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.

I think that SmarterU can be implemented in any organization in any industry. Especially in industries with more complex training requirements. The administration of the system is simple and the usability of the system to end users is even more simple

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.

  • Reporting System can be improved.

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.

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.

Most online LMS systems work really well to track and manage training that the system is delivering. However, most systems are not very good at managing training requirements which are delivered outside of the system. For example, First Aid training, or license requirements are accomplished through third party. SmarterU was the only system we evaluation that was able to track these items with the ability to monitor the renew dates properly.

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

  • It has helped us to make sure our training is consistent across multiple locations and trainers and ensured less drift.
  • The course tracking and certification allows us to manage new hires and make sure they complete all required training to later achieve an RBT certification.
