Key Findings & Highlights:

The company was formed in 2012 as an HR solution provider focused on developing a next-generation "People Operations Platform" (HCM), specifically designed for the end-user, alongside key HR processes. 

In August 2017, Namely expanded beyond HCM technology, launching a managed service offering to complement its platform, including managed payroll, benefits administration, HR consulting, and employment verification support. In Q1 2020, Namely introduced its "Enhanced Services" offering, inclusive of managed payroll, benefits, and project services.

Today Namely's HCM technology and services offering supports >1.4k clients and >250k client employees, processing >$14 bn in payroll annually.

Namely offers a fully managed payroll service as an extended add-on solution to complement its cloud payroll module, which is natively delivered within the Namely People Operations Platform, and is leveraged exclusively in the delivery of its payroll services. ~77% of Namely's client base has adopted its payroll module and services.

Namely leverages and offers its own cloud HCM platform, built on a single database, and delivered as a SaaS-based, multi-tenant solution. Although its current configuration primarily supports North American based employees,  it also supports global employees in ~30 countries (for core HR and talent only);  ~20% of its current user base has an international presence.
