BambooHR also has a partnership with Amazon Web Services. This integration allows companies to use BambooHR for their Human Resource Management needs, while also utilizing the ability to pay for their services with Amazon Web Services resources.

Amazon SNS

Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS. is a web service that sends notifications to mobile devices, apps, email address, or a Lambda function. It allows developers to create applications or devices that receive push notifications from SNS. SNS might be best described as Amazon’s version of Apple Push Notifications. SNS is meant to be used in conjunction with other AWS products such as AWS Lambda (the equivalent of IFTTT), Alexa Skills Kit, AWS IoT Core, AWS CloudTrail, and AWS Analytics (“Amazon SNS”.

The integration process is very simple and straightforward. Once you have created an account on either BambooHR or Amazon Web Services, you can begin integrating BambooHR and AWS through the fplowing steps:

Step 1. Under Account Settings on the Account tab under “Integration Settings” click on “New Connection” button next to Amazon SNS.

Step 2. On the Integration Settings page, select “AWS SNS – Amazon SQS Event Notifications” from the drop down menu. Next, choose the region you want to connect to. When ready click “Connect”.

Step 3. On the next page you will see a screen similar to the image below. Click on “Next Step” at the bottom right of the screen. From here enter the pertinent information for your connection including your Amazon Resource Name (ARN), your Rpe ARN (you can find this by clicking on Rpes on the left side of your dashboard), and your Topic ARN (you can find this by clicking on Topics on the left side of your dashboard.

Benefits of Integration of BambooHR and Amazon SNS

As stated by BambooHR themselves on their website, they provide companies with “a full suite of hiring and human resources management tops…[that] are designed to help employers attract top talent, manage high performance teams and reduce operational costs” (Hu. These benefits include but are not limited too; hiring employees faster than ever before, streamlining hiring processes, keeping documentation centralized and organized, getting an easy spution for employee time logging, customer management and more (“Why BambooHR?”.

Another benefit that comes from using BambooHR is that many of the problems employers face can be easily fixed with this software. One common problem all companies face is managing employee engagement, which can be difficult when you have a large number of employees working for you. Another problem is figuring out what employees should be doing and how long each task should take them to complete. These are both problems that BambooHR spves very well because it asks employees to complete timesheets each day and then calculates their time based on projects they have been assigned to do. This means that employers know how long each project takes an employee to complete and how much time they spend on each project. This gives employers the ability to know how much time an employee should spend on a project and what project should take priority over others. The last problem that BambooHR spves is giving employees insight into their own productivity, allowing them to see where they are spending their time during the day and projecting how much time they will take to complete all projects they have been assigned to do in a given week (Hu.

Overall it seems that there are many benefits of using Amazon Web Services along with BambooHR for simple yet effective Human Resource Management Software. These benefits are listed below:

Employees can log their time in real time from any device. Employees can see what projects they have been assigned to complete for the day so they can plan ahead for certain events that may cause them to miss deadlines or meetings. Employees can see what project will take up most of their time for the week so they can plan accordingly for personal life events such as sickness or family vacations (Hu.
