Overall Satisfaction with TriNet
We use Trinet for our payroll processing, Medical and Dental Benefits, 401K, and HR for assistance. I have been with my company for over 4 years and the company has been using Trinet since 2016. The online processing is simple along with the onboarding of new employees. Of all the payroll companies I have used in other jobs this one is simple and straightforward. They answer questions as they arise. Very professional with their clients. Trinet being a PEO company is best to use as the HR laws are cumbersome and keep changing. They have all the tools we need available to use. They take care of the taxes and reporting. Their reports are simple to use and during PPP they had sample reports to use and enter our information. They keep their clients apprised of new laws or changes for HR or Payroll.
- Payroll processing
- Communication via email with their clients
- payroll reports
- To have some reports readily available like SOC
- Workers comp reporting to have access in the reports
- Cobra information if former employees opt-in having that information available in the reports section would help
Whenever I had questions I would email or call and ask, say for instance when figuring out an employee's final check when termination of employment. Customer support has assisted in the way they process each day's pay. Trinet has helped with the HR processes by having self onboarding and the handbooks they have in the system are basic and we can add our own supplemental processes like how vacation hours are accumulated.
From other payroll companies' platforms, I have used, Trinet is user-friendly. It is easy to learn by oneself without assistance. If you have a question or need assistance they will help. For the most part, no assistance is needed with using their platform. I would recommend this to most people.
- HR less time spent on all the laws and they have kept us inform
- Processing payroll takes less time
- Fees are a bit high for a small business
With Covid 19 pandemic, they have the PPP reports ready for us to use and we just needed to enter the dates on the reports to fill out the applications. They have given us a recovery credit which has helped in the fees expense area. They have had Webinars to teach how the forms work in filling out to apply for PPP loans and Loan forgiveness as well.

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.
Their platform is simple to use and user-friendly. Administrators have access to employee info which is good. All reports are in the reports section and you can customize the reports to fit your payroll periods and what you want to see on the reports. They have custom reports you can build your own. I have not tried it yet. It can integrate with your accounting software depending on which one you use. Yet it will not work for all clients if they have more than one Chart of account numbers for their payroll in their accounting system. So having that to work for clients on how they break down their payroll in the system would be helpful, for example, expenses. In payroll, it is entered as 1 number, but that one number in the expense report employees submit tends to be broken down to more than one Chart of Account. So that integration with clients' accounting software would not help.
