New York, New York (PressExposure) December 10, 2009 -- Lime Labs, an innovative web services company focused on facilitating the exchange of ideas and information through technology, today announced the addition of two new methods of engagement on its global services marketplace, LimeExchange. In addition to hiring talent on a per-project basis, companies can now contract freelancers on an hourly basis over a customizable time frame, or pay for recurring tasks on a per-deliverable basis, making LimeExchange the premier platform for service seekers and providers to exchange services on demand.
"By adding hourly and pay-per-task engagements to our workflow, we now provide more ways for companies to engage freelancers than any other major marketplace."
For service seekers (buyers) who do not have a complete idea of the scope of work, or moreover the scope keeps changing and/or requires related services at a different rate, LimeExchange's hourly rate mechanism is the perfect means of monitoring the number of hours worked, project deliverables, and feedback from service providers via an intuitive worksheet interface.
For buyers with projects that require repetitive tasks (i.e.: blog posts, article writing, translations, data entry, audio/video recording/editing, logo designs, HTML conversions, etc.), LimeExchange's pay-per-task option allows buyers to easily post repetitive or recurring projects and track deliverables under a single contract and project listing.
Both hourly and pay-per-task engagements have custom workflows that make it easy for buyers and providers to communicate and track the process of a job or project.
Additionally, for both new types of engagement, buyers receive time sheets and/or deliverables linked with escrow to ensure complete visibility while safeguarding risk.
"One of the factors driving businesses to the freelancer workforce is the flexibility it provides," said John Enright, VP marketing & business development, Lime Labs. "By adding hourly and pay-per-task engagements to our workflow, we now provide more ways for companies to engage freelancers than any other major marketplace."
