Paycom Software Inc. has opened a new office and data center in Grapevine, Texas.

The Oklahoma City-based payroll and human resource technology provider held an opening ceremony for its new Tarrant County operations center this week.

Construction on the four-story, 150,000 square-foot (13,900 sqm) operations center began in the spring of 2019. The new 14-acre campus includes a fitness center, cafeteria, and Uptime Certified Tier IV data center.

“As we continue to grow, it is vital for us to attract and retain dedicated talent to develop cutting-edge products, deliver outstanding customer service and transform how people do business,” said Chad Richison, Paycom founder and CEO.

“Seeing the operations center come to life and now officially open is a milestone for both Paycom and the community,” said Grapevine Mayor William D. Tate. “To have a top-caliber employer like Paycom recognize that we’re a great place to help grow your business is something we can all be proud of.”

Paycom announced it was relocating from Dallas to Grapevine in 2018. Clyde Riggs Construction was general contractor on the project. Specifications for the new data center weren't shared, but HEC Hargrove Electric says the site includes two 3MW backup gen-sets in an N+1 configuration.

Paycom operates two data centers owned and managed by the company at its 500,000 square-foot (46,450 sqm) campus corporate headquarters in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, which opened in 2011. An SEC filing from last year also shows the company leases a disaster recovery site in downtown Oklahoma City.

The company also operates a data center at a leased property near Dallas, Texas, but previous SEC filings suggest the company may be looking to exit that facility and relocate its operations to the new Grapevine site now it is complete.

One of Paycom’s Oklahoma facilities – listed as DC2 – is certified Tier III with Uptime.

Paycom is also planning another building at its Oklahoma City headquarters; the project will cost between $60 million and $70 million and will take two years to complete, according to the company’s annual report.
