GeoIntelligent Scheduling Technology Enhances Event Safety and Worker Experience at Premiere ATP/WTA Tennis Event
CINCINNATI (PRWEB) August 15, 2019
GigFlex LLC, the industry leader in geo-intelligent scheduling technology, announced today that the Western & Southern (W&S) Open is deploying the GigFlex mobile app to Marshals working at the 2019 ATP/WTA tennis tournament.
GigFlex provides Marshals (who are responsible for player security) with a mobile app that enables them to automatically check in and receive their daily rotations assignments directly on their Apple or Android based smartphone. The app also enables Marshals to receive alerts and notifications, adjust their schedules and communicate directly via the command center. The GigFlex administrator app enables the command center to track the location of each marshal on site and can quickly identify when a post is unmanned, or a Marshal is at a different location that that to which he/she has been assigned.
“The deployment of GigFlex is consistent with our commitment to ensuring a superior experience and the highest degree of safety to all patrons and players attending our event,” said Andre Silva, Tournament Director & CEO of the W&S Open. “Real-time location tracking of our workers enables our workforce administrators and schedulers to proactively ensure that each Marshal is always in the right location at the right time.”
“We are pleased to be the first major Tennis Tournament to deploy GigFlex,” added Mary Conner, Director of Volunteers at the W&S Open. “With GigFlex our volunteers can more easily adjust their schedules and quickly get answers to any question they may have regarding their duties. With the largest volunteer workforce of any major tennis tournament it makes sense that the W&S Open is deploying worker empowerment tools like GigFlex that can positively transform our volunteer experience.”
“We are pleased to work with the Western & Southern Open,” said Larry Schwartz, CEO, GigFlex. “This deployment reinforces our industry-unique value proposition for premiere global sporting events that seek to deliver a superior experience for their customers and their workers.”
