The Review
Feedback summary: 

The tool has been well received by users and the internal team alike. Steadfast Media’s approach to the work, incorporating constant availability and high skill, has made for a smooth engagement. Their ongoing support is very valued, leading to continued work. 

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the managing director of Smart Labor Management, a workforce management company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Steadfast Media?

We were trying to build a simplified workforce management tool instead of licensing out other products, so we hired Steadfast Media to help.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Steadfast Media is developing a web application from scratch for us. They’re using PHP for this. We’ve asked for a full suite of services to be implemented in the product, ranging from talent acquisition, time tracking, invoicing and more. This tool is intended to help companies manage their temporary labor process, so this should manage every stage from start to finish.

What is the team composition?

We work with 3–4 people from their team, including a developer, project manager, analyst, and architect. 

How did you come to work with Steadfast Media?

I followed a trusted referral and met with Michael (CEO, Steadfast Media). He was an extremely intelligent person and understood the concept fairly quickly, so I felt comfortable using the team. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in May 2019 and our engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

Our clients have been very receptive to the product. Our small team has also positively received their work. 

How did Steadfast Media perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re very available throughout the project. If anything comes up, Michael is always receptive to helping us. Even if the issue is outside of their scope of work, we can rely on them. Any time of way possible to communicate, we’ve done it: fax, emails, calls. They’re good at managing the work. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their availability and technology expertise are great—it’s amazing to see what they’ve done with our concept. Looking at where we started versus where we are now with the tool, it’s great to see what they’ve done throughout the process. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

Right now, there’s nothing I can think of. I’m new to the product-side of projects, so it’s been a good learning experience working with them. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Spend time communicating and setting timelines with their team.
