Atlas, the leading Direct Employer of Record (EOR), and datascalehr, the AI-native payroll data platform, today announced their partnership that will see Atlas implement datascalehr’s innovative payroll and HR technology.  

datascalehr removes—once and for all—the need for data connectors in the payroll process. Customer benchmarks show a dramatic acceleration (greater than 10x) of implementation speed, which will allow Atlas to not only decrease implementation time but also significantly increase the efficiency of daily payroll operations. This massive reduction in manual work will eliminate nearly all data inaccuracies, empowering Atlas to double down on its industry-leading quality and service while immediately becoming one of the most tech-enabled companies in the EOR space. Already well-known and respected for its outstanding customer service, this implementation now promises to put Atlas in a completely different category than the competition.  

“Implementing datascalehr allows us to harness the power of AI to streamline our operations like never before. This is a game-changer for us and for the industry as a whole,” said Jim McCoy, CEO of Atlas. “We’re not just upgrading our systems—we’re upgrading our entire approach to global payroll and HR management.” 

Jerome Gouvernel, Co-Founder & CEO of datascalehr, expressed his enthusiasm about the partnership, stating, “We are thrilled to support Atlas, a company that shares our vision for transforming the payroll and HR landscape through technology. Our AI-native platform is built to redefine the standards of data management and operational efficiency, and this collaboration sets the stage for a new era of technological excellence in the EOR industry.” 

For the EOR industry as a whole, this is evidence of a growing revolution, one spurred by datascalehr itself.  

Before the company’s inception, organizations would have invested several years, large software development teams, and millions of dollars trying to build in-house solutions, often ending up with more technical debt and an undifferentiated product. datascalehr, founded by Gouvernel and two other veterans of the payroll and HR industry, provides an almost unfathomably simple and effective alternative to the high-risk, do-it-yourself solutions.  

At the center of datascalehr’s technology is KMod™, a cutting-edge combination of proprietary AI, machine learning, and the only global knowledge base of HR integration metadata. With it, datascalehr customers—like Atlas—enjoy seamless payroll operations, universal connectivity, and global data transparency, thereby freeing up valuable resources to further prioritize product innovation, customer acquisition, and customer retention. 

In this respect, Atlas leaders see the implementation of datascalehr as much more than just a technological upgrade—they see it as a strategic maneuver that enhances their ability to scale operations, improve unit economics, and offer even more value to customers.  

“The integration of datascalehr’s AI-native platform into our workflow represents a quantum leap in our capability to process and manage data efficiently,” said Warren Perlman, CTO of Atlas. “This technology enhances our service delivery and significantly reduces our operational complexity. I have no doubt that it’s going to be transformative for our organization and our customers, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
