HR Technology Partners Announces New "HRMS HEADSTART" Program To Assist Human Resources With Selecting The Right HR Software

December 14, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
December 14, 2007 - HR Technology Partners (HRTP), a leading consultant and provider of human resources software, payroll, talent management, and Time & Attendance solutions for small and medium sized businesses, is announcing today the availability of the HRMS HEADSTART program. The Program is a consulting service that delivers an HR needs analysis, HR technology plan, requirements document, market vendor assessment, and potentially a successful selection of vendors to execute the plan.

The HRMS HEADSTART program eliminates the time-consuming and confusing process of researching the 33,000 companies Google returns for HR software vendors. HRTP saves human resources executives time by supplying them with a short list of the vendors who’s product matches their unique needs. This allows the right decision to be made in a fraction of the time and virtually eliminates the risk of choosing the wrong vendor.

With four phases and twenty distinct “actions” the HRMS HEADSTART program can help small and mid size companies reduce the risk involved in trying to completely understand a process they are in only once every 8-10 years. The process starts with the process of developing a project charter and ends with the negotiation of an agreement with the selected vendor(s). Since the process keeps the customers interests in focus throughout the cycle it leads to a better result for the customer.

As a result of completing the HRMS HEADSTART Program, Human Resources Administrators will have:

* created a clear description of what they need and the business problems are associated with those needs
* a comprehensive understanding of what the HRMS marketplace offers and the price points, risks, and strengths inherent in each vendor
* created an HR technology plan for the organization that is attainable, realistic, and within budget
* significantly reduced the risk of acquiring the wrong technology or the wrong vendor for their needs

Using the HRMS HEADSTART program, a Florida-based engineering firm was able to quickly determine the viability of adding to its existing HR technology by using the needs analysis that HRTP conducted for them,” stated Todd Asevedo, Managing Partner of HR Technology Partners. “It would have been nearly impossible for us know what other organizations are doing to eliminate risk and utilize technology to deliver on the HR departments goals,” said Roy Morre, Partner in charge of HR. With HRTP’s help we were able to quickly assess our current situation and contrast that with where we wanted to go and the level of effort it would take to get there”.

The HRMS HEADSTART program was created by Todd Asevedo SPHR, the founder and managing partner of HR Technology Partners. “The partners here have worked for all of the major mid market HR technology companies including ADP, Ceridian, Kronos, Sage Abra, Infinium, Cort Software (nka NuView) and several others so we have firsthand experience with how the vendors work and what the true core competencies of each of the vendors are” said Todd. The program has developed through years of implementing and providing HR, Payroll, Recruiting, and Time & Attendance providing solutions to more than 700 companies between 150-2500 employees.

A top ten Employer Benefits company uses HRTP and the HRMS HEADSTART package to help its customers make sense of a confusing marketplace and compete for scarce budget resources for the HR department.

One thing we hear from our clients over and over is that working with team at HRTP and the new HRMS HEADSTART program is like having a strategic HRIS consultant in-house for the project that will help as much or as little as needed.”, said Mike Toolan, Alliance Manager for HRTP.
