gusto payroll and hr software

For small to medium-size businesses, finding the right payroll platform can be a daunting task.

Not only are you on the search for software that performs all of the necessary functions without hindering workflows or requiring manual labor, you’re also looking to avoid overspending on high-intensity software that is meant for much larger businesses.

Blackhawk experienced the same headache. Until we found Gusto. In fact, we love it so much that we’re here to tell you exactly what makes it the best payroll software for businesses like ours, and yours.

In this article, we’ll cover the following:

  • User Experience
  • Customer Service
  • Remote Employees
  • Payroll
  • Donations/Philanthropy
  • Savings Buckets
  • Debit Cards
  • 401k

Plus, we’ve got a handy referral link for you to use. When you sign up with our link, you’ll receive $100 courtesy of Gusto!

Unmatched functionality.

1. Great user experience.

Gusto’s payroll platform is truly one that is made for humans – the user experience is top-notch.

Not only is it easy to set up, so you can make sure your employees get paid on time, every time, but it’s also easy to navigate for all users. That means your employees can access all of their documents and paystubs, as well as request time off, without having to Google a help article or ask a manager. Easy peasy.

2. Streamline processes.

Gusto not only comes with benefits for your employees, but also for your payroll department. It combines all of the functions you need into one easy-to-use platform – all of the information you need is housed in one place.

From benefits, to expenses and reimbursements, to PTO and time tracking, and of course, payroll, condense your bookmarked platforms to just one.

3. High-level customer service.

Making a new payroll platform work for you can be difficult at first – that’s why Gusto has taken care to implement a knowledge base and customer service line that can help you out, no matter what your issue is.

They understand the frustrations that businesses encounter with their old software, and have worked hard to add features to Gusto that alleviate stresses, mistakes, and miscommunications for all involved.

4. Work better with employees in other states.

Having employees in various states means registering a business in their home state – that also comes with a headache for employers, as this process can often be tedious, difficult, and frustrating.

Gusto made this easy for Blackhawk – it will do the same for you!

Automatically transfer funds between accounts.

5. Gusto wallet.

Gusto Wallet takes the thought out of saving money. With the Wallet extension, anyone at your company can automatically set up money transfers to various accounts.

Whether you’re trying to reach your savings goal for a vacation, car repairs, or large purchases, Gusto’s functionality allows users to send set percentages of your paycheck to specific accounts.

6. Gusto giving.

Similar to Gusto wallet, Gusto giving sets up automatic donations to the causes you (and your employees) care about most.

As with all donations, those done through Gusto are 100% tax deductible.

Even better, employers can match the donations of employees to double the good you do for the world. Now isn’t that a treat?

7. Gusto debit card.

Just as with any other savings account or charity donation, your retirement savings will thank you for using Gusto. Connect your 401k and never worry about allocating funds to it again – plus, employers can set up 401k matching.

"Our company has been using Gusto since January 2019. What originally attracted me to Gusto was how easy the platform was to use. What has kept me using Gusto is their customer service and intuitive site. They have really made the support systems we need for HR a no-brainer."

Implement Gusto as your payroll system today.

Now that you’ve gotten just a glimpse into how Gusto has helped Blackhawk optimize our payroll and human resources processes, it’s time for you to do the same for your small or medium-sized business.
