FlexiTime was founded by Robert Owen in 2009 while he was supposed to be running his previous business, an IT consulting firm called Equator. His experience as a small business owner having to manually enter staff hours into multiple systems to invoice clients and pay staff was doing his head in, so he decided to do something about it.
He searched for a well-designed, intuitive, accurate payroll system that could handle complex business requirements. He looked for an end-to-end time and attendance system that could create rosters, record time in multiple ways and generate payroll and client billing. He couldn’t find one. So he built FlexiTime.
