Founder & CEO
Founded in 2009, Savvy Apps is a Washington, D.C. mobile design and mobile development company serving global brands and cutting-edge startups. Their mission is to make life better, one app at a time.
As the company grew, Founder & CEO, Ken Yarmosh, hoped a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) would make life better for him and his team.
Ken signed up for a PEO hoping it would simplify back-end office operations and free him up to get back to the core of his business. But the PEO’s clunky platform and customer service turned out to be more of a nightmare than a solution.
“The impact was that everything from their online portal to their customer service...well, just didn’t work for us.” said Ken. “Anytime I had to contact them, I dreaded it.” Payroll was manual, vacation had to be tracked separately, and employees rarely, if ever, used their HR tools. Something had to change to simplify the company’s day-to-day HR needs.
When Ken switched over from his old PEO to Justworks, both he and his employees felt an immediate improvement in customer support and user-friendly technology.
“The technology focus of Justworks was a key reason we selected it. The interface is modern and intuitive. Customer support is fast and friendly,” said Ken. Justworks’ modern platform helped Ken automate his payroll and integrate with his existing 401(k) provider. He no longer had to worry about long, unproductive phone calls when trying to complete basic HR tasks. And Ken’s employees also started using Justworks’ HR platform with ease, requesting paid time off and renewing benefits.
Savvy Apps consolidated all of its HR information in a single place. Ken’s team could also now afford better pricing on a suite of competitive perks and benefits.
“After joining Justworks, we were able to solely use one tool and could access any payroll, HR, and benefits information in a single place,” said Ken. That advantage helped Ken focus on what was most important: investing time in his company and growing team. Savvy Apps also got competitive health, dental, and vision rates through Justworks. For a company that proudly keeps a 0% attrition rate, quality benefits and a headache-free HR experience sweetens the pot.
“Justworks saves us time and money,” said Ken. “We consider it an important part of keeping our team happy and engaged at Savvy Apps.”
