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.

Greenshades Software is well suited in a business where managers and supervisors may not have the full ability to sit down with each individual employee and manage their hours and time. Greenshades Software provides an easy to use website that is simple and concise. However, there are a few ways that it could be revamped to make it better suited to a larger business.

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

Greenshades

  • Better overall website design
  • Easier to edit time slots on timesheet
  • Better notification system for when things need to be approved

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.

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

In my previous place of employment, we used the Paycom system as our resource for managing hours and time. I do believe that the Paycom system had more privacy and safety aspects implemented with their software. However, Greenshades Software is a very user-friendly website that provides all of the resources that are necessary to do the job well!

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.
