Likelihood to Recommend

Gusto

I would definitely recommend Gusto for employers that have 50 or fewer employees. I can see Gusto becoming a little cumbersome above that many employees. It is also best for employers who only have employees in the US. As an international company, we have to use a separate system for our international employees. However, Gusto makes payroll and benefits management so easy! And employee onboarding is a breeze!

UZIO

UZIO has been a lifesaver for us as a broker and for our clients. It saves everyone time and is a very user-friendly system for all users. We have always received very positive feedback from the employee users. Eliminating the need for paper documents is a necessity in the digital world today and UZIO has made that possible.

Gusto

  • Simple, clean, and accessible layout for both management and employees
  • Multiple other services and features offered including early pay, benefits, vacation, and owners draw options

Cons

Gusto

  • One issue that we've run into with Gusto are some limitations around certain kinds of withholdings from contractor pay. We've had to employ some manual work arounds.
  • When we switched from semi-monthly to an every 2 week payroll, we experienced an issue with Gusto where the payroll days are slightly out of sync. This is another minor issue that we manually work around.

UZIO

  • You are currently unable to add a international address.
  • Electronic EOI capability is not available.
  • Does not allow retirement elections to be made/added at this time.

While Gusto does have a few flaws on the whole it is a very user-friendly software that does a great job of making a very complicated and mundane task quite easy and it is also very cost-effective. But I find that it is not a great fit for everyone and there have been a few mistakes in the payroll tax filings that have caused me and my clients some concern

The UI is clean and simple. It's incredibly easy to find what you need to find, and if you can't, a quick search of their help files will direct you where you need to go about 90% of the time. For that last 10%, a support e-mail will result in a quick answer. Almost any time I try to do something new I haven't done before with Gusto, I can do it in a few minutes.

In rare times that we had to reach out to support they are fast and friendly and always eager to assist. Says a lot of software when you do not have to reach out to support very often. Quick and easy access to support channels makes it pain-free when you do encounter an issue.

Alternatives Considered

Gusto

Gusto had a few more features than other competitors for their price. For example, with ADP if we wanted time tracking that synced with Payroll, we'd probably have to pay double what we are paying for Gusto.We did have a free payroll provider for a while, but they were actually not very good. We had to go through several steps to complete payroll that ended up wasting time and they didn't complete our annual filings, whereas Gusto will do those for us.

UZIO

We have used StaffOne's portal. UZIO is much more intuitive and user friendly.
