Ranks 2nd in Weatherhead 100 Top Upstart Businesses Category

CLEVELAND--(), an online payroll service provider just for construction, has been named a Weatherhead 100 company for 2012, ranking second in the “Weatherhead Upstarts” category. is a one of a kind company—a national payroll service that focuses exclusively on construction. And to Fred Ode, CEO of, starting the payroll service had always been a homerun idea. “Contractors needed a payroll service that understood the specific complexities of processing construction payroll, and it just didn’t exist,” said Ode.

Many challenged Ode’s desire to create a payroll service for such a small niche of the country’s workforce. They said that it was too focused, that it wouldn’t work, that it couldn’t hold its own against big name payroll service providers. But Ode knew in his heart that they were wrong, and, in 2006, was born.

The company started slowly, following a conservative business plan that called for controlled growth. Every year, continued to grow steadily. Today, the payroll service focused exclusively on construction is gaining momentum faster than ever. “I’ve been involved in the construction industry for almost 28 years, and I’ve gained a lot of insight over the years about what tools and services contractors need. We used that insight to create a better solution for contractors who want to outsource their payroll. And as big of a risk as it was, it has paid off. To rank second in the Upstart category is truly an incredible accomplishment for our company,” said Ode.

In the past year alone, celebrated a 917.52% sales growth, and it shows no signs of slowing. “We’re thrilled with how quickly our service is catching on with contractors. It has confirmed my initial thought that there was a need for this type of service in construction, and we’re happy that fills this void,” said Ode.

The awards ceremony was held on December 4 at the Executive Caterers at Landerhaven in Mayfield Heights, Ohio. Libby Suchy and Tim Webster were present to accept the award.
