Challenges HRM SaaS companies face

Human resource management systems function to streamline recruitment and hiring processes as well as manage human capital. HRM SaaS providers offer an easy way to synchronize the process of hiring, managing employee benefits, time tracking, and payroll so business can spend more time focusing on their core competencies. Software as a service vendors must take on the challenge of connecting third party applications on-premises and in the cloud in order to obtain useful employee information for tasks such as performance management. Through use of cloud integration, HRM SaaS providers can simplify the task of talent management by having easy access to information that resides on-premises or in the cloud, making it possible to drive new business with deeper connectivity.

Wanted: Easy HRM integration

Integration among existing and new applications is a major concern for users. A recent survey shows that a 94% of respondents, many of them executive level leaders, consider integration to be one of their top concerns. Over 90% of those responding to the survey specify integration with other services and applications as being the number sales hurdle to overcome. Moreover, nearly 20% of respondents are not satisfied with their existing integration solutions. What customers want is a way for their existing applications to connect seamlessly with various services, simplifying their processes.  

Plenty of HRM vendors have taken the integration issue into their own hands by attempting custom integration. However, the trouble with is custom integration is that it is difficult, expensive, and fragile. The fragility of a custom integration makes it difficult to find and fix errors when they occur. Because custom integration is no easy chore, hiring a software developer specifically for the task is often necessary, usually requiring additional expenses in the form of a $100k developer’s salary.
