Great step up from Quickbooks Online Payroll

It makes it easier to hire employees, run payroll on time everytime, deal with the payroll taxes and fillings, and do basic management of employee laptops.

Pros

We purchased this after getting frustrated with Intuit's online payroll and there being errors and the customer service being useless.

In comparison the customer service at Rippling has been amazing, the onboarding was smooth - I was assigned a dedicated onboarding rep who met on Zoom with me to custom-tune the software to my needs.

I love that this makes onboarding easy with workflows - collecting t-shirt size, upload profile photo, eSign contracts and training, etc. All the stuff a large company would do for under $2000 per year for a company of 10 people. It is a great value. Also the MDM of company laptops is great.

Cons

No MDM for mobile phones and Windows clients can be buggy, no Okta SSO integration, and support can take a day or two to get back to you sometimes. Honestly not many cons; the software is great for the price.

Reasons for Choosing Rippling

Intuit has awful customer service, and their product would randomly quit running payroll and require a verification that would take sometimes 1-2 weeks. It messed up our direct deposit schedule and I had to fly back early from vacation once to get manual checks printed. Never had an issue with Rippling.

Reasons for Switching to Rippling

It was cheaper and more geared towards small under 50 user businesses.

Randy Cannon - Certified Public Accountant

We deeply regret having chosen Rippling as a payroll service provider for ourselves and some of our clients. Rippling seems to be more interested in the software itself (user interface) than in their main responsibilities which are to ensure that employees are paid, payroll tax deposits are submitted, and payroll reporting is completed accurately and in a timely manner. In those critical areas, Rippling failed miserably. We will be taking our own payroll and that of our clients back "in-house".

Pros

The user interface is okay, but when it involves something as important as paying employees and tax compliance, employers MUST be able to depend on payments & filings being done timely.

Cons

Payroll deposits (for state & federal unemployment taxes) were not made for a couple of quarters, plus the SUTA filing for Q1 of 2022 was not submitted at all. We discovered this after we began to receive notices from IRS and state taxing agencies. This is UNACCEPTABLE!

There is no compare to the ease of Rippling

Pros

I found Time & Attendance such an ease as opposed to other Payroll companies and believe me there were a lot .

Cons

The customer service is great but there are times where I would like to speak to someone immediately and there is no way of doing that until I fill out a form to contact service. They are pretty fast at getting back to us from that form though.

Pricing , Paychex was never fully honest with their pricing. As a startup company that cannot afford changes like these this was crucial to us.

You will love Rippling

Benefits administration and multi-state payroll compliance are the primary reasons we chose the Rippling PEO model. The ultra user-friendly and modern app-based platform just takes it over the top in terms of ease of use and scalability.

Pros

Our employees love Rippling. It allows employees to self-serve and is very much a time saver in a startup company where we do not have a full-time dedicated payroll or HR resource. It is modern and cohesive one-stop shop for all things Payroll & Benefits. Many features are included that we have not even taken full advantage of yet. Overall it makes us feel more legitimate as a company and less concerns with compliance or payroll errors.

Cons

Some of the templates (such as offer letters) are tricky to customize (fonts/formatting,etc.) For this reason we have not fully utilized or deployed, and that was one of major selling features.
