Modern, Intuitive HRIS!HR Specialist (Facilities Services company, 51-200 employees)5th of June, 2014 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 We moved from a very clunky, outdated system and the ability to figure things out on my own because the tool is so well made makes a huge difference!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 serviceHuman Resources Coordinator (Internet company, 51-200 employees)21st of May, 2014 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, 2014 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!

Easiest system to implement and start using.
BambooHR is the only HRIS for usJoe Humphries, People Team at Stack Exchange19th of May, 2014 13:21
When I decided we needed to implement an HRIS, I was afraid the only systems to choose from would be clunky, ugly, and expensive. Then, a handful of my peers suggested BambooHR. After looking at a number of systems, it became clear that BambooHR was the winner.
No more excel spreadsheetsMegan17th of July, 2013 18:15
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 PriceKate17th of July, 2013 13:59
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.

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.
Best in Class!Sabrina Herring10th of July, 2013 15:53
The value of BambooHR is so exceptional that I am implementing it at my current organization, after having done so at prior organizations. From the sales and demo process, through implementation and on-going support, the BambooHR team is relentlessly passionate, positive, supportive and always making feedback count. I can't thank the BambooHR team enough for their consistent excellence and legendary service. Yes, I said legendary - BambooHR is one of very few to truly earn that designation.
BambooHR is an online HR software that provides human resource professionals with the necessary tools to successfully transition from manually tracking employee information in paper forms and spreadsheets to managing it with personalized HRIS (human resource information system), leaving them with more time to perform more value-adding tasks.
Especially created for small to medium-sized businesses with employee count ranging from 10 to 500, BambooHR’s main features include time-off management, centralized employee information, customizable user access levels, customizable fields and reports, and usability for global companies.
BambooHR is an intuitive HR software system that simplifies usual HR tasks like attendance, time-off requests, employee benefits, contact information, trainings and certifications – all facets of the employee lifecycle, essentially. Its in-depth reporting features provide executives and managers insight into vital business indicators like employee retention and turnover rates, and certification and compliance metrics.
From the color scheme to the company logo, from individual tabs to required fields in a report, BambooHR is highly customizable and affords clients the ability to create their own systems based on how they run their HR departments. Customizable and pre-defined alerts keep employees and managers apprised of important dates like anniversaries and birthdays, and due dates for certification expirations and renewals, performance reviews and benefit eligibility.
For BambooHR to automate your time-off management workflow, you will initially need to specify your company’s time-off policies: accrual levels, waiting periods, maximum accruals, carryovers, and so on. Once done, employees will already be able to check their time-off balances, request time-offs from their computers or smart devices, and view a calendar of employees scheduled to be on leave.
When an employee submits a time-off request, their manager is notified through email. Depending on the company’s service level requirements, the amount of time the employee has already accrued, and the number of people scheduled to be out on the requested date/s, the manager can either approve or deny the request via phone or online. The requester then receives an email notifying them of the decision.
Aside from task automation, BambooHR functions as your company’s central repository of essential employee data that includes job and salary history, current work status and responsibilities, location, dependents, emergency contacts, benefits, trainings, and other related information that your HR department keeps on file, including annotations that may protect the company from future litigations. Relevant online documents (applications, company forms, training manuals, performance reviews, handbooks and health forms) can be stored and shared.
BambooHR also has a directory feature that lets you view an employee’s name, job title, employment status, date of hire, and photo. Contact information can be quickly accessed and shared with other members of the organization. The system has basic organizational chart functionalities, but for organizations that need a more robust alternative, BambooHR has built-in integrations with OrgChart Now.
In order not to put your employee data in jeopardy and make certain that information is shared to only those with authorized user access, BambooHR uses role-based access protocols that let you build custom user groups with access assignments based on their job descriptions. Simply put, the type and amount of information users are allowed to access are entirely up to you.
Using any device, employees can log in to their accounts from anywhere to update their personal information, view their time-off balances, training particulars, benefits data and company documents. Managers, on the other hand, can access reports pertaining to their employees’ paid time-off, trainings, certifications and benefits, without the added strain to their already hectic schedule. This is because everything is automated, and report generation can be done in a few clicks.
BambooHR understands that every organization is unique, which is why fields, tabs and reports can be customized to reflect the way companies manage their workforce. You want to track your employees’ favorite color or candy bar? Probably not the kind of data businesses usually keep an eye out for, but yes, those can be tracked with BambooHR.
On the reporting side, there are two ways reports can be generated: through customized reporting or using standard reports available in the report library. Standard reports include Additions and Terminations, Age Profile, Benefit Eligibility, Birthdays, EEO-1, Employment Status History, Gender Profile, Job History, Last Pay Change, Salary History, Time-Off Balances and Schedule, among others. For customized reports, the data filter is your best friend.
If you have business offices in various locations around the world, you would naturally want your employees to use the language they are comfortable with. BambooHR currently supports six different languages (English, French Canadian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, and Dutch), which can be adjusted on a per-user basis.
Popular local currencies are likewise supported, and number, timezone and date formats are also provided as an option.
BambooHR’s native API (application programming interface) client allows integrations with just about any software out there (including those that have been built in-house) to ensure users keep their existing systems, eliminate the need to re-enter business-critical data, and stay working in familiar environments.
BambooHR has ready-made integrations with applicant tracking systems like CATS and HiringThing, NetSuite’s ERP system, performance review solutions like Bullseye Engagement and Small Improvements, payroll software like TRAXPayroll and Simplepay.ca, and time and attendance systems like SwipeClock and NimbleSchedule, among others.
Pricing starts at $6 per employee per month for the basic package, with a minimum spend of $99 per month. This pack offers basic HRIS, limited applicant tracking service, 50MB storage per employee, salary and job history, basic reports, and an employee directory. The professional package costs $8 per employee per month, again with a minimum spend of $99 per month. For this, you get all of the basic features plus employee onboarding, employee self service, benefit tracking, advanced custom reports, custom alerts, 100MB storage per employee, powerful batch editing, and more.
