Neil Morgan, SimplyMerit Founder, has always been focused on technology. He has a bachelor’s degree in computer science, built a consulting and software company that he eventually sold, and led groundbreaking work utilizing cloud computing. However, he found himself moving in a new direction thanks to an informal education in human resources. “You could say I married into HR and earned an associates degree from dinner time conversations,” he said.
After wrapping up the sale of his company, BrightStar Partners, Neil finally had the time to look closely at the HR work his wife, Laura, was doing, including all of the spreadsheets that managed the annual merit and bonus process. “I instantly knew this was something that belonged in the cloud,” he said. He researched the market and found a real need for a tool that would simplify the annual headache of dozens of spreadsheets mapping the distribution of salary increases and bonuses while eliminating errors. Thus, SimplyMerit was born.
Neil and SimplyMerit promise to have clients LIVE IN FIVE days or less and offer an unlimited support system. SimplyMerit imports data into a tool where managers can see the budget and how it’s distributed. The program manages the approval process as salaries and bonuses are distributed, sends alerts if something is off, and even distributes letters notifying employees as decisions are made. “Anyone using spreadsheets is an ideal candidate for SimplyMerit. It’s easier to set up and flawless,” Morgan said.
