Why teams prefer Deel over Ontop for global HR and Payroll

Avoid high penalties with
unmatched global compliance

With built-in global compliance and in-house experts in 100+ countries, Deel has what it takes to maintain compliance everywhere. In contrast, Ontop compromises compliance to offer lower prices, putting their clients and their teams at risk.

Save precious time on HR admin

Deel has a wide range of integrations and better built-in automation. Ontop has no integrations and lacks in-platform automation, relying heavily on email instead, which delays support, slows onboarding, and impacts the employee experience.

Hire wherever you want, we mean it

Deel has our own entities, payroll infrastructure, and in-house experts in many countries. Ontop is limited to hiring in just a few countries and relies on partners, creating a negative employee experience and increasing delays and risks.

Put your information in good hands

Information security is one of Deel's top priorities, given the sensitive nature of the information we gather, store, and continuously manage. Ontop lacks basic security measures, indicating it may not be operating securely.

Handle everything HR in one place

Deel consolidates everything for managing a global team, so you can cut costs, save time, and scale confidently. While Ontop offers a solution to hire and pay workers, it lacks other key HR functions, requiring other tools that are costly and demand duplicate work.

Rely on fast, in-house support

Deel provides in-house support that's fast, reliable, and multi-channel. Ontop offers only chat support with slow response times, often with delays for urgent issues like terminations or payroll-related queries.

Multi-channel support 24/7 in-app chat for you and your teams: Email, WhatsApp, Phone, Call back requests, Video calls, Slack for enterprises
