided to try to alleviate some of these inconveniences of hiring freelance workers and be left with only the positive aspects.
So we've decided to develop an application that will monitor effectively freelancers as well as improve communication drastically. We wanted something that would give the feeling that the freelancer is working right next to you. The application is nearly done now and will include the following features. We're very excited to start using this system.
-Keystroke monitoring of your freelancers during their hours of work. If you pay them, wouldn't it be nice to know that they're actually doing the work they say they are instead of writting love notes to their girlfriend or boyfriend. Of course if they wish to stop being monitered, they can simply log off. This ensures that the freelancers are only paid for the hours they've worked.
-Live Webcam chat with your freelancer. You can see and chat with your freelancers anytime they are logged on to work.
-Monitoring of hours worked, amounts of money for the hours they have worked that is owed to each freelancers as well as which amounts have been paid. Everything is also stored in a database for viewing anytime.
