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.

RecruitBPM

RecruitBPM is more suitable for volume hiring and where is speed is key. The product does really well on client and candidate relationship management with auto workflow and reminders.Also in situations where clients require consent form since RecruitBPM has built e-sign at no additional cost.RecruitBPM is not super supportive if you want the Andriod app. Even though RecruitBPM is mobile-friendly, it's not tailored for Android phones.

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.

RecruitBPM

  • I like that the RecruitBPM is simple straight to the point and very easy to navigate through.
  • Collaboration between internal team members has been made so much easier by this software - no more delays as everything is in real time.
  • I think it is a wonderful tool for a start-up company to manage its recruitment program

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.

RecruitBPM

  • It's not feature heavy like Salesforce or Bullhorn, but we also don't need it to be.

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.

All of these help in improving the usability of the platform and ensure that all users are comfortable with the platform.

The support for implementation of the platform was excellent with a very simple and hassle-free rollout. Internally, there has been great support for it from management and to-date most people seem to use it without any notable complaints. Ongoing tech support is fine, but to be honest there is little to go wrong so we have had little need for it.

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

RecruitBPM

We felt RecruitBPM stacks up similarly against Bullhorn, Jobdiva or Vincere, but it's easier to learn and more affordable. We had demo and trail with half a dozen products and our choice was pure base on value. We felt it was a better and cost-effective alternative to big-budget ATS and CRMs in the industry.

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.

RecruitBPM

  • With RecruitBPM I'm being able to manage several job boards from one location helps improve our productivity since we can do everything in one tab.
  • Has a slight learning curve for those who haven't used a CRM before. Otherwise an intuitive and easy-to-understand UI.
  • Easy to use and understand, got the hang of it after 10 mins love the dashboard where you can clearly see the number of candidates per role.
