Eezy Kauppa is a family of two apps that helps grocery stores all over Finland recruit temporary staff when the need arises – and the workers to find available shifts that suits their schedule.

We have been involved with the project in all its phases, from service design to development.

Service Design

Our co-operation with Ekstraajat began in 2016. Based on the client's meticulous understanding of the field, we identified the most crucial features for the app and left the others on the cutting room table. Focusing on essentials has remained our design philosophy throughout the lifecycle of the service.


    Design work has taken place in close co-operation with the client. Following MVP philosophy, the first versons of the apps were designed to include only the most critical features. With every new release, we have included new functionalities and updates based on testing and feedback.

Software Development

    The shopkeeper app has been created with Xamarin, and the more recently completed employee app with React Native. Both enable straightforward maintenance and agile update process on the two mobile platforms.

Continuous Improvement

    In a service like Eezy, it is essential for the development ideas to be based on actual user needs. By continuously utilising user comments, we have been been able to make the service better with each iteration.

Seamless communication

Eezy Kauppa consists of two applications: one is designed the shopkeepers and the other for employees.

Using their app, the shopkeepers can announce free shifts. They are in turn immediately visible for the employees in that area. Both announcing and accepting the shifts can be done in just a few taps.

For the employees, the system offers a very flexible way of working. The shopkeepers, on the other hand, benefit from being able to quickly recruit temporary staff in tricky situations – even within an hour or two.

Several shops, one interface

Even if they have shops in several locations, adding new shifts with the app is still a breeze.

Contacting the employees is quick and easy. What's more, each one of them has gone through Eezy's own interview process. This makes sure that their reliability is extremely high.

Should they encounter any issues with the service, the app features a chat function that connects the shopkeepers directly to Eezy.

Varied work shifts that fit your schedule

Employees can use the app to browse free shifts in their area. A calendar view makes it easy for them to check previously accepted shifts, and add holiday periods when they don't want to receive new offers.

Each shift comes with detailed instructions and information to help the employees get started. After completing the shift, the employees can also give feedback on the experience.

Mobile as a tool
in modern work culture

There are many life situations where a more flexible way of working makes sense. Likewise, many stores often struggle dealing with sick leaves and such.

A long and fruitful co-operation with the client, combined with fast reacting to user feedback, has resulted in a one-of-a-kind service that's beneficial to all involved parties.
