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.

This product was marketed to us as a school and several schools in our area use the program. However, the implementation team we were set-up with had limited school experience and we are still working on the best way to do some of the timekeeping issues where I know that could have been handled better. That being said from a payroll and reporting side it has been great to capture so much data (at times almost too much) and have the system do automatic allocations of salaries and general ledger reports. The reporting takes some getting used to, but overall I've been able to run reports to see and track just about anything I want. Our employees also love the self service compared to our previous products where they can make W4, direct deposit and other updates on their own without having to get HR involved.

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
Alicia Andera | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Workforce Central

  • I personally feel like timekeeping is very well thought out and has some powerful tools built in. There is a bit of a learning curve but with strategically placed SMEs we were able to get the use and functionality we needed out of the system.
  • Workforce planning has been crucial in planning operational support in our retail and customer service centers. It is also editable and modifiable as needed.

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 - some of the reports' names do not coincide with the data that is pulled from the system
  • System errors - the system crashes regularly on us with no real explanation why
  • Punch accuracy - sometimes the punches from the timeclocks do not feed into the system

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.

Now that the system is installed and operational, the "pain is gone"...therefore we see no reason to change to a different application. There is no functionality that is missing from the system that would drive us to consider another solution at this time. Maintenance support from Kronos is sufficient and updates occur regularly.

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.

It's user-friendly, clear and concise, and informative. I loved how quickly it was to sign up, login, enroll in my benefits, review my benefits, submit my time off requests, see my time off requests that've been approved, and access the employee handbook information. I also loved that when I moved and needed to go in and change my address, it was done effortlessly.

Having no experience with Kronos prior to using it in March 2016, their customer service team taught me how to use it the right way after my initial training at work. I am well-versed in data analysis using Excel and Access primarily, so once I discovered that Kronos had a reporting feature built in, I've used the feature quite a few times to help our properties evaluate their production costs and make good labor decisions. I give Kronos a 10 because once a person takes the time to learn how to use the software, they'll realize that Kronos is far more effective than most, and gives users more ways to access their information where and when they want to.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Kronos and Dayforce are the two timekeeping systems I’ve worked with in recent years. Kronos feels a little more comprehensive and is my primary timekeeping tool both for myself as well as my staff. Kronos is a great tool for a wide range of shifts, working locations, and pay codes. In this context, I would pick Kronos over Dayforce. On the opposite side, Dayforce is extremely user-friendly and has a “cleaner” user interface if that is a contributing factor for anyone. Also, for managers who oversee large teams (30-50 team members) then Dayforce is a bit more simple to approve time cards, hours, and leave. Kronos is a bit clunky with all the clicks, and managing large teams of hourly employees would be a huge time suck to go in to review/approve all.

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

UKG Workforce Central

  • Kronos is much more expensive than the previous systems we were using, so at this point the ROI is negative. The idea is that it will allow us to scale and grow the company more easily so time will tell if that is the case.
