I am able to see all the HR details about my employment through this app:
  • Manage my organization profile.
  • Add my certificates and details.
  • Process my performance evaluation.
  • Apply leaves and fill the timesheet.
  • Search any employee of the organization and find their role, team, hierarchy.
  • View any tax letters, HR letters, etc.

I think [TriNet] is a great platform for payroll and benefits as well as expense tracking and reimbursements and PTO tracking. I wish there was a way to enter payroll adjustments without having employee sign off sheets.Communications have broken down since we had our point of contact removed.

Pros

Darwinbox

  • Easy to use and navigate.
  • Simple and intuitive interface.
  • Covers all HR needs in one software.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

TriNet

  • Communication. Although we are one of the many organizations who benefit from TriNet's services, they make us feel like we are their only client with how quickly and effectively they communicate with us.
  • Benefits. Before moving to TriNet, we were not able to offer the amount of benefits TriNet has to offer for the cost paid.
  • Employee Discounts. While we are a small company, we can still offer employee discounts through the TriNet Market Place for things our employees use every day. (Travel discounts, flowers, electronics, memberships, etc.)

Cons

Darwinbox

No answers on this topic

TriNet

  • We recently had an instance of separation from the parent company retirement program and the migration from their platform to a new, stand-alone platform took months longer than expected.
  • The recent change in market/economic conditions has caused a loss of Human Capital within TriNet causing some extended wait times and a slight loss in communication as compared to 4+ months ago.

For all the reasons given in this review, we are highly likely to renew with TriNet, as it supports our key business objectives. Fingers crossed that TriNet will offer better options in the near future for managing independent contractors, so we can manage our entire workforce in one place.

TriNet offers an excellent portal for both employers and employees. As the former, I used it to survey my payroll, institute benefits, and other HR policies, and generate reports (such as SBA reports). As an employee, it seamlessly took me through the benefits enrollment process, generation of W-2, and other common HR tasks.

TriNet has an amazing team of knowledgable and helpful customer service representatives. I have confidence in the TriNet team whenever I need to reach out for assistance. From an HR perspective, I can rest easy knowing my TriNet team is there to support my agency and ensure we are covered from a compliance standpoint. On the technology side, the TriNet platform never disappoints - the system is constantly being updated and is incredibly user friendly.

The system used to be much less user-friendly when they were called Ambrose. As of the last couple years, it's gotten to a point where the site is very user-friendly, so it's definitely much easier to use the site and all new employees don't need a lot of time to get familiar with the site.

I can't find the listings or products (and don't really care) that other PEOs use.
I did compare TriNet against Administaff, Oasis, Paychex and ChoiceHR
TriNet was much more affordable for me than any of them and let me offload the time as well as get the advantage of top-notch benefits for my staff.

Return on Investment

Darwinbox

  • The ability to view the organization structure and functional structure for the entire company.
  • One-stop solution for talent acquisition, payroll, leaves, reimbursements, attendance (time-sheet), holidays, etc. So I don't have to open a lot of different apps.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

TriNet

  • TriNet allows employees to access their own information and help themselves, reducing the amount of time and energy our HR department has to spend on paychecks and benefits.
  • TriNet helped simplify and streamline the onboarding process. It was very easy to provide my tax documents, employee details, and employee verification.
  • The TriNet marketplace offers employees additional benefits beyond the company's (e.g., discounts on movie tickets), which increases employee happiness.
