WebHR – Modern HR For the Industrial Sector

Human resource management has unique sets of challenges when it comes to industrial sector. Workforce management can range in variety and functionality, for industrial sector HR must be a HERO in all departments, including recruiting, on-boarding, training, performance management, mediation, legal compliance, compensation management, training, rewards and appreciation. To top it, it must be engaging and inclusive of all tiers at an organization to build a hierarchy, that works like a well-oiled machine. The tools of automation can save number of precious hours and days that go into building appropriate reporting format. All industries have a potential to grow fast and to keep up with a fast influx of new recruits, it needs an HR mechanism that has the capacity to grow as the company grows, in fact play an integral role in this regard.

For industrial workers the main burden lies on the shoulders of the HR teams and specific HR Personnel, rather than the workers to regulate and update things regularly, hence a strong software makes the very basics of such mechanisms, that can deliver effective results. The workers in these scenarios rely on accurate shift planners, PTO modules and perfected time-tracking software, so that they can work without a glitch and responsible supervisors along with the higher-ups are notified about the lack of worker’s discipline about time management and tardiness as early as possible. The software that can tackle a large workforce, needs the best reporting and time-tracking capabilities, so that there are no jumble-ups that could be both costly and dangerous for certain industries.  Any un-notified absence adds of to loss of work and precious time, that can affect time sensitive daily production units, that work under deadlines and must deliver swiftly.

The extensive business intelligence and reporting formats can help industry with predicting their hiring trends, so that they can have advanced planning regarding such issues, as they arise. Due to periodic spike in productions, the hiring must be designed in accordance, so that the managers could take that burden off their shoulders and dedicate that time into managing the actual workforce, that requires immediate and constant attention at all costs. HR for the industrial sector is tricky and if appropriate measures are not taken from the very beginning, it can take a toll on company’s growth and finances. In a perfect scenario, the hiring for industrial sector is mostly related to search for skilled workers because there is widespread perception that, these jobs are mostly low salaried, dangerous, stressful and require a specific skill set and related certifications. The actual reason behind such a thought process is that, there are certain number of challenges that are mostly safety and compensation related. These companies need to have reserve employees even when they are not working and need to have them on file in case, they might need them.

The most important thing of all, is an abundantly efficient ATS with a job board that is integrated with social media sites so that the organization can reach out to the appropriate talent in time, which in turn would also reflect how attractive the business looks and what benefits would an employee get working at that company. It is not limited to that, to gain talented employees, the companies must go a step ahead and look more competitive, when it comes to offering attractive salary packages and benefits to their workers. Like most industrial sector companies, safety is of utmost importance. A safe and secure work environment can ensure that there are no elaborate medical bills, inflated worker’s compensation costs and lawsuits incase of injuries. These measures can be taken when a responsible and well-trained supervisor or a security specialist has been hired to monitor day to day activities and that dedicated person values your company enough to understand the critical nature of his/her job. This can be enhanced and improved by proper training of the concerned employees, to keep them updated with the set of rules and regulations, along with appropriate standard safety instruction manuals, that are always handy and available. The mangers and supervisors are well informed to have all emergency protocols in place through a guided mechanism to stay focused on events that can happen at the workplace and to act immediately in light of any injuries.

Industrial sectors rely heavily on cutting costs wherever they can, as the cost of manufacturing or building something already require strong financials with budgets, that have no space and elasticity for rising compensation costs and can hinder the growth at any organization. One of the most important steps in this regard is ensuring the quick return of injured employees, to avoid unnecessary costs that might burden an already disturbed schedule of any project at hand. It is also imperative to understand, that employee turnover can be a huge impending negative effect over the company’s finances and hence, employee engagement can bring a sense of belonging to the employees, that is much needed in the fast-paced work environments these days. The connected and well-informed teams perform well under pressure and get a chance to communicate with their higher-ups, reducing the gap between different levels in the organization. As the employees stay engaged, their chances of being happy with their current jobs increase and so the turnover is reduced, when they stick to their positions for long, avoiding precious time spent on training new staff and trying to get them to work on the same pace as the company. Small gestures of appreciation can go a long way and the mechanism of rewards and recognition also ensure they constantly advance and boost their skills to move to higher tiers, within the organization. Offering competitive wages and salary packages to your workers can ensure long term well being and loyalty, sidestepping any grievances that might lead to losing them to rival companies.

Having said that, manufacturing industry is labor concentrated and requires an HR focused approach. A robust and all-inclusive HR like WebHR can increase the globalization of any industry. The above-mentioned measures in the article are everything, that a modern paced company like WebHR handles very effectively and hence, it caters to the ever-growing economies and their industrial sector round the globe. WebHR’s global presence sets it apart from the rest as it is uniquely present in 197 countries and has a vast audience with universal approach. The industrial sector is ripe for the big change that is taking over the rest of the world, the modern age SaaS companies are replacing the ancient ways of handling human resources, with their more connected and employee focused strategies. The research teams at WebHR are building advanced tools using their AI capabilities to assist the industrial sector in tackling their most concerning problems, one of them being the physical wellness of their employees, in harsh weather conditions with outdoor tasks and temperature related issues at the manufacturing or refining plants. As we have seen in the middle east, the body temperatures of the workers may rise and at times cost them their lives in scathingly hot weather conditions. In this scenario, WebHR intends on building wearable devices that can easily talk to the WebHR app and notify the supervisors or people in charge for safety precautions to take immediate actions necessary to prevent any mishap. The instant rise in the body temperatures in these areas, is a matter of huge concern for these companies and ensuring the health of the workers is challenging. Other than that, the colder countries like Canada can have workers suffering because of the extremely low temperatures, causing hypothermia and frost bite. For manufacturing units and refining plants, where workers might have to be present in close proximity to the boilers, it can have the same effects and it is very important for the supervisors and people in charge of the safety of the workers to be notified timely, if any of them is having such symptoms that might need immediate medical attention. The research team at WebHR wants to innovate and maximize the use of the software, so that the industrial sector could benefit from it and automate their workflow. The advances in that direction are designed to make the work flows smooth and workable, so that the managers can handle large number of workers without glitches. The future of HR for the industrial workers, is moving at a fast pace and the new generation of software are making huge leaps to fill in the demand gaps. It is time for innovation to re-vamp this sector and upgrade it according modern technology.

The Fall of Legacy HR applications

In the midst of gigantic businesses that have been the bane of existence for the corporate world and have been relied upon heavily in the past, the winds have shifted, and the sails have been redirected in a newer direction. The past is witness to the glory of these humongous ERPs that have ruled and were the only and “costliest ventures” for the corporate world. Money flowed in, quality was assured but hefty processes were involved, and outcomes were regrettably late and sometimes over budgeted. HR world has been no different, they have always been laden with age old mechanisms and systems that no longer make sense in the modern day. From the time when a true corporate giant prepares to come on-board with such systems to the time when it really is implemented the procedures and steps, cost them an unfair amount of time, dedicated staff and financial burden, all for the sake of a “renown and old ERP” that no longer caters to the modern approach at any certain institution. By the time, a company is ready to implement such a system, a lot of time has been spent training and actually making things work in a flow that it is too late to realize that, the system is a no fit because by that time, an actual agreement and money allocated for such venture has been spent and getting out of such vicious circle is not only hard but is impossible.

Our research analysts have identified the core problem areas as to why there is still an affinity towards such archaic systems, that only sell because of their name and size of the company and it turns out, it is the thought process that goes behind it. The generation gap amongst these systems cannot be denied and like all technologies, there is always a resistance at first to convert to modernity and then it becomes a matter of survival. As for HR is concerned, it has seen tremendous re-modelling over the past five years, and we can’t deny the fact that legacy systems are dying out slowly and gradually. The cloud has taken over and SaaS versus the rest is on a constant rise, we could say that the market is ripe for a complete over haul and it is just a matter of time, all businesses, whether large or small are going to turn towards it. The strategy that the old companies that still want to stay in line with the trends use is, they acquire the ones innovating to upgrade and keep up with the pace, I would say, it works to a certain extent only. I have seen multibillion-dollar businesses that instead of building any technologies or trying to upgrade themselves, fish for companies that have done it all and have sometimes successfully incorporated that within the re-vamped versions of themselves but largely some newer more competitive minds beat them at their game by building and implementing things at a pace that they cannot even fathom.

Some of these have been wise enough to adapt the metamorphosis early on and IBM is notably the one that caught up the vibe when it began, hence their AI capabilities and modernistic approach sets them apart in todays competitive Machine Learning scenario. It is a well appreciated fact, that their advanced technology has been an inspiration for many, and “Watson” has made a remarkable stamp in the history of the pioneers of such technology. It has been proved that the hegemony of enterprise resource planning is over and so is the decades long hold on the market, with this the question arises, as to what should be the next in line to meet the needs of the market that is ready for change?

Companies with multimillion-dollar revenue rely heavily on such legacy systems, no matter what size and type the company is, it is breaking their backs. Whether it is retail, manufacturing, healthcare, finance, agriculture, education or exports, this is still the choice of many, as they believe that it produces ground breaking results and keeps their business going. Is it still true and applicable in this age and time? I believe the answer is “not really” Some of the applications in this regard have risen to the top, although they sometimes prefer not to be called an “ERP”, but the truth of the situation is that, it is what it is. No fancy name can replace the authenticity of the matter, that by the end of the day, these are those legacy system that are now on the decline due to their over budgeted and slow solutions, that no long cater to an audience that is more knowledgeable and aware of their requirements along with the dwindling support for such applications. The doubts to make these huge decisions are justified as the only time a SaaS company takes to adjust them is when they initially signup and rest of the implementation is a breeze as compared to legacy giants like SAP, Oracle etc. The reason, patience in the corporate world is running out and newer players in the market are taking huge chunks of the business because of their smart and fast software capabilities along with the incorporation of business intelligence tools, AI and Machine Learning techniques that make them more lucrative and tech savvy.

This competitive edge in the recent times have resulted in the constant decline of the license fee structures of such systems.  Over the years the license price has dropped significantly and yet $ 1,800 per user cannot be justified as compared to miniscule amount the SaaS business charges for the services that are times, surprisingly superior more advanced than the ancient ones. Oracle for instance has seen a decline in the license renewal and revenue as compared to their cloud revenues, that have increased more than 27% recently and yet the market tends to dive their nose towards the All-in-One robust and comprehensive SaaS software. Another huge concern when we talk about ERPs is cost overrun, which is if we would just put in here in simple words is, crossing the budgets that were originally allocated for that system, sometimes as much as 70%. According to some reports and analysis, majority of these implementations fall short of expectations and fail to provide the benefits that were theoretically stated at the time of the agreement and hence, this calls on the bluff! What goes wrong is, initially a lot is only on paper and agreement and none of it is seen or experienced before deploying it completely and most of the feasibility reports are essentially, only on paper. The ground reality is that as these documentations and processes move as far away from realism, they create a divide between the end users and the providers because the support mechanism is too little and too late to make any amends. All the love lost between this time of implementations and processing, sometimes stretches over a period of few months to even a year without any visible benefits, while the only monetary benefits go to the providers.

It is imperative for the sake of such monetary losses at the hands of ERPs, that the consumer be educated about the financial growth and evident benefits they can gain when they move to SaaS cloud providers, that did not acquire the technology but built it themselves, so that they do not have to rely on third party support mechanisms and yet be using the ten year old technology that they have been using to date. Floating a few updates to the mechanism cannot bring the agility and freshness of a SaaS software that is built on the lines of user friendly UX and UI to help companies leverage their best talent and use them effectively for the sake of exponential growth year over year. Most companies these days have executives that work towards identifying how to make the most of business intelligence tools provided to them, that is where companies like “WebHR” stand out. WebHR provides such HR related business intelligence tools, that go beyond the scope of other such software out there and are an asset to any organization that wants a better return on their investment. It has blossomed and matured over time into a system capable of moving in any directions it lays it eyes on and then excelling at that, it has also been called the “workday” of the modern age HCM suites.

According to Gartner, as noted in 2015, the rise of HCM is a major contributor to the destruction of ERP suites, fired by innovative cloud solutions with more frequent updates, faster deployment and better user experience. It is noted that any integrations, for e.g. slack would take a legacy system, a lengthy set of approvals alongside a longer wait time, till they have been incorporated into the system as compared to the modern SaaS solutions, where crazy developers stay up the nights and get things done. The backend teams work cohesively like a well-oiled machinery that can take up any task that has been provided to them, nothing is impossible when it comes to achieving these targets. With the decline in these age-old ,,systems, there was a fall in the reliance of the servers they used and devices they depended upon, bringing forth the sharp rise of hyperscale cloud providers like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and IBM Softlayer.

At WebHR we are doingeverything a modern HR should be doing, bringing the social aspect into HR and connecting teams, bringing them closer at work along with seamlessly interfacing and talking to other software through APIs. Staying ahead of the curve, with their 24/7 customer support, we believe in dealing with customers as part of the family and every matter is resolved without delays and customizations are made according to the needs, whenever and wherever they are required. We do know that, this leaves the age-old systems, nowhere in the race, as the current competition is amongst the modern and innovative solutions, that are bringing some novel concepts and approaches to the market, are more tech savvy and affordable to their very roots.  It would not be unjustified to say that, legacy HR systems are losing this fast-declining battle against the current point solutions providers, that are ready to bring the much-needed change.

Connect and engage your workforce with the future of HR

The coming years, would be the years of evolution and change for HR. The way we manage people has come a long way, there is an ever changing scenario, when it comes to how a company advertises, recruits, engages and evaluates employees. There was a huge gap between the corporate outlook and the way SMBs see things a few years ago, along with distinct differences between the ways to deal with their respective workers, which seem to have been merging now and the new ideology tells us that every company, large or small needs to quantify and gauge the employee experience and retain their best talent, not just recruit them.

All that glitters is not gold and not all expensive software ensure the quality of services provided. The true demographics of companies all over the world, according to a research done by the analysts at WebHR, tell us a surprising story, there is a huge demand for an All-in-One HCM suite not just for smaller companies but also larger corporations, that tend to burn a whole lot of money on software systems, that are hard to deploy, provide little value compared to the amount spent on them or have an extremely complicated learning curve. What the team at WebHR has found out is that, it doesn’t matter how pricy the software in place, if it fails at basic functionality and doesn’t provide an ease of use for the user, it becomes a burden on the company.

The next generation of software tend to be smarter, precise and more vigilant about the customer requirements, have shorter life cycles for necessary updates essential to make the workflows smoother, make more customization to cater and adjust to different workflows. The newer tools focus on customer queries, their worries and concerns and provide them support free of cost to equip them with a better understanding of the software, helping them use it at its maximum potential. The evolutionary process wants these systems to incorporate more social aspect tools, that keep the teams engaged, performing up to their mark, meet targets and then evaluated more responsibly and fairly. Companies need to make sure that their spending is justified and they get ease of using a software that covers most aspects related to HR and goes an extra mile.

The rapid innovation onset round the globe, accounts for an increased level of automation and intelligent analysis of data to bring out more productivity, that is where the team WebHR understands that AI and data analytics can be a game changer. The use of certain physical devices to extract data, without actually doing any manual work, like Amazon’s Alexa, acting as an HR manager. These are the facts that are changing the way HR looks and feels. The meetings from different ends of the world, done virtually in a conference room with just a VR headset, that works with WebHR. This is just a fraction of what the team at WebHR is planning to do in this space.

The step forward is not just all that innovation but also to meet the human end of it and improve it manifold. The evaluations, as we see it today are based on old tactics and sometimes do not turn out to be beneficial in any substantial change in an employee;s career or pathway. To bring  valuable and significant change, is not to bring out a feedback that is not reflective of employees day to day activities but more directed towards an overall achievement designed to highlight those certain phases where they completed a project and showed their best capabilities, with elated sense of team spirit. If we look into the life cycles of startup, that continually go through different phases of development, their employees go from the very basic in skills set to becoming an integral part of the team, where everyone works as a cohesive and combined force, having a larger success rate of getting things done effectively. The level of persistence and organizational development depends on the level of engagement amongst the employees and the focused objectives to do better by adapting skills at work and utilizing them effectively.

Today’s employees have entered an era of competition, where people grab opportunities faster and are ready to take on career paths, that are challenging and demand a constant process of learning, with that said, finding that talent has become more convenient through tools like “WebHR”, as WebHR helps creating a brand recognition for the company and help them spread good vibes about them, putting forth their mission towards acquiring and retaining the best suitable candidates for their businesses. This not just brings out the companies as specific “brands” but also ensure that their integrity, is the main focus during the process.

The latest wave of showdowns for the leaders in the upper-most tiers of the company and their deeds being highlighted on social media, means surrounding the company culture. No company big or small, can survive on brand names alone, it is imperative to build a culture of trust and understanding as portrayed by the CEO of the company itself. Nothing stays inside a company’s board room, or no misconduct can be brushed under the carpet these days. A better management, is a connected, honest and culture reflective management. A culture where all employees have an equal opportunity to grow and get promoted to the positions they deserve. The mechanism of sharing and appreciating efforts put in by every member of the team, with very visual tokens of appreciations, like “employee of the month”, “high achievers”, badges, that make their day and boost their ego, making them feel involved and engaged at all times.

The team at WebHR has experimented and tested different ways of bringing a social aspect to HR and uplift its current role, moving it towards a platform that provides, connectivity and sense of tribe building amongst the employees. Improving the mental well-being of even the most introverted of the employees in the company by giving them a chance to mingle with all the tiers in the company. The team at WebHR has noticed that it bridges the gap between older and younger employees, creating a unique mechanism of learning, where millennials seek wisdom and advice from older, more experienced ones.

WebHR’s team has always been innovating the ways we deal with our most valuable assets ” our employees”, the team holds this notion highly, that an overall success at any company is directly related to the well-being of their employees. They are not just a tool to get a better ranking but also an essential and integral basis of how a company builds its image from the ground up and be known for that. The modern day companies want more, they want fast, effective and affordable ways of doing things and larger corporations have realized the same thing. The coming year would be the year when affordable HR tools break their way into companies of all sizes and categories. The need has been identified and the change is imminent.

WebHR at Amazon

If you are a SaaS business, you can now offer your services to the customers, with a new feature introduced by Amazon called the “instant access”  HR transformation has re-vamped this industry completely and SaaS software has become the fastest growing industry. So far, WebHR has the honor of retaining its pioneer status and is by far the only SaaS based HR software to be featured at Amazon’s Instant Access. The users can create an instance using their existing accounts and keep the same billing pattern.

WebHR made its place at Amazon’s instant access by following the best  security practices and very robust and advanced APIs, that made the process faster and convenient. The popularity of SaaS HR has uplifted WebHR and has brought forth its market leader status and authenticated its need to be at a marketplace, where customers have a better opportunity to reach out and avail a better HR solution to empower their teams at work.

The rise of cloud based subscription software in HR is on a constant rise and now users can utilize amazon.com to avail the services of WebHR. Amazon’s instant access has a more updated feature and can easily integrate with your PC, Mac and web-based applications.

Instant access isn’t the same as in-app purchase, instead it allows WebHR to sell its subscription software to be available on amazon.com like any other physical item, allowing the same level of discoverablility and presence like any other vendor on amazon.com

From a user’s perspective, WebHR’s delivery mechanism is now seamless, as they shop on Amazon.com, buy the subscription and then access the software by logging in. Subscriptions auto-renew and trials auto-upgrade, so the system has a smooth flow and transitions as the user transitions to the next phase. This provides immense value to the customers, as now they have to go through a simpler procedure.

A study conducted by Forrester Consulting for Amazon states that, “Sellers have chosen SaaS solutions because it lets them be more agile, reach new customers and lower the cost of customer acquisition.

WebHR has always stayed ahead of the curve in the HR industry, always bringing more value to its customers and lowering their costs. It has a dream of providing a complete HCM suite for its users without breaking their budget. So all sizes of companies can avail an equal amount of services as compared to software applications in the past, that took months of implementation, extensive set up cost and exaggerated billing. WebHR brings in a fair and just chance to companies of all sizes to avail the same set of services . WebHR has a unique stance in this regard and has  abolished all tiers to its pricing, introducing a modular approach, so that the software grows along with the growth of an organization, adjusting itself through different stages of metamorphosis in a company.

WebHR’s inclusion at Amazon’s instant access will not only turn beneficial for an already international nature of its audience but will bring an added sense of ease for its customers, to come on board with them.

Digital HR For Healthcare

Health tech/ Healthcare facilities are existing in a “survival” mode for far too long. Most of the techniques and procedures used to manage their day to day lives and keep the HR records intact are old and archaic. Even the software, if they use any, are worse than using paper and files for documenting everything necessary. It takes them hours to populate the data in systems, that are outdated. Businesses like these are usually defined separately from mainstream commercial ones, as their operations fall into completely different categories and have a different way of approaching varied issues at work. Medical or healthcare facilities face time and financial constraints and the money flow sometimes puts a cork on the budget, to do more than just necessary day to day operations . The pace of workflow is usually so fast, that there is less time left to document appraisals or other important HR related tasks and usually get ignored altogether.

The people dedicated to HR department in healthcare businesses,  are not solely responsible for maintaining employee records and keeping everything up to date but usually multi-task and are involved in maintaining a ton of legal paperwork . Hence, they get stressed out, when core HR processes involving complex shifts and time scheduling is handed over to them. The recent wave of Cloud based SaaS models are making lives easier round the world and it has been noted that most of the world’s largest businesses are moving towards this. They provide cost-effective alternatives to complex out-dated systems that were in place and don’t do much to facilitate the healthcare businesses.

It is also noted that in the past, businesses like these have used multiple tools to manage people and it becomes too complicated to make sure everything syncs and works at the same time to produce desirable results. With All-in-one SaaS HR software, this need can be fulfilled. WebHR has made leaps and bounds in this space and provides an All-In-One portal for a company’s HR needs and manages everything from Hire to Retire. It brings an ease of cost effective solution which complies with all Federal Ordinances to make sure it stays updated, as workplace laws continually change at a fast pace.

The availability of an enterprise level solution that costs only a fraction of what most of these businesses spend to manage people, comes as a pleasant wave of change. A much needed transition that every healthcare business and medical facilities require to upgrade themselves and meet their increasing demands of getting work done quickly, without any glitches. A paper-less work environment takes stress off HR personnel  by reducing time taken to to do all the scheduling, appraisals and recruitment. All HR decisions in healthcare businesses are of critical nature and account to immense loss of valuable time and energies, if not done properly. A technically advanced SaaS software is more capable of handling complex organizational healthcare structures and make them part of the software to simplify them. It is imperative to understand that healthcare is a whole lot different from the rest of the commercial world and with the latest wave of crunching down funds for such businesses, it is important to have the knowledge about the budgeting brackets for different sizes. A SaaS model has the capabilities to adjust to all sizes and needs with a more modular approach and caters to specific needs by solving most issues at hand and then has room for all kinds of operations going on with a complete sense of privacy and security, as we know that all records at these businesses hold confidential content, that needs protection. A solution that cuts the costs and caters to their needs, is exactly what is missing in most enterprise solutions and that is where SaaS models have an edge.

Healthcare is notorious for their love of paperwork, which is more of a legal formality than necessity. With all the legal hassle to store and document the massive amount of paperwork, the mainstream HR practices are ignored till the last minute. The critical employee appraisals, forms and surveys are usually lost under heaps of legal issues. To bring a sense of order and sanity to chaotic work schedules, these businesses need to drift away and modernize, moving to a more dynamic SaaS Cloud platform that provides an end-to-end HR solution that handles everything from the point of hiring people to the point when they exit, in a seamless and efficient way. Software As a Service model like WebHR, can save thousands and millions of dollars for large hospitals and medical facilities, even the ones working multi-nationally as it already deals with clients from 196 countries and allows them to use the software in more than 30 languages. These newer systems can replace old broken ones, that are in place since the 80s, yes it is hard to believe, but there are facilities that don’t only need to stop using paper but also upgrade to technologies that solve modern day problems. It is not only about lowering down the cost to deal with the hefty and cumbersome tasks but also to automate most of the procedures, allowing teams to be more efficient and productive. These SaaS HR software need minimal skill sets for a person to use it to its maximum potentials, hence allows more room for the dedicated people to do their regular health related workflows, while the software stream-lines  their hardcore HR processes. Scheduling of the nursing staff that works in shifts in the emergency department can not only be handled by the software, managers can remotely access/ monitor it, while traveling. These tools provide custom tailored analytical reports,  that allows managers to judge their working cohorts and adjust the staff accordingly. This lets them control their hiring processes according to the amount of work and the way it varies seasonally.

We can conclude, that as the industry changes and goes under metamorphosis, there is a huge need for SaaS  Cloud Software to fill this gap and provide a modern, more “complete”, cost-effective solution and the healthcare businesses need this now, more than ever before.

WebHR in Gartner’s FrontRunners 2017

WebHR has been included on the 2017 FrontRunners quadrant for HR software!  http://www.softwareadvice.com/hr/#top-products

FrontRunners is powered by Gartner Methodology and offers a data-driven assessment of the most capable and valuable systems for small businesses. It’s driven by real user reviews/ratings, and verified product data.

 

This FrontRunners analysis is a data-driven assessment identifying products in the HRIS software market that offer the best capability and value for small businesses. For a given market, products are evaluated and given a score for the capability (x-axis) and value (y-axis) they bring to users. FrontRunners then plots the top 25-30 products in a quadrant format.

To be considered for the HRIS FrontRunners, a product needed a minimum of 20 user reviews, a minimum capability user rating score of 3.0 and a minimum value user rating score of 3.0. In most cases, we evaluate hundreds of products and feature only 20-30 as FrontRunners; thus, all products that qualify as FrontRunners are top performing products in their market.

WebHR is proud to be included in this category and wants to share this exciting news with its clients and customers.

It is about time, that HR enters into newer more advanced territories. WebHR has been a “lucky star” to almost do things before the market catches up with it, introducing the latest trends and technologies at a rocket pace. The latest being its “Conversational UX”

WebHR has a more agile focus and is targeting consumers with precision now, it has a habit of engaging in rapid innovation and upgrades. That includes the use of Bots and AI to simulate a conversation, creating a co-worker or an assistant that deals with your day to day HR related tasks.

The revolution has carried WebHR on a wave of new discoveries and now, it not only uses the chat-bots but has ventured into merging HR with AI enabled devices, specially “Amazon Echo” using its virtual assistant Alexa, which acts as your personal HR buddy. This is the next big thing people have been waiting for, the much needed leap, specifically for start-ups and emerging businesses that cannot afford costly enterprise solutions or large teams to deal with HR. So, there is good news for them – WebHR is their savior and it opens up new avenues for them, assisting them to work smarter and faster.

This integration with Amazon’s Alexa is the first step as it wants to now interface with whatever, interconnected device or AI assistant you use, such as  Cortana, Siri or Google Home.  This would let your “Amazon Echo” or any device to enhance your workplace productivity by minimizing the time required by actual people to do the same task.

In the era of GIG economy, workforce comprises of all kinds of workers like full-time, contractors, part-time and free lancers, automation will probably bring relief to new businesses by reducing its costs and budgets, giving the HR team more space to focus on strategy to improve the quality of work, rather than wasting their time on menial tasks.

The leaders that want to blend in with the futuristic trends and technologies should look forward to incorporating tools like WebHR and promote a culture of ease and comfort leading to a fluid and smooth work flow. Lets embrace a positive change for the betterment of work culture around the globe.

When WebHR interfaces with Alexa, WebHR becomes the new assistant that not only answers your HR related queries but will also help you with tasks, such as, “Mark my attendance,” “I am going for lunch” “schedule a meeting”, “apply for sick leave”, “email me my pay stub ” etc. So when you  implement AI in WebHR you open up a completely new perspective into your HR data by engaging in a conversation and asking for information from the system, such as “How many female employees we have? ” “who is present today?”, “Give me last year’s employee retention rate”, “Give me performance evaluation reports” etc.

The top management may immensely benefit by having a quick access to their workforce data by analyzing/crunching key HR matrices such as, employee retention rate, employee turn over, payroll summary, head count (headcount by category, nationality, gender, age range etc). This helps bridge the gap between the management and HR data by allowing rapid reach to important decision making data and reports required to accelerate growth and prosperity of the company. This is bringing the spark back into your boring HR routines by quitting multiple apps to get your HR related work done, talk to “Alexa” and get what you want in a simple more natural language.

Not only would you enjoy this new way of dealing with your software but it would make a heck of a difference in the way you can actually summarize and smartly utilize your time with just a few sentences. There is no screen, no stress and no manager to deal with. On a lighter note, you don’t have to worry about your manager getting sick or taking a day off, or being late to a critical meeting. Alexa kind of takes care of that part by being available at all times.

What’s better than a chat bot? A physical device, a portable “physical device”. Think about the immense benefit it can provide to companies short on funds and a mere $49.99 of one time investment into buying Amazon Echo, can eliminate the need for elaborate HR teams. The purpose is to automate what can be and create a “yes-man HR manager” you can easily talk to.

With a continues hype around connectivity of these devices as the trend continues, WebHR surfaces as the first company ever, to have entered and bring a much needed innovation to the HR world. This is a huge untapped potential and an opportunity which a lot of companies are unfortunately missing out on.

Since WebHR supports more than 20 languages, imagine what relief it is going to be on a global scale, when on the far corners of the world where English is not a native language and this provides them a platform of natural communication with their system to get the work done efficiently without the barriers erected by language. An object placed at every desk, conversing with you in your language and performing tasks, that would otherwise have required a lot of time for completion.

It can proudly be claimed that WebHR is an undisputed “pioneer” and has brought disruption to the HR industry because along with its claim of bringing an affordable corporate structured HR service, it is now also the first one to have gone a step further and has introduced HR services through AI enabled devices. It has unlocked a hidden potential of providing a hands-free work environment which is a bliss for company heads and top managers.

We are thrilled to offer this “hands-free” work environment related to HR to companies of all sizes and structures, since WebHR is more like an “Uber” of the HR industry and has set new norms by re-writing the rule book. “The bar for excellence has been raised”.
