iSolved is an up-and-coming name in the mid-market HRIS space. They were born out of a benefits and compliance company and have built a comprehensive HRIS solution around that knowledge base. Learn more about how iSolved's solution competes with the big names in the HRIS space.



iSolved started off as a benefits provider and they still provide COBRA administration and leave management. However, they've spent the last five years aggressively developing an HRIS and Payroll solution that is centered around the employee experience. Their system can serve the entire employee life cycle and they're continuing to reinvest in the platform with new functionality and a more modern user interface

Market Segment

iSolved is considered a Mid-Market HRIS, which means the system works best for companies with between 50 and 350 employees. Mid-Market solutions are designed to be an all-in-one HRIS for companies with a mild degree of complexity in their HR requirements. Mid-Market solutions typically take between 2 and 3 months to implement and do not require external consultants to successfully implement and manage the solutions. A Mid-Market solution, like iSolved, can scale and configure to some businesses needs, but also may have limitations for larger, more complex organizations.

Additionally, iSolved does charge a nominal implementation fee to clients to get started. This fee is typically ~10-25% of the annual software fees.

  • iSolved went through a series of layoffs during COVID and the customer support team size has been reduced which has led to slower response times
  • iSolved is still limited in some areas, such as compensation management tools
