Businesses today are all about being efficient, and that’s what many CIOs prioritize. IT leaders are constantly seeking ways to streamline their operations and increase efficiency. We have expanded automation capabilities to enhance the IT automation journey. We integrate with BambooHR, a top HRIS provider that serves as the central hub for automations in companies that use it. Additionally, we now offer the ability to schedule on-demand workflows, enabling users to set up and automate workflows without constant manual intervention. Lastly, we have added support for consuming array data when creating automations. BetterCloud bridges the employee lifecycle management gap between HR and IT, enhances process productivity, and enables data accuracy.

Streamlining new hire onboarding and employee lifecycle management with BambooHR integration

Typical HR workflow prior to SaaS Management

A Human Resources Information System (HRIS) is like the main hub for handling important events related to employees in an organization. It covers various processes such as hiring new employees, giving promotions, managing temporary leaves, and handling employee exits. In the absence of automation, these processes depend heavily on manual input to progress. This manual reliance leads to wasted time on repetitive tasks and delays in new employees’ productivity. Moreover, there is an elevated security risk due to potential human errors.

A new way

Our new integration with BambooHR provides organizations with an additional option for efficiently managing the entire employee lifecycle. From onboarding new hires and managing promotions to handling temporary leaves and offboarding, customers are enabled to initiate, track, and manage HR-related events within a single, unified platform in a timely manner. It also helps to eliminate the need for manual data entry and reduce the risk of data discrepancies or errors and helps to maximize their efficiency and reduce the need for manual intervention, ultimately saving time and resources.

“I can guarantee that someone has access to what they need on day one or when they transition to a new role. Employees have what they need faster than ever.”
