The new year is almost here, and it’s a good time to start your research if you are thinking about modernizing HR processes or upgrading your enterprise HCM systems. The average HR software system in large companies today is 5-7 years old. If that seems pretty new to you, think about this: smartphones have only been around for 9 years! Technology changes fast, and the decision to upgrade all too often can be very slow. As a result, HR organizations are running inefficiently, resources are overburdened, and employees are disengaged (whether you know it or not).
We know it is not easy to introduce change. There is a comfort level with existing systems and procedures, even if those systems lack functionality and efficiency. To make the transition easier it is important to have the right partner that has done it all before. How do you begin to vet potential partners?
To help you out, we’ve created a questionnaire and checklist for the vendor selection process.
Utilize these questions and checklist to facilitate your team’s due diligence. They will encourage insightful discussions with potential partner resources and your key decision-makers, helping you to make an informed decision.
We organized this checklist around what makes an ideal IT partner based on our own experiences and client stories to provide you with insight to make the transition from one HCM system to another as smooth as possible.
