History of Nugget

A highly reliable payroll and HR system with a thirty-year tradition.

Today, Nugget is one of the largest payroll and HR systems on the Czech and Slovak market and is used by over 400 clients from domestic and international companies across industries.

Our story began in the mid-1970s, when the five founders of Nugget worked together in a semi-state IT company in the engineering industry. In 1992, they decided to start their own development company and while working on a foreign system project for our market, they realized the need for a local payroll module. This was because the big foreign “software packages” at the time often included payroll, but their solutions were not applicable to our market. So the company came up with their own and almost didn’t sell their solution. Steep growth followed. Sales and customer numbers doubled every year and Nugget quickly became the market leader.

The big milestone came in 2000 when a new version of the system was launched for Windows. The new version was again very successful, attracting another segment of customers and ensuring growth for years to come. Even in the new millennium, the company was still among the top 3 systems in the country. In 2006, Nugget expanded its offering to include payroll outsourcing. A number of existing clients also switched to this and many are still outsourcing in this way today.

In the following years, an advanced version of the system was developed with communication via web services.

For the next few years Nugget continued to grow, but the market situation was changing. Times began to favour the larger providers. Smaller local companies found it harder to compete with the big players in tenders, especially if the client was a large international company. Nugget started looking for a strong international partner to work with and be more competitive.

This he eventually found in the international consulting network RSM, which Nugget bought in July 2019. The integration was completed in January 2020, when Nugget was renamed RSM Payroll Solutions CZ. Although almost 30 years have passed since Nugget was founded, most of the founders and original developers are still actively working for Nugget, contributing in no small part to its further development and, together with a new part of the team, making sure that clients receive better and better services.

Thanks to this almost 30-year tradition and an experienced team that trusts and knows its product very well, Nugget is highly stable and reliable.

Many of the 400 companies have been with Nugget for a long time, including well-known names such as Pivovary Staropramen, Laufen, Jika, Danone, Trellerborg, Plzeňský Prazdroj, Mercedes Benz, Unilever, Radio Free Europe, PricewaterhouseCoopers, NN Pojistovna, Porsche ČR and many others.
