- Your organization is in the midst of a selection and implementation process for a human resource information system (HRIS), and there is a need to disambiguate the market and arrive at a shortlist of vendors.
- Your organization has identified a shortlist of vendors, and you must make an informed decision not only to select one (or more) of the solutions, but also to adequately prepare for a successful implementation process.
- The marketspace has a multitude of solutions positing to provide strong capabilities in most areas of functionality. Differentiating between the solutions is difficult and going through a lengthy RFX process with all vendors is an inefficient approach in terms of time, effort, and cost.
- There are many unstructured opinions, casting a shadow of ambiguity on the entire process, bogging down decision makers in wasteful “analysis paralysis.”
- Market complexity should not equate to decision complexity. Info-Tech’s navigation of the complicated and diverse HR market will help organizations make informed buying decisions.
- No single HRIS will satisfy all needs. Thinking about how the system will be used within the organization can be more important than the selection itself.
- HRIS is a business initiative, so make project success a shared responsibility. System integrators are a resource, but ownership resides internally.
Impact and Result
- Follow a structured, accelerated approach to launch your HRIS project, filling in knowledge gaps in an organized way that prepares your organization to make an informed decision.
- Explore the vendor landscape to understand the HRIS space, familiarizing yourself with the major players in the space and the types of capabilities offered.
- Benchmark your shortlist of vendors with the industry champions in the different use cases, and evaluate how they fit with your organization’s identity and needs.
- Acquaint yourself with the standard steps in the process to inform decisions related to successfully implementing your solution of choice.
- Fast-track selection and preparation for implementation with a proven business-partnered methodology.
