Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Leave management is the most valuable as they all started with leave management and then progressed to performance management. Of course, employee profiles are central to everything. It is also very easy to use. Customers get on board with it very quickly. One of the selling points for BambooHR is that they have a very wide partner network. There are lots of other partners that have integrations with BambooHR. They have an open API. This is one of the things that is driving its growth because lots of people and companies are literally just building integrations of BambooHR to ride the wave. If you have an integration with BambooHR, you get sales. People are more likely to choose your product because they've already chosen BambooHR. That's how it is happening. It is a cloud deployment, so there is only one version. They do the updates every month, and because of this, you are encouraged to send them feedback all the time. You never know. Your feature may be included in the next release."

"We use the cloud version to maintain all the employee records, payroll, etc. We use everything that comes with the HR suite.""The best features that were working well for us was the Goal Management and Performance Management. They were the most valuable to our organization.""It's brought to our organization a big big improvement. We would give it a good rating.""The interface is really useful and it's very easy to combine different information. For example, we can easily get reports that we need. It's very easy to create reports.""The most important feature is the ability to follow up on the yearly performance of the team. It's very good for management to understand how people are performing.""The interface is user-friendly. It is very simple and intuitive, so it's good.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the performance management module.""The performance of the solution is very good."

Cons
"It would be good to include more options for approvals and workflows. They are deliberately not the most sophisticated version of anything that they do, but it is like 80/20. They hit the vast majority of all the needs, but I have started to run up against the limits of their functionality. It has forced me to start paying attention to the marketplace or sending feedback to BambooHR. Clients are still happy though. Timesheets is a new area in which they're slowly expanding. It is currently very limited, but it meets the needs of standard nine-to-five salary employees who just want to be able to key in their time, have it approved, and then pushed off to payroll. It does not have any of the bells and whistles that an hourly employee or hourly worker might need. That is one area that is currently limited, but they have integrations with some of the best companies that do that."

"Analytics could use some work.""They should improve the reports.""We have many interruptions and disconnection points into processes, which is why we are looking to another solution. We are not so happy with the system. We believe we have in the market better solution, so we are looking for alternatives but so far the system has been used a lot.""Some of the screens aren't that user-friendly, older employees especially have a hard time with it. They have some problems with it.""LMS, Learning Management Systems, needs improvement because there were some stability problems.""There should be more connectivity with other systems.""The GUI needs to be enhanced to be in line with the latest and complete version of the solution.""he user interface could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"The licensing fees are based on the number of modules that are being used, and the number of users.""I don't want to comment on the license cost, to be honest. It could be about $1,000 approximately per customer. However, it's very flexible in terms of the licensing costs depending on the volume and depending on the deal of installation.""If you go by best practices and do it right from the outset, the setup won't be a costly endeavor. In terms of setup, there is a lot of flexibility compared to three years ago.""It could be cheaper."

Overview

Our applicant tracking system is a surprisingly simple way to reach more qualified candidates and track, share, and evaluate their applicant information. Plus, our ATS module works hand in hand with our HR software, so you can enter data once and you're done.

Collaborators can leave comments, rate candidates, and change applicant statuses—all within the ATS. Permissions let you control what collaborators can view, keeping sensitive information (like desired salary) private. The only hard part will be agreeing on a candidate.

  • Intuitive Interface

    Tech savvy or not, the applicant tracking system is easy to use. Your team will have no problem quickly filtering candidates, rating the best ones with a five-star rating system, and pushing job postings to free job boards and social media outlets.

  •  
  • No Duplicate Entry

    Get new hires’ basic data into your HR software with ease. Simply change a candidate’s status to “hired,” and their information will transfer from the applicant management software into the HR system. It takes less time to process a new employee than it does to say, “you’re hired.”


SuccessFactors helps organizations align strategy with objectives & manage people performance to ensure execution & results. Execution is the difference.
