SaaS and Cloud Computing - What do they mean to the HR & Payroll Professional?
Livonia, Mich. (Vocus) July 29, 2009
WorkForce Software, Inc. , the leader in workforce management solutions for organizations with complex policies and compliance concerns, announces its 2009 July Learning Series webinar, "SaaS and Cloud Computing - What do they mean to the HR & Payroll Professional?"
The popularity of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is on the rise in today's economy. According to THINKstrategies/Cutter Consortium 2008, the number of companies using a SaaS system grew from 32-percent in 2007 to 63-percent in 2008. An additional 28-percent are considering implementing a SaaS solution in 2009.
This month's learning series webinar focuses on how SaaS solutions benefit HR and payroll departments. With SaaS, HR professionals can quickly deploy a workforce management system that automates complex labor polices and business rules, and manages compliance with labor regulations and union contracts. With the majority of mundane day-to-day tasks automated, the HR organization can focus on the strategic HR issues and initiatives.
SaaS offers a way for organizations to get the system they need quickly because it is sold as a subscription with low monthly payments. WorkForce Software understands that in a down economy organizations do not have the capital expenditure budget for the consulting services that typically accompany the purchase of a workforce management system. Earlier this year, WorkForce Software introduced EmpCenter® Delivered , the only SaaS workforce management solution that includes the cost of professional services in the monthly subscription fee. Because there are no upfront costs, organizations see an immediate ROI.
Webinar attendees will learn about the SaaS advantages, disadvantages, and trends. The speaker, Mr. Roger Smith, CPP and consultant for the PayrollProf, has an extensive background in the HR and payroll industry and is a frequent speaker and contributor to the American Payroll Association. He will discuss how to choose a workforce management system that meets your organization's complexity requirements; there are SaaS systems that are limited in capabilities and there are SaaS systems that can meet any complex labor regulation or policy. Mr. Smith provides an in-depth look into the SaaS solution and the benefits to HR and payroll.
"Our recent product launch of EmpCenter Delivered is a game-changing solution in the industry," said WorkForce Software President and CEO Kevin Choksi . "It is the only SaaS workforce management solution to meet the labor complexities that large organizations face with no upfront costs. For the past ten years, we focused on our customers, and this offering demonstrates how we continue to invest in our customers' needs."
The Learning Series webinar, "SaaS and Cloud Computing - What do they mean to the HR & Payroll Professional ," is available online and on-demand to accommodate any schedule.
