Quinyx boosts workplace management portfolio with Widget Brain deal

Quinyx has acquired Widget Brain to enhance its proposition by allowing organisations using its software to automate their labour optimisation process through Widget Brain’s artificial intelligence-driven technology.

Widget Brain’s service allows companies to balance different business objectives by fully automating the labour scheduling process, resulting in significant time and cost savings. The technology allows employers to create schedules that suit employees’ preferences, resulting in higher retention and engagement.

The acquisition will bring new brands, like Facilicom and Royal Vopak, to the existing Quinyx portfolio, which includes shared global customers like Domino’s Pizza and Wello. Widget Brain’s global team and offices will be integrated with Quinyx.

“After several years of partnering with Widget Brain, we saw the benefits of a deeper integration of the company’s disruptive and forefront technology with our own software solutions,” said Erik Fjellborg, Quinyx’s chief executive and founder. “AI and automation is the future for companies needing ROI across their workforce management process - this acquisition will catapult our product offering and accelerate our progress."

Joachim Arts, Widget Brain’s chief executive, added: “In Quinyx, we have found the perfect partner who is as passionate as we are about giving employees and employers the best schedules ever made.”
