Zenefits and ADP are Fighting and NOT Integrating

Zenefits is based upon the assumption that they can integrate with any payroll company.  I wonder how this will work when the nations #1 payroll company has blocked their access, and has now filed suit against them?

Zenefits, ADP dispute heats up with defamation lawsuit

Payroll services giant ADP filed a defamation lawsuit against Zenefits Tuesday, heating up a quarrel between the companies that ignited when ADP disabled Zenefits’ access to its systems for shared clients.

ADP says the company on June 4 disabled Zenefits’ access due to data security concerns and an alarming and “excessive and unnecessary demand on ADP’s servers.” Zenefits disputes the claim, saying it has found no security threats, nor any data traffic spikes. The HR tech firm calls the move by ADP an anti-competitive fear tactic.

“ADP’s business model is to offer a bundled solution to customers, and evidently they don’t want small businesses using Zenefits for the HR and benefits portion of their business. Instead, we believe ADP is using a tried and true tactic in enterprise software: Whenever a new, innovative company enters a market, the incumbent tries to spread fear, uncertainty and doubt about the new market entrant. This tactic is so common it even has an acronym — FUD (fear, uncertainty, & doubt),” Zenefits CEO and Co-founder Parker Conrad said in a June 9 blog post on the company’s website.
