Who Is This Vendor Assessment For?

Key Findings & Highlights
Paycor was founded in 1990 as a payroll services company, initially delivering its services on licensed 3rd party software. In 1999 Paycor shifted away from this model, launching Perform Payroll, which set the foundation for its proprietary Paycor HCM platform it leverages exclusively to deliver its managed services offering.

Paycor expanded its regional payroll coverage and delivery capability throughout the U.S. by acquiring Pay Day of America in 2004 and later acquired Checkdate Solutions in 2006.

Today, Paycor's payroll technology and managed services offering supports ~42k clients throughout the U.S.

Paycor offers a fully managed payroll service as an extended add-on solution to complement its cloud payroll module, which is natively delivered within Paycor's HCM suite, which it leverages exclusively in the delivery of its payroll services.

While its HCM platform can be adopted as a standalone offering, all clients subscribing to its payroll module are provided compliance services (e.g., tax processing and filing) in conjunction with the platform subscription.
