Modern, Intuitive HRIS!

HR Specialist (Facilities Services company, 51-200 employees)5th of June 14:25

I love BambooHR! We moved from a very clunky, outdated system and the ability to figure things out on my own because the tool is so well made makes a huge difference! The tool is intuitive, modern, easy-to-use and employees and managers love the mobile features. From implementation, to support, to feature improvement, BambooHR has been a breath of fresh air for our company!

Great and flexible HRIS with great customer service

Human Resources Coordinator (Internet company, 51-200 employees)21st of May 03:57

We started using BambooHR about two months ago. We used their API in order to import all our existing data, so it didn't take us more than a month to set up the entire system. Our employees have been really happy with the new system, which is easy to use and contains all the information, they (and we) need.

Our Company LOVES BambooHR!

Brandie Lamprou, Executive Assistant Corporate Development at DentalMarketing.Net | 123 Postcards - Owner / Designer at EMarketID20th of May 14:41

BambooHr was a real "game changer" for our company! It is easy to set up and get implemented across all levels of users. It has changed the way our company hires, tracks training and reviews, and best of all, the way employees request time off and are able to see their vacation time. We use the Company Announcements on the dashboard several times a week and also LOVE the calendar. its a winner!
