We love working with start ups and businesses that are genuinely solving real world business problems. The latest such start up to reach out to Flexbox Digital was Melbourne based, Hiya Mate. Hiya Mate is a mobile marketplace specialised platform designed to facilitate short to mid-term leasing or temporary hire of staff. Aimed at the construction industry, it promote companies to tailor their staff size and specialisation daily, weekly or monthly, depending on fluctuating business demands. Flexbox Digital designed and developed marketplace apps for Hiya Mate.
