"Payroll made simple"

What do you like best?

ZenPayroll takes an action like running and managing payroll, flips it upside down and makes it not suck. The best feature is the overall lack of fluff. I can log in (from desktop or remote) and run payroll for my company in minutes. In addition, they do all of the tax hoop jumping and heavy lifting when tax season rolls around. In my first month of using ZenPayroll I was able to cut time required for running and managing payroll by more than 50%. Our accountant was also pleased to see the Quickbooks Online integration, which was one of the many reasons we made the switch.

What do you dislike?

Nothing I really can say I dislike, however I would like to see more granular controls for independent contractors. Ideally an admin could delegate a role to another team member for on-boarding and document management.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sign up for a trial, its no strings and you'll get to see why so many businesses (large and small) trust ZenPayroll to handle their payroll needs. Additionally, come tax time, they have a great process in place from what i've read/heard, though I have not gone through a tax season on ZenPayroll just yet.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No more payroll complexity. I can focus on aspects of my business that make us money and foster growth, rather than administration tasks. In addition, I can ensure we do not face any tax penalties for improper or late filing.
