This artificially intelligent operations manager is designed to make the life of hourly workers less complicated. Populace is a startup and AI platform that uses text messaging to manage growth planning, payment and scheduling for hourly employees such as tutors, personal trainers and dog walkers. Given increasing numbers of young people are going into business for themselves or choosing freelance work, this mobile solution could help significantly with organization.

The hourly workers management system gives users a single phone number to use for all their client communications and a shareable link with payment and scheduling information.

The startup is currently accepting beta testers. The service is free for now, but is launching officially in May 2016.
