Technology to regulate human resources (HR) remains one of the fastest growing and most relevant within business management solution development. Today, the emphasis is on big data management and analytics to strengthen operations – with security the first priority.
Companies are beginning to realise the power that lies in effective data management and the deployment of solutions to help store, transmit and analyse this information.

Accsys is a national supplier of people management software and hardware solutions within the HR, payroll and time and attendance space and member of the BCX Group.

Teryl Schroenn, CEO of Accsys, explains that systems and solutions that are used to automate and enhance HR-related processes and procedures have evolved, and now are used not only to control the use of resources, but protect them as well.

“Traditionally, systems have been designed to empower users with the means to better perform key processes and procedures. They would automate, correlate and regulate details, allowing line managers to apply their relevant skills.

“However, today there is a clear understanding among decision-makers to bring on board employee and employer self service, to consider the impact of BYOD (bring your own device), the cloud and the generation of data. This has driven the development of systems that are designed to provide access at specific times – for specific people – that provides for centralised control,” says Schroenn.

HR systems are now being brought out with the need for transparency and strict compliance with corporate governance regulation. But, security mechanisms and features have been added to ensure the equally important requirement for security.

“HR in the cloud is a reality,” adds Schroenn. “It proves the level to which the industry has kept up with trends and moved past traditional paradigms to provide investors with packages that add immediate value within current market conditions.”

Accsys management advocate a careful balance between policies to foster an open and transparent environment, but add that there should be clear steps taken to enforce regulation that both keeps employees informed and protects the company.

By prescribing to this course of action, managers will do themselves and their companies a great service in helping to encourage open and constructive communication says Schroenn.
