Building on the success of serving hundreds of thousands of independent contractors and companies, Openforce® publicly announced its new name with a renewed commitment to serving the rapidly growing on-demand economy.
“As the on-demand economy attracts more than 22.4 million consumers annually and $57.6 billion in spending, we are wholly focused on disrupting the expensive, slow, and unintended high-risk ways that companies have traditionally worked with independent labor,” said Drake Pruitt, CEO of Openforce. “The new brand reflects our evolution to a technology-driven company delivering software and services that reduce the cost to deploy, pay, and properly contract with independent contractors.”
Along with the continued expansion of our product portfolio, Openforce has invested in new talent to address growing customer demand with a professional that brings decades of expertise in software-as-a-service, transportation operations, third-party logistics, and business technology automation.
Leigh Ann Schneider joined the company in Phoenix as Senior Director of Business Development, where she will work on strategic account development with the company’s largest transportation prospects. She is a customer-focused sales leader with a track record of building long-term accounts and surpassing revenue targets. Most recently Leigh Ann excelled as Vice President of Direct Sales at GlobalTranz, a leading logistics company.
“Openforce is the greatest team competing in this industry, and the addition of Leigh Ann brings even more leadership, know-how, and service in support of our prospects, partners, and customers. We are thrilled to have her onboard,” Pruitt added.
Openforce is the leader in technology-driven services that reduce operating costs and mitigate risk for companies using independent contractors. Our cloud-based applications help companies and contractors alike achieve more sustainable, profitable growth by removing financial, operational, and compliance barriers to getting business done.
