What Is the FrontRunners Quadrant?

A Graphic of the Top-Rated Human Resources Information System Products

FrontRunners uses real reviews from real software users to highlight the top software products for North American small businesses.

Our goal is to help small businesses to make more informed decisions about what software is right for them. That’s why we engineered FrontRunners.

To create this report, we evaluated over 520 Human Resource Information System (HRIS) products. Only those with the top scores for Usability and User Recommended made the cut as FrontRunners.

How Are FrontRunners Products Selected?

 

Products Are Scored Based on User Reviews

 

The gist is that products are scored in two areas—Usability and User Recommended—based on actual user ratings.

To be considered at all, products must have at least 20 reviews published within the previous 18 months, and meet minimum user rating scores. They also have to offer a core set of functionality—for example, HRIS products have to be able to act as the system of record for employee data with personnel tracking and reporting capabilities.

From there, user reviews dictate the Usability and User Recommended scores. Usability is plotted on the x-axis and User Recommended on the y-axis.

Affordability and Innovation in HR

The basics of every HR software must be to serve the best interests of organization by managing its people in the most effective way possible. To automate where necessary, to make it efficient and fast, to reduce the amount of time, energy and labor required to perform a certain task.

A modernistic approach towards this, makes us believe that the workplace scenario is changing. We no longer conceive the workplace in the same fashion as we use to. Any business or organization, no matter what the size, has a typically fast paced environment but the flexibility of work schedules, remote working, free lancing and a global workforce sets it apart in the modern age. The challenges are far greater and there is an evident gap for a software that truly matches the futuristic approach.

Large enterprises tend to burn more cash as compared to small companies, which have been wise enough to shop and hunt for cloud based solutions. The transition is slowly bringing a new wave to corporate world, which has just started to appreciate the potentials of a cloud based software. This wave enables a sense of urgency to migrate to better HR management software and upgrade the way, all of this has been perceived in the past. The enterprise world realizes that it lacks the exponential growth if it lags behind in adopting the newer methods of handling their workforce, which in turn may be lethal for their existence. The corporate structure can benefit with such reforms and cut costs as a whole, bring an ease of operation within the organization that is associated with the cloud technology.

To go completely paperless, that is the mainstay belief  for cloud HR companies like WebHR. Valued a bit over $15 billion globally, human resource technology is the fastest growing tech business and is not going to slow down any time soon. This is the reason that markets around the world have seen a surge of budding new companies, solely based to upgrade the human connectivity at workplaces. An element of socially wired, well coherent teams, that build the basics of any organization. WebHR supports and pioneers all such concepts and has been the biggest advocate of such changes even before they were heard of.

Every business needs to manage employees, lure them and evaluate them in an efficient manner, so the core HR fun functionalities like hiring, on-boarding, payroll and benefit administration should be made as convenient as possible, to ensure  a smooth day to day performance. Systems like ” WebHR ” are a powerful tool for any organization, no matter what the size.It has brought forth, the cutting edge technologies, pioneering innovation when the HR space was stagnant, at a rocket pace. WebHR brings an all-inclusive, social HR  that does all the core functions of an HR software and  much, much more in the most affordable way possible, providing room to grow for budding and established companies all the same.

The analytics-driven and agile persona of WebHR has lured the corporate world to re-think their affinity to acquire a hosted solution and move towards the cloud, making processes faster and better for their transformation. The user-friendly, social look of the tool, makes it popular, not only amongst the employees, engaging and connecting them, but also for the top management. WebHR helps them step into the future of automation, helping in making decisions based on the analytical data gathered by the software, which otherwise would cost them millions of dollars. WebHR makes it super affordable for companies to get tools like, social elements of engagement, recruitment, performance management, assessments, learning management, workplace wellness, all at one place.

The age old, under performing, under whelming, overtly hyped software, which we thought and longed for, are no more in demand and are being rapidly replaced by faster, more automated cloud software. The new wave of people-oriented software, change how the HR operates and brings a culture of inclusion, all through-out the company. This brings forward a pre-meditated strategy for everyone to be more involved and empowered. This is a recipe destined to bring success, as it provides a liberty to organizations to work over more important stuff and let the software handle, the most important asset in their company, their “employees” .

For corporate world, it is very important for the C-suite level executives to engage with all employees, to bring into alignment  their investment and other strategic decisions, depicting strong leadership traits. According to the HR objectives of any said company, it is easy for them to migrate to systems such as WebHR, by evaluating their needs and then just enabling the modules they want to use, with no transfer or set up fee. The aim is to make it so convenient that any company can come on board and start using the software within a day’s time. The technically sound teams, help with the migration process and streamline their workflows in no time, with competent tech support team that works round the clock to cater to a global audience, WebHR has made HR services not just easier to use but budget friendly. It hardly takes a day or two to train the people to use it and then they are good-to-go. WebHR is also the only HR application that works with “Amazon’s” Alexa, and is moving forward rapidly towards automation and voice enabled assistants to act as HR managers and analysts for different organizations.

The futuristic approach of WebHR’s Cloud powered social HR traits, with its competitive edge, has set it apart and has positioned it globally. The key is to cut down on lengthy unnecessary steps and extensive learning, lowering down the costs for high turn-over companies, substantially reducing the time required by them to hunt, hire and bring on-board an employee, assign tasks right away, giving them a “Facebook” like dashboard to connect and engage, follow the goals, get evaluated, paid, allowed to take leaves and breaks, without actually switching screens or going through strenuous lengthy details.

WebHR’s affordable HCM suite is a big revolution in the HR world that syncs the needs of different organizations with tools available, speed processing their work flows and cutting their budgets to a minimum.

One HR Software to Rule Them All

Organizations go through different stages of metamorphosis and their needs change accordingly. It is imperative to induct HR software ahead of time than to repent later. As companies enter a growth phase it becomes an obstruction to sort things out and then start compiling important verifiable data. To make it a chain of succeeding upgrades, always focus on needs vs. accessories and a viable HR focused mechanism earlier in the life cycle of an organization can not only prove beneficial to them in keeping the records clean but also improve employee engagement and work culture.

The early stage companies are always more focused on “time critical” tasks and it is better to avoid archaic procedures and automate as much as possible.

Here, I have attempted to piece together a summary and a guide of all essential HR software needs, as described by cloud based HR software consultancy Software Advice, that different sizes of companies could possibly execute.

This data is a representation of why anyone should be aware of future innovations in HR, in order to successfully build their company’s HR architecture in a proper fashion.

A. How WebHR helps a company that is just starting up

Payroll:

WebHR helps companies in the stages of their infancy, even when they have no established HR department, all the way to the stage where they have thousands of workers. It helps establishing a basic structure through which they can course through the employee’s earnings and salary ranges, accurately remunerating t workers. Once, setup and integrated with a payroll processor, they can calculate total payroll, charge the company bank account for the correct amount and transfer the wages to their employees.

WebHR successfully manages payroll for over 200,000 employees worldwide and has recently announced that it will start calculating and filing federal taxes in U.S. too. It already has a fully integrated payroll mechanism that serves most of its clients but now it will launch an in-house payroll processing module.

Since payroll data is so classified, WebHR takes extra ordinary stances towards the security of its clients and has been rated highly for that.

Time and Attendance:

WebHR offers a complete tracking mechanism for employee hours, leaves and shifts. It is by far the most extensive time and attendance module, which besides just managing employee time and generating reports, allows the employees to clock in and out of shifts, view schedules and request time off.

WebHR is the most innovative HR solution out there, as it integrates with multiple platforms like Amazon, Microsoft etc and has these services given as voice enabled commands, providing the first ever conversational platform for HR related tasks. This hands-free work environment is the leading reason WebHR is considered as one of those companies that is merging AI into the HR industry at a fast pace.

Consider the fact that if a company is even a bit over 100 employees, it is near impossible to track employees hours and PTO manually and hence, WebHR will certainly help manage the company most effectively in that regard.

Personnel Tracking:

With a solid amount of information and data for each employee in an organization, updating and recording data for employees in the age old method of spreadsheets will certainly not work these days, as it is not only time consuming but also error prone. WebHR helps in digitally managing and keeping a log of every important document and creating an easily manageable database of those records. The migration to WebHR can offer any company a fresh start to straighten out any discrepancies and validate administrative composition, hierarchy and structures of the organization.

WebHR allows the system admin/supervisor to be in charge of the level of accessibility of the employees to update their profiles, data and records themselves. So this way, WebHR’s personnel tracking module helps throughout the lifecycle of an employee, starting from the point when the employee comes on board with the company to the point when they exit.


B. Growth Phase

A company when it enters a growth phase and goes on a hiring spree with a substantial number of people, it could benefit immensely from the modules WebHR has to offer in that category. It is specifically designed to adjust to and cater to organizations with growth spurts and has the flexibility to accommodate and mould itself according to their structures, goals and increasing needs.

Performance:

WebHR helps in an in-depth 360 degree evaluation, which involves multi-layer assessing mechanism through managers, supervisors, colleagues and annual reports involving employee self-assessment. WebHR establishes a mechanism through which individuals, teams and company goals are created and then weighed against employee’s performance focusing on their individual goals.

Performance evaluation and management is not a vanity indicator of a company’s success but a handy tool to judge an actual growth and improvement by accessing “real measurable productivity” that helps employers to identify high performers. This process of identifying high performers also helps companies to recognize their short-comings and then train their employees accordingly. This exercise results in accelerating sales, generate revenue and engage existing employees.

WebHR has a clear edge on other softwares because it helps companies pull out actionable metrics that are essential to formulate analytical data, that structures future strategies.

Benefits:

It is noted that reasonably larger companies, need benefits management for the purposes of enrolling, such as health insurance or a 401 (k). WebHR has a comprehensive and in-depth benefits administration module that makes these processes easier and tacks the data for cost and correspondence towards its expenditure

WebHR’s self service portal can help employees enroll themselves in benefits with an easy vetting process to weigh their options.

Applicant tracking:

WebHR’s ATS is the most popular tool for its clients worldwide and provides a central tool through which recruiters post job openings and can embed it into their websites, post it to social media, refer it to a friend and is also integrated with popular job sites to make the process easier.

It helps in a process of collecting the applications, track the workers, score them individually or set a criterion and test them all the way to where it generates job offer letters for the best candidates.

WebHR has gained immense popularity amongst the recruiters all over the world and has been complimented upon its ease of use and increased functionality. It is also the most sought after feature for most of the companies going through their growth phases.

On boarding:

WebHR’s on boarding tool facilitates new recruits to easily become full fledged employees by moving them through all necessary steps and making the employer’s lives easy. The forms are digitally generated and optimized according the latest rules and regulations.

WebHR takes away the need to have any paperwork involved by automating most of the tasks, providing them an online portal to avoid any confusion regarding their initial roles. WebHR provides a seamless transition to all new job applicants to transition from being a candidate to an actual employee within the company. WebHR makes this tedious task of on boarding for large corporations very simple and swift do that they can move on with the daily routine in no time.

LMS:

WebHR’s learning management module allows the organizations to train their employees in an online portal. LMS is a great way to identify under-performers and give them necessary training courses to re-enforce their core capabilities and enables the employees to perform at a much better pace.
