ShiftPixy's Ecosystem to Enhance Delivery Capabilities that Extend the Gig Economy

IRVINE, California, April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

ShiftPixy, Inc. (NASDAQ: PIXY), a disruptive workforce engagement platform provider, has welcomed delivery services company Zion Delivery Service as a client into its ecosystem to help streamline its recruiting and scheduling demands. By taking over employer status of Zion Delivery W-2 delivery drivers, ShiftPixy will empower Zion Delivery to scale and grow its work with Amazon Logistics.

As Amazon and other logistics companies respond to the e-commerce delivery boom, they've partnered with local courier services to complete the "last mile delivery" to businesses and consumers. This growth has created a unique digital ecosystem where all parties rely on tech-driven solutions to increase efficiency and streamline communication. The ShiftPixy relationship enables Zion Delivery Service to become a leader in this space while showcasing the advantages of this employment model. Founded in 2004 and focusing on the Southern California market, Zion Delivery Service's rapid growth is due to this increased demand and is now able to expand its footprint by tapping into ShiftPixy's platform.

"As a 7-day-a-week operation, recruiting and retaining talent is critical in order to meet the demands of our partners and end customers," said Jeremy Pippen, President of Zion Delivery Service. "ShiftPixy provides a sophisticated tech-driven recruiting and scheduling platform that will allow us to focus on developing our business in line with the growth of our international partners such as Amazon Logistics."

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 benefits and protections, all while handling administrative and compliance burdens for the operators.

"Our leading-edge approach and underlying technology will empower Zion Delivery Service to manage its fast-growing delivery operation with greater ease and more efficiency," said Scott Absher, CEO of ShiftPixy. "The ShiftPixy driver management layer lets clients leverage the mobile engagement advantages of their Gig Economy competitors for connecting with employees. We're excited to liberate Jeremy and Zion Delivery Service to do what they do best and continue to expand their relationship with Amazon Logistics."

As the logistics industry continues to leverage sophisticated technology to scale and enhance efficiency, ShiftPixy is bringing that same mindset to revolutionize the sector's employment model. ShiftPixy's digital solution includes a private blockchain ledger to record and track critical human capital validation data, a sophisticated 'micro-metering' approach for financial and insurance transactions, and IBM's Watson artificial intelligence engine to achieve a uniquely personal experience for workers and employers alike.

Note of Clarification 

To be clear, ShiftPixy has never, does not now and will never use its blockchain technology in any form of cryptocurrency or cryptocurrency related application.
