It also includes employee benefits modules which offers salary advance, personal loan and health & term insurance to employees.
Speaking about the investment, Dinesh Agarwal, Founder, and CEO of IndiaMART said “COVID-19 has accelerated the adoption of SaaS-based HR Management solutions by new age as well as traditional businesses. Apart from their core Payroll and attendance management modules, we also feel that there is immense potential in Zimyo’s vision of providing comprehensive HR management modules and other benefits to employees as well as employers.

Millions of employees of the small and mid-size businesses, which form over 45% of this working population are forced to choose between paper or HR solutions that aren’t designed for them. Zimyo wishes to bridge the gap. We want to be the go-to HR Platform that both the SMB and the employee chooses for meeting its HR and benefits’ needs”, said Kumar Mayank, CEO of Zimyo.
