HR technology has long been considered the domain of large corporations, both in terms of workforce size and budget. Yet a rise in the number of HR tech vendors catering to small and medium organisations means that SMEs no longer have to miss out on the many benefits that technology can bring.
This increased vendor choice does present an additional challenge however - how best to select the right HR system for your business needs? With a saturation of seemingly like for like vendors battling for attention within the growing SME market, it's no wonder that smaller businesses don't know where to start when it comes to the HRIS selection process.
Step in Silver Cloud HR – an Essex based digital HR consultancy which has just launched a new Online HRIS Selection package specifically for SMEs.
Designed to address the challenges faced by SMES when selecting a new HR system, the new self-service online tool has been developed for UK and global organisations of up to 500 employees and provides all the resources and tools required to successfully navigate the HRIS selection process.
Suitable for use by HR directors, finance directors, HRIS managers, HR project managers or anyone tasked with sourcing HR software, the service takes users step by step through the process of selecting a new HR system: from defining requirements, setting objectives and shortlisting vendors, all the way through to vendor demonstrations and evaluation.
The templates and resources included within this package will enable HR teams to easily formalise the process of choosing a vendor that best suits the needs of their business, their employees and their budget, replicating Silver Cloud HR’s proven approach to selection.
“Our clients have traditionally been mid to large size organisations who look to us to carry out the selection process on their behalf: managing RFPs, shortlisting, overseeing demos, negotiating contracts and so on. This level of service is often out of reach for smaller organisations however, so we wanted to create something that would help bridge the gap.”, says Helen Armstrong, CEO and founder of Silver Cloud HR.
She continued: “There is so much to gain by using the right HR technology, we don’t believe that smaller organisations should miss out, simply because they do not have the relevant experience to manage their own selection process, or because they do not have the budget to appoint an external consultancy such as ours to do it for them. An online self-service option, powered by our collective experience appeared to be the perfect solution”.
The Online HRIS Selection Package can be purchased for a fixed price of £2000 + VAT. This will provide users with six months access to their downloadable Selection tools and resources as well as grant them access to Silver Cloud’s team who are available for telephone support.
