Laboring Through the Web

Labor Ready, Inc., which provides temporary manual labor through the Web has launched its online ordering system to service the entire United States.

The Tacoma-based company is one of the first staffing companies to offer access to temporary labor services via the web.

Labor Ready now operates 853 dispatch offices in all 50 states, Canada, Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom.

The company's website enables customers to register online, receive quotes, place orders, download invoices and generate reports on the status of their account.

"Online ordering is now a reality for all of our U.S. customers," says Todd Welstad, Labor Ready's Chief Information Officer. "Unlike most staffing websites, we provide the customer with a quote for each order as well as reports and other tools to track the order. All transactions are backed up with a full service team."
