In financial services, Gigster is collaborating on a portfolio of
disruptive applications including automated compliance and onboarding
for an innovative bank with an international clientele. “We’re excited
to have Gigster as a strategic partner as we look to bring a
game-changing, completely compliant and streamlined digital experience
to our customers,” says Private Investment Bank Chairman Carlos Molina.
“Accelerating our onboarding process is a core part of our mission to
open access to global banking and private banking services.”
In healthcare, Gigster is collaborating with GlaxoSmithKline to leverage
artificial intelligence in key applications, including one that analyzes
sentiment to provide insights from consumer focus groups. “Gigster has
partnered with us to solve some of our AI and machine learning
challenges by managing project teams of hard-to-find talent,” says
Rajvir Madan, VP of Digital, Data/Analytics and Innovation, Consumer
Healthcare Tech. “With their liquid resourcing model, they were able to
assemble exactly the teams we needed incredibly quickly to deliver on
our business objectives.”
In accounting software, Gigster worked with Canopy
Tax, a cloud-based platform for tax professionals, to create a
Learning Management System that enables users to receive continuing
education credits online. “Gigster delivered what we needed, not just
what we told them to do, and helped us understand the level of detail
required,” says Jordan Ray, Canopy Chief Revenue Officer.
To support enterprise customers, Gigster has formed a far-reaching
alliance with DoIT International, Google’s largest global reseller
partner. The deal ensures that Gigster customers can scale projects
quickly as distributed systems in the cloud. “Gigster and DoIT
International provide customers with an end-to-end solution for
designing, building and running applications on the Google Cloud
Platform,” says Gigster CEO Chris Keene.
Yoav Toussia-Cohen, DoIT’s CEO, praised the alliance. “With Gigster’s
expertise in building applications that drive business impact, and
DoIT’s engineering support, we are the perfect team to drive digital
transformation in the cloud,” he says.
To bolster its enterprise market focus, Gigster also announced that
three new executives have joined the company.
“I am delighted to welcome Jennifer
Dimas, Judy Kopa and Ellis Ishaya to the team,” says Chris Keene.
“Each of them brings experience scaling enterprise software businesses
well past $100 million in annual revenue. They deepen our bench with
years of marketing expertise, financial and technical know-how and
award-winning customer experience.”
