In today’s global market, it is vital for companies to hold on to their most vital asset, which is the human resource, if they are to remain relevant in spite of the aggressive competition all around them.
This is because the success chart for any company not only depends on factors such as technology, strategies, and products, but also on its labor force to a large extent.
By using modern, high-quality software technologies, companies can easily achieve effective human resource management, which will in turn lead to maximum workforce output.
For those that are sold at a price, you might want to Google the internet for discounts.
This is a free and popular human resource management software that effectively improves communication within a company.
Using the software, information from HR managers can be conveyed with ease to employees in every department in a company.
When installed, OrangeHRM takes up minimal space of only 5.7 MB. In spite of its small size, it provides valuable features that cover all necessary functions in a company.
Examples of modules available in the software include applicant module, employee self-service module, personal information management module, and benefit module.
Waypoint HR is one of the most highly rated open source human resource software among users.
This is because it offers a flexible and stable interface that allows HR managers to store all the information concerning their employees in an easy-to-access manner.
Since it is also user-friendly, managers with different technical knowledge and background can operate it with ease.
For certain organizations, it is important that employee attendance be accurately monitored.
Such organizations can benefit from TimeTrex software, as it effectively handles the task of monitoring attendance.
This is because it is a real-time app that supervises employee attendance from any global location.
Companies can also customize the software to meet their budget and requirements.
Being a web application, any company can use LATRIX to manage and monitor its workforce.
There are 17 different varieties that companies can choose from to configure the software according to their unique requirements.
Other features in this open source software include shifts, time zones, public holidays, and block periods.
This is the software of choice for streamlining a company’s recruitment process.
The software effectively tracks applicant numbers and evaluates their performance.
HR managers can also use the application to check each applicant’s background.
Additional features in this software include customized assessments examinations, reporting, and email and resume screening.
Editor’s Note: Examine All Your Options
Human resource software has largely grown and developed over time and today, and as seen from the selections above, there are various kinds available, some free and some not.
The selection process should be taken diligently and slowly — last thing you want to do is getting everything up and running only to discover the operational costs and needs are also absorbing your budget or profits right out the door.
We consider some more options in our later post Open Source HR Software? or Closed Source? Which Shall It Be? where we provide more food for thought, advice, as well as a starting point for your needs assessment and selection process.
If you have already opted out of pursuing an Open Source System or want to discover what options are available to you through Closed Source Systems, then by all means go for a free consultation.
What Are Your Thoughts??

✔ We will probably revisit this within the coming year, whatelse would you like to see reviewed?
