Our business was born from a simple fact; the future of work is flexible, but the way we describe and contract for work is broken. We believe that the engine of the self-employed economy is activity-based work statements, easy to understand outcomes and transparent pricing models.
With two Innovate UK grants under our belt, the first for Design and the second for Emerging Technologies Machine Learning, our SaaS tool embraces big data and clever algorithms to provide our clients with insightful ways of agreeing and jointly defining work.
Whether you are a buyer of services (from teams of consultants to single person engagements), or the seller of resources with repeatable outcomes, Deployed’s platform helps you agree and contract work faster, cheaper, with less risk, and with improved delivery performance.
