Client Problem

The client, Global Data Systems, is recognized as a leading provider of telecommunications and technology solutions. They were using a hybrid model of a payroll system with some of its HR functionality as well as a paper based model for all of their HR management. The hiring process was highly manual causing a great deal of confusion—and managing all of the HR functions was not scalable. They wanted an HRIS system to bring all of the HR functions under one umbrella.

The key features they were looking for were Core HR, benefits, payroll, time and attendance, performance management as well as a suite of management tools. Additionally, they were looking for a system that would bring them the greatest amount of value. They immediately discovered that there are hundreds of systems on the market and knew they needed guidance.

They began their research with a simple Google search (“HRIS”). They turned to HR Payroll Systems to define their overall needs and receive recommendations on the systems that would best fit their requirements. However, they wanted to know that the recommendations they received would come from a credible source. Upon reviewing the background of HRPayrollSystems.net and its founder—someone with HR experience himself, they felt comfortable that the recommendations were valuable.

Issues

  • Needing a comprehensive, single system of record for HRIS functions
  • Finding the greatest value
  • Looking for vendors with specific functionality
  • Hundreds of vendors in the marketplace and wanted to narrow down their options
  • Required a highly credible source for system recommendations

HR Payroll Systems’ Solution

They identified their specific needs in just a few minutes by completing HRPayrollSystems.net’s free online HRIS Vendor Match Tool. Within the hour, HR Payroll Systems called to confirm their information and obtain further detail on their specific needs. Within a few days, five HRIS providers were selected as quality matches to the client’s needs and the client moved into screening.

Global Data Systems short-listed three HRIS vendors selected by HR Payroll Systems as the best fits for their needs and began moving forward. The process included initial screening calls, demos and then RFPs. The client dramatically reduced the overall burden of research which allowed the process to be highly focused on evaluating HRIS vendors as opposed to searching for them.

As they discovered more about each of the HRIS systems, they determined that they also wanted to integrate the applicant tracking system (ATS) they were already using. The client wanted a high level of customer service and a system that would growth with them. They found the right system for their organization and moved forward with purchase and implementation. The client noted that the implementation was outstanding.
