Rypple strives to make employees more engaged in their work life. It’s a social platform that helps managers and their teams recognize one another for great work, share priorities and get real time feedback on how they’re doing. Rypple helps every manager be a great manager and allows employees to get real time actionable feedback that they actually find useful.
Strengths & Weaknesses
Rypple is a platform to be used within your company to improve employee engagement and morale. It is not a customer facing solution. With that in mind if what you’re looking for is a way to improve communication between management and workers, than Rypple may be the product you’ve been looking for. With its flexible payment options and free trial period Rypple allows you to tailor your experience to your budgetary needs. However, if your team is small and already has good communication vectors in place, Rypple may not prove useful to you.
