HR Software stands for systems with modules that streamline human resource processes from recruitment and screening to on-boarding employees and performance appeasement. These systems assist HR administrators to locate, keep, and reward the most successful team members, especially in spheres with a considerable talent base. Certain products focus on specific modules, while the rest of applications offer the entire suite of modules such as payroll, time and attendance, benefits management, and performance record. Some products may even be purchased as a part of an ERP suite. Highly specialized HR Management tools could also encompass functions like employee self-service, fingerprint I.D., and smart reporting, that summarizes employee-relevant data with drill-down details and dashboard overview to empower directors to make reasonable decisions.
Disaster recovery and security are two main aspects that need to be considered by SaaS purchasers when evaluating potential vendors.
Many SaaS providers do not have a disaster recovery site. Therefore, ask the following queries to your shortlisted vendors: How do you test your disaster recovery processes? What is your recovery time? How often do you test? Do you have dispersed infrastructure; are your chief site and your disaster recovery site situated in different geographical locations?
You need to be aware that many SaaS vendors do not use enterprise-grade infrastructure to deploy SaaS apps. Many systems have multiple providers. For instance, there may be a firewall provider, an Internet provider, and a few others too in the mix. If a problem rears up, there is a lot of finger-pointing. This problem is common with on-premise IT applications. The solution is to minimize the number of vendors so that there is answerability to ensure they take responsibility about performance.
Ask the potential SaaS vendors the following questions about security: Is your company SAS70 compliant? What security measures are used at your data centers? What security audits and guidelines does your firm follow? Who manages access and identity management, web application firewalls, log file management, and network connectivity?
Needless to say, take your time to research methodically and get the answers to the above queries before you invest in an appropriate SaaS system.
