Easy to use benefits administration software with small businesses in mind.
Gusto was previously known as ZenPayroll, and originally started as the easiest way to run payroll for smaller companies. It has since added benefits administration as well as other features that are commonly found in your HRIS (onboarding, org charts, etc). Gusto continues to scale their customer base rapidly and has now acquired over 100,000 customers.
In its own words, Gusto "plays nice with your favorite software." It syncs with most accounting software, such as Quickbooks and FreshBooks, and time tracking software such as When I Work and 7shifts. A full list of integrations can be found on their website.
Gusto has the small business in mind. That doesn't mean its not ideal for a larger business, but it is definitely not designed for enterprise corporations.
Gusto has a few different plans:
Free tool for finding and managing great benefits
Great for Midsized businesses looking for a full HR suite
Great for small businesses with simple benefits administration needs
Great for SMBs looking for a comprehensive benefits platform
Great for companies with 50 - 1000 employees
