Why do companies choose Rippling over Zenefits?

Reason 1
Reason 2
Reason 3
A system that grows with you

Many companies quickly outgrow Zenefits and, as a result, have to implement multiple different HR systems. Rippling supports businesses of all sizes and scales up and down with ease—no need to worry about setting up additional systems as you grow.

Configurable, customizable reporting

Zenefits offers only a limited number of available reports, without giving users the option to build their own. Rippling enables users to view data their way, with our powerful custom reporting tool, allowing them to visualize any data housed in the platform.

Seamless integrations with all of your apps

Rippling integrates with 500+ apps to help automate the full breadth of your busywork. Instantly add new hires to Slack, issue corporate cards with Brex, set employees’ expense limits with Expensify, and much more.

What we’re hearing from customers

Cenk Y

Rippling saved us from combining multiple platforms and paying and tracking them individually—now all of our HR and IT is in one place. It is a comprehensive, one-and-done solution that saved us from hiring an HR and IT manager (which can cost more than $200K). Definitely recommend that other companies implement Rippling early on.

I love how Rippling Support is so responsive and reactionary. They are there for any question I have and are always very friendly.

I've worked with a lot of HR tools in the past and ultimately businesses move away from them because they refuse to innovate and consolidate softwares. Rippling is literally a one-stop shop for HR, ERP and IT services, so you can't beat that.

Daniel J

Something insanely hard, like setting up unemployment taxes in Ohio, is done effortlessly and simply in Rippling. The customer service and the customer support team (Shout out to RONIKA!!!) makes it EVEN more user friendly and innovative.
