Push notifications are becoming ubiquitous as we travel around the Internet. These are the little “opt-in” messages on your browser or phone that ask to use your location (or not) to send you notifications you might be interested in. StafQuik wants to bring them to staffing firms’ job-sites and has raised a pre-seed round of $500K to help them get started. Targeting staffing firms, it’s positioned as a way to automate high volumes of contact with candidates for engagement purposes. Seems like a feature in a recruitment marketing or staffing ATS/CRM platform to us.
