Why the change?
We believe in continuously pushing the boundaries to make your journey at Kolabtree seamless and stress-free. Our revamped model focuses on providing you with personalized support throughout your projects, simplifying processes, and delivering exceptional results.
What does the new Managed Service Model look like?
Prepare to be amazed by the seamless collaboration and support you’ll experience throughout your projects! Here’s a glimpse of the remarkable features that await you:
- Project Creation and Freelancer Selection: We understand the importance of maintaining your freedom to choose the best freelancers to collaborate with. Rest assured, our new model retains the familiar project creation and freelancer discovery/invitation processes, allowing you to work with your preferred freelancers seamlessly.
- Streamlined Proposals and Pricing: With the new model, you will receive detailed proposals directly from Kolabtree. These proposals will include a comprehensive Statement of Work (SOW), project fees, milestones, and deadlines. No more managing pricing discussions with freelancers – we take care of it all for you.
- Flexibility to Accept SOW Proposals: You have the freedom to review and accept the SOW proposal that aligns perfectly with your project requirements. This accepted proposal will serve as the foundation of the agreement between you and Kolabtree, ensuring transparency and clarity from the outset.
- Convenient Payment Process: To simplify the payment process, before the freelancer commences work on your project, you’ll be asked to pay the project fee (for the first milestone or block of hours) into the wallet. This ensures a smooth workflow and allows you to focus on project progress.
- Direct Collaboration for Outstanding Results: Collaboration with your chosen freelancer remains direct and uninterrupted. Throughout the project cycle, you will work closely with the freelancer to ensure that deliverables meet and exceed your expectations.
- Quality Approval and Hassle-Free Invoicing: We understand the importance of delivering exceptional quality. You will only be required to approve the deliverables if they meet your stringent quality standards. Once approved, an invoice will be issued promptly, simplifying the financial aspect of your projects.
- Simplified Agreements: All vendor supplier forms or master service agreements will be made with Kolabtree. This simplifies the administrative aspects of your collaborations, allowing you to focus on what matters most – achieving outstanding results.

- These updated documents are designed to ensure a fair and transparent environment for collaboration, outlining the rights, responsibilities, and obligations of all parties involved.
- We will be sharing these documents with you shortly so you can review them and familiarize yourself with the new terms before accepting.
