Mercans Appoints Domovits Group CEO

Mercans, a global provider in payroll technology based in the United Arab Emirates, has appointed Tatjana Domovits to become their Global CEO. Mercans’ board expressed confidence in Domovits, who since 2013 had served as the company’s Director of Administration, as “the best person to lead Mercans into the future, building world-class payroll technology, transforming global payroll and the employer-of-record industry, and making global employment frictionless.”

Mercans, which delivers native payroll processing capabilities and integrations with local tax authorities across 160 countries, also announced it has invested heavily in creating an “unparallel global payroll ecosystem” in the industry. According to the company, it has forged several high-profile partnerships with leading HCM providers to offer a simplified and integrated payroll experience. Seamless integration between these HCM solutions and Mercans’ HR Blizz subscription services means, according to the company, that customers can use their preferred HCM and workforce management solutions, but still have employees paid accurately and effortlessly anywhere in the world.

“Mercans has succeeded in breaking a misconception that building a multi-country payroll software is impossible,” said Domovits. “Our technology allows employers to pay their employees anywhere in the world in minutes. We have made global payroll truly effortless.”
