BambooHR

First of all, BambooHR is not cost-effective if you do not have a lot of processes that you are looking to streamline. In short, you need to examine what you are currently doing and determine whether BambooHR has an equivalent process that can replace it and help make things smoother. Mid-size companies might have better success with BambooHR given the cost, as well, but smaller companies can manage if the budget is there. If you're looking to provide more self-serve options to employees and free up your HR team/individual to do more on the strategy and development side of HR, BambooHR can definitely help with that. Ultimately, you need to consider the ROI on BambooHR and whether its implementation will provide the right amount of benefits to justify the change overall, which may be harder than it sounds in some cases.

Hiretual

We have been using Hiretual for a wide variety of roles, including filling our own internal Talent Acquisition roles. This product is comparable and as or more effective than Entelo and other advanced sourcing tools. We have found using Hiretual to be a boon to our rural recruiting efforts which can be incredibly complex and difficult to handle. Hiretual allows us to scale our sourcing efforts from small to large needs effortlessly and has been invaluable for us since we started utilizing it. Ultimately, when optimized, TA teams can earn a great deal of efficiency utilizing this tool to its fullest capacity.

Pros

BambooHR

  • Helpful homepage that includes lots of useful information at a glance. I especially like the "Who's Out" section which shows photos of all the employees not in the office. Because we are a global company with lots of offices in different time zones, it's essential to know who's on vacation for communication purposes.
  • The interface is very user friendly. The functionality felt intuitive the first time I used it: I instantly knew how to request time off, look up other employees, etc.
  • The employee directory is very useful. It displays everyone's title, photo, LinkedIn, contact info, etc. It's easy to search by name, title, department, etc. and to create custom filters.

  • Talent sourcing aggregate (known by Hiretual as AI Sourcing).
  • Custom insights based on search criteria.
  • Contact information & social link retrieval.
  • Applicant Tracking System Integration -- At OnPoint we use Lever as our ATS. Hiretual allows us to export candidate data directly into our ATS and associate said candidates to a specific requisition, & in a specific stage.

Cons

BambooHR

  • I found the playform not so intuitive when it came to customizing user role permissions. Again, I had no formal training, so I suspect this is more user inexperience vs a system issue.
  • Very minor, but to access the main company calendar you have to hover over a particular section of the homepage. Employees would often struggle to find this.
  • I honestly cannot think of anything else. It really is a well thought out and designed platform.
Sonny Spencer, ACA | TrustRadius Reviewer

Hiretual

  • Honestly can't give any insight into improvement and even if I could they are consistently updating to be the one-stop shop for sourcing.

I like the fact that they keep sending you new information and keep you up to date to interesting Human Resource subjects of what's happening on the market . It is also a very dynamic and "young" platform with easy to read materials. the website, the colors and the front used is also very attractive and make the overall product very desirable.

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.

The few times that I haven't been able to quickly figure out how to do something, I have emailed my support person and have gotten a response within a couple of hours. The system is very intuitive and if you have ever run online searches using Boolean techniques, Hiretual is very easy to understand (but you don't need to know Boolean to be successful with the tool).

  • We had had an overall good experience; however, when there have been a handful of times when errors occurred in reports after payroll processing, and it has sometimes been difficult to get responses from support promptly.
  • We had a significant issue with 1099 processing as there was a printing error on Bamboo's side; however, despite our reaching out to check the status, the rep communicated a timeline that was not met. We were not contacted until the day before the IRS deadline that our 1099's were not printed and would not be processed in time. This specific situation has caused us to prepare our 1099's in the future either internally or through another party.

Everyone from the customer reps to the c-suite always makes themselves available to answer questions or help us troubleshoot and issues that may arise. We haven't found many issues the tool but when we have questions about the utilization of the tool or how to utilize its advanced capabilities, the reps at Hiretual always make themselves available to us.

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

Hiretual

HIRETUAL is listed as "Recruiting Software", but really it's an email contact scrapper that is geared towards recruiters, but can also be used by other departments (Marketing, Biz Dev, etc)... Compared to other similar products (Lusha, Nymeria, Discover.ly, Clearbit, Connectifier, Hunter.io, etc) it's consistency and accuracy + tolerable pricing definitely makes HIRETUAL one of the better tools in its category.

Return on Investment

BambooHR

  • The less time our employees need to go to HR for questions and requests, the faster we are able to move and get things done which allow for people to continue working on their day to day jobs. We have insight into when people will be in and out of the office and can schedule things accordingly. All around insight into employee information is fantastic. Great product.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Hiretual

  • The combination of Hiretual and Lever as a sourcing tool and outreach tool, respectively, has allowed our recruiters to maximize multiple touch-points with candidates. Message frequency automation gives recruiters the ability to set up "nurturing campaigns" to touch candidates 3-4 times each, before giving up.
