Today's HR software has the potential to change organizations completely, both in their personnel departments and across the whole firm. There's a plethora of tools and solutions to help recruit and retain staff, as well as minimizing the associated paperwork. However, many clients are concerned about how new eHR solutions or add-ons to existing software will integrate with other systems in the business. There is inevitably always a difference between the sales pitch for the product and the actuality, admits Stevan Rolls, a director on the HR and payroll solutions board at Ernst & Young. Michael Richards, chief executive of software firm Snowdrop Systems, has even taken a rather mobile approach. The range of potential training is wide — another question to ask existing clients of providers. To get your return on investment, you need to ensure staff know how to use the system and how to get more out of it. Most people learn the basics, but if they appreciate that there's a lot more to be gained and learned from an ongoing basis, they will ultimately get more out of it.
