Our Challenge

Payroll is different for every type of business

Your customers love you for understanding and meeting their unique needs. But for payroll, they are saddled with generic 3rd-party payroll providers that miss the mark.

What’s worse, 3rd-party payroll vendors compete with you for time and budget — and they undermine your core differentiator: being the all-in-one platform for your customer.

Case Study

Homebase helps local businesses thrive with Homebase Payroll

Homebase helps over 100,000 of the busiest local businesses manage hourly employee hiring, onboarding, scheduling, timesheets, communication, and more. Payroll for hourly employees is complex and business owners are not experts. Businesses want to focus on serving their customers — not running payroll — but have been stuck with legacy tools built outside of their system of record. They spend hours importing employee data into hard-to-use ‘accounting-speak’ payroll tools that are inefficient and increase expenses.

Homebase Payroll was created to simplify paying hourly teams, with timesheets and full-service payroll all in one place. Leveraging Check’s embedded payroll API, Homebase built a seamless customer experience through a native payroll offering. They solved a huge headache for their customers and increased customer retention and lifetime value.

“We’ve always thought of payroll as a natural extension of our product, but prior to partnering with Check the complexity had made it a near-impossible product to build. We’re excited to work with Check to raise the bar for how business owners should be able to manage their companies — and pay their people.”
