About PrestaShop

Headquartered in Paris, France, PrestaShop is an open-source eCommerce management software that enables anyone to open an online shop. Today, PrestaShop is available in over 60 languages and PrestaShop sites are used to generate over 21 billion Euro in online sales. With the pandemic rapidly expanding their user base as more vendors turned to eCommerce, the ease and flexibility of Prestashop made it an attractive option for many users. 

The PrestaShop team experienced rapid growth over the last two years and aimed to hire a team that mirrors their global reach. In order to manage the hiring and onboarding processes efficiently, PrestaShop began searching for a solution that could help them scale globally, without creating complex, time-consuming workflows.

El desafío

Simplificar y estandarizar la gestión de nóminas en 20 países

Con empleados repartidos por 20 países diferentes, nuestro cliente cuenta con proveedores de servicios en el país para gestionar sus nóminas, lo que les libera de la carga de procesamiento y cumplimiento. Sin embargo, tener un proveedor diferente para cada país es un gran reto para sus equipos centrales de nóminas y finanzas. Reciben los datos de las nóminas de cada país, pero los formatos son totalmente diferentes y los factores de coste y los sueldos que figuran para cada zona geográfica difieren de un proveedor a otro. Comparar los costes de las nóminas de diferentes lugares es casi imposible. 

Además, cada vez que el equipo de nóminas necesita elaborar un informe sobre sus operaciones de nóminas a nivel mundial, se necesita mucho tiempo y esfuerzo para reunir manualmente los datos necesarios. En más de una ocasión, esta recopilación manual de datos ha dado lugar a errores en los informes que sólo se descubrieron meses después, cuando ya era demasiado tarde. Para la empresa de ingeniería, la falta de datos transparentes y fiables sobre las nóminas es un problema importante, ya que les impide acceder a un recurso valioso para tomar decisiones empresariales fundadas.


Growing globally with lightweight onboarding processes

After further evaluating the EOR Model, it was clear that it would be the best fit for PrestaShop’s needs. When it came time to choose providers, it was important that whichever provider they chose felt like a strong partner for the future as well.  It was PrestaShop’s first endeavour into an EOR approach and so a high level of service and rich local knowledge were critical for them. Lano met these qualifications from an attentive team to speedy processes from the very beginning. 

With Lano’s Global Employment Solution, PrestaShop knew that they found a partner that would  ensure that building a scalable EOR approach was as seamless as possible. Once PrestaShop finds a qualified candidate to extend an offer to, they request a quote through Lano. The quote helps them to understand how much it will cost to hire the employee in that country, since every country has different regulations around social costs and taxes. After this quote is approved, Lano and PrestaShop work together to create a compliant employment contract that works well for all of the stakeholders. Once the contract is signed, Lano takes over to start onboarding the new employee via their in-country partner, saving the PrestaShop team time on onboarding. 

Using the Lano platform, the HR and finance team at PrestaShop can manage invoices from their employees abroad simply. With just a couple of clicks, invoices for employees abroad can be approved and paid without leaving the Lano platform. These simplified, standardised processes make it easy and efficient for PrestaShop to hire in new markets without adopting time consuming, country specific processes.


Expand to hiring in four countries within six months

The Lano Global Employment Solution enabled PrestaShop to expand to four countries in six months without opening entities. With Lano, PrestaShop could hire the right people in new markets quickly. PrestaShop met their growth targets and built scalable HR processes. 

Compared to hiring an employee in France, hiring an employee abroad with Lano saves the HR team at least 10 hours per employee during the onboarding process alone. The high level of support provided from Lano to the team at PrestaShop made the transition to using an EOR model straightforward every step of the way and it was simple to reach out to their dedicated account manager when questions arose. PrestaShop plans to continue to grow internationally using Lano’s platform as they continue to test new markets.
