Finch closed a strong Q1 during which the company was recognized as Startup of the Year in San Francisco and a leader among Unified APIs by Activant Capital.

Finch kicked off the 2024 fiscal year by being named San Francisco Startup of the Year by HackerNoon, and recognized by Activant Capital as a leader among Unified APIs—an emerging market that Activant anticipates will grow rapidly. 

Following a strong fiscal 2023, Finch continued to build momentum in the first fiscal quarter of 2024, which ended April 30, with the following accomplishments:

  • Grew platform usage at a 99% annualized growth rate. 
  • Announced a partnership with Oyster, a leading global employment solution, and finalized partnerships with six more HRIS and payroll providers, to be announced in the coming months.
  • Signed a major payroll and benefits provider to assist them with connectivity for their benefits product in cooperation with existing partners.
  • Finch Dashboard updates, including: a new way to enable, disable, and configure integrations, more granular permissions with role-based access control, and enhanced dashboard security with MFA (multi-factor authentication).
  • Finch API updates, including a new rehire date field in the /employment endpoint, and a new endpoint to help ‘register’ existing payroll deductions (/register).
  • Improved or expanded integrations with five leading HRIS and payroll providers: Workday, UKG Ready, Justworks, TriNet, and Paychex. 
  • Expanded support for the Finch Sandbox, which can now be used to test our Deductions product and assisted providers. 

“As part of our commitment to the Open Employment Ecosystem, we’re excited to work with one of the largest payroll and HRIS providers in the US to assist them with their benefits product,” said Jeremy Zhang, Co-Founder and CEO. “We look forward to working with providers as customers in concert with our partners to facilitate complementary use cases where everyone wins.”
