How Can BambooHR Software Help Your Company?

BambooHR software can help you take your company to the next level by streamlining processes so that HR professionals, managers, and employees are free to focus on more important revenue-generating tasks. Not only is employee data storage and retrieval greatly improved with the use of BambooHR software, difficult and time-consuming tasks like recruitment, benefits enrollment, and performance management are made faster and less stressful.

Streamlined Recruiting with ATS

Applicant Tracking Systems are helping to clean out filing cabinets and email accounts everywhere as managers discover the benefits of using software to store and sort electronic applications and resumes. ATS solutions rank and store employee candidate information based on qualifications, saving HR professionals’ time from having to weed out unqualified employees. ATS also make it easy to share applicant information with all hiring managers and other decision makers with just a few clicks.

Improved Onboarding

Once the decision has been made to hire an employee candidate, BambooHR software really gets to shine. Information that has been compiled throughout the application and screening processes is already in the system, so there is no need for duplicate data entry. Employers can also rely on HRIS to make sure that employees understand their job responsibilities, have access to information that they will need to do their job correctly, and can readily view what types of training will be given so that they know what to expect in their first weeks on the job.

Enhanced Talent Management

Transitioning from using spreadsheets and manual processes to using BambooHR software can help to improve many aspects of talent management. Data is kept much more secure and organized than is possible with spreadsheets and is accessible by those who need it. Employees are able to view their information, make updates, put in time off requests, and view schedules from home or even while on the go using self-service options.

Eliminate Learning Gaps

When Learning Management features are used, BambooHR software can help companies to identify and eliminate learning gaps. Making sure that employees receive necessary training can help to increase productivity, avoid employee disengagement, and ensure compliance. Bamboo HR software can provide instant notifications so that training needs are never overlooked.

It has all the functionality that I needed to operate our small business and the ease of use that was perfect for me being the only HR Representative in our company. ATS through hiring, a complete process!


At this point, I cannot say there are really any cons to this software of the implementation. So far so great!

The on-boarding process was awesome. A dedicated implementation expert is assigned to you for the first month or so. They hold weekly 1-on-1 teleconferences to review features, assist with data importing, and handle upfront technical support. It was extremely helpful for keeping the setup moving forward and feeling confident that the system is configured correctly for your individual use-case. In terms of features, it handles (or can be configured with additional custom fields and tables) every common HR task and data capture imaginable.


The only thing that I wish was a little more accessible is the configuration of custom fields and tables. There are a lot of options for customizing but currently all requests must passed through the implementation expert or technical support. They are very quick to act of your requests, but having a way to add/customize on the fly would be preferable when you have an IT person on staff.

User friendly, extremely easy to use for both employees and HR department. Definitely worth the money, made my life easier. Perfect for a small or medium sized company.


I would like to have my Google calendar synced with the recruiting feature (i.e. scheduled interviews).

This software is so easy to use. I have many employees that do not have a lot of computer skills and I was able to show them how to maneuver through the system within an hour. BambooHR is just the beginning of us going paperless, at least as much as possible. I have 4 different divisions in 4 different states and BambooHR has simplified the on-boarding process and extremely helped with communicating between divisions.


While no software or product is 100% perfect. BambooHR is certainly close. I'm still new to the system so I don't have a lot of negative feedback or any for that matter. The implementation process was great, my trainer was wonderful. The system has given me everything I needed. Looking back, I suppose I could say I wish I had more time with the implementation expert. Of course, I started my implementation process at the beginning of the holiday season so both of our time was limited.

It is so user friendly and very customizable!! It's easy for employees to use and easy on the administrative side.


There aren't many things I don't like about it, I've just given them feedback with a few suggestions on features they could add.

- It's amazing how much it covers and makes it paperless and easy for employers to do great work!
- The interface is easier than most other HRIS software out there so employees can easily learn just by clicking around.
- BambooHR listens to feedback and continually looks for ways to improve and innovate their platform.
- I've implemented BambooHR at two employers now and can really say it will work for any business.
- They are always very helpful and cheerful when you need help and contact them.
- In regards to modules, I think they are leading the market for the best performance management


The only thing I would looooooooove to see for BambooHR is more Canadian compatible payroll providers that integrate with it. Right now there is only Blue Marble and Simple Pay. It would be amazing if some big names like Ceridian, ADP, Gusto, or even Quickbooks would be compatible to have a tab in Bamboo that redirects them to their pay stubs and T4's. Or why not next level - what if BambooHR came out with a payroll module themselves and it was compatible in the U.S. and Canada. My mind would be blown in that case.

- It is very user friendly, self-explanatory.
- It offers many different cool and convenient features like holiday registration, company calendar, performance management, an ATS
- It makes the on-boarding of new employees a lot easier; new employees can upload their own documents
- The employee self service is also very convenient and saves us a lot of time
- The customer support service is fantastic, they reply very fast and are very helpful
- The implementation process went smooth and fast
- The reports you can get out of Bamboo are really helpful


There are a lot of different features in there, I used to work with a different ATS, which was only meant as an ATS, nothing else and that was a bit more advanced than the hiring module in Bamboo is. Same goes for the performance management tool, which is a bit limited maybe and simple but for the 50 employees we have it works fine for now. Would be nice if the peer feedback could also be 360 feedback and if it could be requested more often throughout the year.

The user experience is *fantastic*, both for regular employees and for HR people! Not only is it intuitive and beautiful, but it also has personality that makes it delightful to use and not just functional. BambooHR is head and shoulders above the competition at its price point. BambooHR is primarily a software development company and it shows, unlike many of their competitors who are payroll companies trying to figure out this software stuff.


- lack of built-in payroll functionality (though TRAXPayroll integration is good)
- lack of features for building custom job applications
