Rippling Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Rippling's features:

Scott G.

Great product, friendly service

2019-12-20

Rippling makes it easy for my employees to get paid, track PTO, do open enrollment for healthcare and it handles all the tax/compliance stuff with ease.

Pros

For benefits and Worker's Comp, it integrates with third parties seamlessly (our health insurance broker and a Worker's Comp company Rippling works with).

Cons

Today's payroll run surfaced a brand new report that wasn't there just two weeks ago, so I'm hopeful this is an area they are devoting more attention to.

Automates HR & Great for Department of 1

2021-07-13

I have been able to centralize the company's structure through HR, not IT. That is the most major difference.

Pros

From there, you have the ability to manage multiple software integrations that are essential for employee management, onboarding, and feel confident that access has been removed at the time of termination.

Cons

Documentation of performance, PIP's, emails, reports from managers, complaints from employees, investigations, workflows and processes.

Ben's Review

2021-08-18

Our last HR software was good too but this one's more all-inclusive, easier to follow, and overall speedy.

Pros

Love its integration with 15Five as well!

Cons

Really nothing negative to report. Sometimes if I'm editing an employee's time (clock in/out) it's finnicky when i put in the numbers.

Great Software!

2021-03-03

Overall, it has saved so much time with onboarding and managing employee information/time off/benefits, etc.

Pros

I love how it integrates to other programs such as TSheets and Microsoft; now I only need to create one profile for an employee and then the information "ripples" down!

Cons

Creating some payroll reports, perhaps we need more training on this.

Rippling

2020-07-01

I am able to bring on new employees and get them working without a lot of time spent doing HR paperwork.

Pros

It is very user friendly, so I did not have to spend a lot of time reading through a manual to do what I wanted to do in real time. I can bring on new hires and not be bogged down with the details of the payroll paperwork, it is almost seamless.

Cons

I am not required to use the report feature and don't have access. Not really a criticism of the program but I am not able to truly evaluate the program.

Steve Maldonado Rippling User Review

2020-12-11

Pros

Their employee database and reporting/analytics features are crucial in the development of my employment assets.

Cons

I believe the existing customer support structure could be improved on. I have had difficulty connecting to Rippling staff when in need of answers. Otherwise, I have enjoyed using this software and think it benefits my organization in many ways.

Data when I need it fast.`

2020-04-05

I use it for regulatory and reporting, most recently to help with a CARES loan application.

Pros

Quick and intuitive to get to the data I need without training or frequent use.

Cons

Would like more frequent quantitative and qualitative insights into how my employees are using to understand their usage, HR interests and concerns.

No!

2020-09-14

If you are very small, this platform might work but for the most part, the customer service is horrible, the platform is 100% self service so if you need any sort of flexibility or if you make any mistake, you're on your own.

Pros

The only thing to like about this software is that it's cheap

Cons

Everything must be managed via third party apps, which add to the price.

Great Software!

2020-12-09

Pros

The UX of everything from the employee profiles to PTO management is flawless. The UI is responsive and intuitive.

Cons

I like the integration with Google Authenticator but I've had some issues with needing to authenticate my login several times in a row for some reason.

Great but not really a global solution

2021-10-05

Very professional and helfpul but just not the right product for us with a head office in the UK

Pros

Easily managed by the employee.

Cons

For overseas team members we would have had to use a EOC which was not the idea of having a global system. This was really only a US solution

Great integrations save hours, easy to use

2019-10-11

Really frees up a lot of time managing employees, computers and software licenses for the team.

Pros

Intuitive design, easy to navigate, saves a lot of time managing multiple systems for employees.

Cons

Benefits portion is not as customizable as some other stand-alone benefits admin systems but is more intuitive to set up on our own and far better than any other payroll-based benefits system we've tested.

Best HRO/IT/BenAdmin solution by far, and I've used them all

2021-07-07

Pros

They've embraced connecting with other products, and are a platform that makes it insanely easy to: - Onboard/offboard employees - Manage systems in a secure way (we're getting SOC2 compliance and Rippling has made this so much easier) - Easy to manage multiple different job functions/types - perfect for remote workforce - Payroll, benefits - Reporting is pretty good and getting better all the time

Cons

The app for Ben Admin for individual employees needs work.

Automated and smartened my onboarding process

2020-04-24

Their customer support is responsive and the product itself is extremely intuitive.

Pros

Does an incredible job of integrating with our there softwares while also automating our onboarding and employee management to our own customizations and organizational structure.

Cons

I think a dashboard to fully walkthrough everything it has to offer with real life examples of people using it to it's full potential could benefit my business.

A pleasant experience

2021-09-07

Pros

When pay is disbursed, I receive a notification email with a link I can follow to my user portal. The portal is responsive and intuitive, with no excessively nested menus, duplicate links, or confusing page titles.

Cons

I am only an employee user, so I can't speak to how well it integrates from the administrator end of things.

Payroll - Operationalized

2021-02-02

Pros

I appreciate the reporting (both exporting and dashboard) functions of the software.

For a small business, there may only one person wearing many hats behind the scenes and setting up tax jurisdictions can be challenging and time consuming when changing payroll platforms.

HR that is simple, informative and user friendly

2020-01-17

Rippling has been a great tool and very useful for our entire company.

Pros

From customized reports (employee birthdays, t-shirt sizes, PTO reports) to easy hiring that takes less than 5 minutes, Rippling has been a life saver to make sure no HR step is missed.

Cons

Transferring medical information from hard copies to Rippling (especially during the renewal period) was a little difficult and made it hard to identify who had a change in their plans. although this will not be a problem in the future now that we have fully transitioned our health insurance tracking through Rippling.
