HReasily, a Singapore-based HR and benefits management platform, announced that it has received a US$5-million investment from one of its clients, venture capital firm Envy Capital.

HReasily said its platform now has over 30,000 companies in different countries around Asia. These firms operate in Vietnam, Cambodia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore.

The platform provides HR and benefits management services such as leave management, time and attendance, expense claims, and payroll. Moving forward, HReasily aims to add scheduling and employee benefits next and then performance appraisal, onboarding and scheduling, and reporting by 2020.

So far this year, the startup has added an insurance component to its staff benefits pilot module. It also introduced its white-label solutions.

Envy’s deputy managing director Rhiya Lee said HReasily’s business model is scalable and features a system that allows for the addition of new modules as needed. She added that the platform saves companies and business a lot of time and manpower because it is easy to use.
