What Modules Are Included with Rippling?
  • Payroll
  • Benefits Admin
  • HR / Employee Files
  • Time & Attendance (limited)
  • Onboarding
  • Recruiting / ATS (via 3rd party)

Rippling can serve as the Core HR system for most SMB businesses while integrating with a company's preferred talent management tools to extend the functionality of the system. The timekeeping tools are not robust enough for blue collar workforces and the ATS that Rippling offers is a white-labeled version of a 3rd party system (Hiring Thing).

Who is Rippling?

Rippling was founded in 2016 by Parker Conrad, the former founder and CEO of Zenefits. Zenefits was once the hottest platform in the HRIS industry before a sequence of scandals, which led to Parker Conrad leaving the company.

Many of the Zenefits lessons learned have been put into practice at Rippling, as they've continued to build sleek, integration-centric technology for small and medium-sized businesses.

Rippling is now one of the fastest growing and most valuable private companies in the HRIS space and is developing new modules and capabilities quicker than almost any other competitor.

What Sized Companies Fit Rippling Best?

Rippling an SMB HRIS, which means the system works best for companies with less than 300 employees. SMB solutions are designed to cover some, but not all HR needs with some gaps to be filled in by 3rd party solutions. SMB solutions are typically more user-friendly and more modernly designed than other vendors. Additionally, they are typically built with integrations in mind and have open APIs.

SMB solutions typically take about 6-12 weeks to implement and often do not require a great deal of work from an administrator to get started, due to the fact that most of the system is not configurable. SMB solutions tend to have limited rules engines and custom workflow tools, which can limit how scalable they can be.
