Zenefits

Zenefits is great for new businesses and smaller teams that need a quick platform to start recording their employees documents and generating reports, payroll and time worked. It is easy to use for a small HR team and helps keep everything in compliance. Larger companies (100 employees or more) might take too much small micromanaging to utilize this system on a regular basis

Cons

Zenefits

  • Zenefits does not allow for customization of reports so instead of seeing just the data I need I have to select from a pre-set menu of options.
  • Zenefits does not integrate with our 401k provider or our project time and tracking system so the amount of manual entry to create a payroll gets old fast
  • The Bulk upload payroll feature does not include enough options for data upload.
  • Pay Period and Check Date settings cannot be customized to fit the structure of our company, they are too restrictive.

Alternatives Considered

Zenefits

Significantly cheaper and way more featuresWe almost went with Workforce as it had all the same features as Zenefits and seemed even more customizable, however, the cost was completely over the top and nowhere near what we were looking to spend on this. The goal was to reduce cost and add functionality which Zenefits accomplished.

Return on Investment

Zenefits

  • We were able to drastically cut down our bill for Payroll
  • Has given us a system to allow hourly employees to clock in/out and reduce the hours collecting this data
  • Tracks PTO more effectively than any system we previously tried
