How the product works

Collected from the source of truth

We integrate with your HRIS and cap table to ensure accurate data that never goes stale.

Consolidated, leveled, & anonymized

Our data is consolidated to a standard leveling framework. Benchmarking can never be traced back to an individual or employee.

Stored securely

We only store necessary information, and all data is encrypted both in transit and at rest. We follow the guidelines of the General Data Protection Regulation of May 2018.

Flexible for how you do compensation

Use Pave's intuitive tool to slice data by company stage, location, role, level, and more.

Save time from spreadsheets, spend time where it matters

Pave connects directly to source-of-truth systems, levels your employees, and saves you the hassle of wrangling spreadsheets. Validate our data with the click of a button and move on to your higher priorities.

Built-in job descriptions to ensure you’re referencing the right benchmark

Expert vetted job and level definitions so you always know you're pulling the right data. Still have questions? Compare multiple roles side-by-side to triangulate on the right offer. Prepare and empower you mangers to have sensitive conversions.

Stay ahead of the market

We mean it when we say real-time. 100% of our data is pulled from the compensation source of truth. Our benchmarks are responsive to movement in the market to ensure you stay ahead of the curve with competitive compensation.
