BambooHR

BambooHR [is suited] in a scenario where a company aims to transform their human resources management process, and automate the whole process for efficient working and in line with keeping a motivated workforce. Its affordable and comes with a simple user-interface and this will help in growing your workflow and keeping the employees records private and confidential.

Eightfold

Eightfold [AI] is great to bolt onto an ATS that isn't meeting your needs to search for candidates, refresh candidate data, or use AI to match candidates to your requisitions. It capitalizes on the data that you pull into your existing system. It is not a sourcing tool in that it doesn't go out and web crawl for candidates to match your requirements. Your TA team will still need to pull candidates into the pipeline but Eightfold's AI does a great job matching candidates to your open requisitions.

Cons

BambooHR

  • BambooHR does not have its own internal chat service, which shows several limitations when you need to work with live comments within the platform. In fact, it is very non-interactive, which limits our direct communication methodology.
  • BambooHR cannot be integrated with office software that specializes in payroll work, which would be excellent when it comes to letting us manage employee payments, and not leaving us with the need to integrate with payroll services.
  • It is a bit difficult to communicate from BambooHR, since the service limits the communication tools of the team by not having chat or instant messaging services without the need to work with an integration that specializes in just that.

Eightfold

  • They could improve with integration across all features within ATS, CRMs, etc. Whenever you send out messages through Eightfold, it does not show that in other CRMs, ATS' - it pulls information from them but it does not export it back to those channels.
  • Calibration on candidate skills, profiles, education, etc. need improvement. They still pull current employees at our company and others who are in process - thus creating a lot of confusion from a Talent Acquisition side.
  • User Experience does need some additional help - but it's a work in progress.

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.

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.

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

BambooHR

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
Hayden Anderson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Eightfold

We found that Eightfold [AI] offered greater functionality than other vendors and their partnership with SuccessFactors ensured our ATS integration would go smoothly. Eightfold offers CRM capabilities, AI matching, marketing campaigns, and a careers page landing site. The breadth of services offered is what ultimately made the selection an easy one for us.

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.

Return on Investment

BambooHR

  • There has been a small increase in the company's profit margin since we implemented BambooHR to cover our recruitment and employee management operations, so we have not only made more profit, but we have also been able to work better.
  • If the return on investment compares to what we were maintaining before we started with BambooHR, it is easy to deduce that there is a profit margin more than triple what it was in the past.

Eightfold

  • Improved internal mobility
  • Reduced time-to-fill
  • Increased talent diversity
  • Super cool career website integration
