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 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

I work as a consultant supporting start-ups and SMEs take the journey through growth, investment, acquisition and disposal. Bamboo creates a cost effective scalable solution that engages staff and reduces HR admin - freeing everyone up to focus on what they're great at. The implementation process is hassle free with Project Managers who have a really commercial understanding of how businesses work.


would be great to have an integrated payroll function in the UK

BambooHR is extremely user friendly for both the HR team and employees! It streamlined so many of our processes. It has also increased efficiency between team members. bambooHR has been a lifesaver!!!


BambooHR does not have the ability for approval and/notification when employees upload documents to their file (update W4, new direct deposit form, etc)

Bamboo HR is very user-friendly. I can access all the HR data and reports I need to with just a couple clicks of my mouse. Employees of all tech comfort levels have been able to log in and use the new system. So far, we are loving Bamboo HR. I am sure that as time goes on and we utilize more of the features, we will love it even more!


The only downfall has been the inability for Bamboo HR to be able to integrate with our payroll system. We would like to use the time clock feature on Bamboo, but we will have to figure out a way to easily bridge the data transfer before we can use that function.

I love how easy BambooHR is to use! It's intuitive and easy to use for HR professionals and employees alike. The implementation is a great experience and the customer service is stellar. Reports are a breeze to create and share and I don't know what I'd do without the time off requests and calendar functions. I've been freed up to do great things rather than be inundated with spreadsheets and emails!


Hmmm, do I have to answer this? I can't say there's anything I don't like. One great thing though, is that if I do have a idea to make BambooHR better, I submit a suggestion and I know they listen!

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.
