Companies today are tightening their belts, looking for ways to cut costs, and challenging their human resource (HR) departments to make more strategic contributions to the organization.
While HR is traditionally viewed as a cost center saddled with time-consuming and paper-intensive administrative tasks, it’s a necessary burden. The question is this … how can you streamline your HR processes to minimize that burden while transforming HR into a model of efficiency with meaningful impact on the bottom line? For some, the answer is automated HR software.
Most small and midsized businesses have limited staff to manage the many aspects of human resources. In fact, HR staff typically spends far more time performing routine administrative tasks than strategic objectives. But the simple fact is once those routine administrative tasks are automated, it has a profoundly positive impact on both the HR department and company overall. And that’s where software like Sage HRMS can play an important role.
HRMS stands for Human Resource Management System. In the same way that ERP software automates your accounting and operations, Sage HRMS automates all aspects of managing your workforce including Employee Benefits, Time and Attendance, Recruitment, Compensation Management, Compliance, and more. You get hundreds of standard reports, customizable templates, automated workflow, and a full range of features that will reduce the cost of compliance, eliminate redundant data entry and paperwork, automate repetitive processes, and have your HR Department running like a well-oiled machine.
By its very nature, the HR process is paper-intensive. Many companies rely on a combination of hard copy applications and forms, spreadsheets, and file cabinets to manage all that candidate and employee information. All that hiring data, payroll records, and benefit plan elections, and much more are probably stored in multiple places. To make matters worse, each change to those documents needs to be replicated across a variety of files and locations … it’s a record-keeping nightmare.
But with software like Sage HRMS, all of your employee data is digitized and consolidated into a single database. One single source of data and a lot less paper floating around results in fewer errors and potential fines, elimination of duplicate data entry, a streamlined efficient HR process, and more timely reports and analysis.
