Innovative Benefits Solutions

Free yourself with Extensis


xtensis offloads much of the administrative burden of managing your company’s employees.

By engaging Extensis, you will lower your total labor cost, lessen risk and increase your focus on growing and managing your core business. Additionally, as a result of economies of scale that Extensis enjoys as New Jersey’s largest PEO, you’ll be able to offer your employees “Fortune 500” benefits normally beyond the reach and affordability of the small- to mid-size employer.

Outsource your administrative headaches with Payroll PLUS
