The AllWork app pinpoints needs for beauty talent.
AllWork is taking a page from Uber’s playbook and is looking to connect beauty brands and retailers with the right sales talent through a new app.
“For many retailers, creating an experience and touching consumers is a way to win at retail and give customers a reason to come into their stores,” said Glenn Laumeister, chief executive officer of AllWork, a platform that helps find and manage in-store retail talent.
Based on promising results from the existing AllWork platform, the company is taking its service to the next step with this month’s rollout of a mobile app. Not only does the mobile app provide access to talent when and where it is needed, it is a mobile management tool for all aspects of managing the beauty business.
Having a mobile app is key for Millennials who are glued to their phones, but also want flexible work schedules. They can work when they want and be notified faster than by e-mail or phone.
“We’ve found a large need in the retail industry for companies to optimize their labor spend in the same way they’ve implemented technology to optimize their supply chain, marketing and other business functions,” Laumeister said.
