• Every organization and business HR starts with an HR solution first. Then there arrives a time, when the question arises, that why the company needed the first solution at the first place itself and what they are now looking for in the subsequent solutions? All these need a business strategy, helped by an appropriate HR Technology product. Because without an appropriate HR solution, the strategists will soon find themselves in a graveyard full of HR products that are good but don’t meet any of the company’s need. The average HRMS systems in large companies are ageing. So, the next best step forward for the renovation would be to first accept that the software that is being used in the company is old and ageing. Making great decisions at the right time for the right reasons cannot be based solely on gut feeling. Thus, using software that can carry out a stable business process and can accommodate different updates of the company is the best start to revamp the overall HR system. Using a system that can relay information in a systematic way will enable a company HR to avail time-saving benefits including hassle-free reporting, identify trends and the ability to draw from real-time data to improve communication. This can only be achieved if the systems are designed to gather high level data. A successful business model relies heavily on high performance across all departments at all times. Another basic factor to note is that big companies have several HR applications where redundancy, constant costly updating and integrating all the departments are few of the key pain points. This lacking point of HR system has given an advantage to the HR technology solution providers. The providers are combining the SaaS, Cloud technology, Big Data Analysis and other IT trends in a single platform to provide a single vendor solution featuring all the needs of the company for a long run. Therefore, the list of “Top 20 Most Promising HR Technology Solution Providers 2017” chosen by the expert panel of CEOs, CIOs, industry analysts and the CIOReview editorial team can aid HR strategists to choose that one particular HR software for their companies.
