Shiftgig named one of 50 Providers to Watch" by Spend Matters"

List highlights organizations that push the envelope for procurement professionals

Chicago, Ill., May 26, 2017 — Shiftgig, the mobile platform that connects businesses with vetted, hourly workers, was recently named by Spend Matters as one of “50 Providers to Watch.”

Nominations to the list are based on independent interviews and briefings conducted by the organization’s analyst team. According to the Spend Matters website, the “50 Providers to Watch” list “shines a light on exciting newcomers who are pushing the envelope.”

Shiftgig was recognized in the category of “Contingent Workforce,” a group Spend Matters just added to their list in 2016. According to Eddie Lou, Shiftgig CEO and co-founder, the recognition is high praise for his organization.

“We are thrilled to be honored as a company to watch by Spend Matters,” Lou said. “Our team is working hard to provide a unique staffing solution that will help to better serve procurement and supply chain professionals, and provide both time and cost efficiencies when it comes to the hourly, on-demand workforce.”

Since 2013, Spend Matters has created “50 Providers to Watch” and “50 Providers to Know.” According to their website, the companies named to the 50/50 lists are, “the result of intense debate, discussion and refinement among all Spend Matters analysts, and reflect our unbiased, independent view of the organizations you should know and watch.”

Jason Busch, founder and head of strategy at Spend Matters, said narrowing the list down to 50 providers is proving more challenging year after year.

“It’s difficult — and getting even more so — to make Spend Matters’ 50/50 lists, and we’re thrilled Shiftgig made it onto the 2017 Spend Matters 50 to Watch list,” said Busch. “This year saw new coverage areas and increased competition among providers in existing segments. Shiftgig earned a deserved spot as one of the procurement providers worth watching in 2017.”
