HR Software

For Human Capital Management (HCM) teams, your people are your most valuable asset. However, ageing technology often makes it challenging for HR teams to manage a large and diverse workforce. We’ve designed Cloud HR so you can better support your employees’ needs - both now and in the future.

Through a combination of core HR functionality, instant online access and an all-inclusive reporting suite, Cloud HR delivers unrivalled maintenance of your organisation’s full employee lifecycle - improving employee experience while lightening the load of HR teams. Cloud HR is based on 30 years’ worth of experience in the HR market with our best-in-class solution, OpenHR, and the solution of choice for HR teams looking to graduate to the Cloud.




Understanding key issues


Rigid technology that doesn't support future growth

Systems are outdated and don't offer the flexibility and scalability to enhance the employee experience and lighten the burden of HR teams.

Can't easily access and report on employee data

Your current system doesn't offer insight into employee sentiment, flight risks or internal mobility.

HR staff are overwhelmed with admin tasks

You have limited or no self-service capabilities within your existing solution, and HR teams spend the majority of time taking enquiries from employees.

You have a large and diverse workforce

Employee expectations are changing and vary across different departments. Your current solutions aren't robust enough to handle this.

Your system isn't designed for your business

Tasks and processes require a lot of extra manual work, creating inefficiency and wasting time.

Employees require mobile and remote access to systems

With employees spending more time working from home and out of the office, you don't have the technology to support the changes in working patterns.

“With one online database in Cloud HR we can access all our people information instantly. We are also confident that the information is accurate and up-to-date, which is not always the case if you are using multiple spreadsheets and manually importing and copying data."

Enite Andrews, HR Manager

“One of the key results so far has been the reduction of input time for the team. The HR team has been able to move away from spending the majority of the day on data entry and working through transactions to looking at more value added data and understanding what the data in the system is actually telling us."
