Gig Economy

With “gig economy” services often requiring the user/worker to download a mobile application and make use of their own mobile data it is posing a barrier to entry for lots of qualified workers. This is preventing expansion in key markets. mokanix allows a “gig economy” service provider to alleviate this barrier by allowing them to offer controllable mobile data integrated into their application.

The Client & The Problem

In key expansion markets mobile data costs are a barrier to workers signing up. This has a negative impact on the “gig economy” service provider as they suffer from a lack of sign up with regards to workers. This in turn can result in poor service to end users. A “gig economy” service provider would never be able to issue it’s workers with a SIM to use for only their application as it is likely to be abused and their is no way easily lock down that SIM.
