Big News at Gigwalk!
Today we made a couple of exciting announcements.
The first is that Gigwalk’s A-list roster of customers is growing. Reckitt Benckiser is a major consumer goods company with hundreds of household products like Lysol, Easy Off, Woolite, Vicks and many more. They’re using Gigwalk to conduct on-location shopper interviews, and retail audits, which are helping them understand what drives sales.

Real Time is Right Now - Avoid Becoming Obsolete
Last week Gigwalk had a brief European adventure. One of our clients invited us to fly out and present Gigwalk’s mobile work technology to their executive team. I am happy to report that we had a pat-ourselves-on-the-back moment thanks in large part to a few great people using Gigwalk out in the field.
While presenting, I decided to give a live demo and used our standard self-service tool to launch a store Gig in North America while I was in Europe.
In minutes, field workers were applying through the Gigwalk mobile app. A few taps later and I was able to sort and choose the most qualified. Within 30 minutes I had directed a group of workers in the field to several locations where they started on the job.
The real-timeness – afforded only by smartphone mobility is what caught their eyes. I found myself speaking about the future of field work in a mobile world. All the while they watched as that future unfolded in real-time on a screen behind me.
Results delivered in real-time by qualified workers is just part of why mobile field work is the future
Workers arriving, tasks reviewed, question answered, results submitted – all streaming through the Gigwalk dashboard in real time – I was over 5,000 miles away, and yet with only passing effort, I had a bird’s-eye view; managing and directing multiple remote field teams that I had never met in-person.
In one corner: mobile-first, open, app-based, consumerized, slim, intelligent, self-organized marketplace.
In the other corner: PC-first, proprietary, legacy, enterprise-oriented, bloated, custom-built, top-down managed.
It’s time to choose sides – except we all already know the winner.
