Remote Launches API to Empower Indian Businesses to Expand Talent Pool Across Borders

Remote, the leader in building, managing, and supporting global distributed workforces, today announced the availability of its first-to-market API solution in India. In the post-pandemic world, Indian companies are the biggest recruiter of remote international workers in the APAC region. About 50% of Indian small-to-medium businesses are planning to hire 40-60% full-time employees or contractors from other countries in the next 12 months (according to recent research by IDC sponsored by Remote).

The Remote API is built for software partners to embed Remote’s global employment solution directly within their platforms, giving the companies they serve the ability to effortlessly hire employees globally, pay their teams in local currencies, and remain compliant with local regulations. Through a customizable integration, partners can support their customers’ workforce needs in multiple countries all within their own platform, enabling them to scale more efficiently. Remote’s customers can also use the Remote API to build custom integrations to securely sync their employee and contractor data between Remote and their HR tools of choice.

This industry-leading integration through a single platform makes it easier for businesses to manage a global workforce, enabling them to scale efficiently – with less hassle.

“For modern companies, building a high-performance team requires an ability to acquire the best talent globally” said Chris McNamara, Chief Revenue Officer at Remote. “The Remote API makes it possible for our partners to immediately offer their customers the ability to hire anywhere around the world.  We’ve meticulously built all the employment infrastructure and compliance knowledge so that our partners and their customers can simply plug in and focus on their core business”.

The Remote API can be tailored based on each partner’s individual needs, from simple builds to existing processes such as annual leave management, through to a fully embedded, white-labeled solution to manage the entire global employment lifecycle directly from the partner’s platform.

Remote recently partnered with Gusto, a leader in payroll, benefits, and HR serving more than 300,000 businesses in the United States, to launch a solution enabling customers to hire, pay, and manage international employees, quickly and compliantly.  Gusto Global powered by Remote leverages the Remote API to enable U.S. customers to manage and pay their entire global team through the Gusto platform, regardless of whether those team members are in the U.S., international, contract, or full-time.

For partners, layering the Remote API into their platforms means they can offer global employment directly to their customers before they start looking elsewhere.
