Crucial questions to ask before you invest in HR software
A wealth of software has flooded the HR and recruitment industries in recent years, providing efficient, cost effective alternatives to otherwise old and archaic business processes. However, with so many options available, it can be difficult for HR leaders and recruiters to not only separate the good from the bad, but also identify the right platforms to be investing in right now.
In this guide, we explore seven key questions to ask before investing in your next HR software solution.
Those questions include:
- Is it business critical? - When budgets are tight or the market suffers, what business critical tools do HR professionals and recruiters really need? The landscape is full of “nice to haves” but do they offer real value when time and money are a challenge?
- Is it enterprise ready? - Even the most innovative technology solutions are useless unless they pass the stringent legal, technical and commercial requests placed on them by big business.Today, this predominantly centres on data – its storage, protection, and security. Despite the lure of big business most tech startups are simply underprepared or qualified when it comes to guaranteeing regulatory and governance benchmarks.
- Can it offer significant ROI? - With tight budgets, HR leaders and recruiters need technology that guarantees are turn on investment in order to receive sign off from the CEO and CFO. Technology that requires significant investment upfront and offers a too distant or uncertain return should be overlooked in favour of those that have a track record for demonstrating value to the HR team and the broader business they represent.
