More and more organizations are issuing corporate cards to every new employee as part of their onboarding. Why? It's because they recognize that business growth is exponentially faster when employees have easy access to resources and benefits, especially in the age of remote work.

Think about it this way: you wouldn’t get a car without putting gas in it, would you? Why would you hire talented people without equipping them with the ability to spend what they need to do their job effectively?

That's why we've built Ramp for HR, a suite of integrations with leading HR information systems (HRIS) to help you easily issue cards in bulk, onboard employees, and keep your user data in sync.

You can now connect Ramp with:

  • Justworks
  • BambooHR
  • Hibob
  • Gusto
  • TriNet
  • And many other HRIS platforms

Ramp for HR is a big step in our vision to help businesses save time and money through best-in-class finance automation. By connecting Ramp with your HRIS, you’ll save your teams hundreds of hours that they currently waste on manual employee onboarding and user management.

Disjointed systems and manual processes are slowing down your business

Distributed spending is ideal for business growth, but it puts immense pressure on your finance, HR, and IT teams. They’re on the hook for adding employees to the right systems and making sure that company dollars get spent on the right things.

Traditionally HR and finance systems don’t talk with one another. So admins are forced to use laborious workflows to:

  • Add new employees to finance systems—one by one
  • Issue benefits and corporate cards—one by one
  • Ask employees to spend out of pocket and request reimbursement, burdening their personal finances and creating endless expense reports
  • Check charges—one by one—to ensure that there are no out-of-policy transactions that require awkward follow-ups
  • Turn off card permissions when employees offboard—one by one

What a pain! These tasks cost your teams huge amounts of time. Worse yet, they slow down employee productivity and expose company finances to risk and fraud.

As organizations grow, finance automation is critical to keep your finance, HR, and IT teams from drowning in a sea of manual work.

Speed up employee onboarding and tighten spend control with Ramp for HR

Connect your HRIS to Ramp to automate your expense management and prevent these issues. With your HR data in Ramp, you can easily do the following:

Add all of your employees to Ramp in minutes

Track who needs to be added to Ramp based on your HR data. The hours of work normally needed to add your weekly cohort of new team members are reduced to minutes.

Eliminate expense reports and out-of-policy transactions

With all of your employees on Ramp, expense reports will become a thing of the past. Now team members can easily use Ramp cards to purchase what they need for their work.

When employees request new cards, the requests automatically get routed to the right card managers for approval. They can instantly approve these requests via Slack or email and generate virtual cards on the spot for employees.

Ramp makes it easy to request cards through Slack

Every time cards get used, Ramp automatically collects receipts and memos from employees, removing the need for manual follow-ups.

Terminate Ramp access when employees leave

Changes to employee statuses automatically flow into Ramp. You’ll get alerts to turn off card access the instant employees are marked as terminated in your HRIS.
