  • With the growing workforce, recording, and managing data in excels consumed considerable HR hours and increased complexity.
  • Addressing & resolving employees queries in person resulted in loss of productive hours of the HR department. It also led to increased costs as employees had to travel from various locations to the corporate office to manually log their concern.
  • Time inputs were processed manually on excels and with a usual punching software resulting in erroneous paid days, reconciliation of the same would again require more time and efforts from the HR team.
  • Manual sourcing and selection of candidates via emails took more time than anticipated & hampered quality talent acquisition.


  • With centralized Employee Master, duplicacy of the data is controlled; ensuring accuracy and better visibility to the HR department.
  • Employees’ experience is enhanced with the powerful ESS & Mobile app. Helpdesk elevated overall employee satisfaction level with timely resolution of their queries.
  • The synchronization of the biometric system with the time & attendance module eliminated proxy attendance as well as consistent paid days input thereby saving huge costs to the company.
  • Employee hiring became a piece of pie as almost all the steps involved in the recruitment process became automated resulting in faster decision making and hiring.
