Streamline your workflow with Maxwell’s enhanced 360° API Integration with BambooHR

If your company uses both Maxwell Health and BambooHR, you’ve already gained efficiency in how you administer your benefits and manage your employee information. With our enhanced BambooHR 360° API integration, your team will unlock a whole new level of productivity. Having this integration means you’ll no longer need to worry about keeping your employee demographic information in sync between the two systems.

Why you’ll love the integration

Gone are the days of worrying about which system to update or manually updating the same information in two systems. The integration runs continuously in the background, syncing demographic changes automatically between Maxwell and BambooHR as they happen in real time.

Getting set up with the BambooHR 360° API Integration

Setting up the integration is self-service and straightforward. A few steps and you'll be off and running! Here’s a quick overview of the steps you’ll take:

  1. Confirm all data in Maxwell & BambooHR is accurate
  2. Establish the connection between Maxwell and BambooHR
  3. Configure your data sync settings
  4. Preview your data sync settings
  5. Activate and Sync


Once the integration is running, you’ll have a comprehensive view into all the activity through Maxwell’s notification system. Whether it’s new hires getting added, demographic updates, terminations, etc., whatever the change, you can stay up-to-date and manage any next steps you need.



What else should you know?

  • Many demographic information fields send bi-directionally between Maxwell & BambooHR, however some demographic fields will continue to send one-way: from BambooHR to Maxwell.
  • While employers who are currently using our BambooHR 180° API Integration can continue, we recommend updating to our enhanced 360° API integration. 
  • Integration setup and configuration is available to Master Administrators and Advisors only.
  • Clients no longer need to reach out to BambooHR to get the integration setup started as we have also recently released an update to how we auto-create webhooks. This update should make the integration smoother for existing users as well.
  • Check that the BambooHR API Key you use to set up the integration has the necessary permissions and is not tied to an individual BambooHR user.
    • Note: API keys set to an individual BambooHR user may reduce access to certain integration features or create a disruption to your integration if the individual leaves your company.
