PHOENIX, AZ – October 25, 2022 – Openforce, the leading software platform for managing payments and commercial relationships between contracting companies and their 1099 independent contractor (IC) workforces, today announced its partnership with OTR Solutions, the transportation industry’s leading financial services company.
Transportation companies often struggle to receive prompt payment from their retail customers, leaving them financially stretched and often unable to pay ICs on time. The partnership with OTR allows Openforce qualified clients to receive funds in advance of payment from their retail clients, eliminating this financial burden while providing reliable payments to ICs.
Wendy Greenland, CEO of Openforce, spoke about how partnering with OTR Solutions will benefit their clients. “Openforce exists because many companies rely on independent contractors to keep up with demands or expand their services. It’s our job to keep a pulse on their business challenges and offer solutions for them. When we heard that some of our transportation clients aren’t receiving payment from their retail customers until upwards of 30-45 days after completion, we were excited to partner with OTR Solutions to help bridge that gap in cash flow.”
Clayton Griffin, EVP and Chief Strategy Officer of OTR Solutions, spoke about their recent partnership with Openforce. “As a leading resource for working capital, we are thrilled to partner with Openforce. Our companies have similar missions in providing exceptional value to our clients when utilizing our resources to help them grow their businesses. We respect Openforce’s position as a technology leader for the transportation industry and look forward to offering this critical benefit to their clients.”
