Opolis Offering Xero Accounting Solutions to Employment Commons Members

The partnership will give members more access to financial insights and payroll solutions.

Today we’re happy to share that we’ve chosen Xero, the global small business platform, as our preferred cloud accounting solution provider.

By providing access to Xero’s financial insights and payroll solutions, Opolis is enabling its Commons members to manage their back office functions and run their businesses more easily and efficiently. Having a real-time view of financial health and data allows Commons members to spend less time on the books and more time focused on other aspects of their businesses.

The Employment Commons was designed to support self-employed workers, and members, which include freelancers, independent contractors, entrepreneurs, gig workers, and sole-practitioners, can access employment benefits that have traditionally been reserved for corporate employees. Members can experience the freedom and flexibility that comes along with being an independent worker, while maintaining access to affordable and high-quality benefits that suit their needs such as health care, retirement savings, life and disability insurance, payroll, back-office services and more.

“When it comes to being an independent worker, whether you’re a solopreneur or freelancer, you need simple back-office solutions. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Xero to bring our Employment Commons members client accounting services with Xero to help them take the headaches out of administering their small businesses. With Opolis, payroll, employment and now accounting is set it and forget it,” said John Paller, Executive Steward at Opolis. “Xero has such a strong focus on customer support, which was a major decision in welcoming them to the Employment Commons Coalition. We’re looking forward to offering their services to our members.”

Xero provides Opolis members with a flexible, cloud-based accounting platform to run their business from anywhere in real-time. Business owners can get an up-to-date view of their financial position, spend less time finding and entering information, and have the necessary financial information on hand to grow their business.

“We’ve seen a surge of new small businesses starting out amid the COVID-19 pandemic as freelancers and gig workers take advantage of evolving market dynamics and opportunities to transform a side hustle into a main hustle,” said Ben Richmond, US Country Manager at Xero. “By teaming up with Opolis, we’re proud to help new business owners and self-employed workers set up their digital environment from the start with Xero, where they can gain real-time access to their business financials, better manage cash flow and make future plans to grow.”
