Are your current HR Software Systems working as hard as you do?

Are your current HR Software Systems working as hard as you do? from Mitrefinch Australia

A recent survey conducted by magazine in the UK revealed that many HR professionals are frustrated with their current HR software systems and say they do not help them meet strategic goals.

Only 39 per cent of the survey’s respondents agreed that their HR software systems had all the functionality they require. While 54 per cent were satisfied with the way their systems help them with payroll and administration, this dropped to just 18 per cent for more strategic functions such as talent management.

Most HR professionals were not willing to admit that their own lack of strategic thinking might play a part in their frustrations, with only 18 per cent revealing that their department lacked a clearly defined strategy for supporting the needs of the business. More stressed that a lack of knowledge of the software available might be letting them down, while 46 per cent felt they had a good understanding of the range of HR software tools available on the market.

James Brockett from believes that most HR professionals want to think and act strategically to support their business, and the survey shows that while software can help them achieve that, it can also be a source of frustration if the wrong tools are selected.

He also believes that, “While administration functions are currently being reasonably well-served by software, the findings highlight the need for HR decision-makers to consider their other needs and to make sure they do thorough research when making decisions about new HR software.”

So when should you start looking for new software?

When evaluating your current Employee Management System you need to ask yourself several important questions:

-
Is it difficult to get meaningful information from your system?
- Does the system lack integration with your other business systems?
- Do you have to enter the same data more than once across multiple systems?
- Does your system limit the number of users, entries etc?
- Are you still relying on spreadsheets to prepare payroll and create management reports?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions maybe it's time you started looking for an Employee Management system that will meet and exceed your expectations.
