“The freedom to focus on what matters most.”

How Kolleno accelerated global expansion using Playroll to hire from a wider talent pool.

MEET Kolleno:

Credit control platform with global plans

Kolleno is a sophisticated software revolutionising the way finance departments manage Accounts Receivable. Building a far-reaching service such as Kolleno meant widening the search for global talent.


International intentions met by
complex preventions.

Kolleno, based in the United Kingdom, planned to expand their presence in Canada and find talented software developers in other countries. Although Kolleno was ready to start their international hiring journey, they were met with the following challenges

  • Frightening costs of incorporating legal entities in foreign jurisdictions
  • No capacity to go into new markets and establish physical entities.
  • Unaware of the secret software development talent pool within South Africa.

global expansion

Kolleno was able to leverage Playroll’s international network of subsidiaries to hire talent in foreign jurisdictions, quickly and compliantly.
