HRsmart Inc., a leading provider of web-based talent management solutions, and DDC HRO, part of the DDC Group of Companies, announced today that they have formed a strategic alliance to provide a fully integrated outsourced solution for employee talent management Â combining HRsmartÂs leading web-based technology with DDCÂs comprehensive suite of onshore and offshore business processing and employee/customer support services.
The alliance is aimed at providing a powerful and cost-effective alternative for small to medium sized businesses, with best of class processes for administering tasks and transactions relative to typical employee administration and support.
The alliance will capitalize on the growing power of the Internet and DDCÂs world-leading data capture and administration capabilities Â allowing clients to equip and support their employees with state-of-the-art HR tools and practices in the most cost effective way possible. New tools featured by the alliance include Two-way Outlook/Lotus Notes integration, which bi-directionally integrates the scheduling functions of other software applications, Contact Management, which enables instant capture of new contact information by Outlook/Lotus Notes, and Ad-hoc reporting and Ad-hoc survey tools.
By providing self-service tools and outsourcing workforce administration and support functions, companies are enabling their HR staffs to focus on core competencies and value added services to employees.
The alliance will provide clients with access to leading-edge technology at a low per employee per month rate - increasing the productivity of all employees while limiting the capital cost, risks and liabilities of HR technology ownership.
ÂWe are very excited about partnering with HRsmart,Â said David Kinnear, CEO of DDC HRO. ÂTheir Talent Management Suite perfectly compliments our particular area of expertise in the provision of value-based HR technology, consulting and support services to forward-thinking companies seeking greater automation, efficiency and cost-reduction in their HR environment.Â

The HRsmart Talent Management Suite includes Applicant Tracking, Employee Referral, On-boarding, Career Development & Succession Planning, Performance Appraisal, Salary Budgeting, 360 Review and Learning Management, thereby providing companies with a fully integrated employee acquisition and retention capability, while still providing single, stand alone applications for those with specialized requirements.
