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.

Keeping an accurate time off calendar, with specific buckets, is extremely important. It has helped my company grow without having to manage things in Excel. Also, implementing an annual review process by using CakeHR has been very clean and transparent with my employees. This also allows me to see year over year. In years past, we used Word or a Jotform which made it challenging to pull up years past.

Pros

Rippling

  • layout and format is sleek and intuitive to use
  • it guides the user through the necessary steps needed to perform an action
  • org chart is interactive and has multiple ways to view - which is super helpful as a new employee
  • the dashboard and to-do list are super helpful - makes me feel at ease knowing that I completed everything I needed to complete

  • Employee self service - the apps and desktops GUIs are very intuitive.
  • Leave management - this manages itself through the app and system, saves lots of admin.
  • Customization - you can tailor the system more and more to suit your specific needs.
  • Updates and Customer Service - the CakeHR team gave dedicated a lot of time to bring out weekly updates and systems improvements which shows they are dedicated to making this a great product - the fact that they were bought by Se recently is also testament to their ongoing mission.

Cons

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.

  • Calendar could be offered in a larger view by week
  • Requesting time and accepting it would be great if linked with our own calendar Bookeo

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.

Customer support is amazing. There are times I post a question and I don't get back to support. They will always follow-up with an email to make sure our questions are answered. I even had a call with Julianna who was wonderful and very personable. You definitely get a level us service that exceeds most companies. Keep up the good work CakeHR.

Alternatives Considered

Rippling

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.

For core HR functionality, this is the only product we use. For ATS, we have experimented with BreezyHR. We've learned that CakeHR is adding an ATS module soon though.

Return on Investment

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
Sarah Goins | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sage HR

  • The system shows us all days off and overtime, so we can manage this and know everything is like agreed in the contract.
  • A simple and affordable system with room to grow.
