Posted on Posted in Press

Cost-effective, subscription-based platform helps independent talents to automate key go-to-market activities through seamless integration of marketing, work management, and payment tools, enabling them to earn money online or on-site, and build a more sustainable income.

SINGAPORE, April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ –  Almost two years in development, StageMetro, a go-to-market platform designed for independent talents, is officially launching on May 1st Labour Day to help this important community of Singapore workforce to build a sustainable income in a cost-effective manner.

Designed by independent talents, StageMetro is a subscription-based platform that aids talented individuals in offering a wide range of services to consumers and businesses in the flourishing gig economy in Singapore and other countries in the future. Through StageManager™, a powerful cloud-based web service, verified independent talents can set up online or location-based Menu or Event services, pre-define their work schedule, decide customer payment methods, send promotions to customers directly and more.

These services will be accessible to users through the StageMetro app that is available on Singapore’s Apple App Store and Google Play Store® beginning today. StageMetro app is a first-of-its-kind beautiful talent social marketplace which not only showcases talents on their own Stage but also incorporates a points-based career system rewarding talents for positive user endorsements, such as receiving good service rating or digital gifts.

StageMetro views skilled independent talents as an important segment of the workforce but with neglected needs. In fact, recent news reports indicate almost 10 percent of new graduates have chosen to be independent workers and workforce redundancy is at its highest since 2009 after the global financial crisis. On this important labour movement occasion, independent talents such as Jimmy Tan Tse Wei, a cinematographer offering wedding and corporate video services, finally have an easier and cost-effective way to pursue their passion and build a sustainable income on StageMetro.

“It’s a great relief to finally have the ability to market and offer my services easily. For example, I used to spend more than 50% of my time on marketing and securing payment. Now, I can spend that time attracting and servicing more customers, thereby increasing my income. To top it off, the platform’s service is available from only S$10 per month and does not charge expensive project-based fees for its services.” shared Jimmy Tan.
