Product Description

The workplace of the future is about the employee experience. That’s why, in addition to software that manages your payroll, scheduling, time off, and benefits, Rise integrates with a range of tools to help you build a world class culture, all connected through one central hub. - See more at: http://rise.xyz/#sthash.wfauSJY0.dpuf

How do you position yourself against your competitors?

Human resources software of the past was made up of disparate systems, multiple logins, and clunky outdated technology. There was a continued disconnect between HR and the employee experience.

With Rise, you can streamline HR administration and bring people and culture to the forefront. The Rise People & Culture Platform allows you to see all administrative and culture-building tools with a single sign on, experience a beautiful user interface, and foster an incredible team member experience.

What do you like best?

I like that Rise is a Canadian company and is able to keep our information on Canadian servers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Rise doesn't offer many of the features that I had come to expect from an HRIS. There is no document signing, it's difficult to set up specialized reporting structures, it's hard to find employee salary info in once place. It's just lacking. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would carefully consider what business requirements you're looking to fill with Rise as it is lacking several features other products have. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is nice to have our employee time off and payroll handled by Rise, especially as they keep the info in Canada. Our team likes being able to access their time off quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Automation with amazing support! Easy enough for a newbie like myself, and whenever I had a question, they resolved it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I can't think of anything! It was hard to get a hang of it, but that was because I didn't understand Payroll to start with, but Rise helped me overcome both of those Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Look no further - this system is amazing and is backed up by amazing support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was making a big change in my company from Contractors to Employees. I didn't want a huge payroll headache, but I'd also never done it before and was feeling a bit overwhelmed. Then I found Rise, and not only did they help me get started with their software, they helped me figure out a ton of my questions around payroll. I was worried that even after finding a great free software, I wouldn't be able to make good use of it due to my lack of knowledge about how to do payroll in the first place. They bridged that gap for me and it's not lost on me how much of a headache they have saved me. I am so grateful these good folks are out there... thank you, Rise.

What do you like best?

I absolutely had to leave a review for the incredible service from Rise. The website is intuitive and user-friendly. When you first sign up, you can enroll in a free Webinar where they walk you through setting up. I am just amazed at the helpful, quick, and friendly service I receive. This truly is an example of a superior business.

The service is free when you have fewer than 20 employees, but I am certain that once my business grows I will stay with them, I highly recommend using Rise for all your payroll needs.

I can finally be my own accountant. Dennis Wong was an amazing help as a beginner Rise user. Dennis went above and beyond in helping me set up my profile and payroll options, and was patient in answering all my questions. Dennis was thoughtful with advice and recommendations - taking the time to understand my business in order to find best options for me. I appreciate all of the help.

What do you like best?

The service desk people are very knowledgeable and helpful when you need them. The system itself works quickly and I am able to complete my payroll (15 people) within about 10 minutes. The reporting is more than adequate for my business analysis needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some of the Payroll instructions can be a bit confusing but the help desk people are able to help me choose the best one in the event I am unsure. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Ensure that you clearly understand what the various Payroll Instructions are intended to accomplish so that you implement the right ones. Spend some time on the Help site to explore these and then ask the helpdesk any questions you are still unsure about. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ease, speed and reliability of payroll completion is a breeze and takes minimal time and effort on my part. I am now looking in to the time off manager component as a centralized way to help my employees know how much vacation time they have banked and book vacation time etc while making approvals easy for me.

What do you like best?

The product is easy to use with capability to add new users and custom pay types and pay periods. There is flexibility and is a stable product. A bit user unfriendly in some ways including the need to manually enable email notifications for each employee. Biggest downside is that there is no direct integration to QBO or Xero despite the fact that this was a selling feature during the sales process. All things considered though, it's a good product on the market given the price. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It does not directly integrate with QBO or Xero. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Onboarding team is great, particularly Bhuvi who is always there to fix any issues. Software is glitchy but does the job.

Does not have a good accountant portal and clients must sign up on their own. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automatic email notification to employees, which is not available in QBO. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Hi Jenny,

Thank you for your kind words on our product functionalities and for sharing your great experience with our onboarding team.

We aim to continue to improve on and add new product features to make the Rise experience as user-friendly as possible. In regards to QBO and Xero integration, we currently have an option to export Journal Entry data into the format needed for QBO and Xero. That said, we will pass along your direct integration request to our development team for further consideration. Our team is also working on a simpler process for email notifications for employees.

If you have additional software feedback to share, please feel free to reach out to our support team via the contact info listed below.

What do you like best?

At the end of the day, Rise solves a problem and allows us to do our payroll quickly and without much hassle. We're grateful we found Rise, and we'll certainly be sticking with them for the foreseeable future, as they're solving a real problem we had. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Rise's system is a bit complicated, which is unavoidable to some degree when doing something complex like payroll, so there's a learning curve involved. That said, Rise does a good job of walking you through the process in length. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Rise is our first payroll solution, and it's solved our problems well. I can't compare it to another competing system, but I do know that the pricing (free under a certain number of employees) is quite compelling, and is unlike most of the other vendors we considered. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our payroll was not organized prior to using Rise, and Rise has fixed that – it's really been a game-changer on that front. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The setup for new employees is simple. The helpline (online and by phone) is very friendly and helpful when it comes to asking for help. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have ran into various issues when Rise is giving us wrong information on certain payroll treatments. I would expect Rise to provide us with payroll support, including how to calculate vacation pay etc. There are times when I feel like I had to do the research on my side and then educate Rise on how to put the calculation together. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

May need to have a HR specialist in the office as I wouldn't recommend relying on Rise fully on payroll issues and treatments. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a growing fintech company and expanding very quickly. There are constant changes in the company and therefore we are always in contact with Rise to change the way we build departments. There are certain reports that we have used that enables us to calculate FTE. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the easy data input, which resembles a spreadsheet style layout (great for finance folks!), the system is easy enough to use (simple logics, easy formulas for new codes), I also like the email statement delivery (better than paper statement of earnings or logging into other services, or even the website itself to get statements), and I also like the ease of reporting - I can easily design reports or request help, and their team is friendly and easy to work with, should I have any requests.

I also love their fee structure. It's simple without all the nickel and diming that is so prevalent with other providers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not a lot to gripe about. I wish it was simple enough to get the regular journal entries for our payroll without bugging their team all the time for it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a very straight forward product with simple data entry all on one page, and everything is laid out in a logical manner that makes it easy to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem was having confusing platforms that had steep learning curves, having to distribute paper copies of statement of earnings (or having employees having to login to other sites to retrieve statements), and getting rid of per-service pricing, which was difficult to predict and confusing to understand (e.g. cost to do a one-off pay run, cost to prepare year-end docs, costs to run terminations, etc.).

What do you like best?

Better than manual process. Even with its clunky interface, Rise still saves time over using PDOCs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Clunky interface, disinterested support. I've put in tickets and made feature requests that haven't been implemented in years. I get a notification at midnight right before payroll data is due at 10am. If I'm asleep before I get the notification, I have to rush in the morning to get it done. I can view my payroll reporting schedule in Rise, but can't export it into my calendar so that I get earlier notifications. I've suggested/requested letting the user specify when they get the notification and calendar export but after asking for it for a year and a half, I don't expect it to happen. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are lots of other options out there for payroll right now. I think Rise has refocused. You should consider other options. The main reason we're still with them is inertia and the challenge of moving to a new system mid-year. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Time spent doing manual payroll. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

From the sales demo, to the onboarding, everything went amazingly smooth and seamlessly. Moving payroll over to another company would seem daunting; however, not with Rise's amazing onboarding. Hub/Time Off is super easy to use and requires little, if any change management. Rise's payroll system is a lot more modern than ADP's. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

So far, nothing. We had some early requests into adding "Days in lieu" and it has already been completed and is read to roll out. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

More accurate T4 reporting within payroll. A better pay stub distribution system. No more errors in vacation day tracking in an Excel spreadsheet. In short, saves us time, and therefore, money. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is fairly intuitive. I like the design of it and everything is clearly labeled and easy to find. I appreciate the option to chat with a rep and always having my calls answered.

I really like the option of creating reports within the time off hub for policies used. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are some options that I feel are missing. I would like to be able to see time off accrued as well as the total time. For our organization, this would be extremely useful.

Also, I get an error message frequently. I wish I was able to toggle between payroll and the other hub. Instead of logging in to each platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Rise offers free service to small businesses that have only a few employees. Admittedly, we feared that "free service" may mean "free of service". That is not the case. We receive full support, and feel very well cared for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not having direct experience with other payroll service providers, I don't have benchmarks for comparison. We found some of the on-boarding experience to be a little tricky, but nothing insurmountable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Thanks for your feedback! We’re glad to hear that you’ve found Rise to be user-friendly and time-saving.

We completely understand that it might be frustrating that changing payroll dates at the last minute may take up to three business days, but that is unfortunately out of our control, as we have to change the time/day that we pull the funds from the bank. It’s the banks that take time to adjust and approve these withdrawals.

If there are any further questions or concerns you have, or if you’d like more information on changing payroll times and days, please feel free to reach out to us -- we’d be more than happy to help you.

What do you like best?

The easy-of-use and reporting features are outstanding. I have had the experience of working with various other service providers in my payroll profession and have found no other platform that is this user friendly. The Rise team is always there to assist with reporting needs, compliance questions and takes a tremendous amount of pride in building a relationship with their clients. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The thing I dislike most is the use of the utility that is used to import data from our timekeeping software. However I will say Rise is currently working diligently to improve this process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Simplicity of the system. Implementation was easy, didn't take a tonne of our time, and went relatively smoothly. Liked the simplicity of reporting system and of the time off planner. Employees found it easy to book time and see balances. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Were unable to deliver on accurate taxation, submissions and RL-1's for the province of Quebec. We had their largest group ever in Quebec and they weren't ready for us. They are constantly improving which is something very good, but when we started, they weren't ready for Quebec. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
