WorkHint provides companies access to three main dashboards; 1. a primary admin dashboard for the matchmaker 2. a demands dashboard for demand network viewing lists of supplies, send requests, and work with them; and 3. a supply dashboard to receive requests and deliver projects or tasks. The onboarding process involves an invitation link to onboard the users, a messaging system for communicating, a video call facility with easy booking and scheduling.

Recent statistics reveal only around 3% established global companies adopt an effective platform strategy and this has caused many large companies to struggle during the current Covid situation. There is a huge market to be tapped and WorkHint has great opportunities ahead to bridge that gap. The new platform can help enterprises implement a multi-sided platform model for business functions at economical costs, manage efficient remote working and facilitate communication between a huge number of users.
Founded in 2015, by CEO and co-founder Mahmood AlAbbas and co-founder and CTO, Hrant Abelyan, WorkHint launched as a marketplace platform for SME’s at a time when the model for two-sided network was very popular. The platform was to connect SMEs with independent management consultants who are alumni of big firms and reduce management consultancy services costs. Since then the product has been regularly enhanced with minimal spending on marketing by using the network effect concept. The projects have attracted several leading consultants to work with WorkHint.
