BambooHR Adds OneLogin to Improve Access Management

Toolbox

BambooHR, a Utah-based HCM technology platform that focuses on small and medium-sized businesses, has integrated tools from OneLogin, a San Francisco firm that seamlessly enable employers to control identity and access management.

Toolbox“We’re confident that this new partnership will help IT and HR teams collaborate more effectively and provide more value to their organizations,” said Ryan Sanders, BambooHR’s COO, in a press release.

OneLogin continuously checks for employee status updates in BambooHR, using status updates such as newly-hired employees or role changes to trigger IT tasks such as configuring accounts or updating access permissions. The result, Sanders said, will be improved onboarding and offboarding, as well as enhanced data security.”

Onboarding and offboarding are complex and detailed processes that require HR to provide timely, accurate employee data so IT resources can complete tasks associated with adding and exiting employees, not to mention manager their system access permissions during their time with the company. More often than not, these chores range across separate and unconnected systems.

OneLogin automates many of the associated workflows in real-time. It synchronizes BambooHR data across all IT systems, from business applications to directories such as AD, LDAP and Google. By turning to HCM solutions as the primary data source, OneLogin says it returns control of the employee experience to HR and allows IT to step back from day-to-day management so it can focus on other priorities.

OneLogin was recently called “a pioneering startup in the identity-as-a-service realm” by VentureBeat. Though it faces increasing competition, the company has enhanced its product, has continuing interest from investors and a solid technical foundation, the website said.

In September, BambooHR announced partnerships with background-check company GoodHire and performance-management firm Lattice. GoodHire allows customers to identify which candidates might need a background check from within the BambooHR environment, while Lattic structure sone-on-one meetings and enables 360-performance-reviews, gather real-time feedback and keep track of goals, objectives and key results.
