CADBID Links Potential Clients with CAD Freelancers10 Jun, 2008
Online service provides method of outsourcing CAD work to registered users in the United Kingdom.
CADBID launched a new online service this week that helps CAD freelancers to find clients and clients to find CAD workers in the United Kingdom. As such, the company reports that the Web site is designed as a resource for freelance CAD workers, CAD bureaus, and any organization that uses CAD resources with no transaction-based fees.
Exclusive to UK-based CAD users and clients, freelancers can use the site to market themselves and bid for particular projects; clients can use the service to manage the peak and troughs of CAD work and invite bids for particular projects.
A key element of CADBID is that clients retain complete privacy unless they choose to contact the CAD freelancer. And once the relationship has been formed, both parties are free to work together as often as they like without reference to CADBID.
CADBID does not charge a fee per project, or claim a percentage of any works. Freelancers can register free for entry-level membership or enhance their profile for a small annual fee. Clients have full access to CADBID's resources completely free of charge.
When CAD users register, they create a profile outlining particular skills and experience. Using CADBID's tools, clients can search the database using a range of criteria such as experience, software, or location. Clients may also choose to post projects and invite freelancers to bid for them. Bids are submitted through the Web site, so bidders do not know the client's identity until the client chooses to contact them.
