President, Founder, CEO
Alistair Maclean started the company Payroll on the Web alongside his wife and Co-Founder JoLynn Maclean. The company evolved and progressed substantially since its inception in 1998. The idea and opportunity stemmed from a long résumé of experience in the Restaurant and Hospitality Industry and a keenness for technology.
Alistair acquired a Bachelor of Science in Catering and Foods Service Systems in his native country of England at Sheffield Hallam University. It is through his business of One Potato, Two Potato that he partnered with a niche oven manufacturer to promote and sell their products overseas which eventually brought Alistair to California.
Once here, he met a business partner and opened a restaurant where he met his wife-to-be JoLynn. The computer and technology boom of the 90s was just what Alistair needed to take his merit to a new level.
It is this paired set of expertise and experience that made him the perfect candidate for Restaurant System Specialist for Jack in the Box, supporting over 150 restaurants in CA and NV. Through his own vision and ingenuity, he created and improved systems to track the overall operations of the businesses. He built interfaces in the companies programs which led to creating a full-scale Payroll Software. As a result, AliMac PC Services was born, later known as Payroll on the Web.

experience that has complimented Alistair's experience and helped to

for American Roller Skating League.

technology passion, and her over 12 years of retail management
experience they were a perfect pair to let their entrepreneurial
After working for Emporium, JoLynn opened her own day care
business. While owning and operating her business she also began
doing payroll for one small franchise in the East Bay Area.
Having an aptitude for the numbers and the payroll processing,

services for a 27-location franchise.
When the time came and Alistair formed Alimac PC Services JoLynn
worked by his side performing any task needed, keeping the books and
running the operation as he expanded the technology and offerings.
Today, JoLynn is an integral part of Payroll on the Web. She's more
