If you need help, give the following features a try...

We already use a different HR software, is switching easy?

What happens if I want to cancel?

Once you've reached the end of your contract terms, you can get in touch with us to cancel the service.

Do I get my information back if I cancel?

Change can be difficult, but that's why we're here. We can provide training if required and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the software. Ultra HR is extremely intuitive and simple to use, but we understand that sometimes people like a bit of extra support.

5 ways HR software can improve your business success

Are your HR processes taking up too much time? Is your employee data scattered across spreadsheets? Is your HR team drowning in admin? Then HR software may be the answer.


What is Human Resources Software?

HR software is a one-stop-shop for storing all employee information. An online HR management system (HRMS) combines multiple HR functions to provide a streamlined and automated process. But it can deliver so much more to a business - giving you a competitive edge. Here are 5 ways HR software can enhance your business.

  1. Save yourself a lot of time

    We all know time is money - and HR software can save you both. Through automation, the time taken to complete HR transactions is significantly reduced. Good news for the HR team, but also for your employees who get a quicker and more efficient service.

    Better still, with a self-service system, people can manage their own information. They can update their personal details, record absences, submit expenses and update achievements. That is even more time saved for the HR department. Plus, it also means fewer errors and more up to date information.

    Self-service also lets staff stay in control of their data, increasing engagement through greater transparency, trust, and autonomy. What is not to like?

    Automated processes and self-service save significant time for line managers too. They can access their team information to make immediate and informed decisions. Our Ultra HR Time & Attendance system empowers managers to take control of staff holidays, absences and working time to increase productivity and performance. There is even an “Auto-Approve” feature for holiday requests that meet a pre-set criteria, which saves even more time!

    So free up line managers' time and let them focus on what they do best to drive your business forward.

  2. Reduced staff costs and increase engagement

    Research by Hay Group Management Consultancy estimates that disengaged employees cost the UK economy £340 billion every year in lost training and recruitment costs, sick days, productivity, creativity and innovation. How much is it costing your business?

    HR management systems help to keep your staff engaged and performing at their best. On boarding checklists engage your new staff right from day one, reducing turnover and speeding up the time it takes for them to become productive. And the Ultra HR Employee Benefits and Wellbeing feature in the Employee Wellbeing Module keeps your employees up to date with staff benefits and social events across the company. Bingo!

    In the UK, the average employee takes 5.8 sick days per year, even more if they feel disengaged. That means financial costs, loss of productivity and more work for the rest of the team. Bad news! The Ultra HR Time & Attendance system helps you to manage sickness absence and reduce costs through easy reporting and an automated return to work process. By flagging patterns in employee sickness, the HR department can quickly look to engage with employees and offer support if required.

    A growing trend in performance management is to move away from the traditional annual appraisal, and focus on regular, informal conversations. Frequent check-ins allow for performance feedback and upcoming goals to be updated immediately. Through the Ultra HR performance feature, you can make notes that capture feedback on performance and progress towards goals throughout the year, taking the load off your preparation for that anticipated annual appraisal. Your staff can also view a full history of their reviews and goals to keep fully engaged with their progress.

  3. Enhance your decision making

    The Chartered Institute of Personnel & Develop (CIPD) report that too few organisations use HR data to help them make decisions about how they invest, manage, and develop their people to deliver their business strategy. You want to make sure that every hard-earned pound gets spent on the right interventions to further your business success and improve employee wellbeing. And that’s where HR software comes into its own.

    Working from many spreadsheets can make reporting inefficient and inaccurate. This means slow decision making and worse still, inaccurate decisions.

    HR software not only stores your people data in one place but allows for easy-to-use comprehensive reporting and analysis. The Ultra HR intuitive reporting tool is easy to use so you do not have to be a data guru to get the information you need.

    Accurate data-driven insights mean you can understand the trends within your business to predict future needs. You can develop improvements and interventions to enhance both HR and drive business performance. Finally, you have a crystal ball to see into the future, ensuring your success.

    It is your employees who feel the impact of the decisions you make. Better decisions make for fair, informed and meaningful outcomes - enhancing your employee experience and increasing employee engagement. Remember that £340 billion?

  5. Improve compliance and reduce risk

    Ok, so compliance is boring, but necessary - getting it wrong can be costly. HR software takes away the hassle and keeps your business safe.

    Cloud-based HR software means greater IT security and safer storage of sensitive employee information. You can store and manage information much more effectively, making your responsibilities under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) much easier to manage. That is one less worry.

    With centrally stored training records, meeting regulatory requirements for your industry is covered. Then easy in-built reporting and automatic alerts ensure you remain compliant and up to date.

    The Communications & Documents feature within Ultra HR lets you send high priority information to all employees. Then you can track that important communications have been received, gain important sign off that employees have read and understood key changes such as policy updates. Our handy reporting tool also lets you see who still needs a prompt to read their messages.
