Overall Satisfaction with Gusto

We use Gusto to process biweekly payroll and keep track of all employee data. Gusto makes entry and tracking of employee hours incredibly easy and helped me as the owner to get myself onto a consistent pay schedule as opposed to taking intermittent owner draws.
  • User-friendly interface
  • Email reminders to take action
  • Ease of loading and updating employee information
  • Reporting
  • Would like to see easier recording and tracking for our 1099 employee hours
  • Payroll distribution
  • Employee details
  • Accounting interface
  • Increased administrative time to spend on strategic responsibilities
  • Heightened trust payroll was being handled properly
  • Reduced time spent fixing payroll discrepancies for employees
  • Increased confidence in onboarding new staff
  • Heartland Payroll+
Heartland was cumbersome to load employee data into the system for the first run, took longer to adhere to direct deposit, and made it extremely difficult to fix a system error that resulted in incorrect payments.

Gusto is well suited for any company looking to outsource payroll, regardless of size. It is incredibly easy to use and interfaces with my accountant, taking extra work off my plate.
