Zenefits’ human resources (HR) software “has a clear and flexible pricing model and a collection of cool integration partners that your business will love,” making it PCMag’s top recommendation among the best HR management systems.

PCMag’s recent side-by-side comparison evaluated HR platforms on pricing, features and functionality, and integrations. Ultimately, “only one is built to handle everything your company throws at it,” writes the article’s author, Juan Martinez.  

On Pricing:

“Zenefits Z2 is available in four price tiers, beginning with a free tool capable of handling hiring, onboarding, benefits administration (BA), and very basic reporting.”

“…because of Zenefits Z2’s flexible pricing and a la carte additions, we recommend Zenefits Z2’s pricing model.”

On Features and Functionality:

“Zenefits Z2’s full-service payroll tool offers cool features such as the live paystub preview that lets an administrator make last-minute changes that are synced with the information in other apps associated with the employee.”

“But, more importantly, Zenefits Z2 offers business intelligence (BI) reporting on benefits data.”

On Integrations:

“Zenefits Z2 has 27 prepackaged integrations. The company says it has more than 50 others in development. Integrated products include Asana, Box, Google Drive, and Hive. The list of integrated products also includes Lyft, Microsoft Office 365, and Salesforce. Zenefits Z2 also features an open application programming interface (API) should you need to build your own integrations.”
