Features and Add-ons
Fast Payroll Processing
Payroll needn’t be an exhausting process to be exhaustive. With Rippling, payroll processing can take place in as little as 90 seconds. After inputting the workers to be paid and their amounts due, the process can be completed in one click. The payroll processing system is designed to be used by both sole traders and for medium sized companies with more than 1,000 employees on the payroll.
HR - Payroll Syncing
Because Rippling also offers a full human resource management (HRM) tool, payroll records can be automatically synced to the employee’s page on the HRM page. This bridges the gap between HR and accounting and payments (A&P)—allowing the former to see both HR records and payments made to the worker. The result is a more efficient exchange of information which ultimately benefits staff members.
Payroll personnel can use codes to automatically track where salary budget is being spent—drilling down into reports by location and according to the task and location. Additionally, the payroll module has a powerful reporting option. Users can create reports from a library of pre-built templates or build custom reports completely from scratch. Users can also visualize and share the reports with other team members.
Automatic Tax Filing
Rippling’s Payroll tool supports automatic tax filing. After running payroll, Rippling calculates taxes owed and files them with the right federal, state, and local agencies. Even when workers change locations, Rippling is able to automatically keep track of where to make filings to.
Ripping’s payroll module supports payment by direct deposit and check.
Pricing/Costs & Fees
Ripping’s Payroll solution is a standalone component of its offering. Users can use the system in conjunction with the HRM / employee management tool. However, each component of the Rippling system entails a separate charge.
The standard charge for Ripling’s service is $8 per user per month. However, Rippling’s team can prepare custom quotes for larger users that wish to use a variety of services.
Pricing: $8 per user per month
Rippling is an extremely easy payment processing platform for both small and large companies that have payroll requirements. If users use the tool in conjunction with other parts of the Rippling system then full payment records can be accessed by HR. This can assist in more streamlined paying of benefits owed and file management.
Rippling is a useful payroll provider for those that want to quickly and efficiently distribute global payments. The system is designed to be used by both small businesses and 1,000 (or more) person medium-sized companies. The tool features automatic tax filing in the US at the local, state, and federal levels. Its main negative is that only check and direct deposit are supported and that the tool is billed as a separate component to the HR management tool, which it fully integrates with.
