PayGroup Limited (ASX: PYG) (‘the Company’ or ‘the Group’) is a Software as a Service (SaaS) company that provides Payroll and HR outsourcing (‘Business Process Outsourcing’ or ‘BPO’ solutions) and Cloud-based Human Capital Management (HCM Cloud) software to multinational companies in Asia-Pacific markets. Their solutions help medium to large businesses with employees across multiple countries reduce their operational and compliance risk.
PayGroup’s solutions are delivered to approximately 410 client entities with 31,000 customers across 18 countries. The Group is forecast to generate pro forma revenues of $7.6m and pro forma NPAT of $2.6m for FY18. It has a diverse and loyal client base, with the largest Cloud or BPO client entity representing less than 5% of the Group’s service revenue for FY17 and 90% client retention rate.
The Company is addressing the Asia Pacific BPO Services market valued at US$20.177 billion, with the Emerging Asia Pacific segment growing at 10.3% (Source: Gartner).
PayGroup generates recurring revenue through its two solution suites. The BPO solution for clients covers the outsourcing of payroll, other employee benefits, banking, treasury and statutory lodgement services which is complemented by HROnline a proprietary Cloud based HCM software.
BPO Payroll Services is PayGroup’s core business service and provides outsourced payroll process for its clients’ employees. As part of the service, the Group undertakes a business review to streamline the clients’ payroll processing, workflow and treasury functions. The Group then transacts on behalf of the client in performing its payroll process, disburses employee payroll and lodges all statutory submissions (including taxation, pension & provident funds and other social benefits). These transactions are delivered through the Cloud.
The HCM Cloud product suite supports clients in managing aspects of their employee lifecycle, plus regional and mobile-enabled workflows for critical processes, such as employee and manager self-service, leave management and expense management. The Group will be leveraging the flexibility of its Cloud deployment capabilities to further implement its SaaS HCM suite in additional countries within and outside of the Asia Pacific region.
The sales and marketing activities are split into three business units: Cloud software, BPO and Global Marketing and Sales Enablement.
BPO sales are handled by a separate focused sales team in Singapore and Malaysia due to the depth and complexity of BPO Payroll Services and solutions.
Cloud software is sold through a direct sales team, and it is envisaged that strategic relationships will be established for cloud sales via reputable technology integrators, allowing the Company to generate additional revenue at a lower cost of sales.
Global Marketing and Sales Enablement oversees lead generation for both BPO and Cloud sales via traditional and digital marketing and strategic client management programs. The Group envisages adding alliances and/or forming strategic relationships with European and North American BPO and suitable technology providers wanting access to Asia Pacific markets.
