CINCINNATI, OH (PRWEB) September 19, 2016

Bob Coughlin, Paycor CEO, was named Cool Tech Champion 2016 at Cincy Magazine’s second annual Cool Tech Awards on Wednesday, September 14, 2016. The event was started in 2015 to showcase the success of technology in business in Cincinnati.

The Cool Tech Champion Award is given to one individual in the Tristate who has promoted, developed and/or implemented technology to help businesses succeed. When Coughlin founded Paycor in 1990, the company was a payroll services provider. Fast forward 26 years later, the company has become a leader in human capital management (HCM) services that go beyond just payroll, and include HR, Benefits Administration, Time and Attendance and Applicant Tracking.

“If you don’t lead with technology, you can’t give clients what they want,” says Coughlin. He and Paycor have been committed to providing an industry-leading user experience through software and design. To support this focus, Paycor has expanded its Product Development and IT teams by nearly 40 percent over the last two years.

Cintrifuse CEO, Wendy Lea said, "There is a lot of positive energy around the Cincinnati startup ecosystem right now. It's great for us to recognize, and remember, the entrepreneurs like Bob that have already succeeded in this area. I'm really proud to have a technology "startup" in our backyard that is $150MM+ in annual revenue and that continues to give back to the community."
