It's The Uber For FM Staffing – Ezitracker Collaborates with Broadstone on Temp Staff App

EziAdvance

With a plan to deliver a contingent workforce into the FM supply sector, workforce management software company Ezitracker has partnered with Broadstone, a tech company that provides ‘labour as a service’ via an App.

 

Automated Solution

 

Broadstone focus their temporary staffing solution within the security, FM and cleaning sectors. It allows workers to find flexible temporary work opportunities with large corporates operating in traditional, regulated industries.

The Broadstone platform uses data and automation to solve complex tasks that large traditional labour providers handle on a day-to-day basis. Key tasks such as payroll management, background checking and license checking, company-worker matching and performance management are automated for both companies and employees seeking permanent and temporary contracts.

 

Uber for FM Jobs

 

The solution will integrate with Ezitracker’s workforce management technology solution portfolio to allow customers to simply push shifts that cannot be filled by permanent staff, through to the Broadstone community.

A pool of screened workers will be matched and then scheduled into the Ezitracker platform - for the first time providing transparency and control over a company’s temporary staff.

Christian Berenger, Managing Director of Workforce Management at Ezitracker likens the new app to Uber, highlighting the much-needed flexibility this innovation delivers employers:

 

“Broadstone’s app connects workers and employers, bringing them together to deliver a truly agile workforce, based upon customer demand and available shifts. Jobs can be broadcast to a large community of available workers who can then apply for open positions that match their needs, availability and skillsets – it’s the Uber for the facilities management sector!”

Tom Pickersgill, Co-Founder & CEO, Broadstone said: “Our ‘Labour-as-a-Service’ staffing platform allows job seekers to find fair and flexible temporary work opportunities with large corporates working in traditional, regulated industries such as security, cleaning and catering."

 

Big change

 

Pickersgill continued: "How companies find and engage their workforce is changing fast, with temporary workers forming 20-30% of most large companies’ workforces within the next three to five years. We’re challenging the traditional method of temporary staffing much like FinTech companies are challenging traditional banking.

Ezitracker’s enviable client base in facilities management allows us to provide a service to those that potentially need it most, and forms a key part of our strategy to deliver temporary staffing in a better way.”

 

Picture: Broadstone also offers a solution to enable workers to instantly draw-down on their pay to provide increased control and flexibility to the employee. Branded ‘EziAdvance’ this functionality neatly feeds into Ezitracker’s EziHub platform.
