CenterPoint Payroll

CenterPoint Payroll has been excellent for our company, with approximately 150 employees. I can certainly see it being excellent for smaller companies and larger companies. I don't know if there is a size of company at which it would become difficult or limiting to use - I can't foresee any of the functions or features becoming limiting factors as company size increases. To a certain extent, I could see the robustness of CenterPoint being a bit more than what is necessary for a tiny company of less than 5 employees, but it would certainly be able to do what is required for them.

Great for a use case where you need to effectively communicate pay and PTO with a system that is intuitive for team members with any level of experience. Also, there is little friction when trying to integrate new team members into the system. If you have employees that are primarily remote this tool is particularly suited for you.

  • Rippling ATS is amazing - it really manages data and onboarding great. It gives our applicants a great first impression of us.
  • Pay roll is easy to use and easy to train on. Things that took us hours before taking one click.
  • Automations have been amazing - we've been able to upload trainings so onboarding people is a breeze.

Cons

CenterPoint Payroll

  • Perhaps include a pop-up description of an button, or a link to the help section details, when you hover over the button for more than 3 seconds.

  • I'm looking for my W-2 and it is not available. If they had a time frame of when to expect it, it would be helpful.
  • I enjoy the experience and would welcome any additional features they are working on.
  • The App store they have doesn't explain what they do well.

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.

Easy interface to navigate - one does not need significant time to play around on the platform to determine what to do. In particular, I appreciate how there are 'less clicks' needed to toggle between different views on the platform. One needs to only hover over the global menu page and then select the option. Small things like this help promote a seamless experience

I like that the availability in using Rippling at any given time is useful to me. Getting on the site freely when I need gives me security of knowing that I can be in control of viewing health insurance and hours information. I have yet to get any errors in using the Rippling app.

Rippling's performance has been great, no errors or glitches yet so far. I am confident that Going from one page to the next and all its complexity usage does not lag or times out, it works effectively and efficiently. While using Rippling and other apps it does not tend to slow it down, works great. No complaints.

CenterPoint support is excellent! While I have not had to use them frequently, as the program is consistently stable and has few, if any, bugs, the times I have had to reach out to tech support, they have been excellent and have solved our issues quickly. They listen to our explanation of the problems, can dial into our system to see exactly what we're seeing in real time, and have always been able to quickly determine the issue, work out a solution, and help us through the process until we've got everything back in line. They are friendly, courteous, professional, kind and very knowledgeable of their products. This is absolutely one of the best things about CenterPoint - even though we seldom need it, when we do, they are always quick to get us through the issue.

Customer service is amazing and patient, I imagine, because I have not had any issues needing to reach out to Rippling or my HR for needing assistance. Everything functions and works properly as a program should. The overall usage time to complete anything that I have to do on the app is minimal and easy peasy.

Alternatives Considered

CenterPoint Payroll

We selected CenterPoint Payroll because of our dissatisfaction with ADP (and Paychex prior). We wanted a solution that we controlled internally, instead of having to be at the mercy of some huge company that saw us as a tiny fish in a big ocean. We set our company's configuration, add/define all of our own specific settings, profiles, etc. and simply process payroll. We print and sign our own checks, process our own direct deposits directly with our bank, and can handle our own business needs. When we were with ADP and Paychex before, both companies made promises to us that they simply were either unwilling or unable to fulfill. We have saved both time and money by doing our payrolls ourselves with CenterPoint.

Traditional payroll software has a clunky user experience. They get the job done, but it's at the expense of more time spent by my HR team in supporting employees in using the software to find what they need. Rippling's self-service features work because it's intuitive and easy to understand. The more modern options have a beautiful, elegant user experience, but they're limited in their capabilities. We wanted a platform that could grow with us and make managing our business exponentially easier the more we expand with them.

I can go on here and see all my hours and pto plus health benefits. I like to have the work handbook handy to refer to legal things. How to work my role within it's limits. Being able to put in my hours and view when they are approved is a huge benefit for me.

Return on Investment

CenterPoint Payroll

  • CenterPoint Payroll has saved us tens of thousands of dollars from our prior arrangement with ADP, while providing either similar or superior support.
  • Having payroll completely in our control has simplified a LOT of our daily routines - if something needs to be updated or adjusted, we do it ourselves instead of contacting someone at ADP and hoping that they can do it for us, then getting frustrated when they haven't.

Rippling

  • Rippling has made it incredibly simple for me to get the information I need when I need it
  • Rippling allows me to see the people I work with well, an especially important task for this remote environment
  • I've been able to save time in my day since I no longer have to goggle HR specific criteria thanks to Rippling
  • I also have been able to save time not having to go to all of the different sites to see things like my vested shares, 401k Balance, etc.
