DriversNow.com Goes Live; New Site Matches Drivers With Part-Time Job Opportunities

PINE BROOK, NJ--(Marketwire - September 24, 2009) - DriversNow.com is a new web site designed to provide a vital transportation industry service -- matching drivers looking for supplemental income with a steady stream of part-time job opportunities for virtually any type of transportation specialty. Users sign up and establish driver profiles with details on their experience, capabilities, schedule, territory, and preferences. The site then sends them information on available jobs that match their profile.

Both companies and individuals can post jobs. Companies can even farm out extra work to other companies -- drivers with their own vehicles, who sign up on DriversNow.com as owner/operators.

DriversNow.com follows the model of other social media sites. It enables both drivers and job posters to provide feedback and ratings on matched job experience, in order to provide useful insight to other users.

The DriversNow platform is designed for maximum ease of use and flexibility. In addition, the fee structure is kept low to encourage widespread usage. It is free for drivers to sign up, apply for jobs, and receive offers. The only expense is $39.99 for a recommended professional background check that helps job posters evaluate candidates.

It is also free for companies and individuals to post jobs. A small convenience fee of $9.99 is charged when the job poster extends an offer and the driver accepts. Drivers with their own vehicles who sign up as owner/operators can do so for free for the first three months; the subsequent cost is $59.95 per month.

A longer range goal of DriversNow.com is to encourage companies to move more of their business operations online, simplifying scheduling and improving efficiencies.
