Why companies are rethinking their HR technology

Recent challenges have forced businesses to become more agile and flexible. With this in mind, EPI-USE looks at the reasons why companies are switching their people systems

All businesses should be able to have the same functionality as big multinational companies, with the ability to grow their HR solution as the world changes. 

Recent challenges, including Covid-19, have led a lot of organisations to rethink their HR systems. So, how can the HR technology businesses use be more agile and flexible for everything life throws at us?

Here are the top three reasons why companies are switching their HR technology: 

1. A need for cloud-based software that can adapt and grow as the business grows and avoids the need to change HR systems in the future. Short-term solutions are costly and can be quickly outgrown;

2. Remote working has highlighted the need for technology to be accessible on any device, including mobile apps, from anywhere with data held in one place;

3. Having HR technology that provides easy-to-consume updates to ensure legal compliance, best practices and innovation.

When looking for HR technology, most companies look to solve one particular problem rather than planning holistically with a future-proofed business case.   

It helps to understand the two drivers to the cost of HR software: software fees and set-up fees.

At EPI-USE, we have taken all our experience of deploying SAP SuccessFactors and packaged this into a system, which gives you all of the functionality you need with no up-front setup costs. With just a simple monthly cost per employee for software, it’s easy to switch solutions to a cloud-based HR system you won’t outgrow.

To see how easily you can switch to a Tier 1 cloud HR solution for a monthly fee with no upfront costs, visit EPI-USE's website which includes a click through demo.
