BambooHR is a bespoke HR platform aimed at growing businesses. It is on the pricier side of the HR platforms currently on the market, but the outlay can pay dividends in terms of flexibility and ease of use.

BambooHR’s interface is extremely intuitive, its stripped-back nature making it simple to focus on the important aspects of the software. It covers all the bases you’d expect to see in HR software, including time off and attendance tracking, HR reporting, and the ability to launch self-service portals. In addition, BambooHR includes many features that are lacking in its competitors. It’s one of the best equipped packages for applicant tracking, and includes many useful onboarding tools for the end of the hiring process. It also offers benefits management systems, and the ability to produce and send engagement reviews.

Another key benefit of BambooHR is the open API, which allows businesses to integrate the software with other platforms you may already be using. This is particularly useful for attendance tracking, where many businesses run separate tools as the ‘front line’ in this task.

BambooHR isn’t the cheapest option available. But if you’re looking for a fully-featured platform with an intuitive interface, it could be a good choice.
