There are many who feel that just deciding whether or not some software, such as HR-One’s HRMS solution, is needed or not is the toughest decision to come to.

Likewise, being unprepared after a new software is implemented can result in its quick demise in an organization. Then why some companies spend less time during the pre-installation stage is beyond anyone’s imagination.

Now that you have decided to incorporate HRMS into your company, the next step would be shortlist the vendors and contact them. Asking them the right questions can save you a lot of time, trouble and effort.

– Can it perform this particular task?
Here ‘this particular task’ can refer to any specific functionality that you and your company may need. HRMS can perform any number of functions pertaining to the human resources department, but not every company is looking for the same functionalities. Identify the tasks and functions that you are looking to cater through HRMS and ask your vendor if they provide that functionality through the HRMS that they provide.
– What amount of data can it handle?
Understandably you would want to hear ‘big data’ as the answer to this question. However, you need to look beyond that. It would be beneficial for you to opt for HRMS solution that can take data from multiple sources through different routes. The data usually is structured as well as unstructured. While you may have structured data already in place; it is the unstructured data such as analytical reports, interview data, social media data etc that can make a huge difference. Ask your vendor if their HRMS solution can assist you with different kinds of data and how much of it can handle.
– What skills does my team require to maximize the potential of the software?
If you do not have an in-house team to understand the analytical aspect of the solution, then it may limit the benefits for you. The best payroll management software companies in India advise you to understand that skills required for using any software before installing it. Get in touch with your vendor to understand the same.
– What kind of analytical expertise do you as a vendor have to offer us?
The vendors’ role does not end by just installing the software. They need to offer analytical expertise post the installation too. Check with your vendor what kind of assistance do they offer post the installation and confirm if they have the expertise to offer better decision making methods so that you can have measurable results.
