Our client set an ambitious goal - to create a better future for gig economy workers. Gig-workers usually face a range of challenges, including information asymmetry, lack of access to safe credit systems, managing with different apps’ payment cycle and many more.
Given these challenges, our client is determined to empower gig workers and make their daily lives less difficult. As they remained steadfast in their mission, Plavno stepped in as a reliable partner in the field of development.
Challenges & solutions
Gig workers face difficulties in accessing a consistent flow of job opportunities that match their skills and location, leading to income instability and job uncertainty.
Plavno solution is a geolocation based notifications system. Workers can view daily app payments in particular locations. For instance, the app is connected to airports and can notify about incoming planes, leading to significant profits. Moreover, the app sends warnings about weather deterioration in the area.
The lack of intrinsic motivation, combined with the absence of direct interactions and a sense of belonging to the organization, has led to a decline in gig workers' enthusiasm.
To address the issue of low gig worker motivation, Plavno implemented a comprehensive incentive system, which allows users to take part in quests sponsored by the gig apps they are working with.
Agile methodology forms the cornerstone of our work philosophy. Through a seamless blend of innovative practices, including regular demos, comprehensive progress tracking, and a unique pay structure based on hours invested, we've constructed a workflow that ensures optimal outcomes and client satisfaction.
An app automatically tracks users’ gig work history. It allows them to compare data from different work apps and see which service earns them the most for their time.
Visualization of total and average earnings, tracking of the amount of online hours and see the rank within a country or region.
Easily record your work shifts. Monitor the total time, distance traveled, and fuel expenses per kilometer and per gig. Start or finish your shift in a single click.
Stay on top of your fuel, repairs, rentals, partner fees, and any other expenses. Quickly compare your earnings against these costs to determine your net income.
It is possible to access information on how much applications are paying in your area on a given day as well as receive weather alerts.
To make this goal a reality, we helped our client build a gig-workers app. This app quickly became well-known, reaching over 500 cities in 40 countries and available in 12 languages. In less than 4 years, the app has connected over half a million job seekers with apps like Uber, Airbnb, Upwork, and more.
