The Challenge

At dozens of locations in Europe’s metropolises, freelance fitness coaches drive BEAT81 customers to peak performance every day. With a constantly growing pool of coaches, new requirements for efficient freelancer management arise.

Managing hundreds of contacts with confusing Excel spreadsheets was tedious. Processing countless invoices in various forms every day was time-consuming. The implementation of uniform quality standards in the acquisition of new freelance coaches was not always given.

The Requirements

BEAT81 was looking for a technical solution to optimize all processes in the course of the cooperation with freelancers. Starting with the onboarding of new talents, the legally compliant engagement and the fast and standardized payment.

It should also be possible to evaluate the performance of external employees on an ongoing basis in order to offer customers fitness courses of similar high quality at all locations.

The Solution

With Lano, BEAT81 organizes its talent pool, in which all freelancers are represented with a profile that provides information about special skills. If trainers are not available for certain courses, a replacement can be quickly found in the network.

All invoices can now be managed centrally with Lano. Freelancers can automatically generate and submit invoices, while BEAT81 can approve invoices in a standardized procedure and pay directly via Lano.
