With the rise of the gig economy and the increasing reliance on independent talent, companies are looking for go-to solutions to streamline their complex operations. To tackle these challenges, Thriv has already for years offered its clients tailor-made services to make their lives easier when using external tech talents. Next, let’s explore five major benefits of centrally managing subcontractors and the multitude of agreements through a partner like us.

Enhanced efficiency and time savings

One of the key benefits of centralising subcontractor management is the significant improvement in efficiency and time savings. By consolidating subcontractor-related activities into a centralised management service by Thriv, you can eliminate the need for multiple contact points and tedious paperwork. The streamlined process allows for faster onboarding, contract creation, and seamless communication, enabling you to allocate your time and resources more effectively.

Cost optimisation

In addition to time savings, centralised subcontractor management allows you to optimise costs by utilizing Thriv’s extensive knowledge of market prices and expertise in subcontractor price negotiations. As part of the service, we at Thriv help with negotiating prices with subcontractors so that they match with industry standards. By outsourcing this task to a specialised company, you can free up your internal team’s time and focus on core business activities while saving money and improving future cost predictability.

Single point of contact

Centralised management provides you with the advantage of having a single point of contact for all subcontractor-related matters. Instead of navigating through a complex network of independent contractors, you can rely on Thriv to handle all communication, documentation, and issue resolution. This single point of contact not only simplifies the process but also reduces the risk of miscommunication and ensures a consistent experience for all stakeholders involved. Facilitating collaboration helps foster stronger relationships with subcontractors, leading to increased satisfaction and improved project outcomes.

Contract standardisation and compliance

Managing subcontractors often entails dealing with a wide range of contract templates, terms, and conditions. Thriv’s centralised management allows you to standardise contract templates, ensuring consistency, and promoting compliance across all subcontractors. By implementing standardised contracts, businesses can mitigate legal risks, simplify contract negotiations, and facilitate a smoother working relationship with external talents.

Access to a diverse talent pool and specialised expertise

With Thriv’s centralised service in place, you gain the ability to curate and maintain a significantly more diverse pool of qualified subcontractors. In addition, we at Thriv have in-depth knowledge of the industry, market trends, and the skill sets required for successful project delivery. By leveraging our extensive network and experience, you can quickly connect with the right talent for their specific needs, ensuring the delivery of high-quality work. The access to a diverse talent pool not only saves you the time and effort of scouting for suitable subcontractors but also enhances the overall quality and expertise of the contracted workforce.

The modern world of software development is increasingly leaning on independent contracting, so managing the variety of subcontractors is becoming more complex. As explained above, centrally managing subcontractors offers numerous benefits for companies utilising external talents. From enhanced efficiency and time savings to a single point of contact and access to a diverse talent pool, the advantages are clear. Using Thriv as a subcontractor management partner enables businesses to streamline their operations, reduce administrative burden, and achieve greater control over their contractual relationships.
