Hubstaff

Hubstaff is a great find for us in the management of projects easily. It is a fully-featured platform and keeps smart features.
Great program with full robust technology attracts me more and helping a lot. Support needs a lot of improvements. Other
than that, it’s a great platform, definitely recommend this to other businesses as well.

Rippling

Rippling is perfect for companies looking to streamline HR processes and maintain an employee's lifecycle. I highly recommend Rippling for companies that need customizable reports that they can build to suit their needs. Until Rippling adjusts their pricing structure for apps, Rippling may not be the best option financially for consulting companies. The Employee Home is also a great feature that keeps everyone on the updated on birthday, anniversaries, quick links, etc.

Pros

Hubstaff

  • Its ease of use and implementation compelled me to prefer this tool over others.
  • I love the way it introduces us day to day latest and simple techniques for managing workflows.
  • The biggest and the major pro of this software is that it plays a vital role in monitoring my remote employees so conveniently.
  • It comprises of best time tracking features.
Emily Fasano | TrustRadius Reviewer

Rippling

  • Time off is easy to request. As a manager, I get an email when a direct report requests it.
  • Consolidating different benefit plans into 1 place is amazing. I'm so glad I don't have to log into an insurer's website, find a group ID, etc., to enroll in a plan.
  • I can quickly get pay stubs.

Cons

Hubstaff

  • [Hubstaff] is limited to integrations, while working on the projects I face difficulty to drag the drop because sometimes the plan requires to be discussed and it becomes a necessity to insert various attachments on the spot so that we could achieve the maximum.
  • Further live chats should be made available.

Rippling

  • The HSA section of Rippling has been needing a revamp for about a month. When I click it, it's just a blank white screen.
  • The buttons on Rippling should lead to an area where you could chat online with someone in CS at rippling. It would be faster and more user friendly. Right now, the button takes me to the CEO, who won't be able to solve my problem quickly.

Very intuitive process, features, and layout. Signing up and signing on for the first time is not daunting, unlike some other websites. Learning the layout of the website and its features is quick, easy, and actually fun using the platform they have created. I have had no problems accessing the information I needed using their software.

Hubstaff has always responded to support requests in a timely manner and has kept me in the loop of changes.When contacting them about future changes/features they've always been upfront on whether that is a change they are looking to make and when that change may occur. Finally, if the person I have communicated with was unable to resolve, they always escalated to the next best person who can answer/resolve.

Initial payroll support was ok, but the system seems to be designed for on your own support. If you need an answer, you have to spend time researching in their knowledge base. Email support seems slow sometimes. Phone support is nonexistent. There may be options to pay, but I like systems designed with strong customer support in mind where you can pick up the phone and talk to a human immediately.

Alternatives Considered

Hubstaff

Wrike has a task based system that you can clock time against, but it just wasn't flexible enough for the type of work we do, particularly the one offs. HubStaff is also really simple to use, so anyone can get started with it without any training or previous knowledge required. It doesn't take up a lot of space and I can manage it from the top of my screen in addition to the app itself. It also has a phone app which is great if some employees occasionally travel

I think Rippling has been used differently, but overall the user experience is where Rippling wins out. I was not part of the selection process so I can't say why it was chosen over the other tools, but I imagine this ease of use played a part in it. Also pricing is my other guess.

Return on Investment

Hubstaff

  • The availability of the recording feature is the biggest plus of this software so that I can easily record things that can be proved helpful to me further.
  • It has replaced timesheets with spreadsheets and this is how it makes my work easier and interesting for me.
Emily Fasano | 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
