PayrollHero Update: HTML5 Camera

Great News! – The PayrollHero PhotoBooth has been rebuilt from the ground up to take advantage of the latest technology from Google. We’re about to rollout a new PhotoBooth for both the MyClock Web and TeamClock Web and it utilizes a HTML 5 camera.

This will make the MyClock Web and TeamClock Web pages even faster and smoother on your Google Chrome Browser.

This means we are no longer using Adobe Flash to power the Camera and all the prior manual Flash configuration settings have been replaced with a single, one-time click of the Allow button the first time you use it.

We have organized these dinner in Vancouver, Whistler, Seattle, San Francisco, Manila and Singapore.

Last nights dinner was at Champetre, one of the oldest restaurants in Fort Bonifacio, Philippines and a fantastic choice. Marc the French owner/chef has a solid menu with lots of options for all tastes.

In attendance were Bryce Maddock CEO of Taskus.com, Adam Keogh GM of Employers Mutual, Rafael Romualdez, JP Werlin CEO of Pipeline Deals, Nick Franklin MD of Asia for Zendesk, Mark Yu CFO of SeaOil and myself.

How To Hack An Event To Get The Most Out of a Speaker


Some of our team members including Mike Stephenson, Adam Baechler, Ron Maravilla and myself attended the Vancouver Chapter of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) event today which was led by Jack Daly, world renown sales expert and coach. We had the honour of being able to showcase our product and meet with other business professionals from diverse industries. As a fun and exciting way to surprise everyone, we set up our iOS TeamClock app to have almost everyone that RSVP’d for the event in a PayrollHero account setup as an employee and ready to clock in. Seeing the surprised look on peoples face to see their own photo was quite entertaining!

The focus of Jack’s presentation was around smart selling in regards to creating leveraged growth with systems & processes. Through his 50 years of sales experience, Jack has more knowledge and passion for the subject that anyone you have ever met. He kept everyone engaged, inspired and laughing with his charisma and insightful techniques in the sales management arena.

How To Hack An Event To Get The Most Out of a Speaker;
Knowing Jack to be extremely sought after for events with a very busy schedule, we worked hard to arrange in advance that we could provide him with a ride to the airport on us to both thank him for his time in Vancouver and pick his brain on subjects of importance to our team. Always being the true professional, we learned more about his background and personal experiences while still finding time to give us direct feedback on our companies objectives, systems and requirements. As a group we can all agree Jack is a magnificent speaker and coach on sales and we highly recommend him for your next conference. Check out his site for more information!

This is not the first time we have used this technique to get more face time with someone. PayrollHero co-founder Steve Jagger once offered to drive a member of the media to work after she mentioned on Twitter that buses were not running due to snow. Steve jumped at the opportunity to meet with her, learn more about what she was writing and talk more about our company. He offered to drive her to work as he was “on his way downtown”. Which of course he was not, but took the opportunity to meet up with her.

Another time, Lean Startup visionary Eric Ries was in Whistler, Canada with his wife for work and tweeted that he had some downtime. This was long before we had an office in Whistler, Steve responded on Twitter that he and Mike would love to meet up for a beer. Eric responded that he could do that, thinking that we were in Whistler as well. They hopped into their car in Vancouver and drove an hour to Whistler to meet up with him.

Moral of the story, we keep our eyes open for opportunity and are not afraid to hustle!

One of our #AdventureEngineers happens to be a pretty advanced skier!


Bram Whillock, a senior web developer at our company takes full advantage of what Whistler offers for skiing. Often coming into the office with a grin on his face and a sun tan from being on the summit of some of the highest peaks in the province, Bram is the epitome of balancing work with play. A few days ago Bram shadowed with a local company that teaches and certifies individuals with their Avalanche Course training. In his pursuit to be a professional ski guide with full certification, he helped hands on with the 3 day program that involved some in classroom learning and 2 days of being on the mountain evaluating snow pack and common avalanche triggers.

We have another new team member Justin!

justin (1)Justin joins our PayrollHero Whistler office as a Client Success Hero with our support team. Despite being a Vancouver native now, he hails from the Philippines and brings our team an array of helpful attributes. Welcome Justin!

“I’m Justin, 25 years old and I can fit in your pocket! My motto has always been “Less is More.”

I moved to Vancouver from the Philippines in 1995 with my single mother and two older siblings. Fast forward: continuous soul searching, plenty of mistakes along the way, living off Craigslist gigs, and even worked as a VW/Audi mechanic at some point.

Now I live a purpose driven life that aligns my musical calling, with my spiritual calling.

You can catch me making beats in my man cave, DJ’ing at local/international nightclubs, weight training, being in the great outdoors and most importantly, building my relationships with the people who matter most to me.
I’ve had experience in many different fields, but the common denominator is this: Helping others. PayrollHero seems to be aligned with the same mentality of changing and helping how people live and work in the business world. That is why I’m more than excited to be part of such a passionate, driven, and most of all, friendly team! Thank you for reading!”
