Augmented Intelligence Unity is always working in innovation. Now, we have our new tool development: Ingrid Payroll Calculator. Karl Buitrago, the leader of the project, explain to us what is about.
“Ingrid is the result of the combination of two words: Intelligent Grid and arose from the growing trend of the use of virtual assistants, cases such as Amazon’s Alexa, Microsoft’s Cortana or Apple’s Siri were a source of inspiration to bring iNgRID to life”, started the economist.
“Ingrid is a system of computer tools linked together based on artificial and human intelligence where massive data management together with the professional experience of our clients and employees greatly enhance the achievement of objectives and the creation of assistance and business outsourcing solutions”, said later the leader.
Ingrid Payroll Calculator’s development
One of these tools is the Ingrid Payroll Calculator. “The GCE payroll buyers have been growing in demand for speedy and very Precise services special for international hiring. That demand pushed us to look for a solution”. With this focus, Karl and his team began the work. “At the beginning, there are always few financial resources available”, Karl confessed. That’s why the project itself has to discover a greater probability of success and this should generate greater resources to continue carrying it out.
Speaking especially about the process, the project leader said: “We choose to use non-code solutions that maximize the use of resources, prioritize the practical knowledge of any art over the knowledge of programming language or technical requirements of software engineering”. “This allowed us to involve payroll and labor law specialists in the development team, building the model under our guidance”, continued.
“The important thing in any development is to have good planning and DATA”, continued Buitrago. “Once this planning was clear, we put together a multidisciplinary team with lawyers, political scientists, economists, and communicators, among other disciplines, with only two professionals linked to the technological world”, added.
The base, following the specialist, is in three pillars:
- 1. Strong leadership focused on directing, training and motivating the team.
- 2. A culture of rigorous experimentation where the error was a normal part of the solution; and
- 3. An effective division of objectives, with one group responsible for design and construction, another for research, evaluation and correction of results, and another for team management and training.
Thinking about challenges, Karl explained that the biggest challenge overcame was psychological because, for most of the team, it was the first time they were integrated into a software development project. That’s the explanation of where was his great investment. “Our biggest investment was in people”, assure the leader. Teaching how to use no-code tools was a key moment of the process.

“The payroll calculator is right now able to make estimated calculations for your payment and international hiring in more than 231 countries and with more than 200 currencies”, explained the economist. The information that you get is verified and constantly updated.
“In only three steps and less than a minute, you get your quotations in your hands”, Karl detailed. It is very intuitive and reliable. Everybody can use it, but “is useful for example, for human Resources departments to investigate the legislation around the world”.
