A World Class HR Operation (for Less)

laurel-wreath-441559_1280Earlier this week, HR Executive Online featured an article by Jill Cueni-Cohen entitled “Going World-Class (for Less)” directly relating to large, global organizations, but I must say that in my experience working with small and mid-size organizations for over 10 years, we see the same characteristics among “world-class” small and mid-size companies.

Comparison between HRnetSource and SaaS

compareWith all the media attention paid to “SaaS” applications (Software-as-a-Service), one might think that the whole world has gone “SaaS”. Not so! There are certainly many applications where SaaS makes sense, but there are others where it may not be the best choice. Why SaaS May Not be a Good Fit for HR tackles some of the issues.

Nevertheless, some HR organizations find that they MUST have a “CLOUD-based system” due to infrastructure and/or IT resource constraints. Not a problem! HRnetSource HRIS is an excellent option because you get the best of both worlds: a more affordable and dedicated HRIS of your very own (not a multi-tenant Saas), and one that is cloud-based, a virtual private server (VPS) in the cloud.

Link Your Payroll to HRIS

linkWhen looking for an HR system, some organizations consider the HR module offered by their payroll service provider out of convenience. However, there is another option that specifically addresses HR’s needs: a fully-functional, true HRIS that can be linked to your existing payroll system. This eliminates duplicate data entries by transferring data electronically from one system to the other. This interface can be automatic and set to update the databases every night or even manually to update at the click of a button.

Here are five advantages of using a fully-functional HRIS, interfaced (separate but linked) to your payroll system:
