Check out Remote's Drawbacks directly from its users

What do you dislike about Remote?

I started using this platform a little more than a year ago and the information they provide is very limited. I feel there are hidden cost in their services. The features could be better and the customer support is kinda slow

Gloroots offers transparent pricing and customer centric support

What do you dislike about Remote?

They have frequently overcharged us and delayed paying the refund. There is next to zero transparency on what part of the charge is payroll vs their service fee.
Rohan Sampath
Co-Founder & CEO
Gloroots offers timely payments, refunds and transparent pricing

What do you dislike about Remote?

The first problem is their bait-and-switch approach to pricing. It takes many days of back and forth with mixed levels of competency from their support team to resolve issues

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.
