Our Team

  • Greg McManus

    Managing Director

    About Greg McManus

    Greg entered the IT industry in the 1970’s developing commercial applications, performing sales support and education roles.

    He became involved in payroll software and service delivery in 1981.

    In 1988, whilst working at Mayne Nickless Computer Services, Greg managed the development of a payroll application for a new services business named Payline. Today Payline is flourishing and is owned and operated by ADP.

    In 1990 Greg founded his own business, National Payroll Systems, and introduced Australia’s first multi-tenant on demand payroll application, Payroll Plus. Today Payroll Plus is owned and operated by Talent2.

    Greg retired in 2012 but decided retirement was premature. He wanted to contribute to Australian payroll offices big and small, applying his knowledge and experience developing a new generation of payroll software. The software should be intuitive, should give users greater control and should minimise IT technical support. The software should improve the efficiency of payroll offices giving them time to engage more effectively with their organisations. And, importantly, the software’s efficiency should increase the profitability of payroll service providers.

    In February 2013 Greg founded the new payroll software company Payroll Metrics with the objective of achieving his goal.

Payroll Metrics is Built for the Cloud.

As organisations direct their IT deployment towards cloud-based implementations, the question about the pros and cons of “cloud-native” software vs “cloud-hosted” software requires closer investigation by software buyers.
