If your company is still tracking employee data in spreadsheets and needs a more organized method for managing HR processes, BambooHR should be on the shortlist of systems you consider. The software delivers detailed employee records, customized reports, employee self-service and other tools HR professionals need to automate administrative tasks.

This Software-as-a-Service solution provides real-time access to your data and, as a BambooHR client, you will benefit from frequent upgrades and new product releases. What we like best about this software is the super clean interface. The platform is incredibly easy to navigate and learn plus BambooHR is flexible enough to meet the unique needs of all types of companies. Whether you need PTO tracking, assistance with compliance issues, deeper reporting or payroll integration, BambooHR can be tailored to your business needs.

Because it is so easy to use, the solution can be utilized by any member of the organization, from employee to executive, or limited to only those in the company that need it. Any facet of the organization buried under spreadsheets will definitely appreciate its streamlined, intuitive workflow.

Serving industries throughout the northern US and Canada, this software is a great fit for companies with 50 to 500 employees across most vertical markets. It is a particularly good fit for those companies in the non-profit and high tech industries.

Some specific benefits:

Empowerment - Nobody knows your business as well as you! So we give you the ability to make changes to almost every part of the system in the Manage area of your account. No need to call IT, an HR consultant, or anyone else and ask for their assistance! You easily control key company data with a friendly interface that walks you through any change you need to make.

Also, for the more technical oriented organizations - the API is an incredible advantage for In-House Customizations. The BambooHR API allows our customers’ internal technical teams to access employee data to support their internal needs and processes. This solution is also excellent for creating unique internal workflows, business intelligence software syncing, and reporting needs.

In summary, BambooHR drastically reduces the time, cost, and complexity of managing and maintaining your employee data.

User Reviews for BambooHR

  No more excel spreadsheets

I am in love with BambooHR. Seriously, I've told our whole company that I love it, that it makes my day at work so much more fun (I know! I said FUN!) + I love telling anyone else in the HR profession that will listen how much I love BambooHR. So why am I in love? Simply put, BambooHR has completely transformed the way I work. No more excel spreadsheets or thinking 'mmm, when did Tom + Sarah start?' no more thinking 'when did we do that?' or 'where am I up to with on-boarding our newbie?'… because all I need to do is login and find out. From the user-friendly interface, the customisable options, the reporting (you have to check out the reporting!) + the permissions capability (just to name are few) has made working in the world of 'people' a really enjoyable experience (& as the Employee Experience Manager at RedBalloon – I know what a good experience at work is all about!) Also the customer experience I have received from BambooHR has been world class. The team has been amazing, always finding solutions, keeping me posted, the quickest response email turnaround times and the addition of smiley faces in their emails (I like this!) has definitely made me a BambooHR fan for many many years to come. Oohh + the integration with Small Improvements – added bonus! Thanks BambooHR – love your work!

  Great Software at great Price

BambooHR has been great to work with from the start. Every member of the team has been super responsive and they are constantly expanding services and functionality based on customer feedback. The system is user friendly and the price blew every other HRIS vendor we looked at out of the water. I definitely recommend working with BambooHR for your HRIS needs.

  Compelling HRIS solution

BambooHR is a compelling HRIS solution - With a simple and fast setup, intuitive and smart design, any organization can take control of all its human resources information. All this packaged with what I can only describe as the best application support team I've worked with - Highly recommended.
