SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April. 10, 2012 -- Gigwalk today announced a new suite of mobile work tools to help companies manage their local work. Whether it’s auditing products, gathering new market data, or providing on-the-ground IT support, businesses often need to quickly scale their workforce to complete projects in communities across the country. Historically this has required finding, hiring, training, and managing short-term, local workers using decades-old methods. Beginning today, businesses can use Gigwalk’s technology to more easily find and manage qualified workers to support projects of all sizes.
“One of the hardest, and most important, parts of our business is managing feet on the street. Chegg has a presence at hundreds of colleges and universities all over the country. Gigwalk gives us the technology to very easily mobilize and manage our local brand ambassadors to help us stay connected with students,” said Justin Miller, product manager, Chegg.
“When we launched almost a year ago, our goal was simple: use mobile technology to connect companies with professionals who can complete local jobs. Since then, we’ve grown a mobile workforce that has completed over 180,000 jobs across the country for small startups to Fortune 500 customers,” said Ariel Seidman, co-founder and chief executive officer, Gigwalk. “Today, we’re making it even easier for businesses of all sizes to recruit and manage their own local workforce.”
With Gigwalk’s new suite of mobile work tools, businesses can:
“Gigwalk helps us test our mobile payments app in multiple locations across the U.S. in-the-moment and in real-time,” said Kevin McKeand, vice president of sales, Tabbedout. “The latest enhancements to Gigwalk will only make it faster and simpler for a startup like ours to quickly find new beta testers for our app. What I love the most is that we're helping people all over the United States find extra cash in this economy while helping Tabbedout do field research.”
