Case Study: Staffing the Rememory iPhone app project for Timewyse

Case Study: Staffing the Rememory iPhone app project for Timewyse

How we got 100% satisfaction on our new ‘app’ rollout with IT help we can count on

Growing up fast!

Children grow up too fast!Ca

Aaaah memories… sweet dreams really are made of them.

That’s certainly true when it comes to your children. Nothing gives parents greater pleasure than looking back… or having a “rememory.” Children grow up so fast!

Capturing those moments quickly… and for all time, needed to be made easy. Now it is.

Rememory is the name of the new application. Timewyse is the start-up bringing it to the world.

Recording your children’s greatest moments. Having those recordings available to you anywhere and any time! Rememory makes it easy. Kick starting those pleasant memories all over again for you, with just a few simple clicks on the web or your smartphone.

But before Rememory could be offered to you (the public) it had to be approved by a board of directors for production.

Two Big Challenges

Keith Beckley, Timewyse President, faced two big challenges getting to the production step:

Their in-house team did not have the skill sets needed for this particular project.

This was a pilot project; so permanent staff were not necessary for proof of concept.

Where would you start?

Agencies call companies like Timewyse all the time. Most recruiters call over a specific candidate. But when you’re looking for a crack team to make things happen quickly…

Here’s what Beckley had to say:

“Before choosing these very important staffers, I’d considered other agencies… but someone in my network referred me to Stafflink.”

“My choice?”

Stafflink.

“Let me explain — we got approval on the demo project by the board of directors for Timewyse. Then we needed permanent help. Stafflink was there with the assist for that too. Permanent tech staff for the full application.”

“Stafflink came through for me there, too… finding the right skill sets matched with the right people to come on board permanently.”

Now, when Keith has a new position to fill, he goes to Stafflink first and sees what they have for him. Like any good businessman, he’s always prepared to go elsewhere if necessary. But Beckley says he doesn’t bother using any other recruiters now. No need.

What was it about Stafflink that impressed you the most Keith?

“Within a couple of days, Stafflink would provide me with multiple candidates to be interviewed. One or two were acceptable in every group of candidates provided.”

“Ryan, my contact – is incredibly personable, and really genuine. Walks the walk. Takes the time and trouble to ensure I’m meeting correct candidates. Presents them really well. Follows up. Doesn’t pressure.”

“Ryan’s filled over 10 positions for me over the last two years… and presented me with multiple exceptional candidates… making it much easier to choose the right person!”

“By the way… Stafflink is consistently able to provide multiple candidates to fit the bill. You always feel comfortable making your pick.”

“The process of hiring new staff has uncertainty and anxiety attached to it. When you have some great multiple choices in candidates that all goes away. You’re left with clarity. The decision becomes much easier. Less stress all around.”

“It may sound corny going on about Ryan, since that’s how the job is supposed to be handled, but honestly, you don’t often find service like that in the real world.”

Keith didn’t hesitate when asked for a recommendation:

Stafflink came through for us in a big way!

Case Study: Stafflink helps Metavera replace key IT staff in one week

Case Study: Stafflink helps Metavera replace key IT staff in one week

How did this global car-sharing company save thousands of dollars … and a week’s worth of headaches?

Metavera - Transportation Technology to Drive Your Business

What do you get when you mash together public transit systems with sustainable transportation, and then serve it all up online?

Metavera. Car sharing since 2000.

Let’s face it. Living in a heavily populated area, public transit is cheap and convenient, compared to car ownership.

Young people these days are paying ever-higher rates for gas and insurance. The average price of gas in the general Toronto area this past summer, for instance, was about $1.34 a litre, hitting $1.42 by end of summer driving season …

Expensive. Even for working adults.

Reduced job prospects and high debt loads right out of college, have many young people choosing to opt out of owning a car. A car that would come in mighty handy when you need to attend a close friend’s wedding … at a quaint country inn, a couple of hundred miles away.

Car sharing is the solution — giving you cost savings AND convenience!

Case Study: Time is Money, canadian dollar and clock

Metavera once spent over 75 hours finding a single hire, only to have that person quit after 6 weeks.

Metavera installs and maintains global systems to deliver reservations, membership and fleet management, peer-to-peer car sharing, and automated billing.

Naturally, Metavera needs the BEST staff possible to run those systems. That only makes good sense, both for productivity AND cost savings.

But, much like trying to find the proverbial “needle-in-a-haystack,” finding the right team player can be tough.

Metavera once spent over 75 hours finding a single hire, only to have that person quit after 6 weeks.

Why I called Stafflink …

After in-depth interviews with four other staffing firms — I chose Stafflink. 2 Reasons: time and money … They did not disappoint. Within one week Stafflink had a re-hire in place, allowing us to remain focused on our core competencies. As you can imagine, our total savings were thousands of dollars.

Tony Simopoulos, Metavera’s Founder and President

With no staffing issues to worry about, Metavera can continue to do what they do best — closing car sharing deals around the globe.
