Payroll used to take at least one full day per month. We’re able to run payroll bi-weekly now, which takes us less than an hour each month.

Sam Eitzman

Cofounder & CEO of Snapbar

The benefits process has been super simple. From 401k through Guideline to health, dental and vision, integrating benefits for our team has been a breeze because we went directly with the options provided by Gusto. They removed the guesswork. In a sense, you could say we’ve built our entire People Operations infrastructure off of Gusto’s options — at least that side of it.
