Your employees are your biggest investment, but they're also your most vital assets. Your HR solutions should help you create an engaging environment for your employees, improving their performance and increasing their productivity. Your retention rates go up as a result and, best of all, your customer satisfaction increases, too. (Happy employees mean happy customers.)
This renewed focus on employee satisfaction casts light on a gaping void in the HR software marketplace; ERP vendors have been scrambling to fill it, working hard to deliver on the promise of integrative end-to-end business management solutions with premier functionality and enterprise-wide benefits.
With cloud migration, ERP software has been given a remarkable boost: Cloud ERP provides immense and far-reaching enhancements to business processes. In this four-part series, we explore the six key business areas that stand to benefit from cloud migration. Let's start with the first two:
1. User Experience
As a business owner, you need HR solutions that your employees actually use, which means you need to focus on user experience. While small business software formerly focused on building 'systems of record,' today's approach has been to create 'systems of engagement.'
One of the most compelling reasons many small and mid-sized businesses switch to the cloud is to improve engagement and the user experience. Cloud ERP enables you to fully integrate your human resources software, creating a configurable and easy-to-use system that's both effective and engaging. The learning curve is less disruptive because your employees don't need in-depth training or require over-the-shoulder guidance from your HR team.
Tech trends have changed dramatically in the past few years. There are currently four times as many mobile devices as desktop computers in the world, so mobility has become the most critical purchasing criterion for businesses searching for HR solutions.
Because cloud ERP operates remotely, it's the most mobile-friendly platform available. It allows employees to access the system from anywhere and with any device they choose, essentially expanding both the workplace and the workday. Mobile ERP is, without question, well on its way to fully replacing its outdated, on-premise counterparts.
