Lano has revolutionized the way we work with our contractors. The platform is exceptionally intuitive and easy to use – both for our employees and contractors.
Zuumeo is one of the leading content providers in Germany. Customers like Zalando, About You or Galeria Kaufhof trust in the quality of Zuumeo's services – whether product photography, video production or writing of high-quality texts. Headquartered in Berlin and synonymous with cutting edge campaigns, Zuumeo relies on high velocity and an accessible workforce that can meet the demands of the day.
In order to achieve these goals, Zuumeo established a strong network of contractors and freelancers. A smooth and scalable management of all external workers is critical to the long term success of the company.
Contractors and freelancers are indispensable for Zuumeo’s daily production operations. But coordinating a constantly growing pool of external specialists has taken up countless hours every week. In the past, the processes were largely manual.
Zuumeo previously managed contractors with Excel spreadsheets and handled communication via phone or email which led to long processes and manual invoicing. It was clear that the lack of a centralized repository was costing the Zuumeo team time, and thus, the management was looking for a solution to optimize all administrative workflows.
Due to the rapidly increasing demand for contractors and freelancers, it is paramount that Zuumeo offers seamless and compliant onboarding procedures and payments on time and without errors.
Lano enables Zuumeo to bring these operations around contractor collaboration and supervision into a single platform. New team members can be integrated into the existing network in record time thanks to standardized and automated onboarding. A searchable talent pool replaces confusing Excel spreadsheets.
Project managers can quickly find suitable existing specialists in their Lano talent pool, assign them to a project, and brief them directly via Lano. The progress of projects can be tracked transparently and in real-time. Punctual and stress-free invoice approvals and payouts via Lano ensure satisfaction among both contractors and employees.
The Lano Wallet enables the team to quickly and transparently pay their employees based on the invoices stored within Lano. With a few clicks, the team has peace of mind that the payments are correct, that the relevant documentation is available, and that payments are processed in a timely manner, building more trust in the contractor relationship.
With the implementation of Lano, Zuumeo was able to streamline their workflows related to contractor management into a single platform. The switch to Lano automated many of the processes and reduced the number of errors that are inevitable with manual operations. Zuumeo reduced the time and resources required to manage their network of contractors and freelancers, and thus significantly increased productivity in everyday work.
