Automating Payroll with RemoteTeam and your favorite time tracking application.

For the many remote companies that pay hourly, use the services of freelancers or contractors, then paying according to the number of hours worked is the ideal option. The trouble is, many companies suffer trying to automate the entire process. One, these companies have to use a payroll provider separately. Two, they find it difficult to syncing this with time tracking apps.

RemoteTeam’s platform solves this very problem by making sure that our payroll service is linked with your favorite time tracking app – DeskTime, Toggl, Harvest, etc.

Once this is done, your employees’ tracked time is recorded on the RemoteTeam platform.

At the end of the month, you can run your payroll – and RemoteTeam’s platform will automatically calculate the number of hours worked for the month/period, and with the hourly rate that you’re offering your employees or freelancers – the amount to be paid will automatically be determined.

If they’re permanent employees, freelancers, or consultants, you can use RemoteTeam’s platform to automate this entire process – so everyone gets their due payment every time the payroll is processed.

Great automation ecosystem that allows you to make bulk payments to employees and freelancers around the world without any cumbersome process.

A payroll system that’s compliant with the legal systems of your employees’ country.
