The Sortlist service provider

With more than 53,600 service providers in over 150 countries, Sortlist offers an extensive range of options from which you’re sure to find the perfect match.

We have a service provider for every need; expertise, size, specialized industry, budget, and location.

This number may seem overwhelming, but with the personalized guidance from advisors as well as our AI algorithm, we filter out the ones that are perfect for you and provide you with a top 4 list.

The algorithm

The purpose of the algorithm is to help you filter through the service providers that fit certain criteria of your project brief.

It evaluates providers based on certain factors and assigns them a ranking score. These factors include:

  1. Whether or not the provider is specialized in the expertise of your brief (e.g. graphic design, online advertising etc.)

  2. If they speak at least one of the languages you have requested

  3. They are located in a limited radius of your preferred location (if specified)

  4. They have previous works in your budget range

Role of the advisor

Although seeking help from your advisor is optional, they can greatly help you in selecting the best service provider for your project.

Our advisors know our agencies well. They are in constant contact with them and know which fit best for each project.

They are there to provide you with personalized help by providing you with a list of service providers that they believe could be a good match, in addition to those generated by the algorithm.

But not only that, they are also there to guide you through any part of the process, from clarifying any doubts about the brief, to booking calls with service providers or helping you make the final choice.

Remember that you can always book a call with them via a link at the bottom of any e-mail you receive from Sortlist and that this entire service is free.

Your list of service providers

Your list of service providers is unique to your project. The list only displays providers that meet the criteria you have specified for the project.

As mentioned before, your complete list of providers will be selected by our advisors with the help of our AI algorithm.

The service providers chosen have been directly contacted by the advisor themselves and presented with the project. Providers can either accept or reject the project, but must pay a fee to be considered a candidate. This ensures that only the providers who are truly interested and capable of delivering will accept the project.

This approach saves you a significant amount of time, as you can be confident that the service providers on the list are well-suited to the task.

They will be introduced to you personally via e-mail with a personalized message and their application for you to take a look at.
