Bamboo is more versatile for large enterprises where as Sage HR is better for smaller/mid-size businesses. Both systems have very similar features and functionality. Sage HR has great tools for companies with multiple locations which has benefitted us in tracking employees' time, resources, and performance. Both have similar customer service and it really comes down to what features you are wanting to focus on as a business.

We selected CakeHR because it was plug and play. There was no long "onboarding" process or extra required "onboarding" fees. We didn't require the job posting module, but rather the asset and time tracking sections. We had the entire system up and populated within 10 days.

I searched for plenty of HR applications. Some wanted a ridiculous amount of money but didn't have many features. One wanted us to move our payroll over to them which wasn't an option. As a smaller to mid-sized company 50-200 employees, we have a central accounting dept that we wanted to keep most of our processes with. CakeHR delivered with all the needs plus more. I know there are some features we are not using because they don't fit our needs at this time but I am aware of them. Finding a web-based application that solved all of our needs and more was a homerun for us. All the others I searched were always missing or wanted us to pay substantially more for a key component we needed.

CakeHR (for me) had the best combo of price, features, and functionality for what the business needed. It had transparent pricing unlike some of the others and although many are quite similar, for me one of the standout things is the constant updates and strong customer service.
