2015 - ZenPayroll rebrands as Gusto and takes on Zenefits
Payroll startup ZenPayroll changed its name to Gusto and is moving beyond payroll, into benefits such as health insurance and workers’ compensation. The addition and subsequent rivalry is a punch in the gut to cloud HR benefits company Zenefits –
which partners (for now) with the newly named Gusto to offer payroll
services to its clients. This partnership proved particularly helpful
earlier this year when payroll giant ADP shut off access to Zenefits
small business customers. Zenefits turned to then ZenPayroll for the
needed payday processing. It's interesting that Zenefits also plans to roll out a payroll service similar to the startup formerly known as ZenPayroll. In a weird twist, these cloud-based startups, once partners in offering each others services are now both planning to offer their own payroll and benefits services in one platform – in other words, Zenefits and Gusto are now competing for business.
2015 - Cloud-based payroll service ZenPayroll scores $60 Million
Cloud-based payroll processing startup ZenPayroll has closed on a $60 million Series B round, led by Google Capital. ZenPayroll mainly serves the small business market that would otherwise need to process payments and direct deposits manually. It offers an easy-to-use, cloud-based interface that allows it to take on industry incumbents Paychex and ADP. While Paychex and ADP have upgraded to the cloud in recent years, allowing them to make it easier for their own customer bases to handle payroll online and through mobile platforms, ZenPayroll’s recent raise allows it to take on larger businesses currently served by Paychex and ADP.
