Otta's take on Check

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

The rise of the internet has resulted in massive improvements and innovations in the world of financial services. In today's landscape, there are many ways to send and receive money, yet the archaic technology powering payroll systems does not reflect this change.

Check develops modern infrastructure to enable companies to embed payroll solutions directly within industry software. This is achieved through a range of customizable API tools that can be embedded directly within internal time-tracking systems, preventing the need for convoluted spreadsheets, external databases, and unnecessary software.

With good funding at its back, Check is now focussed on scaling its success in vertical and workforce SaaS, as well as tackling new segments across online staffing, talent marketplaces, and more.

Total funding - $120m
