Zenefits can do it all with their HRIS, but their benefits software on its own is very strong too.

What's Inside

Zenefits Review

Zenefits offers benefits administration alongside their flagship HRIS product. The tool allows for employees to manage their benefits themselves on any platform they want, mobile or desktop. 

For employers, you get detailed insights on your employees on top of saved time. In fact, Zenefits says that their customers save up to a full week of work by using their online enrollment tool alone.
