Everywhere you turn, software seems to be the answer. Most Businesses are already using software for their marketing, accounting and management. SMEs have to consider the need for human resources software for their small business, it’s much more than a luxury but a necessity.
SMEs, Startups and fast-growth companies have been averse to adding sufficient HR systems, policies and personnel early in their life cycles. Whether by choice or accident, they wait too long and then develop serious people management problems.

Nearly 75% of HR departments in Kenya and Generally in Africa, do not have comprehensive and effective performance measurement systems. Despite this, the HR services market is already a billion industry. As Human Resource Consulting Company we saw an opportunity to help growing companies to use automation to make business decisions, all at an affordable cost.
“We built this solution, as a frustration to what we faced as HR consultants- we manage various HR departments in different companies and it was overwhelming to manage all this data manually and the solutions available were not user friendly, costly and some are not customised to this market. The software has been a saving grace for us and we decided to release in 2017 as Software as a Service,” she told TechMoran.

If you’ve been manually handling HR operations in the past, you may wonder about the benefits of paying for a software system. But take a closer look:
1. Cost savings
HR Expert Offers- 80% saving on HR related costs.
The Software costs from a minim of 200 USD Per Annum, Given the cost of hiring a junior officer to enter and verify data is costly and time consuming. Companies can invest this amount towards revenue generating activities e.g Hiring additional sales people.
2. Better use of time
Time is the one thing your HR staff can’t get more of. Thus, it’s imperative that you help them create systems that maximize time. If your HR team is constantly inputting data by hand they won’t have time for things that matter more — like handling legal issues and enforcing company policies.
The software platform helps businesses save time and better allocate manual resources to areas that really matter to a company’s health.
3. More accurate insights
With the amount of data that comes through an HR department these days, it’s virtually impossible for any person — or group of people — to process everything. This means valuable information is constantly being overlooked or misplaced.
The beauty of working with HR software is that you don’t have to rely on your own human limitations. Data is synthesized and analyzed in powerful ways that allow you to obtain more accurate insights and make strategic decisions.
4. Surprisingly cost effective
Many business people believe that purchasing a top-quality HR software package will bankrupt their entire budget. This is simply not true.As a company we have various packages that can work with even the smallest startup budget. “The organisations don’t have to invest infrastructure (servers, support, and security), the software comes as a package.
Some would even argue that you can’t afford not to use HR software. The amount of money you’re losing in terms of lost man-hours and mistakes doesn’t even begin to compare to the up-front cost of HR software. It’s an easy call to make.
The next phase of the software is to create a mobile app, create additional features-like tracking time attendance, integrating other software usability tools and deploying it to the rest of Africa.
