Payroll Relief

Payroll Relief can be customized to work for just about any business. Electronic tax payment and e-filing services are not available in all states so the system may be less appropriate in jurisdictions where there is a lack of automation on the back-end. This lack of automation can be overcome by a payroll processing provider that has good internal processes and an understanding of how to handle their clients' filings/payments directly with these unsupported states

I really like how easy it has been to use Rippling as both an employee and as a manager. It helps keep everything in one place and makes all tools necessary to be a manager of both salary and hourly staff easy and feasible. I would say that it is very well suited to larger companies that have organizational complexity. Smaller and less complex organizations with few managers probably have less need for this platform.

Pros

Payroll Relief

  • Payroll entry and approval is simple
  • The system supports unlimited pay types so it is easy to customize the system for our clients
  • The system automates the filing of most tax forms and W-2s

Rippling

  • As a product designer myself, I have to say the overall UX is very solid. It's easy for me to figure out what actions I need to take are and what the next step is.
  • I liked the email reminder to upload my dependent's forms by a certain date. I probably would have forgotten about this. I didn't have the forms readily available when I was adding them to my benefits initially.
  • The dashboard is laid out and organized well. It's easy for me to navigate and find what I'm looking for. It's very "learnable" and intuitive, I didn't have to spend much time figuring out where things lived.

Cons

Payroll Relief

  • The site navigation can be confusing.
  • The system lacks HR functionality. There is no automated employee onboarding option. PTO can be tracked but there is no way for employees to request time off from their employee portal.
  • Payroll processors do not get a dashboard showing a list of payrolls that are scheduled to be processed each day like some other systems do.

Rippling

  • There isn't a ton of changes that comes to mind.
  • I feel like Rippling could turn into an overall hub for a business. Where notifications of meeting and other things could be put in.
  • From my stand point and my experience of rippling it seems like payroll, time off, and on boarding are all Rippling is used for.

Alternatives Considered

Payroll Relief

Payroll relief is more customizable and easier to use than some other systems we have reviewed. The fee structure is better suited for our client base as well.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Rippling

Similar features to Workday, simpler and smoother payroll and benefits election than Paychex. If faced with the choice I would personally go with Workday or Rippling, but Rippling certainly holds the crown for the most direct and simple interface from an employee perspective.
It is also easily accessed via the mobile app and is extremely responsive to selections.

Return on Investment

Payroll Relief

  • We can process a large number of payrolls with a relatively small staff.
  • Payroll relief is simple to sell and support.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Rippling

  • Unsure of how much we paid to use Rippling, but I do know we are paying far less for health insurance with better policies
  • Being able to have each employee in the same place for mandatory trainings is easier to keep track of.
  • Always super simple to find my 401k contribution and change when needed
