Axonify

Axonify works very well in our organization because we have different departments needing different things and skills. For instance, we have a software-focused department that needs to learn about our latest update. But not everyone in software needs to know every update, and then some only need a refresher. Axonify allows us to target these individuals and see how they are doing. We can then go in and see question performance and tweak if necessary. While Axonify is easy to use, the system and taxonomy of levels and categorization does have a learning curve. If you want something you can set up immediately, this may not be the best option.

Rippling

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

Axonify

  • Update the platform in response to feedback from current users- ex. Many of the features I wished Axonify had when I first signed up for it are now live, such as guided learning, the ability to add certification to guided learning paths, and the ability to tie outside metrics and behaviors directly to Axonify training frequency and scores
  • Reinforce employee knowledge to ensure employees don't forget content they don't use frequently- ex. as long as an employee signs in to train regularly, you can be assured that they will learn what they need to because the Axonify algorithm prioritizes reinforcement questions on topics that the learner hasn't seen recently and topics that the learner has the lowest scores in. The end result is that the platform is always customizing the content watch learner sees to help improve the individual's weak points. This means that of an employee is under performing, we know it is either because the process is not working, or the employee is unwilling to follow the process, not because he or she doesn't know any better
  • Foster competition and excitement around completing certain training milestones- ex. the Leaderboard can get pretty competitive as employees compete to reach the top. The platform also lets you auction off different prizes on the platform using points earned by answering questions correctly, thereby indirectly creating an incentive to complete training.
  • I have never worked with a company that did such a great job at walking a new user through the implementation process. A year and a half after implementing the platform I still have a regular call from my rep (Erin Bresser) during which we discuss my company's training plan, pain points, strategies, upcoming features, and anything else training related. I could not ask for more or better support from a vendor.
  • I love all the different content options I have. I can use the bare bones basics and simply add questions directly into Axonify, or I can support those questions by building a complex course, video, animation, or even downloading content from the Content exchange directly from Axonify. This means that weather I have a day or a year to prepare content, I have the ability to produce a functional and productive experience for my workforce

Rippling

  • It has helped give me references to go back to when I have questions about how to do something within my company process.
  • It has helped organize my training modules so I can easily know what else I have to complete.
  • It has helped me keep myself on track and on point so that I know how to manage the basic functions of my job.

Cons

Axonify

  • The results display for surveys tends to cut off comments. There should be a better export option to save editing time on our end when generating reports.
  • I would like to be able to see the amount people spent to win prizes on the Reports>>Winners page.
  • Live Polling, registration, and electronic QA feature in Events section (like EventMobi).
Michael Dismuke | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

Axonify is extremely easy to use, for both employees and managers. The platform is visually appealing, and Axonify offers a number of videos and tutorials for any administration and user functionality. The reporting is also very easy to obtain and review, with the ability to drill down to team and individual results.

Rippling is definitely more user friendly and less complicated than the HR software I've had to use in the past. It does everything I need it for and does not bombard me with tons of buttons and options that are not necessary. That's why I prefer Rippling over the others.

Rippling is changing the employment industry by providing great resources that enable us to maintain tasks and workloads. The interface overall is fantastic that provides helpful resources. The easy user friendly platform Rippling provides to their clients is fantastic. Personally, I really enjoy using Rippling interface. I would recommend to others.

Alternatives Considered

Axonify

There are so many training platforms and increasing numbers of non LMS training platforms that it can be very difficult to figure out what is best for you. It's been a while since I did all the research that led me to Axonify, but below is a short summary of the pros and cons of the platforms I looked at and how I decided to implement Axonify.
  • Compligo- This platform was recommended by the Director of Legal and Regulatory when I first joined my current company. Its main feature is that they provide training on legal and regulatory topics (this is very important to my organization) however, it is a very old school platform, the training tended to be very long, and there was no element of reinforcement. It felt more like "check the box" training than education our workforce, so I opted to continue looking
  • Docebo- This was my second choice. Docebo is extremely similar to Axonify in the learning philosophy but ultimately I chose Axonify. I won't give my exact reasoning because I'm sure both platforms have made considerable updates since I did my research and I don't want to cause confusion by posting out of date information
  • Inkling- Inkling is a very cool platform, but not quite as robust as I knew I would need, although I'm sure they have added functionality since I last tested the platform
now I am out of space, so I'll leave it at that.

Rippling's PEO application was so much more intuitive, clear, and efficient than others I have used. Their simplicity made the process of creating my profile and enrolling in benefits so easy. The employee site is not cluttered, it is very clean, making it easy to navigate and find exactly what you are looking for quickly.

Return on Investment

Axonify

  • The total cost of the operation has been favorable. We get much better usage of this product than any other product we've deployed. We've been able to use data from Axonify to undermine arguments that people haven't been trained.
  • We are still trying to get some SME's in the business to comprehend just how powerful the platform is.
Aston Moss | 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
