We’re pleased to announce the official launch of our Project Management (also known as Technical Co-pilot) service this month, which is now available as an upgrade that can be added to any open project.
We’ve had lots of questions about the new service, so here’s a short overview to tell you a bit more about Project Management and how it can help you ensure success for your longer projects.
Who is it for?
If you find yourself spending more time running your project and chatting with your freelancer everyday than you’d like, then Project Management is for you.
We believe that your time is best spent on the things that matter, and that managing projects can become a time intensive exercise.
Our Technical Co-pilots are here to help, ensuring your project is a success with as little effort from you as possible.
What are the benefits of having a Technical Co-pilot?
Never miss your deadlines: Your Technical Co-pilot will stay on top of all your project deliverables, ensuring where possible that the Freelancer delivers on time.
Save time: We’ll manage the daily check-ins with your Freelancer so that you don’t have to. We’ll provide regular status updates and your input will be needed only when required
Project Expertise: Our Technical Co-pilot are experts in their field and will ensure you get the benefits of their expertise. Additionally, they know the site backwards and can help you with any queries you may have while your project is underway.
How much does it cost?
The service costs just $35/hour (or your local equivalent), which is billed weekly. Your Technical Co-pilot will let update your regularly on their time spent on your project, and you can cancel at any time.
For smaller projects, this works out on average at 1-10 hours in total, which would be a fee of $35 - $350. Larger projects may extend longer than this, depending on the duration of the project.
How do I upgrade my project?
Simply visit https://www.freelancer.com/project-management/ and as long as you have an open project the option to “Hire a Technical Co-pilot” will be available.
A Technical Co-pilot will be assigned to you and will contact you via Freelancer chat.
