Otta's take

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Payroll systems for the production industry are long outdated, with the vast majority of administration still being completed manually, in person, and on paper. This forces cast and crew members to loose many hours in unpaid work and drives up production costs.

Wrapbook's app helps cast and crew complete onboarding, submit timecards and track payments. It offers touch and face ID and helps users track various filings as they pass through the system. Its position as one of the country’s only entertainment-compliant companies of its kind has given it a strong head start in its field.

The company's product is used by well-known production companies such as CollegeHumor, Creative Blood and JN, and serves over 1,000 companies in total. In 2021, commitments from new and existing investors boosted Wrapbook’s valuation to $1 billion, earning it unicorn status. With this funding, it has continued to bolster its payroll platform and workforce to best support the needs of production companies.
