The investment thesis is that Orbital Shift is well positioned, with respect to proven product, customer value, and revenue to ride the wave of SMB adoption of SaaS solutions that are rapidly replacing paper, Excel, and legacy Kronos/ADP offerings. An important secular driver of growth, beyond the cloud and mobile penetration, is regulation. Recent changes to overtime eligibility (move from $23k/year to $47k/year) and mandated rest and meal periods are providing financial and penalty incentives for SMBs to employ time and attendance software with regulatory rules and reporting capabilities built in. With the new overtime DOL rules an additional 4.2m workers are now eligible for OT. We were introduced to the Founder, Kevin O'Reilly, by the CEO of Submittable, another portfolio investment.
