Remote is a robust and modern platform specialized in HR, payroll, and benefits for, as their name suggests, remote-first teams.
Remote fully owns local legal entities in all the countries they cover. Since they have no intermediaries to deal with, they’re able to offer more flexibility and speed at very interesting costs.
Their platform is a globally-distributed HR hub where you can process payroll, perform salary simulations, onboard new team members, manage benefits, and take care of most of the administrative tasks that come with having a distributed team.
Remote also offers:
Like with most international payroll companies, implementing Remote’s software will vary depending on your team structure (contractor / employee mix) and countries of operation. A thing worth mentioning, however, is that they’re all about prioritizing the employee experience, trying to set up the solution correctly so that it’s a great experience for every team member, regardless of where they live.
Remote offers personalized, 24/7 support from a dedicated team of HR pros who’ll do their best to get to know you and your team. Support requests are done through their software itself or email.
Security-wise, Remote uses AWS as their cloud provider, thus inheriting compliance with industry standards such as SOC 1,2, & 3; ISO 27001/27017/27018, and PCI-DSS. They also back up data daily and are GDPR-compliant.
Remote can integrate with a wide variety of products, such as HRIS, ERP, expense management software, and time & attendance systems.
Remote has a startups program, offering a 50% discount on the first employee for one full year, and 2 months free for any employees that are onboarded during the first year, plus free contractor management.
Remote has four plans. “Contractors” lets you manage and pay global contract workers for free; you only pay for payment processing fees. Then, they have their “Global Employment” plan, which starts at $299 per employee per month. For the other two plans, “Payroll & Benefits” and “Global Employment Plus”, they offer customized pricing.
