Ryple is a web-based social performance management platform that helps managers and employees improve performance through continuous coaching, real-time feedback and meaningful recognition.

Designed to build a transparent, results-driven work culture, Rypple replaces the traditional performance review with an easy, social and collaborative approach so people know where they stand and are accountable for achieving their goals.

Unlike top-down enterprise performance management software, which sits on the shelf until annual review time, Rypple’s quick set-up, intuitive Facebook-like interface and social environment make it easy and fun to use. Thousands of high-performing organizations use Rypple, including Facebook, Gilt Groupe, Kobo, Mozilla and Rackspace.
