Gigwalk, a mobile work marketplace that pairs businesses with workforces, announced a new suite of mobile work tools designed to help companies manage and scale local workforces, create mobile work groups, communicate with workers in the field, and manage projects more efficiently. Gigwalk technology provides retailers with better control over local job postings, searching for potential employees, hiring local team members, enhancing field communications and interacting with employees seamlessly at any time.
Specifically, the new Gigwalk mobile workforce management tools allow retailers to:
• Create mobile work groups: Retailers can better maintain a network of contacts and local employees, and post jobs to their groups, the broad Gigwalk network, or both. The Mobile Work Groups feature also gives businesses total control over who can view and apply for jobs.
• Communicate with workers in real time: A new instant messaging feature provides businesses with an outlet to communicate directly with workers in the field to answer questions, provide guidance and share tips, anytime and anywhere.
• Give workers necessary tools to complete tasks and give updates: By utilizing tools such as surveys, notepads and photo libraries, employees can provide constant updates to reaffirm tasks are being completed in a timely fashion.
Current Gigwalk clients include BMW, Chegg, eBay, Microsoft and TomTom.
