What Are the Benefits of a Cloud-Based HR Management System?

HR transformation means taking advantage of the latest technology across all functions of HR and all parts of the organization. Today, HR transformation increasingly means leveraging cloud-based technology to support service delivery and customer experience.

The many benefits, aside from the convenience of an HR system that is accessible online by employees and managers across divisions, subsidiaries and geographies, include:

  • Savings in IT support: With cloud solutions, in-house IT hardware and support costs can be reduced substantially as the burden is taken on by the provider.
  • Lower prices: Subscription fees are generally lower than the proprietary software fees and associated customization and maintenance costs. Total cost of ownership is significantly lower.
  • More value from HR: With most HR activities supported by self-service, HR professionals are able to re-allocate their focus to strategic work, helping to deliver business goals and concentrate on the strategic imperatives.
  • Greater productivity: Most importantly, a cloud-based HRM system can produce real productivity benefits as the adoption of innovative tools leads to workforce optimisation, competitive advantage, and greater customer satisfaction.
