Specify your needs

Filling out the form is easy and takes only a few minutes. You can also "Book a meeting" and go through the questions together. The goal is to prepare the right specification for the tender.

Research

After we publish your Tender to the network, our Partner Vendors will apply and present their proposals along with candidates and their skills & expertise that match the role and technologies you're looking for.

Fees are already included in the rates that we will provide to clients. The Client will receive tender applicants' reports in 7 days from tender publish.

Meetings

As easy as it sounds, one week of screening is over and you can hire your new developer, team or find a new partner. You will have the chance to browse the candidates in accordance to your needs thanks to our cutting edge technology. The client compares proposals from our partner vendors, scores them, and initiates dialogues with the most appealing vendors - It's up to you, the client, to decide. We will help you to schedule a video call with all of the candidates that you would like to meet.

Tripartite contract

At the end of the process, the client chooses the vendor that will work on the assignment. A standard agreement is signed between the Client, Vendor & Nordics IO. The terms are the same for all and are in line with the European market standards.

Nordics IO will be adding a success commission fee to the monthly invoiced by us. A single invoice for everything, it's that simple.

Risk-free period

We make sure to start each engagement with a trial period of up to 14 days to make sure the Vendor will be a good fit for you. If you’re completely satisfied with the results, we’ll invoice you for the time and approve the contract. 

If you’re not satisfied and there is room for improvement from our side, you won’t be billed. From there, we can either part ways, or we can provide you with another expert who may be a better fit and with whom we will begin a second, no-risk trial.

Invoice & Payment

Monthly Invoicing from the Vendor to the Nordics IO. With success comission it will be forwarded to the client.

Monthly Payments are going from the Client to the Nordics IO. On the second day when payment is received, Nordics IO will pay to the Vendor.

Successful partnership

Nordics IO, an open ecosystem is only as strong as our network. We're happy to be bringing companies together because at the end of the day, it's all about people.
