Remote team suppliers have too many software dependencies and information silos. Remote team consumers lack team trust and project transparency. These inefficiencies lead to missed deadlines, budget overruns, and poorly executed projects wasting time and money.
Sprinter was built to fix that.
Sprinter is a Web3 platform that is part talent network and part technology platform, wrapped in a layer of trust.
The talent network consists of vetted, member only teams and individuals in the technology service space. Those teams could consist of a software engineers, a social media designers, technical product leads, and more more types of tech providers. Members exchange their time and skill in exchange for deliverables and payment. Unlike other talent networks that focus on a freelance model, Sprinter focuses on providing full teams to projects to provide more uniformity in delivery. Membership in Sprinter is structured as a DAO, which allows members a say so in how the ecosystem is governed and enhanced over time.
Unique to Sprinter, the proprietary software platform provides a technology layer for members to deliver the work they were hired to complete. Built into the platform are standard project management tools, a time tracking system, sprint payment protocol, team chat, and unified project notes. Engineered for simplicity and standardization, other dynamic features in the platform are designed with the intent of making sure projects stay on task and on time.
Trust is established through the use of a utility token native to the sprinter platform. The token serves multiple uses. The first allows for the use of smart contracts to establish an escrow protocol between suppliers and consumers. This escrow system eliminates scope creep, inadequate service, and payment risk, each of which can erode the integrity of a project. The second use acts as a governance mechanism for network members to shape the direction for the platform and community. Members are unified as token holders and incentivized to collaborate together to build the best ecosystem possible.
For the consumers, it provides a trusted place for businesses owners to access talent. No more 30 quotes from teams that aren’t qualified. Member teams are incentivized to work collaboratively and provide top level service. It’s “a rising tides lifts all boats” mentality. Further, the software enables consumers to get a real grasp of their project deliverables. Features such as reporting, chat, and notes, give them direct access to their team without learning multiple systems or tools. Most importantly, the use of smart contracts allow for payments to be escrowed on the blockchain, giving the consumer peace of mind that their payments are delivered when the work is successfully completed.
For the suppliers, Sprinter provides a standardized way of working with remote clients. Suppliers can simplify their in-house software dependencies. The software allows for unified communication and information between all stakeholders on a project. Features built into the platform help to eliminate scope creep and help suppliers get paid what they deserve.
Further, the power of the membership allows for suppliers to offload unused talent to other member projects or source additional resources to scale up on a project when needed. Because the network benefits from all parties being successful, there is no race to the bottom on pricing, making it fair for everyone.So how does Sprinter solve the problems that many face when working with remote teams?
