Paycom's unified platform appeals to midsize and enterprise clients who prefer an all-in-one payroll and HCM solution. The company's platform is supported by a single database, which provides a single source of truth and allows efficient software development and maintenance. Unlike competitors, Paycom discourages data integrations to third-party providers but instead incentivises clients to contain their HCM solutions within its unified platform by offering add on modules including time and attendance and benefits administration. In practice, new clients may consolidate their payroll and HCM solutions from multiple providers to an all-in-one solution by Paycom. The company is squarely focused on driving greater automation and employee self-service, supported by complimentary analytics tools for clients and the recent roll out self-service payroll module, BETI.
