Read how Primer's team easily runs payroll completely on their own.
Primer is a fresh new tech startup that got started just a few months ago. The founders are technologists - not finance people. Naturally, they were a bit concerned running payroll on their own with Pento.
So they had two main challenges when approaching Pento:
Paul Anthony, Primer’s co-founder says: “Primer is a fast-growing, modern fintech focusing on consolidation of payments services for e-commerce merchants. My co-founder and I previously worked at PayPal, and recognise how many finance processes remain stuck in the past. We're always aiming to use the simplest, most advanced finance solutions on the market."
"We cannot spend time chasing external payroll service providers and managing the complexity and administrative burden associated with this. Pento caught our attention on the premise that everyone can and should be able to run payroll seamlessly. This aligns with our own vision of how modern finance tools should work.”
Primer is a new, fast-growing fintech company that consolidates payments services through a unified API and checkout integration.
Founded in January 2020, Primer has already raised more than £3.8 million aiming for rapid growth in the next couple of years.
Because Primer started their journey on Pento as a very small new company, the onboarding took only a few minutes.
Once they had their employee data in Pento, they simply established a connection to HMRC and their pension provider, and completed a quick KYB check. And that was it. They were then able to run payroll the very next day.
Primer has now been running payroll with Pento for the past four months. Here are the main benefits of the solution:
Primer has achieved the most important goals of running payroll with Pento:
Paul Anthony, Primer’s co-founder added: “Our experience with Pento has been purely positive. We quickly gained the confidence to run payroll on our own and the Pento customer success team has been there in an instant whenever we've had a payroll or product related question. It’s a no-brainer for modern scale-ups, and I would highly recommend it to anyone struggling with payroll. It’s how payroll should be.”
Pento is constantly adding more functionality to its product. Soon Primer's employees will be able to get a preview of their next payroll to further avoid any possible errors, making the whole payroll experience even more stress-free for the admins.
