Expensify and Zenefits Announce Strategic Partnership to Streamline Expense and HR Needs for Accountants and Small Businesses Everywhere

The partnership includes a direct integration between the two platforms as well as commitments to improve the back and front office processes for administrators and users everywhere

SAN FRANCISCO--()--Expensify, the fastest growing expense reporting software company worldwide, and Zenefits, the first total app experience for small business HR, today announced a strategic partnership to empower accounting firms and their small business clients on streamlining workflow processes in the cloud. This announcement comes one week after Zenefits launched their app partner ecosystem at Z2, in which Expensify was featured as one of the initial 17 apps launched with the platform.

“With Z2, we redefined the all-in-one HR category,” says David Sacks, CEO of Zenefits. “Small businesses now have one place to go to for all their HR needs, including any app connected to employee data. Partners like Expensify are key to making workflows simpler and less time-consuming, especially in critical areas like accounting.”

The Zenefits-Expensify integration automatically creates Expensify accounts for all new employees in Zenefits, pulls in new and existing employee information, removes former employees, and updates approval workflows instantly from Zenefits to Expensify.

“Both Zenefits and Expensify are dedicated to improving the lives of small businesses everywhere, which is why we chose Zenefits as our first HR integration partner,” says David Barrett, founder and CEO of Expensify. “With so many apps out there for everything, our strategic partnership symbolizes both companies’ dedication to creating an ecosystem of best-in-breed products that work seamlessly together, simplifying business processes for both the back and front office with an integrated experience.”

In addition to the direct integration, the strategic partnership includes commitments from both companies to provide bookkeepers, accountants, and small businesses with the digital tools they need to successfully manage and grow their business through education and mutual events, including taking part in the SBA Tech Coalition.
