In small businesses, the Human Resources department often juggles many tasks: payroll, tracking vacation and holiday pay, and keeping records of salaries, promotions, transfers, and retirements. Human resources may also deal with employee health insurance and approving – or not approving – workers’ compensation and determining whether or not absences are excused or unexcused.
Too Much Information Stored in the Wrong Places
This is a lot of information for any one department to handle, and if a company isn’t using the proper software tool, there is a big risk of compiling inaccurate or incomplete information. The latest and greatest software allows you to move away from storing information in places like Microsoft Excel and Word, mostly
because these applications are unconnected and do little to offer a single source of continuity.
How Sage HRMS Can Help
The best way to keep a central repository of HR related information is to use a human resource management solution like Sage HRMS (formerly known as Sage Abra), which offers overviews on benefit packages and automatically calculates company premiums and benefit costs. It handles time and attendance management in great detail, the types of absences by employees – jury duty, illness, medical leave, bereavement leave, etc. – and provides on-demand reporting for stakeholders who need need accurate employment records to aid their decision-making processes. Sage HRMS also allows you to keep past employee history, which will bring a whole new dimension to the efficiency of your human resources department.
Sage HRMS is also equipped to handle confidentiality and to be compliant with local, state, and federal privacy laws. The software keeps individual files secure by allowing you to authorize access only for the employees who need the information to do their jobs. Access can also be assigned in “stages” – no access, read-only access, and editing access – so that the information can be altered only by those with the authority to do so.
Do you have questions about Sage HRMS or about using it – and/or other Sage products – to move your business to a higher level of proficiency? If so, please contact Southeast Computer Solutions so we can help.
