Instead of burdening BambooHR customers with the usual time-consuming and overly-complex payroll process, TRAXPayroll makes running payroll quick and stress-free. With an easy three-step process, federal and state tax filing, exceptional customer support, and a deep integration with BambooHR, you can be confident that TRAXPayroll will help save you time and simplify payroll so you can focus on more strategic goals.

Full-Service Tax Filing

In 2017 alone, the IRS assessed 5.36 million tax penalties related to employment taxes, amounting to almost $7 billion in fines. That’s no joke! But with TRAXPayroll taking care of all federal, state, and local taxes each year on your behalf, you’ll get back hours of time and feel confident that your organization is on the up-and-up with all tax requirements. Phew!

Employee Self Service

Employees today want an active role in tracking their compensation, and TRAXPayroll is designed to make it easy to do just that. Because of the seamless integration between TRAXPayroll and BambooHR, your people can access their pay stubs on the go and manage pay information like direct deposit and federal withholdings anytime, right from their phone or desktop. That’s a great employee experience, and it comes built-in with TRAXPayroll.

Comprehensive Reporting

Trying to make strategic payroll decisions without the right data is like crossing the street blindfolded. But tracking down every bit of information and compiling it into a comprehensive report by hand is just as crazy. That’s why TRAXPayroll gives you instant access to over 100 standard payroll reports. Whether you’re looking to evaluate cash requirements, assess total deductions, or analyze a complete payroll summary per employee, TRAXPayroll generates reports quickly and provides both PDF and Excel versions so you can keep everyone on the same page.

Top-Notch Customer Support

When you have a question or a problem with your payroll system, you can’t afford to wait a week for a response. With TRAXPayroll, you’ll have direct access to a team of real human beings with the right knowledge and experience to help you quickly, giving you the same level of care that you know and love as a BambooHR customer.


How it works.

BambooHR integrates seamlessly through our API with TRAXPayroll. This allows you to keep your employee data as the master record within BambooHR and process payroll through TRAXPayroll.

There are two parts to the integration:

1) Core Integration – includes employee record, direct deposit, and federal withholding information sync from BambooHR to TRAXPayroll and the pay stub data sync from TRAXPayroll into BambooHR.

2) Approved Hours (worked and time-off) Integration – includes approved hours worked from BambooHR’s Time Tracking module, hours worked from the Import Hours tool, and hours worked from integrated 3rd party Time Tracking systems, as well as approved time-off hours from BambooHR into TRAXPayroll.
