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.

This software has transformed our old school (Pen/Paper, spreadsheet) HR department into a more digitally efficient department within a few weeks. BambooHR is an amazing software that is very intuitive, user friendly and has fields and tabs that help to make tracking employee data more efficiently! We are 1 week past our implementation date, and the feedback from our employees so far has been great. They love the time off features, benefits at a view, having access to their own data! Managers are loving the approval flows and the ability to make all of our forms and requests digitally through bamboo, without having to send forms between department. Our implementation specialist was Fantastic!! She was there for us through the entire process and customized several new fields for us. Bamboo had most of what we needed, but we have some specific polices that required some special requests. We highly recommend BambooHR for any HR professional wanting to have a easy to use software!


There has not been much that we don't like about BambooHR so far. I would say the areas for improvement would be expending their Mobile App to allow for a little more functionality, but it currently does a good job. I would like to see a Spanish version of the Mobile app also. As far as the desktop version of the software it's great. An area for improvement in the desktop version would be to have more complex approval flow options that would allow different approval flows for each dept instead of the same approval flow for the entire company. However, we did find a workaround with Bamboo for this for now which works great. Overall this software is a great help to many different types of companies all over the world.

Easy to use, configurable (but they have thought of everything anyway!), simple, meaningful data, the peformance management module. The implementation was seamless. We felt supported the whole away and it felt easy. Value for money.


There isn't much! There is potential for the mobile app to have more features.

Great user interface overall. The software is very intuitive for a new user (love the training material accessible from my profile).
Customer service is absolutely amazing! I receive an instant response when I use the chat box, and the operators are always very friendly and helpful. I used a different software with my previous company, and I definitely did not get the level of customer service that BambooHR provides.


Limited features at this point in time. However, the company always gathers feedback from users to improve their products.

The functionality of BambooHR is just what we were missing in our start-up company culture. The employees love that they can access their info, request time off or view announcements in seconds. The entire team can't wait to see how BambooHR helps our business grow!


The app has limited access but the browser on a smartphone works just fine. Hoping they will improve this in the future.

The interface and the user experience is very good. It's easy to find the information you need. Search bar available. Integrates with Google calendar. But the best thing for us is the All-in-one HR software: we have everything we need in only one software, and if in the future we need a more robust ATS system, BambooHR offers integration with other software. So far, the features I like the most is the onboarding one. It automatizes many manual processes I've been doing so far and provides a very nice employee experience for the new hire. Plus, the implementation process was awesome: defined deadlines and tasks, support always available and very flexible with the time since we're in different time zones. The help center is great. I highly recommend BambooHR.


There are not too many flexibilities regarding customizing fields. You'll need to request and if there are enough similar requests, it can go into production. Regarding the new LOPD in Europe: BambooHR is compliant however regarding applicants consent to register/eliminate their data you have to manually add the question in your application form.
The training module is only to track the training, like a "calendar" and you can add files.
There is no integration with Spanish Payroll partners, but there is the API for integration in case necessary.
The Performance module (add-on) does not allow you to customize it as you want if you already have a performance review process established. The questions are standardized and you can add 3 more if you want. So if you already have a performance review process defined, wouldn't be a good option. If not, however, it's a great option to start it in your company.

I like that it's user friendly nature made it easy to distribute HR tasks across the management team of our small company. It's also very customizable!


I wish there was a performance-lite element to try our some performance features without the entire add-on at the additional price.

BambooHR made the implementation process easy and it's great to have everything in one place. Although it's US based, allowances are made for Australian customers. Leave management and the Onboarding process were huge advantages as we started to use the system and the ongoing development and communication from BambooHR is excellent.


Performance Management lacked features so we have added another provider that has greater functionality in this area. Again, at the rate BambooHR are adding updates and new features, this could be an area of future improvement.

Bamboo is really easy to use - very user-friendly, and is the perfect choice for anyone who wants to take the next step up from working with a dozen different spreadsheet trackers and paper files. It definitely streamlines a lot of processes and increases efficiency tenfold. I've gotten nothing but positive feedback from our employees who like the ability to change their personal information, view their time off and see their benefits all in one place.


I come from using ADP, so I was used to a lot of different functionalities that i was disappointed to find out BambooHR did not offer (i.e., custom report filters, complex approval workflows, etc.). I know the Bamboo team is constantly taking feedback, so hopefully their functionalities will continue to expand over time.

I am able to hire employees remotely and there's nearly no paperwork stacking up to be filed. Bamboo allows me to house everything electronically. The notifications, workflows, document sharing, and ease of use are exceptional compared to other platforms I've used. And integration was a breeze! Our employees are really happy too. They no longer have to stop by the office to grab a form or sign a document. It's all on Bamboo.


There isn't anything I don't like. So far, everything runs smooth and functions the way it's supposed to. This product has freed up so much of my time that I can now focus on more of the things I really enjoy doing-
