Just Works has been fabulous! Not only have we saved money we have received excellent service and attentions. We feel very important to them as a client. In addition, their platform is simple and very intuitive. A fantastic overall customer experience. I'm hoping Trinet can ;earn from them on the issues I mentioned earlier.

Very bottom of the list - I did not select TriNet, as I joined the company after it had already been implemented and in use for some time. If I had been involved, Rippling and/or Zenefits would have been my top choices due to their wide breadth of HR/Payroll/People support products.

Rippling is far superior in my personal opinion. Rippling has a better user interface and a more modern feel. TriNet was old school and could use a refresh. Other features that I prefer are the ability to access anything from insurance docs to retirement links in Rippling. Both platforms have great security but overall, I prefer Rippling.

TriNet worked with our smaller employee headcount and offered coverage for both the US and Canada. And we switched from Insperity because of the cost savings which were significant. I liked Insperity but TriNet has been an excellent firm to work with as well.

Best HRIS Hands Down.

Trinet beats any other HRIS I have used by being easier to use, managed better, and much more employee-friendly. I know I can trust them, and they are open and responsive. While many HRIS companies seem flashy, TriNet keeps it simple but effective and user intuitive. Everyone in our organization loves them.

We liked Zenefits however at the time of the review - we had more contractors than employees so wasn't able to move forward with them. Now that we have more employees than contractors, Trinet has since acquired Zenefits so hopefully some of their great features will be available. TriNet is great for larger companies.

ADP is more complicated and not user friendly and they have too many different packages and not one size that Trinet has. The support with ADP is less desirable. The support with Trinet has been superb. With ADP you have to shop for the Benefits packages and 401k packages. With Trinet they take care of that and employees pick what they want.

Coming from an 1800 person company to a 30 person company, it is very different. I can see how a platform like TriNet is better as it already has the basics available to you. Workday was a great platform however needed a-lot of technical assistance with getting things going - this is something that would not be helpful to a small company whom may not have the employee base to help assist with some of the integrations and technical support required. However, TriNet has that already done for you.

Compared to Zenefits, I would never hire Zenefits again. Their customer support is nonexistent. I often felt that they really didn't care about my company. After migrating to TriNet, it was night and day. Employees are more satisfied with the online and mobile tools TriNet offers, the benefits are better, etc.

The other service company we have used is "AAP" or American Automated Payroll. AAP was the only other company I would ever switch to if we were to leave TriNet. Same level of customer service, interactive listening, and also product quality. I worked with them for over 4 years at a previous company and they also do an excellent job. I would say TriNet is their equal and that is a high honor!
