More than a year ago, Zenefits seemed to be riding high as a company Silicon Valley investors salivated over.

The bottom fell out, and not only did Zenefits have to settle with several state agencies, but its founder Parker Conrad resigned.Under new leadership, the company has shifted its focus towards correcting its actions, soldiering on with its mission to be the all-in-one human resource HR solution for small businesses.

Zenefits defined the all-in-one HR category in 2013, bringing HR and benefits together in a tightly integrated, online system, said David Sacks, the company s chief executive.

At launch, there are 17 integrations, including Google s G Suite, Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce, Slack, Intuit Quickbooks, Xero, Abacus, Expensify, eShares, Lattice, Zugata, Greenhouse, Lever, Blueboard, Officevibe, and Bonusly.

Sacks explained to VentureBeat that the app store is the only true way to be all-in-one, combining a suite approach with a pure-play, best-of-breed approach.

While the company has exerted countless hours perfecting its payroll, benefits, and HR products, it recognizes that it can t do everything, hence the shifting into a more open ecosystem.Itai Turbahn, director of product management, stated that Zenefits had been working on Z2 for close to a year and that the company is thinking about providing administrators with a flexible system tailored to their needs.
