2 - Overview

ControlHub is a Slack App that allows you to simplify making a request to buy something (a product or a service), and send it through the company’s spending approval flow so it gets properly approved.

All requests that involve spending budget (outside of hiring employees or payroll related expenses) should be requested and approved on ControlHub. This includes:

  • Products from online vendors (i.e. Amazon) or traditional vendors that will invoice us
  • Services: Online Services (i.e. SaaS), traditional vendors that invoice
  • Contractors & Consultants
  • Off-site expenses (i.e. dinners or travel) or physical purchases that will require a plastic card

 

Yes. When needing any type of 1099-Contractor service, please use the option called “Vendor needs a PO and will send us an Invoice” (even if the contractor will not need a PO or send us an invoice).

We know it sounds weird, but this option will allow you to make your request properly while we build out our Contractor flow which is currently under construction)

If you have a Contract you will use with the 1099-contractor, please attach it when requested for a Quote or Supporting Document.
