The dealbreaker for us was that we have multiple companies / legal entities that all needed payroll company service. The companies are all interconnected, sharing office and lab space, equipment, contractors, and employees transfer between them. All other payroll companies we investigated did not offer a multi-EIN feature like Rippling. It would have cost us a lot more and been less useful if we went with any other company. So there was no question that Rippling was right for us.

Rippling is the best!

Rippling seemed to be much more user friendly. In speaking with fellow business owners, many of the other payroll companies I looked into had poor customer service reviews, and the costs were much higher than Rippling. I also am pleased that Rippling offers much more than just payroll. With Rippling, we have been able to expand our benefits packages, track performance among employees, and hopefully it will be a great way for any remote employees in the near future.

  • Proof
Proof was much more convoluted and not easy to maneuver. Also all the platforms could not relate to each other and so nothing was streamlined in its approach. Also things seemed to lag and was not very up to date when it needed to be. I feel rippling has simplified their processes.

Much better reporting capabilities but harder to track employee history and changes.
The Onboarding process and tasks are efficient and easy to follow- I feel like Rippling has all the info in one place while in Workday you have to dig for info. Rippling is much more intuitive and has better design and graphics.

Zenefits was great for awhile, but we did feel we outgrew them as an organization.We have over 270 employees now and will be continuing to grow in HC for the perpetual future. Rippling is able to grow with us and also take us there. We can scale our processes and automate and make more efficient the People and Finance processes we do every day. I feel like with Zenefits I had utilized every feature it had, yet with Rippling there is a possibility for never-ending learning and a never-ending ability to grow your effectiveness by utilizing the bells and whistles of Rippling!
