“With Ibotta’s remote part-time workforce growing so rapidly, we needed a technology partner to manage and support that level of growth,” said Benjamin Seidl, Senior Manager, Workforce Optimization, Ibotta. “Leveraging NICE‘s solutions will help us engage our workforce, forecast and manage employee growth.
