At Worksmith, we want to help brands adapt to the new world of retail.
Great store experience is the new industry standard. We understand that this is a HUGE task with many moving parts and pieces. It involves everything from facilities maintenance to visual merchandising, event production, garment care, and more.
For many brands, the painful process of coordinating with service providers across each of their store locations creates a barrier to delivering an awesome store experience.
In 2015, we set out to create a solution: a software-enabled marketplace that makes the hard work of finding, scheduling, managing, and paying local service providers easy. StoreXM was born.
Our platform transforms the way retailers collaborate with local service providers. Every month, we fulfill thousands of work orders for brands across the US and Canada. From plumbing to tailoring to bartending, Worksmith helps brands find reliable partners in each of the markets they serve.
