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.

Crelate

Crelate Talent is well suited for applicant management. It also works functionally well with other job boards and websites such as LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Indeed, ZipRecruiter, etc. Crelate Talent seems to be mainly used for a mid- to large-scale business rather than a small business, for an applicant tracking system, as the management features work best with an existing candidate pool.

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

Crelate

  • The way that all the information about a candidate is readily available at the top of their profile is great and very helpful
  • The amount of filters you can use to sort through candidates is really useful
  • The Crelate team is really responsive to inquiries and suggestions
Rachel Segal-Sklar | 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

Crelate

  • Would be better to incorporate texting feature directly to my existing phone number, rather than use a separate system.
  • Sending calendar invites is a little hard to remember how to do - could be a bit more intuitive.
  • Need faster support - online chat would be great.
  • Click to dial works well, but would be nice to "record" the event in the contact record.

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.

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.

Usually the Crelate support is very responsive and quick to fix any problems that arise. I've personally seen emails of the threads where Crelate support was quick to resolve problems and act courteously while doing so. While I have never called their line, it seems that their phone support is also well experienced.

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

Crelate

  • Easier to use, modern, supports drag and drop. Easy to set up and use. Fewer keystrokes
  • better support than zoho, not as good (but getting there) as PCR
  • Crelate is a smaller company, nimble and has ear of the customer
  • LIke ability to click and dial!

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.

  • Can more easily organize our candidates and we have a lot of info at our fingertips - this translates to quicker processes which is positive
  • We keep all our notes on Crelate - very useful for the whole team to see
  • We have multiple team members scheduling so it really helps to see all the emails that have gone out, to ensure there's no overlap
