The Linux Foundation

The Linux Foundation started using SimplyMerit in 2020 with approximately 200 employees. Today, they use SimplyMerit and additional services offered by MorganHR. According to their Sr. HR Manager, in the next compensation cycle, they are “looking forward to using spreadsheets even less.”

Our Customer

The Linux Foundation is a non-profit technology consortium founded in 2000 as a merger between Open Source Development Labs and the Free Standards Group to standardize Linux, support its growth, and promote its commercial adoption.

We sat down with their team to learn about The Linux Foundation’s experience with SimplyMerit.

The Challenge

“Before SimplyMerit, managing the comp. cycle was extremely time consuming because of the error prone nature of using spreadsheets.”

The Linux Foundation was looking for a tool to help manage their Salary and Bonus cycles. They needed an compensation planning solution that saved them time.

Our Solution

“Before SimplyMerit, our managers struggled making recommendations on time and in spreadsheets.”

SimplyMerit allowed Linux to streamline their Salary and Bonus cycle process while eliminating time spent in spreadsheets while also being less error prone.


“Working with SimplyMerit was a great experience, it felt like we were a part of the team. We liked how customizable the display fields are. We were able to provide additional information to the managers”

Success with SimplyMerit

“SimplyMerit was simpler and more efficient than managing our comp cycles in spreadsheets, less error prone too.”
