Why ClayHR Over BambooHR?

Hyper Configurable & Scalable

Unlike BambooHR, ClayHR is a highly configurable HCM Software. ClayHR allows you to run your organization in the way you want to, not the way you have to.

BambooHR may be a good choice for small organizations with up to 50 employees, but as the organization scales, the lack of flexibility becomes a liability.

For instance, consider the case of custom fields, custom sections and custom tables. In ClayHR, these fields can be created by your team autonomously. In BambooHR, you need to approach the BambooHR team, who then decide whether or not you will get that custom field.

Highly Intuitive UI & UX

Unlike BambooHR, ClayHR comes with a highly interactive and user-friendly interface. ClayHR’s intuitive UI makes the software easy to use even for non-technical users.  

In ClayHR, site administrators can create multiple application menus to make the same software accessible to different user segments in a manner that works best for them. The look and feel of the application can be configured by the site administrator.

Features that you may or may not be aware of, but their absence keeps you away from improving your HR processes:

Comprehensive Mobile App

ClayHR mobile apps (iOS and Android) are comprehensive and allow both employee and administration capabilities, including creating and submitting expense reports, timesheets, and accessing directory. Your workforce can stay connected from anywhere and at any time through their mobile devices. The app comes with a variety of modules including Skills, Document Library, Allocations, Projects, etc.

BambooHR’s mobile application is less comprehensive and the users need to rely on the mobile browser to access the remaining functionality.

Robust Data Integrations

ClayHR is an open API data platform with rich data integrations to external systems. ClayHR integrations with top third-party applications enable you to work the way you prefer. ClayHR integrates with 100+ other solutions, so you can build your own working environment to fit your needs.

Timely & Empathetic Customer Support

Unlike BambooHR, ClayHR provides 24*7 hours of live chat support that is 100% human powered. Well-equipped and skilled executives with sound knowledge of software are always available to assist the customers. This is one of the considerable attributes that makes a software reliable and ClayHR outperforms its competitors in providing timely and empathetic support to customers.

Along with email, phone, tickets, and live support, ClayHR also provides training support to their customers that BambooHR doesn’t. Moreover, BambooHR offers support only during US working hours.

Bottom line

The most repeated drawbacks of BambooHR include the absence of some crucial functions:

  • Inability to customize report filters.
  • In the performance reviews, you cannot create templates for each job profile
  • In the performance reviews, you cannot include skill evaluations
  • Goal management does not allow goal nesting
  • Applicant Tracking is limited and rigid.
  • No inbuilt form designer
  • No inbuilt expense management module

As every company has a unique HR process, so an HCM software must be configurable enough to fit the companies’ organizational needs and ClayHR allows you to create new sections and areas almost anywhere in the application, you can create and model your own business processes.

Ask these 3 questions before making your decision to buy any HCM

  • How capable is HCM software in managing the performance of your growing team effectively?
  • Does HCM software provide methods to analyze and cover the employees’ skill gaps?
  • Does HCM software empower employees to navigate their career plans to ensure continued self-development?
