Overall Satisfaction with Zenefits

Zenefits was being used throughout our entire org since we did not have an HR/Benefits person at the time. It allowed us to enroll in health insurance, eye insurance, very basic personal information. All new employees and existing would go on it to make changes to their benefits. It solved the lack of not having a dedicated HR/Benefits individual.
  • Zenefits is extremely easy to use.
  • It guides you through the entire benefit enrollment process.
  • The iOS app is also very clean and simple.
  • The software itself is very basic, it only does a fraction of the things a similar software, Namely, does.
  • The iOS app is very bare-bones. You really can't do anything, just search for people.
  • It should include org charts, time off requests, payroll information, reports, etc.
  • Replaces a benefits specialist
  • Ability to store the most basic information of an employee
  • Clean looking iOS app
  • Namely
Namely blows Zenefits out of the water!!!! Seriously, I've used both. Unlike Zenefits where I only touch it once a quarter, I tend to go into Namely every day to see birthdays, work anniversaries, paystub reports, etc.

The iOS app for Namely is also leaps and bounds better than Zenefits. I can do many of the same features on my phone, unlike Zenefits.
It's best suited if you need a software to help enroll your employees into benefits and collect tax information, but that's unfortunately it. Zenefits only does a fraction what a similar software, Namely, does. Unlike Zenefits, I can comment on people's profiles, I can see their work anniversary, birthday, run paystub reports, submit my PTO requests, etc.
