KayaPush VS Gusto

While KayaPush and Gusto offer a similar suite of workforce management features like payroll, recruitment and onboarding, scheduling, and time tracking - the signature difference lies within the markets they serve and their integrations. 

KayaPush was built specifically for dispensaries, investing heavily in dispensary POS integrations.  KayaPush also offers an all-in-one solution with each feature function built on one platform, where Gusto leverages integrations to build out its offerings. 

Kayapush solution overview:

KayaPush was created to assist cannabis businesses in overcoming the challenges they face when running a dispensary, including labor, workforce, people, and revenue management.

The KayaPush solution is built on one platform, allowing for simple system upgrades and data transfer. 

KayaPush is ideal for dispensary owners managing flexible and variable hourly rate employees. It also enables dispensary owners to increase revenues by forecasting labor and producing real-time sales vs. labor reports. 

Gusto

solution overview:

Gusto provides cloud-based payroll, benefits, and human resource management software for companies primarily in the United States.  The product is heavily geared toward corporate platforms, accountants, and HR personnel.
