Workiz, a software company that works with on-demand service businesses like locksmiths, is teaming with human resources (HR) and payroll company Gusto to help service professions surmount hurdles connected with payroll, HR management, and staffer benefits, according to a Thursday (Feb. 4) announcement.
“Workiz’s integration with Gusto changes the entire way home and field service businesses track employee hours and process payroll,” Workiz CEO Adi (Didi) Azaria said in the announcement. “Automatically synced data will help business owners cut the endless hours invested in payroll and avoid compliance risks and costly data entry errors.”
The connection makes payroll easier for home service business owners, letting them turn their attention to other matters such as developing and educating their workforces, heightening sales to expand their companies and bolstering the quality of service, according to the announcement.
Gusto, which more than 100,000 companies throughout the country utilize, provides a payroll offering that comes with benefits management and tax filing. The firm, which has offices in San Francisco, New York City and Denver, provides team management tools, staffer self-onboarding, HR, retirement plans and health insurance beyond full-service payroll.
Somrat Niyogi, head of partnerships at Gusto, said in the announcement that Gusto is developed to be the people platform for all small companies by providing them with the technologies that let them serve their workforces in a single location.
“Workiz is built to handle the everyday needs of all field service businesses, so working together as one creates a seamless experience allowing business owners to focus on growing their businesses,” Niyogi said in the announcement.

Checks has now landed $44 million to date since its establishment in 2019 with the close of the new round. The new infusion will be harnessed to expand the workforce.
