Gusto
I think if you are a small business, with anywhere from 0-50 employees, Gusto is a good choice. If you start getting bigger than that, it might not be the right tool. To me, it feels best suited for that range of employees. It isn't that it couldn't work with more, I just don't know that I feel like that is who it was made for.

Keka HR is well suited for me as it helps me to manage my taxes and gives me different investment options within the web application itself which allows me to save income tax. It keeps track of all the investments, deductions, taxes etc. Scenario where I found Keka HR less appropriate is there Article section. Companies have their own Newsletter Page where they publish their Articles which everyone reads. But Article section within Keka HR, I didn't found that much useful.

Pros
Gusto
  • The punch clock is no-nonsense, very simple, and has all of the relevant information displayed in an easy-to-read layout that doesn't overwhelm the viewer.
  • Overall, the user interface for every page is extremely intuitive. I have had no issues finding or making changes to any information I'd need to access.

Cons
Gusto
  • Have an "auto breaks" option to make it easier to add break times (e.g., "30-minute lunch break") to the schedule when inputting hours.
  • Ability to revise pre-existed time off requests (of course, would still need updated approval) instead of having to delete the request/start over entirely (e.g., if the time off request extends from 1 to 2 hours).

Unless they break it, I'm never leaving. It's just too easy. Gusto is also really affordable, and for what I pay, it's worth having the historical record within the system. I like that I can go back and pull up W2's for year's past. This sort of easy access reporting, has been helpful especially when getting reports for PPP loans.

Usability
Gusto
I gave Gusto this rating because overall, it is an excellent, versatile program that allows for optimal success and encourages productivity as a whole. In terms of tracking pay and monitoring a person's spending habits (consumer insights), it is spot on for that. However, one feature that it lacks and needs to improve is the benefits package, which is not really good for me. It provides me with next to nothing in terms of benefits. The only benefit it gives me is prescriptions, which is pretty much it. I enjoy the ability to clock time in and out while working remotely. I also like the organization feature of seeing all the coworkers working in your company, which is great because it allows for me to get to know everyone's name.

Gusto
Gusto's customer service has really deteriorated lately and they seem to have really changed their focus. It used to be when you called you were routed to an individual who knew about payroll, benefits, reporting, etc. but now you get someone who seems to have not received the correct training. My last call about a dismissal payroll took me over an hour of my time and the person still could not help me and finally transferred me to someone else.

Gusto has a glitch-free on-boarding process that surpasses all of the other systems that I have ever tried and used. Rippling is the only other platform that comes close to the Gusto online experience, but Rippling has its PEO/behind-the-scenes legacy system glitches, and it's not nearly as user friendly as Gusto. Gusto's reports are THE best compared with all the other platforms that I have tried.

This service is very optimistic and creates a reliable and smooth environment within organizations. Organizations can easily figure out the performance of every individual. It became easy to send financial reports for every employee through Keka HR, and it has a robust payroll system which is very helpful for the HR and account department.

Return on Investment
Gusto
  • After a recent glitch with the payroll processing system, employees were forced to accept paper checks for a few weeks while Gusto's technical support team figured out the problem. This led to some employees being forced to miss work and lose money while having to deal with an antiquated paper check process.
