Since the startup was founded in 2017, it has been using business software from KLARA. Thanks to this straightforward, web-based and time-saving solution, accounting and payroll information can be updated in no time at all.

Background and challenges

Green fingers with AI
Oxygen at Work Ltd offers its customers a comprehensive range of office greenery that is tailored towards health and well-being. Special sensors are used to measure and analyse a number of different parameters, and the greenery is gradually optimized. The plants selected by gardeners and biologists produce oxygen, regulate air humidity and, thanks to careful nurturing, are a real treat for the eyes. This leads to palpable improvements in the office climate and in employee well-being.

Rapid growth
Last year, two new locations were opened in Munich and Berlin, and the number of employees rose from 30 to 40 during the first five months of this year. Despite this rapid expansion, Oxygen at Work wants to maintain streamlined structures. This is because the three founding partners would rather be talking to customers than sitting at their desks – even though their own offices are of course filled with lush vegetation and fresh air.

The solution

Web-based and fast
Streamlined structures and a relaxed working environment are key at Oxygen at Work. This is why the company has been using business software from KLARA since it was founded in 2017. “Particularly important aspects to me were location-independent access, a high degree of automation and as little time wastage as possible,” says CEO Manuel Winter. Until recently, he handled the accounting himself, but this has now has been outsourced to an external fiduciary office.

The qualified economist also handled payroll himself for quite some time. However, this task has now been passed to KLARA Payroll. And very successfully, too, as Manuel Winter explains: “It now takes me a maximum of five minutes a month to do a brief accounting check. Some of our employees are subject to tax at source, and others have expenses and workloads that fluctuate on a monthly basis. KLARA handles all of these issues with ease, and if we do get an entry wrong, it’s quick and easy to correct.”
