FreshBooks, ZenPayroll integrate accounting and payroll platforms

Summary:A new partnership between the two cloud software companies will reduce the need to enter payroll data manually.

Fast-growing cloud accounting software provider, FreshBooks , has beefed up its support for payroll processing through an integration deal with ZenPayroll .

It's just the latest example of the support building behind payroll services and platforms focused on small businesses.

Aside from FreshBooks, ZenPayroll also supports integrations with Xero and QuickBooks.
