Recipe overview

Depending on the size of a company and the pace at which the company is growing, it may make sense to have a hiring manager order the devices and accessories that their new hires need, rather than wait for their IT team to have the bandwidth.

As long as clear guidelines are set in place—for example a set spending limit and policies around device specs—you can empower your hiring managers to select the devices that their teams need.

With this Recipe, you can reinforce that spending limit in an easy, automated way. When the cost of an employee’s device exceeds $2,000, Rippling will automatically send a notification to the hiring manager and Device admins, alerting them to the situation.

Want to increase your threshold on device spend? As with all our workflow Recipes, you can customize this template to your exact needs, including when it should trigger, what the actions should be, who it should go to, and more.
