In a Nutshell: Running a business is hard, but getting paid shouldn’t be. To make the payment process less of a burden, PaySimple automates billing and collections for small and mid-size businesses. The online and mobile platform offers a cost-efficient way for business owners to easily keep tabs on their finances and appointments. PaySimple’s email invoicing and electronic payment processing facilitate business transactions for people tired of spending time hassling with billing issues. From start to finish, PaySimple empowers businesses to manage their finances more effectively.

Sometimes the best way to figure out what people need is to ask. That’s what Eric Remer and Allen Wolff, then owners of Conclave Group, which published and distributed an apartment renters’ moving guide to thousands of properties nationwide, decided to do for their clients in 2005.

The pair wanted to do more to foster growth and success among their customers, so they turned to them and asked, “How can we make life easier for you?”

“Find a way to make collecting rent easier,” was the gist of the feedback. It was a clear problem for these small businesses, who found themselves wasting precious time and energy just trying to make ends meet.

After co-founding the company, Eric Remer now heads up PaySimple as CEO.

Eric and Allen understood that property managers weren’t the only ones spending tedious hours reconciling books and waiting on payments, so they got to work coming up with a simple solution for all small business needs.

Together, they co-founded PaySimple: a customized, cloud-based platform facilitating all payment processes, including recurring billing, electronic check processing, direct debit, and credit card processing — all of which are offered at a low monthly rate.

Today, PaySimple serves more than 14,000 businesses with helpful features such as electronic invoicing and online payments.

Simplifying billing and collections, the easy-to-use dashboard makes getting paid a cinch for businesses across the U.S.

The feedback from clients speaks to the convenience of this technology. “If I did not have PaySimple, I would be spending three hours a day doing billing stuff,” says Kevin LaManna of OurHelix. “Today, I spend maybe five minutes a week.”

A Creative, Purposeful, and Passionate Team of Innovators

Based out of Denver, Colorado, the PaySimple office is an energetic and values-based place to work. Really capitalizing on the start-up feel, the company offers great perks to reward its hard-working team.

PaySimple employees enjoy monthly happy hours, an all-you-can-ride RTD Eco bus pass, gym reimbursement, catered Friday lunches, and a fully-stocked fridge. What’s more, employees get an extra day of paid time off for their birthdays. “Your birthday is a holiday as far as we’re concerned,” according to the company website. That’s quite the birthday treat.

“Hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed at PaySimple,” says the Vice President of Customer Experience. “We’re really excited to promote folks who go that extra mile.”

The values that inform and motivate this open company culture are abbreviated simply as PATHS: Passion, Authenticity, Teamwork, Happiness, and Success. These core ideas are the foundation of PaySimple’s business model.

These aren’t mere platitudes, but deeply ingrained values that Eric says he strives to live by every day as he runs the company. Every week, staff members award each other five PATHs awards.

The company invests in personal development and seeks to help its employees grow and thrive alongside the budding business.

“Team members can only be their most creative and remarkable selves when they are comfortable being their true authentic selves,” the website reads. “There is laughter, excitement, passionate discussions and debates, and a deep sense of purpose that drives all actions.”
