As the IT industry continues to evolve and spread across country borders, the rush to hire trained, experienced sales and marketing professionals who thoroughly understand the space grows with it. In this vein, startup InterConnecta wants to help IT organizations engage top-notch business talent through its freelance online work platform.

Founded in 2009, InterConnecta makes it easy for IT product and service organizations to calculate costs, plan ahead, contract freelance sales and marketing professionals, and manage business campaigns in real time online.

While most online freelance platforms only offer forums for project collaboration and management, InterConnecta has developed a range of business development tools such as CRM, marketing automation, analytics, contacts lists, and templates that make it convenient and quick to create new marketing and sales campaigns. In this way, remote teams can more effectively and efficiently collaborate with one another to get work done faster.
