Checklist for HR and Payroll Software Selection

The HR and payroll software selection process is an important one, as the right HR software can have a huge impact on an organization’s ability to retain top talent.

A recent survey by PwC found that 36% of HR leaders are likely to switch vendors when their current HR and payroll software subscription ends. Below is the checklist which needs to be considered when selecting HR and Payroll Software for your company:

  • Is the HR and Payroll software easy to use and user-friendly?
  • Does the Software offer all the features you need?
  • How good is the Customer support offered by the vendor?
  • Is the pricing transparent? Is there any chance of hidden charges?
  • How good is the integration capability of the solution with 3rd Party Software like accounting software for GL integration?
  • Will your data confidentiality be maintained? Does the vendor have security certifications like ISO certification?
  • Take a feedback check/review from 2 or 3 customers using the same software.
  • Is it flexible? Can you upgrade or downgrade your Software versions to meet business demands?
  • How long is the vendor in the market and has a good customer base and history?
  • Can you create custom reports without coding?
  • Is the software compliant with Local labor law and GDPR?
