Version management becomes a time-consuming burden. Is this the way your HR department functions?

Implementation of the HR software is planned and scheduled together with different parties involved. Then all HR-related information is available in one software to all users all the time.

For example, potential resignations can be identified and required actions taken. Intelligent analytics and planning enable drilling into company headcount, personnel groups, successor planning, performance and rewarding statistics, trainings and other relevant information.
