3 questions asked when looking at a new HR solution 2018 has now begun, and the majority are back at work thinking about how to improve in the new year of 2018. Organizations will be looking at how they can increase their profit, and how their resources can help with this target. To operate more efficiently, and to manage talent it’s vital to consider an HR Management solution that can meet your requirements. But where do you start? Most organizations don’t want to either change their HR solution, or start using one because they think it will break the bank and won’t fit their business needs. Here are 3 common questions we hear when talking about moving to an HR solution, and what you can do to ensure these questions are answered.. 1.Won’t it cost us too much money? Many organizations resist from investing in an HR Management solution because they think it’s going to break the purse strings. However, there are many options available for all budgets. Open Source has proven a worldwide popular choice, obviously because it is free. However, these are usually better for smaller companies who have 50 or less employees. If your organization is larger, your functionality might be limited. Software providers can offer great solutions for every budget, like OrangeHRM. They understand that budgets vary, as do requirements and it’s really important you seek guidance from an HR consultant on what your choices are, instead of looking at the ‘ general’ pricing plans and rule providers out because of this. It’s also worth noting, some providers offers discounts at specific times of the year, so keep your eyes peeled and do your research. 2.Our business is looking to grow in the next few years, a system won’t be able to expand to meet our requirements… You need to look for a system that is flexible with growth, something that can grow with you, not against you. OrangeHRM provides a solution that doesn’t pigeon hole organizations into what they ‘ think’ customers need, but tailor a solution specifically for their growth. For example: in the early days, you may only need core HR, and not a multitude of additional modules. Once growth has occurred, it’s possible to add on extra modules when and where needed. You need to be aware that some providers won't offer the possibility of picking and choosing certain modules, so you could be left with a very expensive, clunky and complicated system that you only use a quarter of it's functionality. 3.Our industry is very niche, and we need someone who has expertise in our industry When looking for a solution, you need to do your research into what the client base of your shortlisted providers. It’s also important to look at the testimonials, and see real life evidence of how certain solutions can help specific industries. OrangeHRM has a large array of clients, and has specialists dedicated to industries to ensure individual requirements are met. It’s also worth noting that some providers are against customizing modules for certain industries, so you must ask the question if these are possible, instead of just looking on the website.
