UPSKLS acquires UK’s on-demand work platform Work Simplr: Know more



Last update:

UPSKLS, a Colorado-based on-demand work sourcing platform, announced on Tuesday that it has acquired UK-based Work Simplr Ltd, a startup that built a virtual internship hosting and management solution for the future of work. UPSKLS will now change its name to Work Simplr.

The combined entity aims to deliver an on-demand work platform to meet the needs of organisations to get repetitive mission-critical work done quickly, affordably, and accurately.

The company says it will fundamentally change how organisations get work done, improving productivity, operational agility, and quality, while reducing fixed costs or requiring specialised project management skills. 

“As the economy struggles with a continued shortage of qualified workers, it’s more important than ever that businesses find new ways to improve productivity by being able to launch new workstreams in a more efficient, on-demand model,” says Jodi McPherson, CEO of UPSKLS and now CEO of Work Simplr. 

“Work Simplr enables organisations to quickly and seamlessly launch new workstreams through our platform, leveraging a huge talent pool of students with workstream-specific skills. It’s a game changer for enhanced productivity and organisational agility,” adds McPherson.

The company empowers organisations to launch workstreams on-demand and without the hassles of staffing and project planning. Work Simplr claims to be  changing the nature of work, going beyond the limitations of archaic, ineffectual posting and matching tools. 

Shrevan Marath, former CEO of Work Simplr and current Chief Product Officer of the combined company, says, “Our proprietary project scoping algorithm, combined with the new data matching technology, make the Work Simplr platform the fastest and most efficient option to initiate and complete repetitive mission-critical, workstreams.” 

Marath continues, “Work Simplr is architecting an evolved data footprint for our students and workers, providing a robust personalised credential, defining who they are through what they’ve done professionally. In addition, our platform aligns the interests and capabilities of organisations with Work Simplr’s contingent workforce by matching qualified students to specific projects.”
