IRVINE, Calif., May 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ShiftPixy, Inc. (NASDAQ:PIXY), a disruptive workforce engagement platform provider, will be an exhibitor at the 2018 National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show taking place May 19-22 in Chicago.
The NRA Show is the largest annual gathering of the restaurant, foodservice and hospitality industries in the US with over 2,300 companies exhibiting this year. The 2018 show will be held at the McCormick Place in Chicago, and ShiftPixy will be located in booth #11117.
ShiftPixy’s disruptive employment model is poised to revolutionize how the restaurant industry hires and manages its workforce. The Gig Economy’s mainstream adoption has caused much of the part-time labor force to leave the standard workplace in favor of gig platforms that provide the desired flexibility. By leveraging the Gig Economy concept and focusing on companies who rely on part-time labor, ShiftPixy’s ecosystem and mobile platform have created a solution that allows operators to retain a dedicated workforce while achieving desired growth and scalability.
While many restaurants feel obligated to work with third-party delivery platforms, these partnerships are not without downsides. Not only do they cut into restaurants' profits, but operators also surrender brand ownership and control. ShiftPixy is the solution to third-party delivery by helping lower delivery costs and enabling restaurants to use their own team members to self-deliver their brand intended customer experience, while also alleviating the operators of the compliance, management and insurance issues that are imperative to delivery.
“We’re thrilled to be exhibiting at the NRA Show this year alongside some of the largest and most innovative brands in the country,” says Scott Absher, CEO of ShiftPixy. “Our platform has the ability to transform how restaurants manage their part-time workforce, allowing operators to devote more time on their business and customers, and less time on administrative employment tasks.”
Harnessing the Gig Economy concept, ShiftPixy matches employers seeking part-time employees or 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 attendance at NRA follows recent announcements and growth including its ‘micro-metering’ approach to incremental payment transactions and related insurance coverages based on real-time use and exposures, as well as the introduction of a private, centralized blockchain ledger to record and track critical human capital validation. Last month, they also welcomed delivery services logistics company, Zion Delivery Service, as a client into their ecosystem, highlighting its value across sectors. This partnership will allow Zion Delivery Service to streamline its recruiting and scheduling demands and empower the company to scale and grow its work with Amazon Logistics.
Note of Clarification
