Rypple Launches First iPhone App for Social Performance Management

Rypple for iPhone Helps Managers and Their Teams Stay Connected and Provide Real-Time Recognition, Feedback, and Coaching on the Go

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 21, 2011) - Rypple, the web-based social performance management platform, has launched the first social mobile offering for managing performance at work. Rypple's free iPhone app allows managers and employees to recognize great work, provide immediate feedback, and stay connected while in a meeting or outside the office.

Rypple's investment in mobile technology makes performance management even more natural, social, and timely. Employees get the continuous feedback, coaching, and recognition they need to stay engaged and achieve their goals. And managers ensure their teams stay focused on the right priorities.

"Enterprises are embracing iPhones, iPads, and other consumer mobile technologies," said Maksim Ovsyannikov, VP, Product Management for Rypple. "Rypple is among the first companies to introduce a mobile business productivity tool for the enterprise."

Rypple's free iPhone app fits naturally with the way work happens today. Users can check Rypple's social feed for the latest company news while waiting at the airport; update teams in real time on the status of a pending code freeze; or post a public 'Thanks' to the colleague who just helped win a major account.

"Saying thank you has become a difficult thing for many people," said Thor Muller, co-founder of Get Satisfaction. "Rypple helps remind us that great work should be appreciated. Now I can let my team know in real time how I feel about them. I don't have to wait until I'm at my desktop."

Managers and team members shouldn't have to wait until they get back to their desk to recognize a colleague or get updated on an urgent issue. Rypple for iPhone unlocks the power of recognition, coaching, and social performance management through real-time communication between managers and their teams.

Key features of the Rypple iPhone App include:

  • Public recognition. Thank your colleagues publicly for great work; your message also appears on a colleague's individual Rypple profile as part of their portfolio of accomplishments.

  • Real-time feedback. Rypple captures all feedback in one place, so it's easy for managers to get a snapshot of employee performance.

  • Continuous coaching. Employees and managers can track their goals and priorities.

  • Company newsfeed. Employees and managers can stay on top of any company news and updates.

The Rypple iPhone app can be downloaded free from the Apple App Store and is available in three versions: freemium which provides basic capabilities; Premium, which costs $5-per-user-per-month and includes access to Rypple's goals, real-time peer feedback, one-on-one coaching, and recognition applications; and Phenomenal, which costs just $9 per-user-per-month and includes Rypple's rapid performance review application, Loops, extensive support, rollout, and integration into existing company work systems


Rypple is a social performance platform built for the way we work today—in real time. With Rypple, teams can share key priorities and get the continuous feedback, coaching, and recognition they need to consistently achieve their goals, making performance management both painless and effective.
