When is Option Impact being transitioned to Pave?
We plan to transition Option Impact on January 3, 2024.
When will I have access to Option Impact until?
You will have access to Option Impact via optionimpact.com until January 3, 2024 at 10am PST/ 1pm EST, provided your data submission is up-to-date. If you are a Pave Benchmarking customer, you will also have access to Option Impact data as a part of the holistic dataset. On January 3, 2024, remaining Option Impact survey data will only be accessible as part of the Pave dataset.
Why is Option Impact being transitioned to Pave?
At Pave, we believe that the best way to ensure fair compensation is by providing companies with real-time market data. After Pave acquired Option Impact in summer 2022, more than 2,000 Option Impact users have adopted Pave to access real-time, verified compensation benchmarks. As users have shifted from Option Impact to Pave, the volume of data available in Option Impact has significantly decreased making much of the application nonfunctional. Which is why, on January 3, 2024, Option Impact will be discontinued. All users of Option Impact will have ongoing access to Pave’s free benchmarking data by integrating their HRIS/payroll and equity systems with the Pave platform. If you haven't yet, you can join the thousands of Option Impact users who now use Pave for up-to-date, verified compensation benchmarks.

What if I am not able to integrate with Pave?
Similar to other compensation benchmarking surveys, Pave operates on a give-to-get model. The key difference with Pave, is that data is shared via real-time HR integrations rather than an annual process of manual data entry. In order to ensure 100% real-time data, Pave requires that participating companies opt-in to the data network by integrating their HRIS and/or Cap Table systems.
