Why Sprinter Matters

August 10, 2022

It’s never been more important to harness global productivity — and, in some ways, it’s also never been more difficult. The solution: a decentralized platform unlike any this world has seen before.

Key Takeaways:
  • 3 out of 4 businesses report talent shortage and difficulty in hiring, despite the fact that remote work and distributed technologies have made global talent more accessible than ever. 
  • Sprinter combines the project management of tools like Asana with the talent matching of job marketplaces like Upwork, connecting companies with pros to solve the talent supply chain challenge. 
  • It uses decentralization and Web3 tokens and NFTs to provide additional value for users, building a reward flywheel that organically attracts the best and the brightest to contract on the network that works for them.

Business isn’t a marathon — it’s a sprint. The companies that innovate survive. And those that don’t …?

The shift to remote work in recent years has provided the perfect example. Industry’s march is no longer measured in train whistles, but in Slack pings. Asana has replaced the sticky-noted chalkboard in marking our progress. Discord, our new water-cooler. 

Facing unprecedented times, those companies willing to pivot to fully distributed teams found a world’s worth of talent suddenly at their fingertips. Entire industries will never be the same. 

Yet for all the opportunities that remote work has opened for millions of companies and workers, it has also presented a historic challenge. Three of every four companies reported talent shortages and difficulty hiring in 2022, a 16-year high.

IT and Data roles topped the list for the most in-demand roles. But how could companies struggle with accessing tech talent when remote work and distributed workforce technologies were creating unprecedented global pipelines?

The reality is that most companies failed to capitalize on their newfound ability to reach highly knowledgeable workers anytime, anywhere, across the globe.

Sprinter exists to solve the talent supply chain challenge by giving companies the tools to seamlessly connect the projects they manage with the pros they need.

It does so by combining the project management flow of Asana with the talent matching capability of online job marketplaces like Upwork. 

What’s more, it uses decentralization to ensure the efficient, trusted, transparent, and streamlined execution of work.

Managing remote teams doesn’t have to be so difficult.

The traditional company structure is divided into disparate departments of in-house employees working together toward common goals. 

The remote work environment is messier though. It’s a complicated web of freelancers, contractors, consultants, and full-timers patching together their hours and efforts.

Data is the lifeblood of innovation, yet companies struggle to make sense of it while pumping each individual artery with more and more siloed information. 

What’s more, it’s easy for duplicative efforts to emerge across distributed teams, with each new software solution promising to solve a problem that’s suddenly sprouted three new heads.

It’s a challenge as confounding as all of these contradictory metaphors. 

Sprinter simplifies that process. Rather than separating the project management and talent search workflows, it combines the two with one founder-friendly software solution — keeping hiring, payments, and timelines all under one roof.

Imagine a world where you could place a project task on your company calendar and be rapidly matched with a number of talented Pros capable of quickly accomplishing that task.

Imagine the Sprinter network.

Brought to you by the power of decentralization.

The platform alone creates immense value for companies doing work on Sprinter. However, the network’s decentralized nature unlocks a litany of additional benefits for its users.

Using blockchain-enabled smart contracts, companies are able to lock their budget firmly into place while providing deeper oversight of how contractors are meeting their deliverable deadlines in real-time. 

The Sprinter platform’s microservices reduce knowledge gaps between core teams and their distributed collaborators, reducing information asymmetry and execution risk. Plus, it gives businesses an unimpeachable audit trail and fast, secure cross-payments.

Of course, all of that innovation would be useless without the talented humans actually doing the work. And thanks to its decentralized model, Sprinter is able to aggregate a global labor market of elite developers. 

Through the use of its $RUN token and membership NFTs, Sprinter is able to return value back to those users who do the most to build the network. The most talented Pros and Leads in the world are then naturally incentivized to bring even more of their collaborators and businesses onto the Sprinter network. 

That reward flywheel provides immense value to users, and to Sprinter, with the decentralized network effectively turning workers into owners and, eventually, those same owners into evangelists. 

As a result, more and more top tech talent join the network, making it even more valuable to the businesses who create projects and contract work on it. 

What must come next.

Companies are presented with a generational opportunity to tap into global talent markets from afar, thanks to the rise of distributed workforce and remote work technologies. 

That creates a world unimaginable even a decade ago, one where…

  • a brilliant developer from Kyiv,
  • a graphic designer from Johannesburg,
  • an account executive based in Toronto

… can work together asynchronously to quickly build a product or service sold to users in France, Finland, or anywhere else the sun sets. 

However, that promise will fail to materialize for both top companies and top talent if a product doesn’t exist to bring them together effectively and efficiently.

Sprinter exists to be that bridge. And the work is just beginning.
