The Situation

To support Fly By Jing’s rapid growth, founder and CEO Jing Gao relies on a growing team of independent contractors. Managing contracting, onboarding, and paying Fly By Jing’s contractors was becoming an increasingly time-consuming task. Gao says that “We were managing everything for our contractors manually, which easily creates errors.”

Gao noted that “I was hesitant to change how we managed our contractors as I wasn’t sure whether it would be as productive.”

However, she needed a solution that would “make it easier to scale the team without dealing with administrative headaches.” Gao and her team started using Liquid to help her manage all Fly By Jing’s contractors, legal documents, invoices, and payments in one place.

The Results

Gao noted that “Liquid saves me lots of time – every month that’s dozens of hours more I spend growing Fly By Jing.”

Now Gao has clarity on all her contractors’ contracts, SOWs, and payment schedule – everything is readily accessible from her Liquid dashboard. She can quickly onboard new contractors and easily manage payments.

Gao recommends other startups consider using Liquid to help their businesses grow – “Do it. It can be more productive and efficient for everyone involved.”
