IRVINE, Calif., May 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ShiftPixy, Inc. (NASDAQ:PIXY), a disruptive workforce engagement platform provider, today announced the opening of its Chicago location. ShiftPixy’s fast-growing client demand continues to drive the Company’s expanding national footprint. This announcement follows recent office openings in Orlando and Austin earlier this year.
“Recently participating in the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago confirmed for us how the city is a natural fit for ShiftPixy,” stated Scott Absher, CEO of ShiftPixy. “The city has a dominant food and hospitality scene, so we’re excited to work with some of the leading fast casual operators in the market. Opening an office in Chicago is also a perfect gateway for us to tap into the rest of the Midwest.”
ShiftPixy’s innovative employment model and sophisticated technology platform for industries driven by part-time labor, such as restaurant and retail operators, has been quickly embraced as a solution to high turnover. Restaurant and retail operators are experiencing historically high turnover due to the growing competition from the Gig Economy, which is attracting a lot of the part-time workforce. Many of these operators also feel obligated to partner with these Gig Economy platforms for the purpose of third-party delivery offerings. Unfortunately, these partnerships sever control of the brand and customer experience, and force operators to pay a premium. ShiftPixy’s cutting-edge platform is in the midst of releasing its driver management layer, which allows operators to compete against those gig platforms and self-deliver a brand-intended experience to consumers at a lower cost than other third-party deliverers.
Harnessing the Gig Economy concept, ShiftPixy matches employers seeking part-time employees, including delivery drivers, with qualified workers. Unlike others in the Gig Economy, ShiftPixy embraces employer status of the workforce, offering employment related benefits and protections, all while handling administrative and compliance burdens for the operators.
