The HR management system wish list for 2022

HRMS, HRIS, HCM, HR … there are many different acronyms for the software used in human resource management and the related processes undertaken throughout the employee lifecycle. Regardless of which one is used, there is one fact that will apply to them all at some point.  The HR software will come to the end of its useful life or, out of the blue, the provider gives notice to withdraw support.

At this point, the HR team is faced with the challenge of what to do next. Should they continue with what is possibly an inefficient, outdated or unsupported application or return to the market and look for a replacement system? And, with a very crowded HR software application market, that task can be very daunting.

But, here comes the fun part – the system “wish list”. The requirements specification that contains everything you would like the new system to do and much more, including those items that you know your budget may not stretch to.

Replacing a legacy system, without planning ahead and documenting requirements, is likely to result in an implementation that doesn’t deliver the desired results or the improvements you are keen to enjoy. No matter how many elements of the HR software suite you are looking for; e.g. Recruitment, Onboarding, Talent Management etc there are a number of considerations that should be taken into account.

As an experienced HR solution provider, Frontier Software shares a few thoughts to get you started on your HR system replacement wish list.

  • All modules seamlessly integrated with fewer clicks to get you where you need to be
  • A single, date based view of employee information helping to ensure information is accurate, easy to manage and available in real time
  • Improve reporting accuracy and availability, to support planning, budgeting and compliance
  • Reports that deliver information in many different formats such as PDF, MS Office
  • Allow the adoption of new, modern ways of working rather than adapting existing processes (especially those not fit for purpose)
  • Highly configurable by the end user without the need (or cost) of consultancy from the software provider
  • Include easy to use, self-service tools that support day-to-day needs, empower employees to deliver results and enable leaders to manage their people and teams
  • Easily available on all the latest technologies, in particular Smartphones, with no compromises on security
  • Alerts, triggers and notifications with direct links to the required action and associated approval workflows
  • Make it quicker, easier and safer to share information with other business applications to maintain accuracy and save money
  • Plain English user help, alongside manuals, training and support
  • A partnership with a provider that will understand your vision, support on-going development and deliver on expectations

A requirements specification can run to many pages, but make sure you have your key needs, the “must haves” documented first. There is no perfect solution and HR software that ticks many of the ‘desirable’ wish list requirements but doesn’t address your current pain points will soon lose its sparkle, no matter how shiny and new the user interface.
