Streamtime is project management software for the creative industry. If you have clients, manage jobs and have a team providing a service (to said clients), then Streamtime could be for you. But in a world where there seems to be a new project
management software business popping up almost everyday, how can a 14 year old business like Streamtime compete? By reinventing itself to rip-up the past, start again from scratch – and to build software that competes with the tools of the future.
Challenge: Streamtime had one goal – to be better. You see, Streamtime was software that needed to be installed and it was ageing by the day. It had suffered (like many other ‘mature’ software companies) from feature creep. Trying to satisfy requests
for bespoke functionality, plug-ins and reporting had created a tool that was hard to maintain and build upon.
We needed to: – Design a project management tool for the creative industry of today and the future – Address a much-maligned feature that’s been a source of pain for many a creative: $%*&ing timesheets – Understand the working practices of the modern company, and meet with the needs of the users. – Redesign an entire product in 3 months, to get it to market in 4 (ok, maybe 5) months. Solution: Welcome to a new Streamtime. Where to-do lists are the new timesheets. Where a behaviour that many people already practice, replaces a routine that many of us reviled. Every time you complete a task in the new Streamtime, a time entry is recorded on the job. No timesheet entry to be seen. Your to-do list is scheduled for you – by simply clicking a button. You can create a job, quickly and easily – the using a simple mechanism that replicates the simple spreadsheet calculator. Then, a click of a button turns that job plan into a quote. Another click, and it’s an invoice in Xero. Simple. The interface and all communications have also been completely revitalised.
