The Evolution Story

If you wanted to build the best payroll technology for the service bureau industry, where would you begin? You might start by learning the payroll industry from top to bottom. That’s what happened when a payroll service bureau turned their attention to building a payroll and tax engine software we now know as Evolution. And that is just the beginning of the story.


1999: An Ambitious Journey Begins

Evolution’s inception resulted in a dynamic payroll system built by veteran service bureau professionals exclusively for payroll service providers - a system that provides powerful tools, best practices, and flexibility to successfully support clients of all sizes and complexity levels.

  • Successfully managed a payroll service bureau for 10 years to learn everything about the business.
  • Vigorously tested leading payroll systems and evaluated what worked and what was missing.
  • Developed a brand new payroll system to do what other software failed to do.
  • Continued to innovate and invest in the system, meeting the complex business and technological challenges of the changing business environment.
  • Tied the success of the business to the ongoing success of its payroll service bureau clients.


2015: Expanded to HCM

Evolution HCM Suite, an end-to-end single source solution for any human capital management need was launched. It bundled Evolution Payroll with the newly developed Evolution Advanced HR, a full-featured software-as-a-service (SaaS) HRIS solution that offers a unique combination of employee collaboration and traditional workforce management including integrated applicant tracking, new hire onboarding, online benefits enrollment, benefits administration, training, Web time and labor management, performance reviews, expense management, and more.


2017: The Journey Continues

In 2017, Evolution HCM became part of the Asure Software suite of exceptional facility management tools designed to increase workplace productivity. Asure’s workplace and workforce management solutions range from HCM workforce management solutions, time and attendance to workspace asset optimization and meeting room management solutions, cloud-based time & labor management and workspace management software solutions that take integral business processes to the next level.
