Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Hubstaff
is a great tool for businesses and I would recommend it to all businesses that
are exclusively managing remote workers. Hubstaff is one of the best choices
for such businesses as it is equipped with all pivotal features that will help
you in giving exact direction to your business. Moreover, it offers spot-on
technical support as well which is a great thing. It is one of the best
suitable tools for every company regardless of its size and equally proves helpful
for freelancers as well.

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

Hubstaff

  • It has all the features that need to have while managing the project like screen capturing, sending invoices, create and view reports, pay and quick insights.
  • It also gives me the reports of my team effectiveness.
  • It tracks all the project progress along with team effectiveness and productivity at the workplace, gives me all the insights into team performance, and also helps me to track team productivity easily.
  • Another great feature that Hubstaff has which is its integration module.
Craig Varghese | 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

  • While setting up automatic payroll capabilities I have to pass through difficult steps.
  • If I talk about its customer support it is very much inspiring and effective too.
  • Difficulty in integration is a serious issue I think that needs to be noticed. Sometimes dragging and dropping features is found to be a bit difficult.
  • There should be an option for live chatting.

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.

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.

Hubstaff has always responded to support requests in a timely manner and has kept me in the loop of changes.When contacting them about future changes/features they've always been upfront on whether that is a change they are looking to make and when that change may occur. Finally, if the person I have communicated with was unable to resolve, they always escalated to the next best person who can answer/resolve.

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

Hubstaff

Wrike has a task based system that you can clock time against, but it just wasn't flexible enough for the type of work we do, particularly the one offs. HubStaff is also really simple to use, so anyone can get started with it without any training or previous knowledge required. It doesn't take up a lot of space and I can manage it from the top of my screen in addition to the app itself. It also has a phone app which is great if some employees occasionally travel

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.
