In late May, gig economy app Fiverr announced that freelancers on the platform have collectively earned more than $2 billion. We have a separate Provider Ranking for gig apps, yet they move in similar circles as payroll apps, and Fiverr’s triumph hints at the broader footprint.
That said, our Provider Ranking of Payroll Apps is often short work for PYMNTS statisticians as this particular grouping sticks to “established” chart positions month to month more than most.
Don’t read that and think, “nothing to see here.” There is — if one reads between rankings.
The Top 5
We could almost cut-and-paste last month’s top 4 apps as they haven’t budged, but we’ve never taken the easy way here and we’re not starting with something important — like payroll.
Bet you didn’t see this one coming: we’ve got a new name entering the Top 5 at No. 5, and it’s the Zenefits human resource information system (HRIS) app. Welcome to the Top 5. Orientation packets and official “Top 5” jackets are shipped on alternating Thursdays, unless it rains.
The Top 10
Change is interesting even when it’s downward, as is the case this month with the TriNet full-service HR app, dropping one spot to No. 6.
Unchanged at No. 7 is popular QuickBooks Payroll, recently integrated with The Bookkeeper360 App to bring its functionalities to millions more small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
Here’s an unexpected changeup: the RUN Powered By ADP app, falling three precipitous chart positions to land at No. 8 this month. ADP introduced its RollTM by ADP® payroll app for small business owners back in February. We’ll see in coming months if (and where) the app charts.
Holding its ground again at No. 9 is the Rippling HR management app.
