Zillionize Invests in Rippling – Automated Employee Management Platform

Whether you are a small or big company, you must have a formal hiring and firing process for your organization. This process can be simple to complicated and even much more time consuming depending upon your business policies. For example, consider all the paper work and checklists you have to deal with when hiring a new employee, arranging laptop and/or mobile, setting up necessary software on them, creating company email and other necessary accounts on web apps that the employee will use officially, controlling access to those web apps and services and reversing it all when terminating the employee, again with more paperwork etc. Since hiring and firing is an on-going process so going through all of this again and again is troublesome.

On top of that, not just HR department is involved in this recruitment and off-boarding process but many other departments like IT, Legal and Finance etc. are also involved which is a waste of company resources. If all of this process can be automated, it can not only save everyone’s valuable time but also improve their productivity.

Automating the whole employee management process can also bring a strategic benefit of collecting and analyzing almost every type of information about employees which can help businesses take data-driven decisions about their employees. Now, you know the problem and also the need of an automated employee management system so it’s time to introduce such a solution which can practically solve all employee management problems from their hiring till off-boarding.
