Rippling

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.

Sage HRMS

Sage HRMS is a software that fits in all organizations whether small or large and this makes it the most suitable HR solution as it will help you manage your workforce even if it may appear small. The software has analytics and reporting tools that are applicable in performance management where you will use them in assessing the productivity of your employees and plan on how to improve further as a workforce. It further helps in employee on-boarding, payroll management, and talent management

Pros

Rippling

  • 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.
margie dillenburg | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sage HRMS

  • We use the product to process weekly, biweekly and monthly payroll. It is easy to use for each type.
  • It manage HR and payroll data for our employees at 10 different locations in multiple states.
  • It streamlines the process for filing taxes. Rather than having to print reports, reenter data and file returns on external sites, I can process returns with a couple clicks of the mouse.

Cons

Rippling

  • 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.
Jason Nyal Long | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sage HRMS

  • Attendance - attendance plan details tend to fluctuate from company to company therefore more flexibility to track time and deal with carry over amounts could be beneficial

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.

I do not work with this software anymore, and I am not involved with the renewal of it. However, if I were, I would still suggest using it unless something better was introduced

Usability

Rippling 9.3
Based on 341 answers
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.

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

Rippling

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.

Sage HRMS was very cost effective for a non-profit. It does all that we needed as a company and more. It also allows us to handle payroll ourselves instead of outsourcing [it].

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.
