Bamboo HR vs SilkRoad: My company currently looking at HRIS software- Any recommendations?

bamboo hr

We are a small start up (75 people) and looking into HRIS providers, we narrowed it down to SilkRoad red Carpet and Heartbeat, or Bamboo HR +Benetrac so far . Anyone here has used either: Silkroad is much more integrated and more powerful, but maybe overly complex for our size. We have heard of synching issues between BambooHR and Benetrac. Or any other recommendations. Thank you

Hands down Silkroad ... they have a suite of offerings and you can use what you need, even Iif you are only 75. We used Benetrac a couple of years ago and it was hard to use and poorly supported.

There are two main types of Business HR software packages: Core HR and Strategic HR.

Core HR refers to the traditional, “administrative” HR functions like benefits admin, attendance tracking, processing payroll, etc.
Strategic HR packages, on the other hand, help you with more forward-looking strategic tasks like hiring and retaining the best staff and tracking their long-term development.
Not all of the software suites focus on one area or another—there’s often a lot of crossovers, and some packages cover everything, while others are more niche. But it’s a useful distinction to keep in mind as you decide what you’re looking for.

Bamboo HR vs SilkRoad both are one of the best hr software but it's always good to compare at least 4-5 software like Zoho People, Namely, Gusto, Zenefits and CakeHR.
