    Transformation

    relog GmbH changed from a distribution company to a service provider for current payroll and salary administration. The initial investment for the Nixdorf wage COMET program and associated hardware equipment was only worth the money for larger companies. Interest in a capable and cost-efficient way to execute current wage and salary payments, however, was also expressed early on by small or medium-sized enterprises. Due to the increasing demand of these clients relog GmbH took over as the current payroll and salary administration service provider for those enterprises. In the years up to 1989, there was a successive change from relog GmbH being a distributor of hardware and software of Nixdorf Computer AG, to a service provider for current payroll and salary administration.
