The Lightbulb Moment
In December 2016, we moved over one third of a billion tonnes of retail stock from storage to shelf for some of the UK's largest retailers. It was a very busy Christmas.
Fundamental to the successful delivery was our self-built technology used for scheduling and managing our teams of flexible workers. Retail partners soon began conversations around having more access to the technology, and workers were raving about how well the system suited their needs.
The lightbulb turned on - we realised that we could develop the technology into a viable platform for flexible workers, companies that required skilled workers, and recruiters supplying flexible staff. We knew that if we pulled it off, our technology would put the flex into flexible working.
