PHOENIX, AZ – August 25, 2021 – Openforce, the leading software technology platform for managing commercial relationships between contracting companies and their 1099 independent contractor (IC) workforce, today announced its partnership with Robinson Oil Corporation (ROC) as part of its contractor benefits program. The Openforce benefits program offers exclusive savings on essential tools and services such as business services, health and wellness benefits, retail shopping and more to their over 50,000 independent contractor customers.
“Fuel is obviously one of the largest expenses for independent contractor drivers. With the costs fluctuating throughout the country, we felt it was important to add a fuel savings benefit to help make running their own small businesses a little more affordable. Beyond the discounts, Robinson Oil Corporation provides incredible customer service which is a critical component for us when we’re considering how these partnerships will impact our members,” said Wendy Greenland, CEO of Openforce.
Independent contractors utilizing this benefit will have access to over 75,000 fueling stations nationwide. ROC also provides an online fleet fuel management portal for easier, real-time receipt management and accounting, as well as security features.
“As a fourth-generation, family-owned company, we truly believe that growth only comes by providing maximum value to our customers”, said Debi Kee Biggers, Commercial Fueling Sales Manager of Robinson Oil Corporation. “We are ecstatic about this new partnership as it is evident Openforce operates under that same belief. Working together to make life as an independent contractor a little easier and more affordable is a win for everybody.”
Through Openforce’s contractor benefits program, contracting companies typically experience 30% higher driver retention when compared to the industry average. This is because each benefit within the program is specifically designed to keep 1099 workers engaged long-term and thrive as independent business owners.
The mission of Openforce is to simplify everything related to independent contractor management and empower the world to work without limits. In addition to their contractor benefits program, Openforce’s technology platform also delivers powerful recruiting, onboarding, settlement, compliance and risk mitigation including active driver MVR monitoring and safety education solutions. Each solution is designed to empower contracting companies and 1099 contractors alike to work under a smarter independent contractor workforce model.
