Otta's take on PayFit

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

PayFit is one of the fastest growing SaaS startups in Europe and the largest HR administration platform in France. PayFit is revolutionising HR software by automating payroll and simplifying HR management for SMEs. The company's aim is to support the digital transformation of SME's Human Resources through a reliable SaaS solution that offers a unique experience to its users.

PayFit leverages its own coding language to customise its software quickly to each market, so that their customers can easily process payslips, request holidays and manage their expenses. Most importantly, its solutions are made to be used by anyone without an accounting background or a grounding in local laws, the product promises to do all that heavy lifting for its users.

Payfit has had no trouble securing institutional funding as the company has had no problems with revenue. In fact, Payfit is yet to have a year without revenue increase since its inception. Payfit's 2022 funding round will be used to diversify its suite of products and partner with other companies to improve its customer service.

Total funding - $465.2m
