Frequently asked questions

Have a particular question about HCM solutions? We've answered some of the most commonly asked questions.

Traditionally organizations would use on-premises Human Capital Management (HCM) systems to manage their workforce. However, with technology innovation and the need to grow to remain competitive, organizations are rapidly moving to a cloud-based HCM solution. The cloud offers advantages for HCM including innovative technology, consolidation of disparate systems, enhanced user experience, mobile accessibility, regular enhanced system updates as well as better organizational control through access to real time, reliable data allowing you to make better decisions for your organization.

With a partner, someone is there to help you architect your HCM cloud deployment to suit your business needs and goals as well as to set you up for success once you go live. Your partner should be experienced and knowledgeable providing best-practice HCM recommendations, have local expertise and be able to support you once you are live in the cloud. You might also want to consider your future roadmap ensuring your partner has experience with the full spectrum of HR, talent, payroll and benefits.

Moving your HCM and financial applications to the cloud with one system for HR, finance and planning provides you with insight to make better decisions, the agility to pivot and scale and the clarity to guide your business. With access to real time data, global visibility and streamlined processes, the insights you will have at your fingertips will help your organization make better business decisions.

Preparing for your move to the cloud is essential in the success of your project. You need to consider deployment readiness, cloud fit-gap analysis, target-operating model design as well as how you will test, stabilize and optimize the platform once live.

Planning and preparing your end users is also an important part of your project and will help increase user adoption once you are live in the cloud. You can do this through stakeholder identification, change impact analysis and communications training.

Adopting HCM cloud technology will continue to be a priority for many midsize organizations, especially those wanting to scale and expand globally. Moving your HCM to a cloud platform will provide you with greater data insights to help you drive operational efficiencies, engage your employees, make better business decisions and help you operate with predictability.

Application management services for HCM are designed to help organizations operate at peak performance once they are live in the cloud. Solutions typically include:

  • Tenant and integration assessments
  • Tenant and release management
  • Integration management
  • Configuration support and consultation
  • New feature and functionality enablement
  • Business initiative support
  • Strategic road mapping consultation and support
  • Reporting, insights and analytics

Whether you’re going through a merger or acquisition, looking to grow your organization, need help with new feature releases, or simply need some extra dedicated support, HCM application management services can provide flexible and agile solutions to help you meet your needs quickly.

Getting your people paid on time while also maintaining strict compliance is critical to the success of your organization, which is why many companies choose payroll administration outsourcing. With payroll and cloud experts taking on your day-to-day administration and transactional activities, you are able to achieve compliance and pay your employees on time while freeing up your team to focus on strategic, business critical activities for your organization.
