Our story started in 2009 when Zipier founder, Craig, opened a call center in the Philippines. After signing our first clients, it became clear we needed a better solution for payroll, HR, and attendance, and phone system. Zipier tried a few alternatives and finally realized if we wanted a great platform we'd have to build it ourselves.
As the years passed, other businesses took notice and inquired about using Zipier for their own business needs. Feedback from a wider community is something we value, so we gave out logins for free — and have done so ever since.
In 2013, after years of improvements and hundreds of extremely satisfied users, we noticed that there was still no one doing free payroll, HR, and attendance, and phone system, with an affordable, simple, and scalable Cloud Co-worker service. We had a vision of how the whole world would benefit, so we made the jump.
Fast forward to today. We've been doing FREE Zipier Payroll, Zipier Phone System, and Zipier Cloud Co-workers now for 8 years. Our free live chat customer happiness team is open 8 hours a day, 5 days a week... AND our fully inclusive rate for Zipier Cloud Co-workers starts at only USD $7 per hour. Zipier Phone System can call over five billion phone numbers globally.
