What do we offer? How does it work?
And all the other burning questions!
What kinds of businesses do you serve?

We’re industry agnostic, and are pleased to serve all kinds of businesses: Small, mid-sized and large companies alike.

Can you serve companies outside of California?

We do! While we proud of our California roots, we serve clients throughout the U.S., coast to coast and across all states and territories. 

Are you a broker?

We are NOT brokers, but we do love to partner with them! We’ve got over 300 partnerships in our network, and are always looking to add more. We can connect to pretty much any platform to get your data transferred over seamlessly. 

Do you just do payroll?

Nope! From hired to retired, when it comes to your employees, we’ve got you covered.

What’s an auto attendant? And why don’t you have one?

Have you ever called a company and been led through series of automated options by a (clearly) robotic voice only to sit on hold and listen to elevator music before actually reaching a real human being? That’s an auto attendant. Here at Coastal, we value your time, which is why you’ll always reach a real human when you call us.

What is an NPS score? Why should I care?

Net promoter score (NPS) measures customer satisfaction by asking this question: “How likely are you to recommend this service to a friend?” In the B2B world, 30 is considered a “good” score by most companies. At Coastal, our NPS is 71, and we won’t rest until we reach 100.

Is making the switch going to be a big headache?

We know switching platforms and learning a new system is a big deterrent for business owners, which is why we’ve made the implementation process easy and headache free (and if we do say so ourselves, among the best in the industry!). You’ll have a dedicated team member by your side start to finish. 

Do we have to switch at the quarter? When can I switch?

Switch anytime! We load individual payroll as opposed to a quarterly dump. 

What kind of integrations do you have?

We offer integrations with most major providers across retirement, workers comp, and time card tracking. See our full partner list. Something missing? Reach out! We’re always looking to expand. 

What makes your ERC support different?

Unlike others, we don’t charge a percentage. Our main priority is supporting out clients, so we’re always upfront and transparent about our fees. Contact us for more information. 

Will you be able to support my business as we grow?

We love to support your business as you grow! Our system is robust and can grow with you – or shrink with you. We’re with you wherever your business takes you.

“But do you offer-?”

We get it. As your business grows, you’ll need more support, and that means more tools that make your life easier. Chances are, we already offer what you’re looking for including integrations, technology, and customized solutions. Reach out today to learn more about what we can do to help.

I'm just asking for a quote. Can you tell me how much it costs?

Every business is unique and has different goals, and we take a lot of pride in providing custom solutions for our clients. Tell us a bit more about you so we can connect you to a consultant and get you an accurate quote for your business. The last thing we want to do is offer you something you don’t need!

Who can I talk to if I have questions?

Anyone on our team is delighted to chat with you. But if you’re a client with us, your dedicated account rep is there to answer any questions that may come up, whenever they come up!

How can payroll automation (OR HR services) save me money?

Oh, let us count the ways. The tighter your HR processes, the more you’ll save!

  • Compliance coverage: HR audits keep you ahead of any potential compliance issues, which helps you save on penalties and fees, not to mention expensive legal action and other legal entanglements.
  • Streamlined processes: When it comes to running a business, tiime is money! So, reducing your time spent on hiring, benefits, documentation, and other inefficiencies means you save big. 
  • Outsourcing over hiring: As your company grows, so will your need for HR support. But outsourcing that work rather than hiring internally not only costs less, it saves you the time and energy of onboarding and training employees.
