How does it work?

Can someone please explain how these companies help you find a residency spot during the scramble period because I thought that once the list of unfilled spots is released, those spots are filled on that same day by 4pm.
So how do these companies work in getting you in soo fast?
And, do IMGs stand a chance during the scramble, or do most of the unfilled spots go to the unmatched AMGs?

Thank you!
