IRVINE, California, August 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
ShiftPixy, Inc. (NASDAQ: PIXY) ("ShiftPixy"), a disruptive Gig Economy platform provider, announced that it has launched its shift worker mobile app in both the Android and IOS stores for immediate use by ShiftPixy team members in the field.
The new app has been designed to bridge the gap between providers of shift-based employment and employees looking for additional, hourly opportunities.
ShiftPixy's Co-Founder and CEO, Scott Absher, stated that "the mobile workforce revolution is in full swing. Today's launch starts our introduction and engagement process for shift workers who are now part of the ShiftPixy ecosystem. The ShiftPixy platform empowers employers to find fully vetted, onboarded and ready workers to fill needed shifts, while employees who have the time, desire and ability can now find new work opportunities with the best employers looking for their specific skills."
Absher continued, "Our society is moving towards an on-demand lifestyle from Netflix and Uber to GrubHub, and now ShiftPixy. Our current and growing employee base will be able to onboard themselves with ShiftPixy through the mobile app and begin to manage their personal work lives, giving them the freedom to work when they want, for how long they want, and even for whom they want-as long as the worksite employer is part of the ShiftPixy universe."
Mr. Absher went on to say that "this launch automates the connection between current ShiftPixy field staff to make the onboarding process very simple and paperless. This app is now an employee's secure personal gateway to manage their employee data, engage in interactive, real-time scheduling and connect to locally available shift opportunities."
ShiftPixy plans to roll out important engagement features over the coming weeks-all designed to significantly change the part-time labor market and tackle Gig Economy opportunities and challenges.
