What is HR software?

HR software, also known as HR management software, provides a toolkit for your human resources department to help manage employee-related tasks.

From cloud-based HRM programmes to consultancy, our HR solutions give your team everything they need to foster a positive working environment.

Support your HR department and streamline daily tasks, so they can focus on making your company the workplace of choice. Your employees are your organisation’s most valuable asset. 

Maximise your employees’ potential with HR systems

There are many benefits to implementing a good HR management system. Whether you’re a small business or a medium business, the HR department is the beating heart of your company.

Empowering your HR managers with the right software for hiring, onboarding and retaining the best talent is paramount to success. Our HR tools can help you achieve that. We’ll also help future-proof your business with succession planning management.

Streamline HR tasks

Our software streamlines personnel tasks with features that include an employee self-service platform for staff to submit paperless expenses and holiday requests.

You’ll also be able to track hiring and onboarding with ease, and integrate better payroll processes for a simple and efficient way to keep on top of everyday tasks.

Manage employee performance with ease

Develop an effective performance management process with simple ways to track employee behaviour, performance and attendance.

With our HR and onboarding software, you’ll be able to identify and oversee employees’ skills and training needs, easily recognising opportunities for growth.

Plus, customisable reports, databases and dashboards provide actionable insights, helping employees stay engaged with their own career development.

Make informed business decisions

Our cloud based human resource software keeps employee data in one central, secure location that’s accessible online to the people who need it, anytime they want.

Pull reports that provide management with a holistic view of how the business is running. You can plan for future staffing requirements and support the areas of your business that need it most with details on attendance, time management and team performance.
