TriNet, a leading provider of comprehensive human resources solutions for small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) announced the completion of its acquisition of Zenefits, a leading SaaS-based human capital management (HCM) solution purpose-built for SMBs to enable people operations, from Francisco Partners.

Through a centralized and highly scalable platform with a modern consumer-like user interface, TriNet Zenefits delivers software-based solutions to help streamline workflows by connecting HR, Benefits, Employee Engagement, Payroll and Time & Attendance. The added offering will provide even greater flexibility, allowing TriNet to deliver a broader range of HR functionality and service models.

“Today’s acquisition of Zenefits marks a historic day for TriNet and I could not be more excited to diversify our SMB product offering,” said Burton M. Goldfield, TriNet President and CEO.

“The addition of Zenefits furthers our mission to power the success of SMBs by supporting their growth and enabling their people. By adding an enhanced HCM software product to TriNet’s PEO offering, we will be in a position to create a unique HR solution not available in today’s market which we intend will eventually operate within the same technology cloud environment.”
