5 warning signs your HR Software may be nearing end of life

HR Management in a growing business is a continuous and a relatively demanding task.  As your business grows, processes and systems will need to evolve in order for your organization to scale effectively.  HR professionals will always be overloaded with work at ever growing organizations, with routine and non routine tasks.  Thus it is very common for HR professionals to become frustrated with their HR software, if it can’t adapt and provide a helping hand to the HR Department.

So, if the HR Team is spending a longer time on manual HR administration, with no time for strategic HR thinking, then it’s time to start looking at something better.

Below are 5 warning signs you need to start looking for, which will help you asses that your current HR Software has outgrown your current needs

The data you need is hard to find
If you’re still filing everything on paper files, it’s not only inefficient, but you’re probably putting the business at risk.  As paper filing increases, bulky filling cabinets will be in place and will be difficult to keep the things organized.  Also, if you undergo a regulatory or compliance audit, think of the time it takes to hunt down those important documents.  It can be seriously stressful and even more seriously time consuming.

Limited Functionality
The Old traditional HR Software require significant manual data entry and offer limited functionality and flexibility. This will result in manual administration, preventing you from working on the strategic initiatives that will really benefit your business and drive value addition to the organization.

Lack of timely and costly support from the HR Vendor and unable to tailor the solution as per your business needs
HR software vendors simply sell you their software and leave you to it, without offering ongoing support or training.  This can leave you with nowhere to turn when you want to get more from your software or have processes you want to implement but aren’t sure how the software can support them.

Unable to control access to certain data
A traditional HR Software help you to create limited user accounts and once they are created there is no control on data restrictions.  That means HR data is at risk of being accessed in an unauthorized way and or compromised with some users and keeps data security at risk.

Limited reporting and analytics
The HR Software you have always has limited reports built in the system and adding additional report may not be an option. HR depends on analytics, as data speaks volumes when represented in the right format, whether it be graphs or pivot style reports, grouped together, to make more sense to the people who need the data most, the management.  So, with minimal flexibility it takes HR departments time to build those reports manually.
