Softwork Re-launches With Upgraded Platform ~Omonaijablog


Softwork, a leading platform with the sole aim of connecting employers with freelancers, has upgraded its services. The live re-launch was held on Friday, January 15, 2020 in Lagos.  The website has a new look which is the least of improved features.

Led by Chigozie Okwara, the founder and CEO of SoftWork, the platform is the bridge between the talented and those in need of certain skills. Speaking at the launch, he said: “Every individual signing up wants to work and exchange vital information in a safe and secure space. We have designed an online platform where freelancers (web designers, developers, video editors, digital marketers, graphic designers e.t.c) can meet.

“We have connected over 5,000 freelancers with employers and every day, we look for ways to verify any individual who signs up on the website. The verification is more intense to avoid fraudsters posing as freelancers or employers. There is the email verification process, Identity card verification process by uploading National ID cards, Passport or Driving License to verify your identity. Without verification, jobs cannot be applied for. It is important employers get the worth for every price paid”.
Softwork is an extremely beneficial platform that does not only connect businesses with ideal skills but dishes out articles on ways to improve by updating those signed up, on the latest trends circling their area of expertise; as well as how they can acquire new skills needed for better work.

Okwara noted that distance is no barrier for work on Softwork, as clients can monitor every work carried out. “Unlike many platforms, we make use of Escrow (making us a third party to the payment process, until the specified job is done). This allows for  a refund in  a situation where there is need for one”.
Since beginning operations fully in 2018, SoftWork has helped reduce the stress freelancers go through to get jobs, and helped employers get reliable services. Freelancers can also get recommendations as well as send proposals to employers, vis-a-vis.
