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.
