During its initial years, the company developed its own payroll software to address the needs of its accounting software customers. However, Mustard Seedhad atough time in marketing its product in an overcrowded product industry. The first phase of product development was also cumbersome to a large extent that affected its initial growth cycle. To overcome that, Mustard Seed, instead of using standard approach of customizing the software, focused on having a payroll solution which could be universally used in different industries. “Our initial offerings of various accounting software paved way for the creation of Payroll Pro,” expounds Osler Fajardo. It collaborated with its first few clients to address the issues and develop products.
