We understand and solve your key issues with cloud-based HR software
We create HR software designed to solve our customers key challenges.
- Rigid and outdated technology
Outdated workforce management software doesn't offer the flexibility and scalability to enhance the employee experience and lighten the burden of HR teams. More and more businesses are now looking at their HR software as tools to help them reach their true potential. What could you achieve if your technology wasn't a barrier? Say Yes to having the technology you actually need.
- No access to mobile and remote systems
With employees spending more time working from home and out of the office, you don't have the workforce management software to support the changes in working patterns and structure. What if your teams could define a working pattern that suits them and had access to the tools they needed to take charge of their own schedules? Say yes to empowering your employees.
- HR staff are overwhelmed with admin
You have limited or no self-service capabilities within your existing HR software, and HR teams spend the majority of time fielding repetitive questions from employees. What if your workforce management software allowed your people access to the information they need, whilst also freeing your HR teams to achieve the full scope of their role, instead of just serving as task robots? Say yes doing away with numbing admin.
- You have a large and diverse workforce
Employee expectations are changing and priorities continue to vary across different departments. Your current HR software isn't robust enough to handle the complex demands of a large and diverse workforce. What if you didn't have to worry about traditional barriers such as gender pay gaps or disparities in diverse hiring holding you back? Say Yes to being able to meet diverse employee expectations.
- Can't easily access and report on employee data
Your current workforce management software doesn't offer insight into employee sentiment, flight risks or internal mobility. What if your HR team had access to a simple dashboard with everything they needed in order to drive forward conversations around employee engagement and wellbeing? Say Yes to having the information you need, when you need it.

- How will Advanced HR software benefit my business?
Our HR software, Advanced HR, takes care of the entire employee lifecycle from recruitment to retirement. Through a combination of core HR functionality, instant online access and an all-inclusive reporting suite, Advanced HR delivers unrivalled maintenance of your organisation’s full employee lifecycle. Advanced HR is designed to be flexible to the needs of your people, empowering employees to self-serve and access the system anytime, anywhere. Advanced HR reduces the administrative burden on HR teams, so you can focus on investing valuable time into activity that is going to enhance the employee experience and increase retention.
- Who will benefit most from HR software?
Advanced HR software is beneficial to everyone in the business. It means HR teams can invest more time in activity which is going to improve employee satisfaction and make your business a better place to work. Employees will also benefit from being able to self-serve information, such as easily booking annual leave or looking up policies, allowing them to get on with their main activities.
- What key features should I look for in HR management software?
Solid HR software must be able to look after the entire employee lifecycle. This includes features that support all elements of employee management such as absence management, appraisals, starters and leavers, self-service and workflow, salary and benefits. Ideally, HR software should also have integrated training management, applicant management, reporting and payroll to enable HR teams to have all elements of people management in one place.
- How can I improve the productivity of my HR team?
Managing sickness and absence, appraisals, training, recruitment and starters and leavers can become really complex when information is either paper-based, kept in spreadsheets or on disparate systems. Providing one central system for both HR teams and employees to record information is critical to removing admin headaches and increasing productivity.
- How do I calculate ROI from HR software?
You can calculate your return on investment (ROI) in an HR system in many ways. The first is from the increased time savings and efficiencies in your HR team. How many minutes and hours are being saved by automating tasks and having less admin to do? Over time, this makes a huge difference to the capacity of an HR function. You can also measure ROI in employees retained as a result of having an HR team more focused on their people. The cost of recruitment and churn of employees is extremely high - being able to retain engaged employees is a huge cost saver for businesses.
- How much does HR software cost?
At Advanced, we work on a per employee per month (PEPM) Software as a Service (SaaS) price model. This makes the cost of Advanced HR easier to manage and means you can scale up as your business and workforce grows.
- What is the advantage of using Cloud-based HR software?
The events of the past few months have shown that Cloud-based software is now not a desire but an absolute ‘must have’ for HR teams. HR teams need to be able to report on employee trends and understand workforce data, and employees want to be able to self-serve with ease, wherever they may be. Using Cloud software simplifies processes and makes it quick and simple for all teams to access tools.
- How secure is my data in Cloud-based HR software?
Using Cloud-based software is actually much more secure than on premise solutions. Advanced HR is backed up in our Tier 3 data centres, meaning your data and system has one of the highest levels of security possible.
- Can Advanced HR software be implemented remotely?
Yes. The beauty of Advanced HR software being a Cloud solution means we can implement it for your whole business remotely without setting foot in your office, removing health and safety headaches and allowing you to get up and running as quickly as possible.
- Does Advanced HR work on a tablet or mobile?
Yes. Advanced HR is a true Cloud solution and is available anywhere, anytime on any device. All you need is a connection to the internet and a browser.
- How does Advanced HR software optimise workflow processes?
Advanced HR streamlines processes for HR teams, making it easier for them to report on employee information across the board. Having one solution covering the whole employee management landscape means that information is collected in one place in a standardised way, so your teams have a clear view of trends.
- Is Advanced HR part of MyWorkplace?
Advanced HR is live on MyWorkplace and enables HR teams to create more space to focus on people, not the day-to-day distractions. One single sign-on gives both HR professionals and employees a central place for all HR-related activity.
- Is Advanced HR software customisable?
We understand that all organisations are different and structured in a variety of ways, so Advanced's HR software is flexible to your individual business needs. Unlike many other Cloud solutions, with Advanced HR you have the ability to customise the solution without any training, assistance or consultancy costs from Advanced. The system is easy to use and very flexible, and changes can be made by you quickly and easily.
