Activehours Announces Four Partnerships to Extend On-Demand Pay Benefit to Workers

Activehours' New Partnerships Make It Easy for Over One Million Hourly Workers to Access Their Pay as They Earn It

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 12, 2015) - Activehours, the new, faster way to get paid, today announced strategic partnerships with four visionary timesheet providers -- TSheets, WebPunchClock, Brink Software and When I Work. With these partnerships, it's even easier for the more than one million hourly workers who use these systems to access their pay as they earn it. Since its launch in 2014, Activehours has been available through its Android and iOS apps to the over 75 million hourly workers and on-demand workers in the US.

"Until Activehours' launch last spring, the two-week pay cycle hadn't evolved since the industrial revolution. There's no reason anymore to wait two weeks after you've worked to get your pay," said Ram Palaniappan, founder, Activehours. "Employees from over 2,500 companies currently use Activehours, and these integrated partnerships will make an even more seamless experience available to employees in more than 10,000 companies."

Millennial Workers Need Choices to Save Money
2015 marks the first year that Millennials represent more than half of the workforce. Despite being gainfully employed, however, many Millennials are finding it even more difficult to save during a time of increasing student debt, rising rent prices and a slowly improving job market.

A recent Ypulse survey conducted on behalf of Activehours revealed that one in four working Millennials paid hourly believe that having access to their pay as they earn it would have a bigger impact on their finances than increasing their hourly wage. The study also showed that 52 percent of Millennials felt that the bi-weekly pay cycle is unfair.

"At TSheets, we love employees, and we know that employees will love the flexibility that they have when they combine Activehours' on-demand access to pay with our leading time and attendance software. With this solution, employees who use TSheets will be able access their pay in time to make important payments and break away from the stress of having to wait for their paycheck," said TSheets CEO Matt Rissell.
