EC Innovations (EC), unveiled today a freelance portal release of its self-developed Translation Business Management System (TBMS). Coming after one year of successful internal operation of this system, the new freelance portal provides a point for EC’s freelancers to gain real-time access to this internal system to get project assignments, make deliveries and check for related information.
The web-based TBMS was developed by EC’s own engineers and began operating formally on August 1, 2006. This comprehensive software was customized specially to fit EC’s own project management process to offer a unique functionality in project, resource, client, information and financial management. This system includes the following nine independent modules, which effectively control all aspects of a project cycle: Account Management, Resource Management, Workflow Implementation, QA System, Knowledge Management, Purchase Order/Invoice Management, Sales Management, Business Management, and Performance Management.
The freelance portal can be accessed from EC’s public Website by a preassigned username and password. Integrated into the core TBMS database, real-time project information for freelancers is filtered out and listed in the portal. Freelancers can check project requirements, propose query reports, upload finished assignments to the TBMS or check unpaid/paid projects through this portal. Project status is updated automatically upon execution by authorized personnel.
This portal helps EC include its freelancers in the use of the TBMS to share information efficiently. The next step is to develop a client portal for the TBMS so that EC’s clients can track and monitor project progress conveniently on a real-time basis and provide timely support and supervision.
After ten years of solid accumulation and consistently focusing on improving project quality, EC has also developed other smaller tools to aid in edit recording, glossary creation, and data analysis. Continually striving to be the best localization and translation service provider, EC never ceases to make advances in all aspects of project management and quality assurance. About EC Innovations
