Through internet based platforms TransparentBusiness and Yandiki offer companies and workers the necessary tools to get “matched up” and to work together remotely, without the need of physical offices.
Editor’s Note: Silvina Moschini is a specialized consultant in the areas of Technology, Internet Technology, Public Relations and Social Networking. She is also founder of the Social Media agency Intuic and co-founder of TransparentBusiness.com.
TransparentBusiness and Yandiki aims to eliminate offices and change the traditional management and administration models with internet based tools.
This way companies can manage employees from all parts of the world and and offer a flexible work scheme to millennials, who make up 25% of the global workforce.
The company started in 2009, after the financial crisis and filled the need for a flexible work process that allowed the coordination of a widely dispersed team of workers. “We had more than 150 employees around the world,” said Silvina Moschini, founder of TransparentBusiness.
The entrepreneur explained that it’s possible to eliminate offices, because the team can connect through TransparentBusiness, you can select a task for the worker or assign them a client. Meanwhile, the administrator can give the employee instant feedback. Using this system, companies can grow by hiring people to provide services on demand, and harnessing young talent.
“Millennials see work as something that has to be done and as a place you have to go to, and they don’t want to go to an office. They give a new meaning to the expression ‘face to face’ with video-conferences through Skype, or FaceTime. This can be done remotely,” Moschini pointed out.
TransparentBusiness has 2 business models for acquiring funds. The first consists in selling licences to their Software as a Service (SaaS).
The second, is a free system for entrepreneurs to manage upto 5 people; after the sixth person the licence costs $30 a month. They currently have 9 thousand clients.
Yandiki complements the TransparentBusiness platform. It matches companies with the specialized talent they’re looking for, according to Moschini. Yandiki administrators invite participants to take part in a job market that is tailored to the needs of their companies.
“Yandiki was born with a cloud of editors, infographic designers, programmers and today it is a cloud of creative talent. We want the place where you live never again to determine who you will work for,” said the entrepreneur.
The company’s main focus is to find talent in the countries of Latin America and to connect them with companies in the United States, where 57% of businesses have trouble filling creative talent vacancies.
Currently there are 297 people registered with Yandiki. Facebook selected them as global partners for their Facebook Start platform and they have 15 corporate clients such as Hewlett Packard, Sony, Twitter y Google.
“We have recruiters that stand out in creative fields, content creators, writers and editors. Here, we not only take note of a person’s résumé, but also of their recommendations and work ratings,” said the entrepreneur.
Yandiki’s talent does not compete for work. The company carries out a study and creates a control panel with the cost of tasks from each market and adds 15-20% to pay workers. Yandiki’s business model consists in charging companies a commission that varies from country to country.
“We always pay in dollars,” Moschini pointed out.
