Online PR News – 12-June-2012 – Arkansas – El Dorado, Arkansas (June 12, 2012)- The Traveling Contractor™, an innovative web platform connecting mobile workers with comfortable housing options while on the road, recently enhanced their site’s optimization by leveraging the power of local search.

Millions of workers travel across the country each and every year for employment opportunities; traveling nurses, contractors heading to aid residents of a local area following a national disaster, tradesmen working in chemical plants, refinery shut-down workers, migrant farmers, railroad workers, and seasonal help for popular tourist destinations, just to name a few.

Picture this: these mobile workers are headed to their next assignment on unfamiliar roads, they pull into a local motel/hotel/truck park right off the main highway, only to discover that there aren’t any rooms or spaces available for the night/week/month; now what!? There are often rooms available in the surrounding area, but the traveling contractors don’t have a method of locating this information. Unfortunately, this situation is all too commonplace, and frustrating to both the worker and the establishment that has vacancies.

“The Traveling Contractor™ was created to solve these unique challenges facing today’s mobile workforce. Through our rapidly growing platform, valuable connections can be made between traveling contractors and local establishments willing and able to offer their rooms, dining discounts and entertainment services,” said the web platform’s founder.
