IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ShiftPixy, Inc. (NASDAQ: PIXY), a disruptive workforce engagement platform provider, is launching a National Accounts Campaign to help fast food and fast casual restaurant operators across the country avoid brand damage and reduce the 30% fees typically charged by third-party deliverers.
ShiftPixy’s highly disruptive proposition enables restaurants to self-deliver to customers while still harnessing the many benefits of the Gig Economy, all while ensuring the end consumer has the brand intended experience from start to finish.
“We are now at a point in the business where our growth among clients and our sophisticated user features have real value to the large multi-unit operators of the major fast food and fast casual restaurant brands across the country. Today we are launching our National Accounts Team which will focus on building relationships and working with national brands interested in leveraging our top notch technology and offerings,” said Scott Absher, Co-Founder and CEO of ShiftPixy.
ShiftPixy’s National Accounts Team will deploy from three locations: Irvine to cover the Western US accounts, Austin to drive Midwest accounts, and New York for Eastern US accounts.
Mr. Absher continued, “We are working with numerous fast food and fast casual national brands and their underlying franchises to transform how they employ their part-time workforce and revolutionize their ability to self-deliver efficiently and effectively, which is contributing to our rapid growth as a Company. We’ve reached the point in our business where we can start deploying these offerings at scale to further support our larger clients.”
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.
ShiftPixy’s disruptive technology includes a ‘micro-metering’ approach to incremental payment transactions and related insurance coverages based on real-time use and exposures, a private, centralized blockchain ledger to record and track critical human capital validation, and IBM’s Watson artificial intelligence engine to achieve a uniquely personal experience for workers and employers alike. Earlier this summer, the company welcomed delivery services logistics company, Zion Delivery Service, as a client into their ecosystem, highlighting its real world value across sectors.
Note of Clarification
To be clear, ShiftPixy has never, does not now and will never use its blockchain technology in any form of cryptocurrency or cryptocurrency related application.
