BUILDING RESILIENCE, DRIVING OPPORTUNITY

The City has engaged a local technology provider, Bench On, to develop the Gold Coast Business Portal.

The GCB Portal is an automated resource sharing portal designed to help businesses manage and leverage capacity fluctuations.

The Portal aims to alleviate capacity fluctuations by matching businesses with surplus capacity (Contract Seekers) with those that need to
scale-up quickly (Support Seekers).

Using smart technology to connect businesses that are under capacity with other businesses that require their specific specialist services.
By contracting one of their employees out for a fixed timeframe, the contract seeker can maintain job security and steady revenue during slower periods, while the support seeker benefits from greater access to specialist resources during periods of higher demand.

Its free to sign-up and free to source support.

Operational peaks and troughs are part and parcel of modern business.

We believe there should be a quick and easy way to reallocate business resources as demand
changes, all while keeping jobs on the Gold Coast.
