  • Mobile App
  • Integrations
  • Video Demo
  • Serves Any Size Business

Unique Product Offering

Most HR software on the market do not include IT features. However, Rippling’s platform also allows users to easily set up and manage employee devices and applications. This is particularly useful for small businesses where HR often covers these types of IT responsibilities as well. 

A La Carte Options

Rippling’s most basic product offering requires you to purchase its employee management platform. This platform includes:

  • A unified employee database
  • Customizable reporting
  • Onboarding-offboarding automation
  • Electronic document management
  • Customizable position management
  • Task management
  • Workflow and approval automation

The company also offers the following additional features you can choose to include to create a solution that works for your business:

  • Payroll — Rippling’s payroll feature includes time-tracking, automatic compliance and tax filing, and global payroll options. The site also claims you can run payroll in just 90 seconds.
  • Benefits — This feature allows you to connect your existing benefits package with the platform, or shop for new offerings. It also allows you to automatically enroll new employees as part of your onboarding process. 
  • Talent management — Rippling’s talent management includes a learning management system. It not only comes with access to hundreds of existing classes, but also allows you to create your own classes to streamline your training. 
  • Apps management — This feature allows you to manage employee access to all the applications your company uses. You can easily disable access whenever an employee leaves your company. 
  • Device management — Rippling’s device management allows you to remotely manage software on all employee devices. It helps manage your device inventory and purchase new devices when needed. 

Mobile App

Rippling has a mobile app available on the Apple App Store and GooglePlay. Your employees can access important HR features from their phones and tablets, making Rippling that much more convenient to use.


Rippling’s software integrates with more than 400 different applications including Quickbooks, Slack, GSuite, Microsoft Office, and more. You can browse Rippling’s App Shop online to make sure it integrates with all the software your business uses. 

Video Demo

Coordinating schedules for demos can be challenging. Rippling offers a video demo on its website to make it easier to see its product features. You do have to enter your contact information before you can watch the video, but that’s standard for any self-guided demo. 

Video demos, by nature, are rarely as in-depth as demos provided by sales representatives. However, they will likely let you know if the solution is worth exploring further. Be sure to write down any questions you have while watching the video so you can ask questions to the sales agent later. 

Serves Any Size Business

Rippling advertises that its platform can “easily manage 1 to 1,000+ employees.” With its a la carte pricing options, businesses can select the solutions that work for its needs. It can also adapt to fit your business’ needs as you continue to grow. 


The Bad

  • Lack of Verified Reviews

Lack of Verified Reviews

We do not currently have enough reviews to verify the quality of Ripplings services. However, the scope of its product features speak to its professionalism.


The Bottom Line

Rippling is unique compared to other HR software options. The fact that it includes IT management features makes it very appealing for small businesses that rely on HR to perform these tasks. It solves many other common HR pain points by having a single employee database to pull information from. It’s a la carte options allow businesses to customize services to better fit their specific needs. 

It is an attractive option for businesses of any size. However, you will not be able to find out specific contract and pricing details until you speak with a sales representative.
