The ability to effectively manage labour and all the relevant data that goes into documenting employee activity is down to what solution a business has in place. Technology suppliers to the human capital management (HCM), workforce and HR markets believe that the quality of technology a company invests in makes all the difference.
There are simply too many variables and nuances to consider when it comes to workforce management today and this is why technology is so important claims AWM360 Data Systems. With the need for businesses to take immediate and sustainable control of time & attendance, access control, HR processes and payroll administration, the volume of solutions being rolled out has escalated.
“There is a demand for solutions that are competitively priced, that can scale with a business and can interface with existing systems and automate processes such as data collection, transfer and storage,” explains Guenter Nerlich, MD, AWM360 Data Systems.
He adds that this demand has resulted in numerous service providers and an equal number of new solutions entering the market. “We haven’t reached saturation point yet, but there are certainly a high number of solutions now available. This forces decision-makers to be selective and discerning when it comes to reviewing technology options,” he continues.
This review is a critical step in the process of acquiring and integrating the right technology, solutions that links up with game-changing influences like the cloud, mobility, virtualisation and big data management.
Specifically, users today are looking to capitalise on aspects like multi-platform access and multiple operating systems says Nerlich. “There is no doubt that any solution that offers the capability to connect to advances like Near Field Communications and embedded security, as well as the provision of real-time access, will stand out in a highly competitive area of ICT.”
