Likelihood to Recommend

Bambu

Bambu has been helpful to shift our culture from one of reluctance and fear related to social media to one of acceptance.

isolved is great for larger companies who want to have one program that can manage all of their payroll, human resources and time keeping needs in one. It flows together nicely and really does make everything more efficient. If you work for a small business you might not need or want all of the features that isolved provides, but I really think all businesses could benefit from a program like this.

Pros

Bambu

  • A very simple and intuitive UI (both desktop + mobile)
  • User reporting like "Leaderboard" reports which are key for wrapping an inventive program around employee advocacy for top performers
  • Product Management - in the time I've been using this platform the development team is constantly adding product enhancements and are very receptive to user feedback.

  • Flexibility. Schedule templates can be created at departmental level and managers can be made responsible for maintaining schedules rather than HR. Time entries can be edited on multiple levels (punches or total hours worked). New security groups can be easily added anytime.
  • Reporting Power. TimeForce provides a significant number of standard reports for HR, manager and audit purposes.
  • Import Utility. It is very easy to update the system with new employment-related data through by importing .csv documents through TF Import Utility.

Cons

Bambu

  • I feel overall that Bambu is a great, cohesive tool. No major changes or updates needed that I can think of.
Nathan Phillips | TrustRadius Reviewer

isolved

  • Too much functionality for more basic usage. So many bells and whistles that implementing basic time and PTO tracking was more complicated than should be since everything was highly integrated.
  • PTO tracking was a little tricky. Had to manually go in an accrue PTO for employees after every pay period. Instances of PTO requests going through twice, perhaps by employee error, but not being able to easily clear out without deleting entire accrual and starting from scratch.
  • Reports did not come out cleanly. Could view them nicely within TimeForce but once exported to Excel they would lose all formatting and sometimes lose certain data columns.
  • Employee profiles needed to be set up in two different places with repeated data. Was tricky and not intuitive.

I don't have a decision in whether to renew the license or not, however if I did I would strongly recommend renewing the license, unless there were a system that would sync up with our payroll program, then I would lean more to the other program simply from a biased standpoint of it being easier for my position.

I have found as the administrator it is very cumbersome for most individuals to use and it is not very intuitive. An individual that is not technologically advanced will have difficulty using as well as those that are lazy and just do not want to learn to do it. The manuals they give you are not helpful for the web-based program. I had to create my own with pictures for most individuals to understand the system.

Our agency used a 3rd party payroll vendor that was a partner of Infinisource iSolved so we didn't experience Infinisource iSolved support directly. However, our clients seemed to feel that the support was more than satisfactory. We never fielded complaints from them about their use of Infinisource iSolved or the service they received from it.

The system was very cumbersome setting up as well as time consuming. There were times I just wanted to walk away and sometimes I did have to get up and walk away for a break and come back with a fresh perspective. The setup took me over a period of two to three months getting it to serve the purposes that we needed it two. I am very intuitive when it comes to computer software however getting all the right buttons checked in order for it to do what I needed didn't always work.

Alternatives Considered

Bambu

It was similar in that it helped us push prewritten messages out to our team, but the UX/UI was far more dated and not as intuitive. It's mobile app also wasn't very useful; made it difficult to edit messages and would constantly need you to log back in. The two things GaggleAMP had over Bambu however was more comprehensive analytics and the ability to automatically push out social posts
Gita Sukhraj | TrustRadius Reviewer

We have not used other Time and Attendance software except a scheduling system called Scheduler (Custom developed for our business). I haven't had the need to research other solutions as I have always been comfortable with the product itself as well as the support that you receive from QQest. Help is literally a phone call away and maintenance contracts are well worth the purchase price, especially in the even of an upgrade.

Return on Investment

Bambu

  • Positive returns -- sharing our brand and enabling our employees to share and tell their stories, ultimately helping them reach their own goals.
Kelsey Kruzel | TrustRadius Reviewer

isolved

  • The ability for employees to punch in and out from their phones eliminates paper time sheets and allows us to process payroll remotely, improving our time and process.
  • Employees have access to their paystubs, which reduces the number of requests for copies when they need them.
