Pioneering the Future of Work: Ogram x Abhi Partnership Announcement

Monday, April 15, 2024

In a strategic move that underscores our commitment to innovation and workforce empowerment, Ogram has entered into a groundbreaking partnership with Abhi, a leading fintech innovator. This collaboration is set to redefine the gig economy in the UAE and beyond, ensuring that our valued workers - the OGs - receive their hard-earned money with unprecedented speed and efficiency. Every OG will now have the option to withdraw their earnings early, rather than wait until the next pay-day.

A Leap Forward in Gig Economy Payments

Ogram, in collaboration with Abhi, is introducing a new feature that allows our workforce to access their earnings within 72 hours of completing a shift, in exchange for a small transaction fee. This initiative not only symbolizes our dedication to the well-being and satisfaction of our OGs, but also represents a significant enhancement in operational efficiency and exceptional customer service.

Given the unpredictable nature of gig work, we understand the critical need for immediate financial rewards in the gig economy. Many gig workers live paycheck to paycheck, and struggle with managing expenses as they wait for pay-day. Faster payouts empower workers to take control over their finances, to better manage their expenses, and also provides a compelling reason to find work through Ogram. By addressing these needs, we're not just improving a process; we're positively impacting lives.

Take Sarah, for example, an OG who balances multiple gigs to support her family. When faced with an unexpected expense, like a home repair or medical bill, Sarah can swiftly access her earnings the moment she needs them, rather than wait until pay-day to receive her money. Faster payouts empower OGs like Sarah to cover bills on time and manage finances with more confidence. Sarah's story highlights the profound impact of this initiative, underscoring the importance of timely payouts for financial stability and peace of mind.

Shared Vision, Strengthened by Support

This partnership has been made possible by the shared vision and unwavering support of our mutual investor, Global Ventures. Their foresight in backing both Ogram and Abhi has laid the foundation for this synergistic collaboration, aimed at empowering the workforce of today for the economy of tomorrow.

For our esteemed clients, this development means even more reliable and motivated staff, as our OGs enjoy enhanced job satisfaction and financial security. For our valued investors, including Global Ventures, this partnership is a testament to our commitment to innovation, scalability, and the creation of sustainable value in the gig economy.

As we embark on this exciting new chapter, we look forward to exploring the vast potential of this partnership and its positive impact on our community, clients, and the gig economy at large. We are immensely grateful for your continued support and belief in our vision. Together, we are not just witnessing the evolution of the workforce; we are actively shaping it.
