PHOENIX, AZ – June 9, 2022 – Openforce, the leading software platform for managing commercial relationships between contracting companies and their 1099 independent contractor (IC) workforces, today announced that its IC Insure technology offering has won three Stevie Awards in the 20th Annual American Business Awards. IC Insure was awarded wins in the Technical Innovation of the Year, in the Emerging Technology and in the Insurance Solution categories.

IC Insure was praised by judges for its innovation in streamlining the complex process of insuring independent contractors. One judge stated, “IC Insure’s ability to change how insurance brokers and agents manage insurance policies and exposures, including usage-based insurance, with their independent contractor insureds was impressive. Openforce’s end-to-end technology platform simplifies and streamlines the insurance administration process, offering insurance brokers and agents one platform to manage their tasks. The highlighted details, including the platform’s growth to over 5,000 insureds, were remarkable.”

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations– public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small – operating in the U.S. are eligible to submit nominations. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala ceremony at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Monday, June 13.

“We are very excited to have been recognized multiple times by the American Business Awards for our new IC Insure offering. There is a real need to service the gig economy as it grows and requires insurance products that make sense,” said Wendy Greenland, CEO of Openforce. “To receive multiple awards for our IC Insure product is continued validation of what we are doing in the market.”

More than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.
