Openforce, formerly CMS, was formed directly from the experience of our founders operating a company that utilized independent contractors. Frustrated by administrative inefficiencies and expanding legal constraints, the team set out to build a solution that would help companies do it right. Nearly 20 years later, entire industries are redefining conventional models of work that fall short on cost, efficiency, and meeting customer demand. Which is why from our technology platform to our superior services, we simplify everything IC to empower a world to work without limits.
