“Small businesses that employ blue-collar workers still resort to manual, paper-based payroll processing, which can be particularly difficult to track. We need a technology solution that addresses the complexities of employee management, payroll, benefits, compliance, and more for a small business owner. This also helps blue-collar employees get a digital footprint of their payroll and employment details that they can easily share with financial institutions to avail loan and insurance products,” said Nikhil, chief executive officer, and co-founder.

The startup said that it would use the funds to accelerate product development and drive customer acquisition.

 “In my experience, the momentum that SalaryBox has achieved in a year is unprecedented. It brings the benefits of software to a massive industry that is yet to embrace technology at scale. Their potential market includes hundreds of millions of employees, who will be able to build a credit profile enriched with the employment and payroll data, as a result, get better access to financial products," mentioned Rajesh Sawhney, founder, GSF Accelerator.
