User Reviews of TriNet HR Software

We have 170 staff members and our HR team is essentially one person. And that’s because of Zenefits. Zenefits makes the HR manager’s job streamlined.

The mobile app works great because you can do things from your couch at home. I’ve worked with about 3 different HRIS systems and Zenefits has easily accessible reports.

We use the business intelligence data from Zenefits to create reports and find gaps or where we are excelling.

I’ve struggled with HR systems. I’ve tried all the big guys like ADP, Paychex, we’ve even tried QuickBooks. They usually fail in various ways. We sought out an organization like Zenefits.

We want to scale upwards and try to treat our organization as a larger company. I don’t know how we could have accomplished that without Zenefits.

In the last 8 years we’ve grown to a 10+ team with 20 clients around the world. Zenefits has been beneficial for us because we can scale with it.
