Today, we have some game changing news that we have been dying to share with you. You may have already seen our press release, or maybe someone has called you to provide the scoop. In case you haven’t heard…

We have acquired PeopleMatter, a powerful cloud-based workforce management platform designed to fit the specific needs of the service industry. Together, we are going to turn everything about finding jobs, hiring employees and working in the hourly space upside down.

And we couldn’t be more thrilled!

First, here’s a little bit about them: PeopleMatter partners with more than 47,000 service industry locations. More than 6,000 businesses use their platform for hiring, growing and retaining talent. They have processed over 6.8 million applications and have over 550,000 users across North America. Named by CIO Review as one of the “Top 20 Most Promising HR Tech Solution Providers,” their applicant tracking and employee onboarding system are some of the most widely used in the service industry, particularly by medium and large businesses.

They’ve been around since 2009 with the mission of changing the way employees and employers interact in the workplace through service excellence, innovative technology and teamwork. By comparison, our mission (if you don’t already know) is to put people in the right-fit positions so they can maximize their potential and live more fulfilling lives. We have now combined our missions with one goal: to create instant and quality connections between hourly workers and hourly employers so that a job, or team member, can be secured in minutes.

The combination of offerings provide best-in-class solutions that scale from a single location to Fortune 500 businesses with thousands of locations and uniquely address the needs of both franchisor and franchisee.Together, with over half a million active employers and almost 10 million active workers each month, we represent the market-leading platform for the hospitality and retail sectors. We will be a one-stop-shop for finding job applicants, engaging those candidates to apply, hiring those candidates in minutes and scheduling them into their first shift.

We will turn the entire hourly HR technology industry on its head. All using some code, some elbow grease and a couple hundred million smartphones.
