What do you dislike about Remote?

They claim to onboard people globally. APAC region they work with multiple sub vendors which create lot of issue. They don’t have local presence. For APAC region better use other platforms. Oyster not doing well at all.

What do you dislike about Remote?

I did not have a positive experience with the customer service. I was not paid and did not know why. It took the company about 3 months to resolve my issue and pay me.

Ask 4 Questions Before You Choose 
a Global EOR Solution

Is the pricing structure complex?

Understand the EOR’s pricing structure to ensure it fits your budget.

Gloroots offers transparent, simple, and affordable pricing. You can hire unlimited contractors at $29/contractor/month and employees at $299/employee/month.

Deel has a simple but expensive pricing structure that may not be a good fit for SMEs.

Is my data safe with the service provider?

Data security is often compromised when working with third-party service providers. Gloroots ensure 100% IP protection. We are GDPR compliant and have the highest security policies in place.

Does the service provider maintain transparency?

Without clear visibility, it is difficult for businesses to know how the service provider uses their resources. 

Gloroots gives you complete visibility of your resource usage and liabilities. We send monthly reports stating the FX rates, tax deductions, social security liabilities, and a detailed EOR fee breakdown.

Is the payroll system flexible and simple?

A seamless payroll system ensures timely payments to your workforce. With Gloroots’ single-click payroll system, your workforce will be paid on time in their home currencies.  Moreover, you can pay us in a single transaction via cards, ACH, wire, or Crypto.

Deel’s payroll system still requires improvement since clients often face frequent changes in payment dates.
