By | HR Software, Human Resources | No Comments

In the era of big data, most HR departments could be considered something of a gold mine. From timesheets and recruitment info to contracts and performance data, there’s an endless stream of valuable employee information buried deep in your business – and bringing it all together is the key to unlocking HR’s strategic potential.

The theoretical benefits of HR software, such as greater automation, centralised reporting and significantly reduced administration, are widely known.

Typically, when you’re evaluating HR software you have to choose between a ‘best-of-breed’ strategy with point solutions for different HR capabilities – recruitment, payroll, learning and development etc – or an integrated system that caters for everything through one comprehensive package.
