Freelance Management Software Overview

What is Freelance Management Software?

Freelance Management Software allows an employer to locate and hire freelancers for work. Additionally, many FMS allow hirers to track, manage and pay for work performed by their contracted workforce all within its system.


Modern freelance management software provides a number of tools for ensuring contractors are the right fit to the job, including portfolio screening, job bidding and proposal comparison. Most freelance management systems are cloud-based and touted as faster and more flexible than the vendor management system (VMS) they might replace.

Freelance management software offers the following capabilities.

  • Freelancer portfolio screening, resume validation

  • Talent vetting and recommendations

  • Internship management

  • In-platform communication tools (e.g. live chat)

  • Job posting, job board

  • Live hiring assistance

  • Job payment management

  • Anonymous talent search

  • Consolidated invoicing & billing

  • Secure, encrypted payment system

Pricing Information

Joining or registering with a freelance management software can be free, though some services are available on a subscription basis or as a percentage of hiring cost. More advanced services available at higher priced subscription include custom portal and contract management, compliance services, and dedicated account management.
