Belgian 'Airbnb for IT talent' unites over 500 freelancers in 3 months

Friday, February 12, 2016 — proUnity, the new Belgian 'Airbnb for IT-freelancers and companies' started 2016 with good news.

This community of 240 freelance IT experts ends its own activities and joins proUnity, to benefit from more opportunities, and valuable integrated tools.

A fresh start

Their first reactions are unanimously positive. Especially the administrative power, smooth invoicing and direct connections get a lot of praise.

Missing link

Pieter Degraeuwe, founder of UnitedConsultants:
"We were looking for the missing link between IT buyers and freelancers; proUnity had all the answers. Our members now receive direct access to top projects, coupled with excellent admin tools. We have built our UnitedConsultants community with great enthusiasm. With this migration, we further improve our service and strengthen our network. "

Perfect timing

Companies are increasingly looking for cost-efficient process management solutions. Digital transformation is moving up on the agenda of organizations, while more and more talented people decide to continue their career as self-employed experts.

Meanwhile, the international demand for qualified IT ressources is growing, in mobile, data mining, SEO/ SEM and system integration, in addition to consultants in UX development, cloud and distributed computing, business intelligence and digital marketing. proUnity is their match maker, the right link at the right time.

David Muyldermans, founder of proUnity:
"It's time for a cost-efficient contingent workforce management solution.
 A user-friendly tool making the search and daily management of IT experts as easy as one, two, three. One centralized platform where CxO's can propose their jobs either directly to the freelancer, 
or to one of their preferred suppliers. Our system automatically links top profiles to job opportunities and offers businesses the operational efficiency they need.

As a transparent matchmaker, we exclude body shoppers so that you pay the right price."
