Definitiv, Roy Mellon, Chief Executive

Definitiv is a Payroll and HR software company inaugurated in 2013 by Chief Executive, Roy Mellon. Roy risked everything and decided to create an ERP for People meeting the modern needs of enterprises today and in the future. After three years of development, the Definitiv platform officially launched in October 2016 as Australia’s first 100% locally built, enterprise cloud-based payroll software. 14 months since the launch, Definitiv has grown to manage 130 companies, support 15,000 employees and process over $500 million in payments. Definitiv’s diverse client list includes ASX top 10 companies and has software partnerships with accountancy firms; Carbon Group and Moore Stephens.

100% cloud-based, Definitiv’s simple, effective and powerful solution creates significant efficiencies in the Payroll and HR functions. An ERP for People, Definitiv enables businesses to achieve optimal return on their biggest assets; their employees. A defining factor of design is dictated by payroll professionals who are involved in payroll daily and understand the profession complexities. Having a payroll service division processing payroll for businesses in different industries across Australia provides the advantage behind the platform’s success.

Definitiv is a modern product built with new technologies and is not impacted by legacy systems, making it an agile and verstatile software product in the market. Definitiv’s head office is based in Perth, Australia. The company has 20 staff, across software development, payroll and projects teams.
