Why Do Companies Prefer Paylocity Over Rippling?

Unified Solution

Paylocity’s all-in-one platform is a complete solution that covers both end-to-end HCM capabilities and employee engagement, from recruiting and onboarding to time tracking and benefits. Our Marketplace also provides flexibility with integrations to 350+ complimentary business systems including benefits and 401(k) providers.

Rippling lacks employee-focused experiences such as peer recognition, chat, and collaboration. Their marketplace also has fewer HR integrations, like benefits and 401(k) providers.

Trusted Industry Leader

With deep industry experience, Paylocity has become the fastest growing publicly traded company in the HCM space by total revenue growth. As we’ve grown, we’ve reinvested in our technology so we can continuously innovate and deliver the most modern platform in the industry, forming lasting relationships with our 35,000+ clients and counting.

Rippling has only been in business since 2016 and does not have as established a track record or as many clients.

HCM Built to Scale

Paylocity is an end-to-end solution developed from the ground up, built to meet the needs of organizations as they scale to 5,000 employees and beyond. We continually enhance our platform and service to meet the needs of large clients. Don't just take our word for it — clients have rated us a leading enterprise provider on G2.

Only 1% of Rippling’s reviews on G2 are from enterprise clients.

Superior Implementation

Your success begins right from the start when our expert in-house implementation team works to customize our solution to meet your needs. Reliable, friendly service, and deep expertise ensures you get the support you need to stay focused on your business, with 90% of calls answered in a minute or less.

Although Rippling also provides ongoing service, implementation is largely self-serve, with limited support.
