Top 5 HRIS Platforms Integrated with Lattice:

1) ADP

ADP Workforce Now is a comprehensive HRIS solution that offers a wide range of services, including payroll, HR, recruiting, and more. It is best suited for mid-market companies with 50-500 employees.

Strengths of ADP Workforce Now include its market-leading payroll processing and tax filing services, mobile-centric employee experience, solid global payroll offering, and improved integration capabilities. It also offers unique outsourced services like Comp Services and robust security measures.

However, some weaknesses of the platform are its historically challenging customer support, less-than-unified experience due to its development through acquisitions, multiple database architectures leading to manual re-entry issues and challenges in obtaining real-time data for reporting, and simultaneous investment in multiple HRIS systems.


  • Market leader in payroll processing and tax filing services
  • Mobile-centric employee experience
  • Strong global payroll offering due to Celergo acquisition
  • Improved integration capabilities with open APIs and pre-built connectors
  • Unique outsourced services like Comp Services

2) Rippling

Rippling is a new HRIS system for small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with less than 300 employees. It covers onboarding, payroll, HRIS, benefits administration, and timekeeping. Rippling is known for its modern user experience and onboarding modules, which seamlessly unify IT and HR tasks into one streamlined process.

The system integrates with hundreds of 3rd party HR tools and has open APIs, making it easy to build custom integrations with other third-party apps. Rippling's payroll processing includes tax filing services. Rippling charges companies monthly, starting from $22-30 per employee per month. The platform also requires a one-time implementation fee, typically 5-15% of the annual software fees.

The strengths of Rippling include its modern user interface, streamlined onboarding process, and simple integration capabilities. It also offers a variety of features, such as automated benefits enrollment, compensation planning tools, and a self-service portal for employees.

3) BambooHR

BambooHR is a modern HRIS solution suitable for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with less than 300 employees. The software covers various HR functions at a competitive price, such as performance management, onboarding, and recruiting. BambooHR has a very user-friendly interface and offers an applicant-tracking system with superior functionality to other HRIS systems. In addition, the company invests heavily in customer support, with one of the highest-rated support teams in the industry.

The system is quick to deploy and easy to set up, making it ideal for SMBs. However, it may have limitations in terms of customization, and some modules, such as performance and time & attendance tools, are essential and do not allow for much flexibility. The BambooHR platform only recently started offering a benefits management tool, and some users still prefer to use a third-party tool for a complete HR suite. The integration capabilities are prioritized, but custom integrations can be challenging to build due to a lack of professional services resources.

BambooHR charges a monthly or quarterly subscription fee between $9 and $14 per employee. In addition, there is a one-time implementation fee of around 5-15% of the annual software fees.


  • User-friendly interface
  • Competitive Pricing
  • Robust support teams
  • Superior applicant tracking system
  • Pre-built integrations with many leading third-party HR tools


  • Limitations in customization
  • Inexperienced benefits management tool
  • Basic performance management module
  • Payroll system was added via acquisition

4) UKG

UKG Pro is a full-suite HRIS system that serves as a one-stop-shop for mid-sized and early-enterprise companies, covering everything from payroll and benefits to recruiting, onboarding, performance, and learning. UKG Pro is utilized by companies as small as 100 employees and as large as 100,000. UKG Pro is known for its HR and talent management strengths and is considered a Mid-Enterprise HRIS.

UKG Pro strikes the ideal balance by offering a robust and highly configurable system without requiring mid-market companies to employ IT or consulting experts. The UKG Pro's solid corporate culture leads to high retention and experienced customer support teams. UKG Pro's premium pricing may be more robust than some smaller market segments require.

The integration potential of UKG Pro has been notably enhanced in recent years, boasting open APIs and a broad selection of premade connectors. UKG Pro can be a global record system for international companies, but most of UKG's service teams are US-based.


  • Strong HR and talent management tools
  • Highly configurable and approachable for mid-market companies
  • Delivers a robust user experience for admins and employees
  • Improved integration capabilities with open APIs and pre-built connectors
  • Can serve as a global system of record for international companies


  • Wait times can be longer for smaller customers
  • Some challenges with its underlying architecture
  • Limited global payroll solutions, relying on partnerships
  • Developed through acquisitions and 3rd party white labeling

5) Workday

Workday is a popular enterprise HRIS system that covers everything from payroll, benefits, and HR to recruiting, onboarding, performance, and learning. It is primarily designed for companies with over 2,000 employees and is known for its highly configurable system and approachable user interface. Workday is also a cloud-native platform with a unified product architecture, making it easy to build third-party integrations with other systems.

Despite being a robust and powerful HRIS, Workday is user-friendly and can help drive employee self-service. Workday has acquired leading technologies in talent management and provides robust functionality around performance management, employee engagement, compensation management, workforce planning, and succession planning.

For mid-market companies, Workday can be a hefty price tag. Its complexity necessitates the services of full-time consultants or HRIS managers for maintenance. Furthermore, its ATS lacks power and potency compared to third-party applications that talent acquisition organizations favor more frequently.


  • Highly configurable system
  • Approachable user interface
  • Cloud-native platform with a unified product architecture
  • Strong talent management functionality
  • Robust partner marketplace and integration capabilities
  • Strong global capabilities


  • An expensive solution in the marketplace
  • Full-time consultants or HRIS managers may be required
  • ATS is not the most potent offering
  • Not a good fit for mid-market companies
  • Diverted investment away from HR enhancements
