What is HR Software?

 

There are many HR Software products available online.  The HR process is reflected in self-service software platforms or programmes that try to help business owners to formalise and structure their HR records and processes.

There is no one definition of HR Software but typically, it will record and maintain employee information, automate and/or support HR related tasks and assist with the compliance records that are required in different jurisdictions.

More advanced versions will provide comprehensive information in the form of dashboards and reports that will inform and assist decision-making.

For example, HR Software can enable business owners to see at a glance how many employees are deployed at a given time, what an individual employees history with the firm has been or how a specific shift is performing against budget from a staffing perspective.

When used effectively in an SME, HR Software can help manage performance, identify and reward top performers and assist in the management of non or low-performers.

HR Duo’s HR Software platform is essentially different to others in one critical respect: it was developed, and is supported by, established HR practitioners and advisers, who continue to advise some of Europe’s leading Companies.

What are the benefits of Leave Management Software?

Leave Management HR Software enables the management of any staff time off along with requests for leave.  The software also records and tracks the time employees are away from work.  

Whether the Leave in question is Holiday, Sickness, Maternity, or Study and Family, every Business Owner needs to know that Leave is recorded, easy to manage, and that the Business is compliant with Government and EU Regulations.

How can Employee Scheduling (or Rostering) Software help?

SMEs want to secure every possible client contract, but need to do so in the knowledge that the necessary resources are available, and the job can be delivered at an acceptable profit. To do this, Companies need automated Employee Scheduling Software in order to have complete visibility as to Employee Availability, commitments in relation to Leave, as well as requests for Leave that have not yet been confirmed.  The Software automates a process that previously meant trying to plot Employee availability on a spreadsheet, with endless versions having to be produced before the ‘right’ answer was received.

Employee Scheduling Software allows Business Owners to complete Operational Plans to be completed and approved a lot more quickly, while also allowing Staff queries to be handled immediately.
