Why do people choose Rippling over BambooHR?

Reason 1
Reason 2
Reason 3
Fully localized platform for your global workforce

You can hire global employees with BambooHR, but be prepared to create custom fields to collect country-specific information. When you hire with Rippling, your hiring and onboarding flows automatically adjust country-by-country. You just select an employee’s work location, and Rippling automatically knows which data to collect from that country. You'll also be notified if someone is being paid below their locale's minimum wage or if their sick leave policy is noncompliant.

Robust, fully integrated spend management

BambooHR requires customers to partner with third-party spend management systems. Rippling’s Spend Management is built directly into the platform to unify all your employees' expenses and card spend into one system — automating all the busy work associated with closing the books and giving your company unprecedented control over spend.

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.

What we’re hearing from customers

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.
