Zenefits Touts New Software In Turnaround Effort
Human-resources startup Zenefits is seeking to put its troubled past behind it, launching redesigned software at its first customer conference on Tuesday in an effort to jump-start sales and repair its corporate image. Zenefits said the new software, dubbed “Z2,” enables its small-business customers to manage more human-resources tasks, like employee payroll. It also now works with 17 business apps made by other software makers, including Intuit Inc. and Salesforce.com Inc. ... Zenefits, incorporated as YourPeople Inc., gives away its software free to small businesses, which use it primarily to manage employee health-care benefits. Zenefits makes money by collecting brokerage commissions from insurance carriers. (Winkler, 10/18)
