Rippling is a business process integration platform.

5.0 10 months ago

Comments: In general, I've had a great time using Rippling. Having a central hub for handling everything relating to staff has dramatically streamlined how we do business. Human resources, information technology, and financial processes are now fully integrated, resulting in significant time savings and fewer mistakes. Particularly notable is the speedy onboarding process, which has helped us streamline our hiring practices and get to work faster.

Pros:

Across HR, IT, and FP&A, Rippling provides a unified platform for efficient administration. It's a fantastic resource for bringing together disparate areas of an organization's operations, such as payroll, costs, benefits, and IT hardware.

Cons:

Considering its numerous benefits, Rippling might be difficult to grasp at first because of its many features and capabilities. It may take some time to become used to all of the options and capabilities, and the learning curve may be rather high. There is room for enhancement in customer service with regards to response times and the clarity of responses given.

Easy Payroll Tracking with bonus Company-Wide Information

5.0 last month New

Comments: I've enjoyed using it and enjoy looking at the main window detailing events happening within the company.

Pros:

I love the look and feel of it. It's easy to maneuver and has a lot of details regarding the personal user, as well as company information. You can see the company org chart, see comments and memos, as well as all insurance information for a user. You can request time off and keep track of everything regarding an indivdual.

Cons:

There was a learning curve when we first implemented it, but after a short time, it was a breeze.

Horrible service and on boarding

2.0 5 years ago

Comments: Their system is nothing more than the API hub to other third-party service providers. You're paying to connect to your other services through their interface, which costs additional for each service on a per-person level. There are many more affordable solutions with better interface and customer service. To prove how outdated and horrible their system is, they declined my payment (even though I provided my full account info with their rep on the phone that was chewing on the phone, letting me figure everything out instead of trying to help me). I tried to reach my rep, that he disappeared. Due to the inconsistency and the low-level onboarding, I decided to cancel and not proceed with the service. Right after I canceled the service, they went into my account and started to withdraw money without my consent! I doubt that any of these reviews are legitimate. I have found the same reviews on different channels, basically plagiarized.

Pros:

I didn't like anything once I signed up.

Cons:

-ZERO Customer Service -Horrible Onboarding for someone who advocates themselves as an onboarding service -Constant upsell for every single thing in the system, even after I selected the everything from their highest level package there is still cost for even a simple API for your email or Salesforce and much more! -User Interface is extremely outdated -Functionality is exaggerated.

Alternatives Considered: QCommission, Gusto and TriNet Zenefits

Reasons for Choosing Rippling: To have a better onboarding and payroll that would encompass everything in one.

Switched From: ADP Workforce Now

Reasons for Switching to Rippling: Because it was cheaper from the onset and easier to use until I actually signed up and all the rest of the cost that wasn't disclosed started adding on.

Biggest Issue is Pricing

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: The product works well and has several added value services we like all intergrated. Customer service is decent, mixed feelings on thier new AI chat bot, sometime you just need a human. Once again the bigest issue is pricing. Their list price is now $10 and comparables are $8; $2.00 per can add up fast.

Pros:

The tech stack and features are awesome compaired to others.

Cons:

Price increases ever year and list price has increase 25% in two years. The only reason we would leave is pricing, which this year came very close.

Alternatives Considered: QuickBooks Payroll, Gusto and Paylocity

Reasons for Choosing Rippling: Gusto to Paylocity to Rippling. - Gusto good product, support sucks, pricing average, added value services expensive. - Paylocity onboarding, customer services, tax compliance, account data fees after cancelation, easy of use all SUCKS. Very unfriendly system. - Rippling good product, added value service great, support good, pricing high, 1099 pricing same as employees.

Switched From: Gusto and Paylocity

Reasons for Switching to Rippling: More features and added value services to meet our needs.
