Client Case Study: Write Arm
Write Arm is a content and copywriting agency providing written content for marketers across the world and works entirely remotely. The business has hundreds of freelance writers working for them which enables them to provide flexibility for their clients.
The challenge of working with hundreds of freelancers is having to manage them, as Write Arm owner John Ashton explained to us. “You can’t just add them to a spreadsheet and hope to find the right people at the right time”.
Businesses like Write Arm that rely on many freelancers to get work done for their clients very quickly find themselves outgrowing the spreadsheet stage and needing an efficient management system. As John communicated to us, Write Arm was looking for something more sophisticated to manage both their growing pool of talent and their ongoing projects, which is why they came to TalentDesk.io.
Another challenge faced by Write Arm was having to deal with hundreds of invoices. On average, the business has 300+ projects per year, some of them involving multiple freelancers. This would result in thousands of invoices and a huge headache involved in keeping track of them.

“As we know a lot of businesses are moving to that (freelance) model - it’s very much part of the new economy. I think TalentDesk.io are way ahead of the curve. They have seen the future and they are providing a solution for the challenges that those businesses are going to have.”
