Whether you’re a business owner or run an SME you’ve probably fantasised about having an HR Management System. You know that an HR Management System would be a smart idea in theory, but something’s stopping you from taking the plunge.

You feel comfortable with paper-based HR, even though you know it has limitations. Paper and files can be misplaced, and don’t facilitate a flexible working policy. You may have problems with data issues, as others can get access to your files if they’re not stored correctly. There’s no reporting capability and little or no governance or central processing for sharing information. But you’re used to working in this way, and you’re nervous about the alternatives.

You might have tried entry-level HR systems, but you’ve realised they can’t evolve or flex with your needs, and have little or no integration with your other business systems. They are often limited to one functional area and can be seen as just one more separate, isolated system that someone has to manage. Reports are often limited, and there’s no real database structure for employee data.

If only there was a business case for implementing an HR Management System which offers a tangible ROI.

If you’re frustrated with your paper-based system and you’ve not yet found an HR Management System which suits your business, we’d encourage you to take a closer look at PeoplePoint365.

Read on to find out five reasons why investing in a decent HR Management System will be the best decision you make for your business this year.

1. It’s quick and easy to learn how to use the best HR Management System

Don’t worry if you’re not a tech wizard. Modern HR Management Systems are so easy to use.

Banish all thoughts of clunky, slow, old-fashioned systems with counter-intuitive and befuddling interfaces.

We’ve built PeoplePoint365 to work within SharePoint as part of Office 365; so it has a familiar, clean, simple and user-friendly interface. Offering all the benefits of the Microsoft ribbon and key features such as export to Excel, it is easy to use and administer and, as it’s cloud-based, you can use it on the road, at home or in your office.

Never used SharePoint or Office 365 before? You’ll just need a quick training session and you’ll be a PeoplePoint365 pro in no time.

PeoplePoint365 can also be customised to reflect your corporate identity. We include everything you need inside your Office 365 workspace or can even provide you with a company intranet; making it as easy as possible for you and your employees to find what they need within one window.

2. An HR Management System will help your bottom line

How many hours a week do you spend between multiple interlinked spreadsheets looking for key information that you need, or that someone else has asked you to get, when you could be working on something more productive?

HR Management Systems put an end to all that.

PeoplePoint365 will make you a lean mean HR machine, and this efficiency multiplied by everyone in your office means money saved and more money made.

What’s more, our Software is provided on a Software as a Service (SaaS) model so you can budget for scalability with no annual charges or surprises. Plus it’s a modular system, so you only pay for what you use on a monthly basis.

Worried about after-sales support? We built PeoplePoint365 in-house, so we can also offer expert support without it costing the earth.

3. An HR Management System will save you bags of time

HR Management Systems will save you time; and lots of it.

With PeoplePoint365 you get one system, one interface and all your data in one easy-to-find place. Wave goodbye to hours sweating over Excel and say hello to you being totally in control of everything you need to know at the touch of a button or two.

You also get powerful reporting and real-time dashboards for HR, line managers, IT and payroll. You can also add Applicant Tracking (ATS) extensions and Learning Management as a next step. This means quickly-produced customisable reports, self-service for your employees and much-wanted automation of time-consuming manual processes. It will be easier for you to do your job, and impress the Board too.

4. An HR Management System will boost productivity

Operate a self-service HR Management System and you’ll open your systems up to everyone in your office. That means everyone will be able to process their own holidays; their own expenses and timesheets, all at the click of a button.

With the PeoplePoint365 Core (base product) you get all of this:

  • Employee Records Management (ERM)
  • Employee Manager
  • Employee On-boarding
  • Employee Change Management
  • Employee Document Management
  • Stakeholder Dashboards
  • Stakeholder Tasks Management
  • Organisational Charting
  • Remuneration & Benefits
  • Employee Off-boarding

The system then extends to reflect your specific needs such as Holiday, Expenses and Absence Management, saving you time and paper.

5. The best HR Management Systems are future-proof

Putting all data in to the open with an HR Management System means multiple people have access to important information. If someone in the team is off sick, or leaves, work goes on as usual.

But PeoplePoint365 offers even more benefits that that.

Once you have access to Office 365 you’ll be able to unlock so much more functionality from it which will be beneficial to your business in the future. As well as Word, PowerPoint and Excel you can access PowerBI, PowerApps and Flow. Never heard of them? Ask us what they are and what they do…
