Why Attend


Independent workers prefer gigs to permanent jobs

The jobs are moving from permanent to flex or gig work across multiple industries. Traditional solutions for planning, assigning, tracking and verifying work are unable to keep up!


On-demand labor companies do not have live tracking capabilities

Most companies providing on-demand labor want to improve performance, but do not use live location as a part of tracking service orders or automating check-ins to job sites.


Tech teams want to improve on-time performance

Companies who leverage on-demand labor optimize their tech stack to improve on time performance, this includes building mobile apps with map views and arrival notifications.
