HURDLR – TOP 10 FINANCIAL APP ON THE APPLE APP STORE & GOOGLE PLAY ACQUIRES DIRECT SELLING INDEPENDENT BUSINESS OWNERS APP – DEDUCTR
New Hurdlr Platform is Now Available to Deductr's 300,000 Users in the Direct Selling Industry
(WASHINGTON, D.C.—AUGUST 5, 2019) Leading business expense and mileage tracking app for independent contractors and business owners, Hurdlr, acquires Deductr, the self-employed tax savings app for direct selling independent business owners (IBOs), effective immediately. The company has already started rolling out its new Hurdlr Enterprise platform to clients like Team National, Primerica and Market America that seek to help their IBOs achieve greater financial success.
Hurdlr is a mobile first solution for independent contractors and business owners that quickly captured a large percentage of Uber drivers and Airbnb hosts, before expanding to real estate agents, and now direct selling distributors.
According to John Fleming, former publisher of Direct Selling News and co-author of Ultimate Gig, “The direct selling industry is the original form of gig work. Therefore, it is fitting Hurdlr, a company founded to support independent gig economy workers, has acquired Deductr.”
Within a few months, the migration of existing Deductr clients to Hurdlr's platform will be complete. Kelly Thayer, head of direct sales for Deductr, and now Hurdlr said, "After quietly working together as partners the beginning of this year to successfully launch Team National and Elepreneurs with record adoption, many industry leading clients are now taking note of the strategic value we're delivering to them in better IBO retention and benefits."
"We're helping top direct sales companies offer a benefit that helps their IBOs increase their own profits which has led to retention and production gains for our clients. It's a win-win, and we're excited to partner with more direct selling companies going forward," said Raj Bhaskar, co-founder and CEO of Hurdlr.
In the last three years, Hurdlr has tracked $8 billion in finances and saved its users $300 million in taxes. It has over 10,000 reviews in Apple's App Store and Google Play, with a 4.6 star average. A quick scan of reviews shows that customers give the highest marks to Hurdlr’s customer service and support, which is rare and uncommon for an app.
