The UK has recently seen the launch of a new online automated management platform for businesses that utilize independent workers, aiding in streamlining the management process and reducing paperwork.

Headquartered in Amsterdam, Flime is already a successful international business, which has enjoyed significant success with its innovative platform in Russia, and now has its sights firmly set on growing market share throughout Western Europe in the lucrative and rapidly expanding gig economy.
