Why do people choose Rippling
over BambooHR?

Reason 1
Reason 2
Reason 3
Built-in, modern payroll

Unlike BambooHR who partners with a third-party payroll provider that requires a lot of configuration from the support team, Rippling built its own payroll system in-house—making it easy to set up and deeply integrated with your other systems to automate a lot of your most tedious busy work, like updating taxes and deductions and pro-rating checks.

Robust, fully integrated benefits administration

BambooHR requires customers to partner with third-party BenAdmin systems. Rippling’s BenAdmin is built directly into the platform to unify all your employee benefits into one system and automate your busy work—like enrolling new hires, updating deductions, and administering COBRA.

Fully configurable, self-service platform

Rippling offers a ton of customization and unlike BambooHR, all configurability within our platform is straightforward and fully self-service—so you can quickly set up and tailor Rippling to your company’s specific use cases. BambooHR requires admin users to submit and wait for support tickets in order to configure most customizations, like adding new data fields.

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 1 stop shop for HR, ERP, and IT services so you can't beat that.

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.
