Posted by Tara MacKinnon | June 23, 2020

What Payroll, HR and Workforce Management professionals need to know about going hosted.

Transitioning to the cloud may seem daunting at first, but once you understand how greatly your organization will benefit from the switch, you’ll be kicking yourself that you didn’t do it sooner.

The fact is, traditional HR systems are aging at a rapid rate. In turn, many companies are quickly adopting cloud-based workforce software. Here’s why:

Increased Productivity

When your workforce management tools are cloud based, you can access what you need anytime, anywhere and from any device. By reducing redundant tasks, managers can focus on the big picture. And when employees can complete tasks without assistance, they become more efficient and empowered.

Cost Savings

With a cloud-based system, you only ever pay for the features you want. Embracing the cloud eradicates your businesses’ need for major upgrades every few years. Compared with traditional systems that require expensive upgrades and maintenance – choosing to go hosted has the potential to save you tens of thousands of dollars – now and in the future.

Companies that opt for cloud-based software pay no installation costs, ongoing maintenance expenses, or any hidden fees, which makes it easier for you to budget and allocate resources effectively, all while enjoying an enhanced software platform.

Enhanced Accessibility

Cloud-based solutions provide flexibility and control for accessibility. You can easily create the appropriate user settings to ensure only the essential people have access to sensitive employee and company data.

Efficient Integration

If you’re familiar with the frustrations of integrating on-premise software, you already know that synchronizing business systems can be an uphill battle. Thankfully, cloud-based software offers application programming interfaces (APIs), so your company can easily integrate systems and share valuable data in real time. As a result, you’re spared the integration headaches while enjoying a much-improved experience.

Way Less Paper

Say goodbye to those dusty file cabinets in the storeroom. With cloud-based software, you don’t need to safeguard paper documents and external storage systems from natural disasters or malfunction. Cloud storage saves all of your company’s information, so you don’t lose sleep over the security of your documents. It also means you can avoid wasting time hunting down paperwork – all of your schedules, tax information and records are saved, safe, and available at any time.

It’s time for a change

Now’s the time to embrace the benefits of a cloud-hosted environment for your company’s workforce management needs. With the right cloud-based solution, you can benefit even more with self-service, and integrated tools for Payroll, HR, Time & Attendance, Recruiting and Onboarding.

Cloud-based software solutions are transitioning business into the future. The pros of going hosted far outweigh the cons of a slight inconvenience. And besides, no one likes to be the last to adapt, right?
