The new function of 2Performant facilitates the collaboration of brands and agencies with instagrammers, bloggers, vloggers, owners of Facebook pages, websites with high number of visitors or any type of content creators. 2Performant digitalizes the contracts and automatizes the payments, eliminating bureaucracy from the business process. According to company’s representatives, the platform reduces by 99% the needed papers for collaborations within the industry, accelerates the contracting and payment process and eases the management of budgets, facilitating the reporting.
Imagine a social media agency that is running 10 campaigns with minimul 5 influencers each – that means 50 contracts with different juridical entities, printed and sent to each to be signed, 50 payments that need to be approved and operated by the financial department. Many times, all those occupy up to 20-30% of the work time of a specialist that is blocked in papers instead of doing his job and generate real value. With 2Performant, the entire process is solved in just a few clicks
