Why does a company need full-service payroll software?

Modern payroll software makes managing payroll simple by automating employee wages, accurately filing taxes, and keeping employee data, such as hours and deductions, in sync. It not only saves HR and Finance leaders considerable time with administrative tasks but also minimizes paycheck errors, resulting in greater employee satisfaction and fewer challenges to address. 

Some examples of how Rippling’s full-service Payroll Software would make your job so much easier:

  • You will no longer need to process receipts or expense requests manually. All reimbursements seamlessly flow from Rippling Spend (or other 3rd-party spend apps) to Rippling Payroll. 
    • All employee payroll deductions and contributions to FSA, HSA, or 401k plans are fully automated. No inaccurate & time-consuming manual tracking needed.

      How long does it take to run payroll with Rippling?

      With Rippling, you can run payroll within 90 seconds. Don’t have the time? Turn on auto-pay and never touch payroll again.

      Can Rippling generate W2s at the end of the year?

      Yes! Rippling automatically generates, files with tax authorities, and distributes to employees digital W2 forms, as well as 1099s for contractors, at the end of the year. Additionally, you can select to have Rippling print and mail these for a small fee.

      Can I pay an international employee or contractor through Rippling?

      Yes! Unlike other payroll systems that can only handle US payroll and require you to pay for additional expensive software, Rippling Global Payroll allows you to hire, pay, and manage your entire workforce, regardless of location in one place. Check out our Global Payroll product.
