Rippling vs. Gusto: What’s the difference?

Rippling is the only software that fully automates your most repetitive HR and IT busy work. How? By unifying all your siloed HR and IT systems—like payroll, benefits, time tracking, app and device management, and more—within a single, easy-to-use platform.

Why choose Rippling versus competitors like Gusto?

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

Many companies quickly outgrow Gusto 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.

Seamless integrations with all of your current apps

Rippling integrates with 400+ apps to help automate the full breadth of your busy work. Instantly add new hires to Slack, issue corporate cards with Brex, set employees expense limits with Expensify, and much more.

Small and large group benefits with a broker of your choice

Unlike Gusto, Rippling supports small and large group benefits. We’re also the only HR platform that supports every broker, which means you can choose to work with one of our brokers or your own.

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.
