Bridge

Bridge is suited for scenarios where you need ppl to complete steps in order or test that they received the correct amount of knowledge after watching a video. I do think Bridge is less appropriate for companies that use it in external training scenarios as there is some key functionality missing. We gotten very good at brainstorming and finding solutions/ways to get Bridge to work the way that we need it to

Rippling

If you are a company with over 50 employees, HR personnel management is a part of your operations that can be streamlined to save time and resources. Rippling is the perfect platform for onboarding/ deboarding employees and systemizing numerous parts of the human resources department.

Pros

Bridge

  • Bridge is designed for the user so it is intuitive and easy to use.
  • Bridge includes an authoring tool so building custom content is fast and easy.
  • Bridge does a good job of providing user information for managers. Managers can quickly and easily see how many courses their reports are enrolled in and if anyone is overdue on required courses.
  • Bridge is also built with learning science in mind. There are multiple options for assessments, including an option for verified tasks to be completed to demonstrate proficiency.

Rippling

  • Sorts out all the important elements I use it for: Insurance, Payroll, Birthdays, PTO, 401K, etc
  • Rippling makes it easy to add CSVs to the finance/payroll tab
  • Checking each employee's vacation and sick day hours is easy. It's also simple for all our employees to go into Rippling and request that information
  • Fast customer service when you chat the support@rippling.com email.

Cons

Bridge

  • Bridge could improve their categorization feature for trainings; folders would be great!
  • I'd like to see more ways to add content in the Bridge native environment in the future. Being able to create tables, infographics, and other training materials right in the system would be a great time saver.

Rippling

  • [The ability to have] any authenticator app can be used for login, not just Google Authenticator.
  • [I would like it if it] included a tutorial or walkthrough of the website for new users.
  • [There is] a few too many emails so far, [I would like the ability to] auto-set task reminders to monthly, not daily.

It has been very useful to our organization in getting compliance training complete. We have a 24/7/365 organization with some folks only working 2 days a week during the summer only, many work full-time jobs elsewhere and can't make weekday programs and facilities don't have to alter schedules to get mass numbers of people through training like you have to do with live training..

Because it is through my current job I would recommend it to other friends with businesses both large and small. It is an easy to use app and it is super helpful and beneficial for time tracking and ensuring accuracy of the time clock. It notifies you when you are close to your allotted PTO limit which is also a neat feature.

Rippling has a very user-friendly and intuitive user interface. The system layout is very logical and easy to use. The payday emails are fun and provide useful links to review your paystub. Employee onboarding, maintenance, and offboarding are easy to navigate. Reporting is configurable enough to get what you need.

Any issues that arise are usually resolved within the same day! I only see it from the employee side, but when discussing issues with our HR department, it seems that they're able to address problems and find self-service solutions fairly easily.

Alternatives Considered

Bridge

Our previous LMS was Symphony. Hands down, there is no comparison. Switching to Bridge was the best decision made by our management team. All we used Symphony for was for our monthly compliance training. Many times people would complain that they would need to retake their compliance course as Symphony would lose records. It became a hassle having to retake a course because you didn't save a copy of the completion certificate. Bridge allows for more than just compliance training AND we are able to see if learners didn't complete their courses via the reports.

Bamboo, in all fairness, was another great internal platform that my last company used to track benefits. I [enjoyed] Bamboo, but Rippling is much easier to use, and I like how you can navigate through the platform faster. I also like the added alerts [...] Rippling provides to your email notifying you of when you get paid, any changes made to your account, etc.

Return on Investment

Bridge

  • Certainly, Bridge was not an inexpensive option when we were reviewing platforms. To date, we have not seen a positive ROI but believe that will happen in the near future as we expand an offering of an additional program.
  • Reviews from our users indicate that they appreciate the professional and easy to use features Bridge provides, along with the video based design of the program.
  • The program we developed with the Bridge platform supports our position as educators in our industry.

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
