Central deals with all the business bullsh*t that isn't central to our product/mission – payroll, hiring, benefits, compliance & more. Extremely responsive team!

At my previous startup, I did all the compliance work using Rippling, which was a huge distraction. Now, Central handles everything with just a quick onboarding call. Highly recommend founders use Central because doing this work yourself is a distraction and adds unnecessary risk to your company.

True story: Central proactively alerted me about a new regulation that came out this year, then filed the paperwork for me. My lawyers reached out 3 days later offering to take care of the same requirement for $450. I'm raving about Central to every founder I know.

As a first-time product-focused founder, Central has been fantastic. They get stuff done automatically without bothering me. Don’t waste your time on anything back-office related and just use Central.
