How do I know which employee management system is right for me?

Choosing the right system can be daunting; here are some tips for things to consider:

  • Think about what you intend to use the system for, what do you need it to be able to do? Make a list of things the system must have and what would also be a nice to have.
  • Consider your internal resources vs the support you have in setting the system up.  Will the supplier help with set up, data entry and training employees? If so, will they charge you for this?
  • Will they system be continuously developed so it remains up-to date with and delivers additional features?  If so, will there be a charge for this?
  • What type of support will you and your colleagues receive and will it cost?
  • How and where the data is stored? Is it encrypted? Is it GDPR compliant?
  • What additional features come with the system and would they be useful to line managers?
  • Will you be tied to a contract? Do you want to be?
  • Do you have to pay extra for extra modules?
