PayTickr is a system developed by EmployeeAssist Inc., a software development company located in Calgary, Alberta founded in 2015.
EmployeeAssist Inc., was founded by CEO Kreg MacPhee and CTO Bradley Rougeau. The idea for PayTickr came to Kreg years before EmployeeAssist started. At the time he owned a landscaping company that often worked along roadways and highways, and at schools and parks. They recognized the need to reduce time at the payroll cycle and to eliminate manual mistakes. They developed an easy mobile payroll tracking system for its small remote workforce, and this became the genesis of PayTickr.
