2 Lack of central records Legislative compliance Difficult to access information Inaccurate reporting Inconsistent tracking of KPIs Unable to guarantee best practice Lost paperwork Incomplete activities Poor use of budgets Employees are not engaged Uncontrolled costs Save time

3 Instant, accurate knowledge Avoid litigation Understand problems before they affect the business Control and direct spending Reduce costs Identify and take action on KPIs Ensure best practice Streamlined and standardised processes Reduce paperwork, ensure accuracy Ensure all activities happen in a timely fashion Spend wisely Involve employees, generate loyalty and well being

4 Pro active, not just a database User friendly Flexible, ability to configure it ourselves Process led Easy to analyse data and also take action with the data Offers full functionality across all users Depth of functionality Single supplier Financially strong supplier Track record of successful projects Proven system with reference sites Technology fit Scalable

5 To select a HRMS we have: Had initial demonstrations from > suppliers Had further demonstrations of key areas Provided a list of key requirements to the suppliers Compared their responses and scored them Taken up 2 reference sites with each supplier It have confirmed their preference for technology fit Checked the supplier’s financial status Challenged the supplier with key questions* * See next slide

6 Although we have provided a list of requirements we have also challenged each supplier to show, in demonstrations, the following: Do you provide pro active features such as dashboards? Can we set up our company hierarchy? Are organisational charts built in? Can we add as many fields and screens as we want? Can we import spreadsheets? Can we set up our own business rules such as entitlements and maternity policies? Can the system manage shift patterns in hours and minutes? When a user logs in can they have different levels of access through a single login (i.e. Self serve, manager, HR user and Recruiter) Is everything from a single supplier, no partner systems? When we write a report can we actually use the information to take action? Is the system process led? Can I build workflows myself? If so, show me by building one and running it. Include decisions, forms, screens and mail merge emails We want a system that guides users through activities. Show me how your system caters for it. I want the system to monitor KPIs and warn me when certain criteria have been met. How does your system do that? Show me a full process from a Manager wanting to recruit, through to application and employment of a new member of staff. Can we build on screen forms ourselves? Is it one system for everyone or do we have to install lots of systems? Is it on the best technology and if so, is it proven or was it released recently? Do you have lots of organisations using your systems already?
