Additionally, they were sensitive to how expensive some of the systems could be and wanted to get the greatest value.

As they began looking, they quickly determined that there were too many options in the market. They came to HR Payroll Systems ( to define their overall needs and receive recommendations on the systems that would best fit their specific needs.

HR Payroll Systems’ Solution

After spending a few minutes identifying their specific needs, the client completed the free HRIS Vendor Match Tool. Within the same day, HR Payroll Systems called to confirm the client’s information and obtain further detail on their specific needs. Within the same week, five HRIS providers were selected as quality matches and the client moved into screening.

The client identified that four out of five HRIS vendors selected by HR Payroll Systems were fits with their needs and began moving forward. The process included initial screening calls, demos and then RFPs. The entire process reduced the overall client burden of research and allowed the process to be highly focused on evaluating HRIS vendors—not searching for them. Throughout the process, the client determined that in addition to specific technical functionality, they really wanted a high level of customer service and identified the right system for their firm and moved forward with purchase and implementation.
