Launch of enhanced Human Capital Management solution looks to support the shifting strategic role of HR departments

HCM Launch

Extensive user and industry feedback has shaped the development of a heightened version of the Human Capital Management (HCM) system from leading international HR and finance software solutions supplier Talentia Software. The new system offers flexibility with an intuitive feel, and can be fully-customised to reflect the culture and scope of any given business.

Talentia was the first provider in the marketplace to offer a mature self-service HCM system and the enhanced solution is the evolution of a product that has been deployed to over 700 clients. Talentia HCM has been developed to support the changing role of HR departments within organisations by reducing data administration and streamlining HR processes such as the updating of employee details and holiday requests.

“Perceptions of HR are changing as its departmental remit grows to that of strategic business partner and as such our HCM software has evolved to reflect this shift,” states Julie Windsor, Managing Director at Talentia Software UK. “The intuitive self-service interface provides a single consistent source of data and frees up time for HR teams, enabling a move away from being an administrative function through the provision of instant access to HR intelligence.”

Talentia HCM has been developed with end users firmly in mind by offering both familiar icons and a ‘one click’ process, with all key actions found on the homepage. The software, configurable to the requirements of the user, allows employees from companies of all sizes to easily add and change personal details and to view career development plans.

The comprehensive system also offers security over sensitive data by allowing businesses to host data either on site or in a SaaS (software as a service) environment and enables managers to view organisational charts for any employee at a glance, assisting with succession planning and providing the location of high performers.

The enhanced solution’s launch follows the recent publication of survey results that demonstrate the importance of maximising talent. In the survey, 290 HR Directors, professionals and company managers revealed that 58% of respondents said their organisations had found it more challenging to recruit the right talent into their business compared with three years ago. Julie Windsor, Managing Director at Talentia Software UK, adds, “Talentia HCM offers organisations immediate and quantifiable benefits such as increased productivity, time savings, cost reduction and process automation. The design and navigation improvements that we have made to Talentia HCM facilitate the streamlining of business operations and offer considerable time and intelligence benefits for HR practitioners.”

Market leader Talentia Software’s Human Capital Management (HCM) solution provides the foundation for organisations’ HR operations and delivers vital HR intelligence by improving and simplifying the process for optimal management of Human Capital. Talentia HCM provides businesses with training, succession and career planning, recruitment, performance, 360 feedback and organisational planning support.
