Talent Powered Team — service for building and managing agile project teams of freelancers
Hey, here is Valya, CPO of Talent Powered Team project. Today I would like to share some useful information about how our project has combined the ability to find freelancers, work on collaborative projects together, manage tasks through the task tracker and use secure transaction in one digital workspace.
About Us and About You
The inability to create collaborative projects (according to Shieldgeo research), the issues with work organization (Buffer research) and the complexity of communication are just some of the inconveniences what exist on freelance market.
Tasks are monitored in task trackers, documents are attached to emails, operational issues with clients are solved in messengers, etc. So you have to work on different websites, with different tools, and it takes the bulk of the day to check all these services and updates. It is inconvenient both: for the one who assigned the task for the independent contractor, and for the independent contractor himself.
In addition, according to Buffer’s research, most part of distributed teams work in different time zones: nearly 60 percent of freelancers said their company works from two to five time zones. And with all of these conditions the quality of work is greatly affected.
How we solve problems
Our platform offers a new approach to the business engagement with independent contractors. The approach is based on the MWM principle: marketplace + workspace + management. What does this mean? The platform has all the tools to work with remote experts, including entire distributed teams.
No need to use 100500+ apps and tabs, all of them are on one platform:
- Find independent contractors (for customers), find projects (for independent contractors),
- Create projects for simultaneous work of several performers working as a team,
- Built-in task tracker to manage and control projects, distribute tasks between participants and monitor project progress,
- Secure Deal — all projects should be paid in advance,
- Built-in messenger,

- Keeping each project organized with the help of the task tracker.
- Ability to hire both individual contractors and teams to work on larger projects,
- Set tasks in projects and monitor their implementation using the task tracker,
- Guarantee of a qualitative result through a secure transaction (independent contractor receives money only in case of showing fruitful results)
- Secure payment from an individual and a legal entity to different countries with the possibility of obtaining documents.
Super short survey about remote work:
To sum up
To anticipate your thoughts: “There are plenty of freelance platforms like Upwork, Fiverr and Freelancer.com already! What’s your value? What makes you stand out?”Everything that could be done for freelancing is already done”.
I mean, We all know what’s been driving innovation for the last 30 years — it’s agile teams with horizontal interactions and a high level of trust within. And it’s a contradiction to everything freelancing is about.
Independent contractors are not trusted to work on large and non-trivial projects as a sole person is limited in capabilities to do it oneself. Only motivated people with diversified skills, united in flexible teams, can create additional value in a very short time. Enabling the teamwork in digital workspace is a factor what differentiates us from our freelance market solutions.
So, we want to provide new opportunities to companies and independent contractors to team up and work with each other with more trust, safety and higher efficiency.
