The client required industry expertise to design and create a cross-platform end-to-end labor workforce management tool. The application needed to organize, schedule, and communicate with contingent, project-based mobile talent and automatically fulfill roles based on the talent’s registration profile.
A major challenge was designing a database and UI with pre-defined and dynamic event roles, creating corresponding registration and communication templates, and matching talent to those roles. Additional challenges were rate calculations with multiple variables, load balancing, and application performance.
