Frequently asked questions
- Who can register?
To become a member of Linqit, you should either be a registered company with a FO-number, or an easy-entrepreneur using billing services such as UKKO, Eezy or similar. You become a member by registering the company in Linqit’s web app. The first two months are always free. This gives you the opportunity to test Linqit and its functions free of charge. When the test period expires, you decide whether you want to continue your membership or not.
- How long is the binding time?
You bind to the membership for 6 months at a time. To make your membership as simple as possible, your membership is automatically renewed if you do not choose to cancel it yourself. If you want to cancel your membership, you should do so at least 14 days before the six-month period expires. If you choose to terminate the membership, the company’s profile will be removed from Linqit when the six-month period expires (or earlier if you wish).
- How do I keep my profile alive?
You are responsible for your own profile. Our goal is to be an effective network that creates synergies between companies. All members contribute to this by ensuring that the information in their own profile is up to date and relevant. Apart from the fact that you occasionally update your availability via the calendar function in Linqit, the membership does not require any other measures from you after you have created your profile. In order for the service to work as smoothly as possible, we hope that you answer all the job requests you receive via Linqit, regardless of whether you think the offer seems interesting or if you choose to decline.
- How do I cancel my membership?
If you wish to terminate your membership on Linqit, this must be done at least 14 days before the 6-month period expires. If you choose to terminate the membership, the company’s profile will be removed from Linqit when the 6-month period expires. You can of course request that your company profile be removed at any time if you wish. However, paid membership fees are not refundable.
- Is my information in safe hands?
Yes, with us you are safe. Linqit is for registered members only. Your profile and your information are shared only with companies that are looking for work, not with others who offer services. As members with access to the sales service, you have the opportunity to see which companies are members of Linqit, but you cannot see the details in their profile. However, companies that are registered with access to both the buy and sell function have the opportunity to see all members’ profiles. The information you register is used only in the search processes that are part of the Linqit service. Prices and availability information is not available to others, but is used to enable the system to find the resources that best meet the purchasing company’s criteria. Linqit does not sell your information to external parties.
- How is the information stored?
- What does it cost to become a member?
We want all companies to be able to afford using Linqit and have therefore tried to make the membership as beneficial as possible. The membership fee for Linqit varies depending on how big your company is. It is slightly lower for companies that only want to sell services than for companies that want access to both the buy and sell functions. Here you will find the price information for the different membership categories.
- How does Linqit's search algorithms work?
The search function in Linqit is governed by the criteria that the buyer defines when you create your search profile. The system looks for and presents all resources that meet (and exceed) the criteria that the buyer defines. The search button at the bottom right of the screen allows the buyer to monitor how the selection of different criteria affects the number of resources that match the criteria. When the buyer clicks on the search button, the system retrieves all the resources that meet the criteria and lists them according to a predetermined order. Resources are in the first hand listed according to the feedback (rating) they’ve received from their previous customers. The resources are then listed in alphabetical order. It is not possible to buy visibility in Linqit’s search function.
- We are Linqit members, but aren’t getting any job offers - what do we do now?
In your Linqit profile you can see how many times you have been shown in different searches. If you find that you do not show up in enough searches or that you are not contacted even though you show up in searches, you should consider if your Linqit profile needs updating. Among other things, it may be worthwhile to review the short presentation text and ensure that it describes your business and your skills as best as possible. Similarly, it may be worthwhile to review the competencies you have registered and how you have priced your services and to check that the information in the calendar function is up to date.
- We do not find any suitable resources. What could be the problem?
When you as a buyer create a search profile in Linqit, it is important that you consider what skills the resource really needs to have. Linqit only lists the resources that match the search criteria you have defined, so the higher the competency requirements you set, the fewer hits you are likely to get. It may also be worthwhile to consider the scope of the assignment. Do you really need a resource that works full time for a short time or maybe it works just as well if the resource works 75% for a little longer? Such small adjustments in the search criteria can have a great impact on how many hits you get on a particular search. The search button at the bottom right of the screen allows you to monitor how your selection of different criteria affects the number of resources that match the criteria. When you click on the search button, the system pulls up all the resources that meet the criteria and lists them according to a predetermined order.
- Who is responsible for the proper execution of assignments?
Linqit is a service that helps companies sell and buy services from one another. At Linqit, you provide the tools needed for companies to find each other and get an initial contact. The buyer and seller agree on the terms of the contract themselves. Since both parties are entrepreneurs, the procurement corresponds to a contract with a subcontractor where the subcontractor is responsible for his own insurance and such arrangements. Since the procurement and contracting takes place directly between the buyer and the seller, Linqit cannot take responsibility for the contract terms and their compliance. Through the grading function, the client has the opportunity to provide feedback on the companies he hired via Linqit. Feedback is primarily given on services rendered, but can also be used, for example, if a seller does not respond to assignment requests.
