Learn how Good Monday quickly got on board with Pento for their new UK operations.
In January 2020, Good Monday started its expansion into the UK market. The finance function of the company is based in Copenhagen and they were looking for the simplest solution to run payroll for their UK-based employees.
These were their top challenges:
Alex Nazaruk, Good Monday’s UK Country Manager says: “It was a new challenge for our finance team. Previously we’ve only had employees in Denmark and were running payroll with a local, quite automated solution. When we first looked at the UK payroll market we were surprised there weren’t more sophisticated solutions out there. Most companies seem to rely on external payroll providers, but we’re used to running payroll through software in Denmark so we wanted something similar for the UK. Luckily we heard about Pento just at the time of our decision.”
Good Monday is the leading workspace management platform created in the belief that all companies deserve the best office services powered by local providers, with all communication, planning, quoting and invoicing made simple and easy.
Founded in 2018 in Copenhagen, Denmark, Good Monday has raised more than £5 million, serving more than 160 customers and now rapidly expanding into the UK market.
Good Monday started their UK team with just a few employees. Pento helped them import all necessary employee and company information. They simply connected to HMRC and their pension provider within Pento and were ready to start running payroll.
Good Monday’s finance team has now been using Pento for the past few months. Here’s the Pento features that make it possible to run a smooth payroll process:
Good Monday is scaling their UK team and its payroll process without any hiccups on Pento:
Alex Nazaruk from Good Monday added: “Pento has been really helpful for us. We aim to spend our time on high-level tasks that can make a substantial impact to the success of our company and not be bogged down by manual tasks. That’s exactly what Pento enables us: we only have to care about changing the earnings data each month. All the other small tasks like dealing with the pension provider, payslips, HMRC are taken care of by Pento. I highly recommend Pento to every UK finance team that wants to focus their efforts on important finance decisions and not be dealing with sending spreadsheets back and forth with external payroll providers.”
