Avory & Co, in their Q4 2020 Investor Letter said that they acquired a position in Paycom Software, Inc. (NYSE: PAYC), and continues to believe in the promising future of the company. Paycom Software, Inc. is an online payroll and human resource technology company that currently has a $23.6 billion market cap. For the past 3 months, PAYC delivered an 8.40% return and settled at $410.22 per share at the closing of January 25th.

Here is what Avory & Co has to say about Paycom Software, Inc. in their Investor Letter:

“We acquired shares of Paycom in mid-March as the pandemic left payroll providers down nearly 40-60% in a couple short weeks. Chad Richison, Paycom’s founder and CEO revamped his sales approach to complete internal sales. This company has historically been a boot on the ground sales culture. This shift led to shorter sales cycles, record pipeline, and lower cost of customer acquisition. The management team adapted quickly and their real-time changes are now permanent fixes in the business.”
