By: Radha Kishan

A good intuitive and affordable HR software have the capability to reduce paperwork, saves time, completely eliminates the necessity of multiple spreadsheets and paper file cabinets and removes the need to create human resource documentation from scratch. Also helps in reducing or eliminating HR processing burdens and provides with that extra time so that dealing with recruitment and industrial relations fires and critical payroll becomes easier and can be dealt with more effectively.

A flexible and detailed software program have the quality to manage staff records, track payroll data and benefits, navigate personnel information and even tally vacation accruals. All organisations are unique and it is this uniqueness which makes them special. So a Human Resources Software should be such that it provides with a range of modules which clients can cherry pick to suit their own needs and it must be customizable so that it allows you to customize fields and workflows so the system ultimately matches your company's procedures and practices. But in most cases software programs are tailored to meet an organizations unique needs but still the software must be tested for 30 day free trial so that it meet complete requirments of the organization.

Ease of use is also an important factor in a HR software as you don't want to have to spend hours and hours in training if not absolutely essential. Hence a self directed or easily learned program is much more valuable than one that is complicated. The software should have advanced features and a staffing and recruiting software program should allow human resources professionals to prescreen candidates, rank them, report and place them using a single system. System should allow the employees to log in to a secure personal HR area where they can access (for instance) their contract of employment, their holiday and absence information, and company documents such has the staff handbook, induction pack, time sheets, expenses forms etc.

Also the human resources(HR) software you get should come with the committed support of field staff and a customer support desk by the provider of it. You should expect focussed, professional training for all your staff. So choosing the right company becomes very important to meet all requirments without any delays for the perfect working of the system. The company must have the capability to deliver software products that are simple to use, are rich in functionality and have powerful reporting facilities.

Some of the most important qualities of a good hr software includes performance management, absence tracking, succession planning, applicant tracking, carrier connectivity, government compliance, illness and injury, workflow automation, advanced reporting, job and pay, payroll interface, self service and analytics, multiple reporting solutions, event-driven process management and manageer/employee self-service and it must benefit administration. A quality HR Software also helps in time and attendance. It reduces the time needed to prepare your time sheets for payroll, improve your workforce management, minimizes errors, and track and manage labor expenses. It should create, maintain and host your on-line presence with innovative and cost-effective web solutions.
