Reviews of Rise
Ease to use it and it is all I need
Comments: It is easy to process the payroll. Time saver.
Export input to excel sheet. Import excel to the system. I can generate reports for all departments. The customize functions is very powerful.
Sometime the system is too slow. Especially on the rush hours, it is take time to go for next step. on the input sheet for search people, I would prefer more functions to search, for example, employee ID.

Comments: Very easy to work with, highly recommend to other companies
Very user friendly, support is very helpful
Couldn't change multiple user wages at one time had to do them individually.
Comments: Very poor and deeply disappointing. Companies like this give the software industry a bad name.
The promises that were made up from but never materialized.
Possibly the worst experience I have ever had with a software vendor. Misrepresented and oversold up front. Exceptionally poor support.

My go-to for everything
Comments: I love the support team and the system. If I could bully any company I move to in the future to use Rise, I would. (I know, I'm mean.)
I love that Rise has an HRMS system that is very user friendly, but I think my absolute favourite part is the scheduling, attendance, time off and payroll systems all being integrated. I enter a time off date for a staff member in ONE spot, the employees' Time Off Dashboard, and that's it. It carries over to payroll, to the schedule, and to time & attendance. It makes for less steps (for me to forget to enter) and it's correct each time because the entry was only done once.
I wish RISE would pay more attention to their app and it's functionality. It crashes a lot, often just doesnt load, and there's no Admin Option on the app, so if I want to review anything it has to be done from a computer.
Excellent value, great responsive support with live chat, terrible interface
Comments: Simplicity for small Canadian businesses running payroll.
The pricing of this product is great, they were offering free payroll for organizations with less than 10 employees at one point, but now it's something that has to be requested. Great value for the services provided and live chat support is convenient. I do recommend this software to minimize the complexity of payroll functions for small businesses.
It is not intuitive to use. Setup is very manual, requiring the user to download pdfs, sign them and re-upload. It's not very friendly towards accountants as the client has to create their own account. Creating a payroll run requires multiple steps, and T4 submission is not automatic. One selling feature of this product was that it integrates with QuickBooks or Xero. There is no integration. There is one guy that can create an Excel macro who requires the exact details of your accounting system setup.
