BambooHR

If you are managing a small/medium-sized organization with up to 500 employees, BambooHR is a great utility. It will automate the entire recruitment and selection process, make time tracking benefit administration highly efficient, and enhance the integrity of annual performance appraisals. It will eliminate nearly all kinds of unnecessary record management and paperwork. All the information about an employee can be accessed at any time of the day. However, for a large organization, the HRIS can erect virtual walls among employees and make management of human resources a daunting task for the HR manager.

Brightmove

Brightmove is well suited to a large active team of recruiters. It is too expensive to be good for a smaller shop, especially if there are several users. If you are considering this product, I recommend that you ask about upgrades and improvements, "up time", what the service response is like, what new interfaces they are planning, what will be included in the next release, and how that new release will be communicated in advance

Pros

BambooHR

  • Helps us prepare our payroll on time and do so in an error-free manner.
  • Implements ATS in our organization and this is crucial in growing our talented workforce.
  • It's stable, and all organizations from small to mid-sized are able to use it efficiently.
Martin Oliver | TrustRadius Reviewer

Brightmove

  • Power search is a great tool to search through the resumes in the ATS.
  • It's one of the least expensive ATS options.
Chris Ammann | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

BambooHR

  • Some edge cases aren't as fleshed out. For example, asset inventory management isn't something BambooHR can really excel at currently.
  • Something akin to Google Forms but with the privacy protections of being already in the HRIS would be great for collecting anonymized responses.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Brightmove

  • Brightmove could offer more detailed and user friendly reports.
  • Brightmove could add more screening questions to applicants when they are applying to a job. The feature that is already there is not really useful.
  • Brightmove needs to separate internal applicants from external applicants.

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.

Brightmove has worked well as we are a company with 120 employees. For as long as we stay around this size, we will continue with Brightmove, but as we grow we will start looking for an ATS that can directly tie into our CRM (NetSuite). The price point is great for the functionality when compared to other ATS solutions

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 Customer Support is the best part of using this ATS vs others. They have a chat feature on the home page where you can ask a question and have a Customer Service rep help you in less than a minute. I have found that to be invaluable and a life saver on several occasions. I'm not sure you get that kind of service from a bigger ATS provider.

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

It isn't even remotely close how much better Brightmove is compared to PCRecruiter. PCRecruiter is living in the early 90s, while Brightmove has brought recruiting and ATS software into 2018. Highly recommend it.

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 an excellent rate of profitability in our work season, especially thanks to the optimization of our operations through BambooHR.
  • Currently estimated gains appear to be 500%, which leaves our ROI at 4, demonstrating that the platform has a high return on investment.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Brightmove

  • Our previous ATS experienced a lot of technical issues and down time which translated to lost revenue for our organization in placements and time to fill. Brightmove provided strong support if and when there was a technical support issue.
  • Our recruitment team increased their productivity by 20% within the first three months of use.
