You know the up-and-comers who appear out of left field, upending the status quo and toppling tried-and-true winners? The totally unpredictable wins, like the US hockey team beating the USSR in 1980, Tom Brady taking the Patriots to the Super Bowl in 2001, or then-unknown Abraham Lincoln winning the presidency in 1860?
In the world of payroll software, that totally unpredictable winner is Gusto.
Gusto (previously known as ZenPayroll) has been around only since 2011, but its easy-to-use online payroll software rivals QuickBooks’—which is pretty amazing, especially considering that QuickBooks has had decades to reach the top. In fact, we’ve been so consistently impressed with Gusto’s ease of use and cost effectiveness that we awarded it “best overall” in our review of the best payroll software for small businesses.
Like any dark-horse candidate, Gusto’s payroll services have their share of flaws. But with unlimited payroll runs, automatic payroll tax filing, and flexible payroll schedules, Gusto is a great fit for small businesses in every industry. Keep reading our Gusto payroll review to see if your business is one of them.
