SaaS payroll provider PaySauce is launching a new platform to allow the delivery of services beyond payroll.
A digital employment agreement tool, developed in partnership with Federated Farmers, will be the first app launched on the new platform.
PaySauce came to market as a conventional payroll software application and has built up a range of satellite features such as timesheets and costing.
The release of the Contract Builder signifies expansion of services into broader HR functionality and an additional revenue driver.
PaySauce CEO and co-founder Asantha Wijeyeratne said the decision was driven by the desire to offer constant improvement and an expanded feature set, without cluttering up the user experience.
“PaySauce is all about how software can change the way we work," he said. "The platform gives us the freedom to pursue that possibility.”
Graham Hill, general manager (commercial) at Federated Farmers, said he sees Contract Builder as a way to deliver smarter compliance solutions to agricultural employers.
“This industry-first development for digital contracts allows for simpler updates to all our farmers’ contracts, and ensures that they are always compliant," Hill said.
"We see this partnership with PaySauce as an integral part of our online development strategy here at Federated Farmers.”
Applications on the platform will be integrated horizontally, with employee details from the Federated Farmers Contract Builder automatically imported into payroll for PaySauce Payroll users.
The platform is designed to enable outside development and to host external applications, introducing new integrations in the process.
PaySauce listed on the NZX last December through a reverse listing
