Co-founder & CEO of Buddee, Rob Toonen, added:
The platform has grown faster since the pandemic outbreak. The lockdowns meant a big change for SMEs since their employees had to work from home. How should these companies administrate travel costs, days off, and working from home? Our platform helps SMEs with those administrative challenges. Many companies still handle their administration in Excel sheets, email, and hard copy files. We bundle everything in one digital ecosystem. This saves entrepreneurs, employees, and their accountants time and hassle so that they can focus on the well-being of their people. That is not a luxury in the current job market.
