I would say to keep searching if you find yourself considering Insperity. In the past several companies I've been at, every single HCM software has been better. I find myself not looking at information as often as I used to. I would view a paystub or look to see how many days off I have left in other roles. Here, I find the time needed to navigate that information is not worth it.

TriNet is well suited for a smaller organization - the support they provide is really quite good.If an organization has their own special benefits plans, i.e. deferred compensation that TriNet didn't "write," sometimes it can be a bit cumbersome to implement within the TriNet system.

TriNet

  • TriNet benefit offerings are very good. The team assigned to help with everything from plan design and cost through employee Open Enrollment is strong.
  • TriNet's platform is acceptable in today's market - there are areas in which integration could be stronger, but they are on the plus side of what we need and open to feedback and enhancements.
  • TriNet was and continues to be cost-effective. They have a straightforward, transparent method of charging for services.

Cons

Insperity PerformSmart

No answers on this topic

TriNet

  • The app. The are adding some admin features but I would like to be able to do more.
  • The ability to customize the dashboard. The ability to see employee birthdays.
  • As an administrator, when I log in, I want to have it default to the admin/manager tab. It would be a nice feature since that it typically the tab I always go to.
  • The ability for employees to congratulate others on promotions, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

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.

It is very easy to use for inputting payroll, however it isn't as flexible as an ADP when it comes to making adjustments to employee payroll for expense reimbursements. It works great for the TriNet expense platform from both an employee and approval process. The PTO tracker is also a great tool and easy to use. Benefits renewal is also an easy process

Never connected with anyone that either couldn't answer the question or didn't know exactly who to transfer me to. Their help with the technology platform has been stellar, even providing screen grabs of the system so we aren't guessing about how to follow the bulleted steps. Any time we have a question about processes, we can easily drop an email or pick up the phone and the TriNet team is accessible and usually answers the call with the first connection - no long line of automated selections

Someone familiar with benefits and human resources should be in charge of the implementation. It is a human resource platform.

Alternatives Considered

Insperity PerformSmart

I've used many HCM systems in the past. The things I do most are view paystub, view my accrued time off and request time off. Sometimes submit expenses. Here, I find myself staying away from those things. In fact, the company can submit expenses here but they choose to use an excel instead because of how NON user-friendly it is.

When Astrolabe was founded we used Gusto. They have a slick portal and they are significantly cheaper than TriNet (order of magnitude or more). Unfortunately, Gusto does not provide small companies (less than 5 employees) with benefits or any concrete HR services other than payroll, which dictated our switch.

  • Time - TriNet has helped reduce the amount of time spent on basic administrative tasks like processing vacation requests and employee address changes.
  • Onboarding - New hire onboarding is no longer a daunting task of signing endless paperwork and forms. With new hire enrollment and acknowledgment all via the portal, the process is extremely quick and easy!
