Peerwith can connect you with international, academic experts in author services. And by that, we don’t just mean connecting authors with experts, we can also connect your (editorial) staff. In book production departments, for example, staff may be dealing with freelancers in proofreading, copy-editing and book indexing. Hiring these freelancers can be an administrative burden. In a private marketplace, powered by Peerwith, a simpler and more desirable alternative is available to your (editorial) staff.
But that isn’t the only advantage. Peerwith’s peer-to-peer marketplace model is unique and guarantees fair fees for high-quality, tailored services, all carried out in a transparent business model. For every job request, experts offer price quotes over a wide range, sometimes 40-50% between the cheapest and most expensive offering. That means for each job you are offered a choice in the detail of the service offering.
Our new “Private Marketplace” is an efficient alternative to the manual management of freelancers by your (editorial) staff. By adopting this tool (a customized platform, in a marketplace model), you can take advantage of clear benefits in the hiring and management of editorial freelancers:
- More transparency (activities and cost), and less administrative burden (financial administration)
- Better price / quality ratio per project
- Lower fees per assignment (e.g. cost saving on each book published)
The Private Marketplace offering comes with a management console feature called the “Cockpit” that allows you to gain insight and draw data from your Private Marketplace. The solution is offered in a Software-as-a-Service proposition.
If you are interested in signing up to our Private Marketplace offering or would simply like to find out more, please get in touch.
Our vision is to push the frontiers of communication in science by providing the most innovative, smart, secure, integrable and transparent technological solutions. We aim to advance science globally by connecting researchers with international experts to improve the quality of their academic work.
