Workload Launches New Service: Automating Office Work for Small Businesses

Workload helps small businesses compete with large corporations by automating repetitive software tasks.
Press Release – updated: Jan 15, 2020 10:00 EST

SAN FRANCISCO, January 15, 2020 ( – In March of 2019, entrepreneurs Bryan Golkhajeh and Mike Bodnyk set out to create a startup that helps small businesses. They worked tirelessly on reiterating ideas from the basement and spare rooms of their homes. They interviewed small business owners and startups to ask questions about their job processes and how much time was spent doing repetitive tasks on a computer. The answers were shocking. Almost all responses were met with frustration at the number of manual software related tasks they did at the office. 
That’s how Workload came to be! Workload automates software related tasks at affordable prices for small businesses and startups to help them compete against large-scale enterprises.
“We began studying the automation and software integration market and discovered that while the software tools that currently exist are easy to use, small businesses and startups don’t have the time or skills to use the tools to their advantage,” said Bryan Golkhajeh, the co-founder and CEO of Workload.
The problem facing many small companies is they lose a lot of productivity by doing manual and repetitive tasks when they should be doing activities related to their core business, like talking to customers. In order to scale their business, they need to hire more people to handle the increasing tasks and processes. The way Workload works is simple: a phone call or email leads to a quick interview to learn about the task you want automated. Workload calculates the project cost with a small monthly management fee and gets to work. The team of experts at Workload do everything for you by designing, building, and managing the code to automate your tasks.
“A lot of people are aware that what they’re doing can and should be automated, but they continue doing it the old way because the learning curve to automating can be very steep,” said Mike Bodnyk, co-founder of Workload. “That’s where we come in. For a very small price, you can automate your business or startup team’s tasks.” 
Workload’s customers are already seeing the benefits of automating repetitive tasks. Atrium, the legal technology company founded by Justin Kan (former co-founder of Twitch), is one such customer. Startups like Atrium are often challenged by doing more without the resources of a larger enterprise. They have to think creatively, and automating repetitive tasks for their recruiting team was something Workload was happy to take on. The faster and more efficient a startup can hire talent, the faster they can reach their target growth.
Workload helps small businesses compete with large corporations by automating repetitive software tasks. Workload knows the software needed to get the job done so you can focus on loving your customers. Workload has offices in Oakland, CA and Portland, OR and provides services to startup teams and business owners from all across the United States.
