Namely provides full HR capabilities, but one of its strongest differentiators is its benefits administration. The benefits administration module is especially unique, as you can both use the software and a consultant. Namely employs expert benefit consultants to help you choose the right packages for your employees. Most HR software vendors leave the benefits administration to the software, but Namely can walk you through the whole process if you need it.
Zenefits’ software provides HR management for small businesses and mid-sized companies alike. One of the reasons it’s appealing to small businesses? It offers a free version. If all your business needs is employee management and benefits administration, you can use Zenefits completely for free. The software works in an app-based system, where there’s an app for payroll, benefits, etc. All of these apps are available to see and use on the main dashboard.
From benefits to time off, HR departments can reduce their manual work as each app shares information and is presented in an easy-to-use interface. As you probably gathered from the name, one of Zenefits’ biggest selling points is its benefits. Offering medical, dental, vision and life insurance plans, there’s no shortage of options for your employees. In fact, it offers thousands of plans from hundreds of providers. Your employees don’t have to be restricted to just “the low or high deductible” anymore. With the available plans, you can offer the most relevant ones for your employees based on location and needs.
Both of these systems share much of the same core functions and provide a base as a comprehensive tool for human resource management.
