Life at Swipeclock

Hi, we’re Swipeclock. Happy to meet you.

Let us introduce ourselves.

As an HR Tech company, we’re focused on small business solutions.

Small businesses are the engine of the American economy – and that’s a tall order. Almost half of U.S. employment is made up of Small Business Employers. They provide jobs for over 60 million people.

As the workplace continues to morph, it takes a substantial amount of time and an ever-increasing wealth of knowledge to put people to work. Big corporations have entire departments devoted to hiring and managing workforces.

But who takes care of that in a small business? It may be one designated individual such as an HR Director or CHRO. More likely it’s an “also” – as in the finance manager who “also handles HR.”

Sound familiar?

Our Roots

Our strong history of success: 20+ years as the leading choice of workforce management by the country’s top HR resellers and payroll providers is the foundation upon which we are built. As our solution expanded to include talent, benefits and engagement tools paired with our time and attendance solutions, we chose to unify all of the functionality within one product, WorkforceHub. We didn’t start with HR software like our competitors. Our roots are in scheduling, time and labor, and time collection solutions. These are the complex, but absolutely mission-critical pieces for every small business to run efficiently. We cut our teeth perfecting these capabilities for small businesses like yours.


We’ve made it possible for small businesses to get all the components needed to streamline workforce management, eliminate frustration and save time, energy and money.

Future & Meeting Your Demands

Today, Swipeclock provides industry-leading products, service and support to the HR community. While we continue to empower our partner channel to find success and grow their business, we also strive to provide small business with the tools they need to thrive in today’s ever-evolving business landscape.

We pride ourselves in listening intently to our customers and partners. Using our priceless customer feedback, plus industry trends and continuous innovation, we are constantly pushing ourselves to expand our product offerings to deliver the tools and services users need to successfully run their businesses now and into the future.

We didn’t start with HR software like our competitors. Nor, are we the product of an enterprise-level solution who decided they wanted to sell a few small businesses, so tried to remove components.

Our roots are in scheduling, time and labor – the hard, mission-critical workforce pieces that have to come together before HR needs even enter the picture.

We cut our teeth perfecting these capabilities for complex small businesses like yours.

We get it.
