2015 - Payroll giant ADP cut off Zenefits small business clients


Corporate payroll company ADP cut off Zenefits small business clients using the ADP RUN payroll system from sharing data with Zenefits, because Zenefits was, “pulling sensitive information, including unmasked Social Security numbers and employee banking information, in a manner that did not comply with ADP’s standards for data security.” Zenefits called out ADP for being unfair and said that this action came without warning to its clients. Zenefits offers HR services to small and medium businesses and works with several third-party partners to provide things like payroll and insurance. ADP is one of many companies Zenefits integrates with to provide payroll processing for these businesses.

2014 - Zenefits - leads the wave of next generation cloud HR services. ADP should better react


Zenefits, the cloud HR app, which launched just over a year ago, has seen huge growth in a very short period of time. The new financing brings total amount raised to $84 million since being founded. Zenefits was created on the idea of simplifying the process of HR for companies, by providing a simple, beautiful UI for personnel departments as well as the rank and file, making it significantly easier to keep track of their pay and benefits. The SaaS platform itself is free to use, but Zenefits makes money by acting as an insurance broker.
