Ted and Becky Catino are Cincinnati natives who retired after 25 years of starting and growing a successful business. Recently, Ted and Becky have come out of retirement to start a mobile technology company called GigSmart. The Catinos founded GigSmart to meet two core community objectives:
1) GigSmart seeks to create a seamless, efficient, friendly employer/independent contractor marketplace that optimally matches employers seeking on-demand labor and individuals willing to provide it.
GigSmart is the mobile platform that gives businesses direct access to workers on demand. Businesses search by skill, check worker ratings, and staff the good ones, all using the app. GigSmart has made the process simple and efficient. When urgent, unexpected labor needs arise, GigSmart gives businesses immediate access to the workers they need.
The platform reduces the time businesses spend looking for qualified workers and even lets them mark their favorite on-demand workers for future contact.
From the moment a worker accepts a gig until the minute they complete it—GigSmart lets businesses track their location and pay them directly through the app. And at a 10% fee, businesses can do it all at the lowest fee in the industry for sourcing labor.
2) GigSmart seeks to develop an efficient system for charitable organizations to manage their volunteer needs while providing interested volunteers the ability to make themselves available.
It is the NO cost solution to managing a charity’s volunteer workforce. GigSmart gives charities the opportunity to manage their existing volunteer base, as well as givingcharities instant access to a new pool of volunteers.
GigSmart gives charities instant access to a pool of workers who are available to accept immediate volunteer requests. Whether a charity is one person or ten people short for an event, the app allows them to search for volunteers within seconds so they can be working within minutes. GigSmart gives charities instant access to students who need to earn service hours, retirees looking for ways to give back to the community, and families who want to volunteer with their kids.
This app is the way for businesses to source independent workers, charities to find available volunteers, individuals to select workers for jobs and services, and for workers to make extra money, gain experience, and volunteer.
It is the most efficient way to find and manage people when urgent and unexpected labor needs arise.
