Hear what teams love about using RemotePass.

RemotePass has been so efficient for us as we have at least 60% of our team being remote. Especially for tracking if everyone has been paid out or if they have reimbursements, we don't have to manually do it one by one anymore. It's also really good since we are in compliance with each and every single one of our remote teams' place of residence.

Lorena A, HR
@NasDaily

RemotePass has enabled Swvl to be more flexible, allowing us to hire the best talent in Remote locations. RemotePass has been a great partner and fast tracking Swvl's growth plans in multiple countries. Special shout out to the support team for the exemplary service.

Faizan M, Global HR
@SWVL

Brilliant service. We love and we'd be using it for the years to come. Also great customer success management as well!

Badr A.  CEO
@Soum

We love the entire system you guys have built, it's user-friendly and in particular we love the automated notifications part. Employees are automatically informed about the payment status and they receive the payment in a couple of hours after they get notified vs. manually asking us. Thanks for your ongoing support

Muhammed, CFO
@ShortPoint

The experience with Remote pass and the assistance you have provided with my recent transaction is amazing. I really liked the follow-up nudge and provide me details is super cool. Thanks for your help

Tarun V.
@NasEducation

Using RemotePass has been an absolute game-changer for our operations - knowing that we have a reliable partner on our side even in complex regions efficiently (this has previously been a big headache for us), allows our teams to focus exclusively on client service and product delivery

Nina, Associate VP
@Infomineo

We were looking for a simple and affordable product and RemotePass more than delivered. RemotePass helped us streamline and manage our remote teams. RemotePass understood us as a company and provided us the support and confidence that we are compliant with regulations, our remote teams have excellent support, and that we made the right choice

Preeta, HR Business Partner
@Eyewa

Love it! It has been an essential tool for us, the perks of having everything at the point of my fingers.Using RemotePass has been super efficient. The platform is user-friendly and fast, and communication with customer service is truly a "gold standard".

Iyad A, Head of People
@Unico

RemotePass has been very helpful as it streamlines the payment process to our consultants, with a simple 2 to 3 clicks the job is done. It is effortless and straightforward to use. The most important thing is that It eliminates any compliance risks we might face, and the lengthy verification process. Overall the system is excellent, and I would recommend it to other organizations.

Rafik, Head of HR
@Rizek

The product has been incredibly a game-changer for us as we scaled our team globally. Creating a great first impression when onboarding remote teams . Everything centralized in one place. Love it!

Roxana L, Chief People Officer
@Bankio

Our work with RemotePass is a partnership based on trust and credibility we are proud to have. With RemotePass services, onboarding and payroll for our global team is well managed and our employees feel safe and cared for.

Fahad A, HR
@Soum KSA

I was instantly impressed with the UI/UX of the RemotePass platform, it is incredibly user-friendly and the feedback I have received from the remote workers has been excellent. Having supplied contract and remote staff to clients in the Middle East for several years, I have been used to a very manual and labor-heavy process when it comes to payroll and compliance. After one demonstration from the team at RemotePass I switched from using an existing supplier, as I get better value and service using this platform.

كان ريموت باس فعالاً للغاية بالنسبة لنا حيث لدينا ما لا يقل عن 60٪ من فريقنا يعمل عن بعد، خاصةً لتتبع إذا كان قد تم الدفع للجميع أو اذا يوجد تعويضات ,  حيث لا داعي لفعل ذلك يدوياً لكل فرد مجدداً. فمنصة ريموت-باس حقاً ممتازة لأننا نلتزم بأماكن إقامة لكل فرد من فرقنا البعيدة.

لورينا أ.، موظفة في الموارد البشرية

مكنت منصة ريموت باس  من أن تصبح شركة سويڤل  أكثر مرونة، مما سمحت لنا بتوظيف أفضل المواهب عن بعد. ريمو- باس تعتبر شريك رائع لتتبع خطط نمو سويڤل بسرعة في العديد من البلدان. تحية خاصة لفريق الدعم على الخدمة المثالية.

خدمة رائعة للغاية. نحبها وسنستخدمها في السنوات القادمة، كما أن هناك إدارة عملاء ناجحة وعظيمة!

بدر أ.، المدير التنفيذي
@Soum

أحببنا النظام بأكمله الذي صنعتموه يا رفاق!، فهو سهل الاستخدام ونحب على وجه الخصوص جزء الإشعارات الآلية، حيث يبلغ الموظفين تلقائياً بحالة الدفع ويتلقون الدفع في غضون ساعتين بعد إخطارهم بدلاً من طلبنا يدوياً. شكراً لدعمكم المستمر.

محمد، المدير المالي
@ShortPoint

تجربة منصة ريموت-باس والدعم الذي قدمته في معاملتي الأخيرة كانت مذهلة. أحببت حقاً إشعار المتابعة وتزويدي بالتفاصيل أمر رائع للغاية. شكراً لمساعدتكم.

@NasEducation

استخدام ريموت- باس هو تغيير مطلق لقواعد التعامل في عملياتنا - معرفة أنه لدينا شريكاً موثوقاً به في صفنا حتى في المناطق المعقدة بكفاءة (كان هذا في السابق مشكلة كبيرة لدينا)، فهي سمحت لفرقنا بالتركيز الشامل على خدمة العملاء وتوصيل المنتج.

نينا، مساعدة نائب الرئيس

أحببتها! منصة ريموت-باس أداة ضرورية بالنسبة لنا، يتضمن ذلك امتيازات الحصول على كل شيء في متناول يدي. حيث كان استخدام منصة ريموت باس فعالاً للغاية، حيث أنَّ المنصة سهلة الاستخدام وسريعة، والتواصل مع خدمة العملاء هو حقاً "قيمةً ذهبية".

إياد أ.، رئيس الموظفين
@Unico

منصة  ريموت باس مفيدة  للغاية لأنها تُبسط عملية الدفع لمستشارينا، بنقرتين إلى ثلاث نقرات بسيطة تُنجز المهمة حيث أنها سهلة الاستخدام ومباشرة. أهم شيء هو أنها تقضي على أي مخاطر امتثال قد نواجهها، وتقضي على عملية التحقق المطولة. عموماً، النظام ممتاز، وأوصي به للمؤسسات الأخرى.

@Soum KSA

ذهلت على الفور بواجهة المستخدم لمنصة ريموت باس، فهي سهلة الاستخدام للغاية والتعليقات التي تلقيتها من الموظفين عن بُعد كانت ممتازة. بعد أن قدمت العقود والموظفين عن بعد للعملاء في الشرق الأوسط لعدة سنوات، اعتدت على العملية اليدوية والشاقة للغاية عندما يتعلق الأمر بكشوف الرواتب والامتثال. بعد عرض توضيحي واحد من الفريق في ريموت باس، قمت باستبدال استخدام المزود الحالي، حيث قدمت لي المنصة قيمة وخدمة رائعة.
