Asana

Asana is great for organization across a team or across a project since its UI is much better and easier to use than more complicated project planning interfaces and project management software. It’s less well suited to manage projects across an organization since it doesn’t handle budgets or integrate with things like Microsoft project as well so it’s strength are more towards project vs portfolio management.

I think BambooHR is an excellent product for companies from small to moderately large. It is easily manageable by a competent human resources department and provides robust functionality in the areas that you care most. Don't ask it to go too far out of it's lane, such as trying to implement your asset inventory via custom fields. Overall, an excellent product.

Pros

Asana

  • Task Management - Being able to assign resources and time lines to specific activities
  • Project Management - Being able to plan, execute and track project process using this tool
  • Customizability - Being able to customize a solution that meets your needs or activity.

BambooHR

  • BambooHR provides very intuitive self-service tools, allowing our employees and applicants to attach all their contact data, or do their own skills analysis, thus saving enough time in the long run to improve the average interview and hiring speed.
  • BambooHR is well automated, facilitating our operations when working with the process of registering new applicants from search engines, and thanks to its talent measurement tools, it is possible to calculate early which prospects would be the best.
  • BambooHR is an ideal service for the development of reports with group data, since it allows us to include the number of employees added to our staff. Diagrams of different types can be added to these same reports depending on the type of work being carried out.
  • The ease of analytics for hiring planning makes it much less complex and professional than other HHRR services, which is useful when working on employee experience reports during the hiring process to ensure that company protocol parameters are being met.
  • It's nice that BambooHR can be integrated with social media, as employee interaction reports on Facebook or Instagram can be shared through social media. BambooHR lets us know appropriately when a message arrives on these social networks thanks to its message alarm system.
  • In the area of human resources, BambooHR is easily the one with the most options when working with time tracking, where you can make annotations of incidents, and these in turn can be noted in reports that reflect the performance of each worker.

Cons

Asana

  • I think there could be improved clarity around the different levels of Asana. For example, the resources available to paid accounts are not visible from the more basic accounts, so you're not aware that there are expanded options until you look in their knowledge base and see that they have additional features.
  • Exporting projects - you can export a project into a csv, but it isn't pretty. This can be challenging if you'd like to have an archived project folder for open records requests.

BambooHR

  • In case you are working with spreadsheets, BambooHR does not update the information if you have any integration to web services, as in the case of Google spreadsheets, or Microsoft Excel extension, which practically conditions our way of working with these documents.
  • The databases used within the platform are generally SQL, which leaves aside databases from services such as MongoDB, which work with chained data to obtain different characteristics of movement and transfer of information. We believe that the platform is not good for creating a schema based on information from such data lists that we can include in our self-service oriented operations.
  • The sending of e-mails is also quite limited by the platform, as it does not allow us to send e-mails simultaneously to all delegated workers in our staff. Because of this, the process of sending invitations to special work sessions is more difficult.

  • Mobile + Desktop capabilities - Able to use it anywhere, anytime.
  • Task management - Easy to view projects and their progress.
  • Time management - Easy to see what elements require time / how they interrelate and manage the project on an overall basis.
  • Company management - Be able to see from a master dashboard perspective where each project is in its stages of completion.
  • Clear communication - It's visually documented who is doing what at what time so that the whole project gets done.

We have tried other software in the last year and have not found it to be comparable to Bamboo HR especially in relation to the HR functionalities such as workflows, onboarding, automation, user-friendly experience, innovation, timekeeping, and ability to integrate with other 3rd party Payroll processing software. In addition, the employee ease of access and navigation of the platform makes this software crucial within our current culture of multi-site and remote work environments.

Usability

Asana

Based on 24 answers
It is very user-friendly. Takes a new employee an hour to start figuring out how the system works. That's an important factor. You don't want to encounter the issue where employees need a week to understand how the system works. For example, JIRA, I tried using it for a week and I still don't understand the complicated layout. Asana has a simple interface. Once you see it, you get it type of program.

Does not have many problems and this ensures all of users are able to use it reliably. There is a free demo available to illustrate the accurate usage of the platform and even customer support. All of these help in improving the usability of the platform and ensure that all users are comfortable with the platform.

Yes, there is a huge team in the back of the online platform or it looks like it because I have never been left without an answer when I have a question or waiting from a response on my chat .... There must be a huge team, this is so great and I always seem to have someone that is very knowledgeable too. So many times in the past I had to leave with customer service that would connect you with someone else because of the expertise, here everyone seems to be some kind of an expert in the HR function.

I love BambooHR. Reports are easy to run and download and it usually covers any types of requests I get from the management team. You get excel or .csv downloads/reports and it is fast and simple, not too crowded so it is easy to read through. We don't integrate the tool yet but again, soon we will. we just did not had the time to utilize it yet but that's the plan.

I haven't had to use their support so I can't rate it. The fact that I haven't needed them reflects the ease of use of the product. I would recommend that any new users schedule a complete demo of the product to ensure that they are using it to it's fullest (there's a lot of useful features).

Support is effective and responsive. During our time with BambooHR we did not experience many issues, but initial support on setup was helpful and allowed for a quick turnaround on getting started. Since then, few needs have arisen for contacting support, but I would not hesitate to do so and would recommend BambooHR based on the quality of their support team.

The online training team is great. Theis is so well done! very user friendly, very nice to go through. Then you get all those exemples and questions to test you and make sure you understand the training as we go along. This is a great asset from the tool, I don't think I have ever been left without understanding because there is help and additional resources to understand or extra windows that explain terms or answer Q&A.

Alternatives Considered

Asana

I like Nifty as this has time sheets, however we preferred the clean interface of Asana. Nifty was a bit overwhelming when we tried it. Their app on Android wasn't anywhere near as mature as Asana's app.Plutio is great and has many features, but we preferred the look of Asana.

I would say they both have a lot of strengths for sure. Workday manages data on a mass scale a little bit better in my opinion, but Bamboo HR is more user friendly and pleasing to the eyes

There is so much you can do with this platform, it is incredible and so welcoming. We don't utilize it 100% yet just because we are growing and the HR team has not been able to concentrate on other areas offered to us but but we will soon. Which is also why we got the product, specifically because what BambooHR can do to help us meet our growing business needs.

BambooHR

  • This software saves the HR department a lot of time. It also saves individual employee time since you can so quickly look up company/coworker information without having to ask someone else.
  • Having all HR materials online saves a ton of printing costs.
  • BambooHR sped up the onboarding process considerably, especially since HR is located on a different continent than the office I was hired for. There were fewer back-and-forths.
