When deciding to buy HRS database systems there are any factors that should be thought through before making the choice. It is important to keep in mind the customer of the data, the process, and the decisions that will be made. (Savannah, M. J. , Thee, M. , & Johnson, R. D. (2012). Two types of these commercial HRS systems are Bamboo HRS and slims. There are many advantages and disadvantages of the two. Bamboo HRS software is versatile and allows users the ability to track what is needed and able to organize data to ones needs.
The software multiuse access performs reliably so the user can define what people can see what information. The software is user friendly, great staff support (customer service), constant improvements, ease of use; cost affordable, flexibility of reports and the software has data security compliant with sensitive data. Its disadvantage is Bamboo cannot be hosed on a company’s own server. Bamboo is what is called a dashboard and they cannot be customized by adding modules, and some menus cannot be customized. Some payroll services it does not sync to and the software has limited functionality.
SIMS is about talent that businesses are drawn to for the intuitive talent, acquisition and on boarding solutions, assisting companies with hiring those best fit for the position. The great advantage is the branded career portal which allows applicants to seamlessly apply and enter the company’s applicant tracking system and when position(s) open in the company the company itself can report on employee applications seeing whether or not they most fit person for the position(s) already works for the organization which is a big plus financially.
Other advantages of this software in the branded career portal is posting jobs re easy and employees can manage their personal information like resumes, contact information and certifications and licenses. SIMS has a social media distribution access to over 300 social media outlets, career site search engine optimization and as mentioned above a job board posting, allowing HRS professionals and recruiters to reach more qualified candidates.
Also, the SIMS the system is easy to use, it has good functionality, the product quality and customer service is a plus the cost is not cheap, but companies want the quick time and the smoothness of the function so they pay the price. As it is known no matter how good something is it also has disadvantages and with the CUMIN small businesses will find this database can be problematic leaving the IT issues to the employees due to the company not large enough to have an IT specialist.
Other disadvantages human error when loading information, the cost to update the system, the applications either malfunction and depending on the business can have insufficient applications to support human resources specialists’ functions. The greatest disadvantage is online security, and because of this users just take great measures to make sure that when processing personal information they process it with true attention to detail. With all this said, both systems are good in their own functionality of what a business is looking for and for the type of work being processed.
It is important to do the research and ask questions before opting to settle with any HRS these systems are not cheap and once the system is in place it will be very unfortunate to work on a system not conducive to the work being processed. Last but not least security is very important and working database that has not security assure is risky and costly. Software As A Service (AAAS) has many advantages for using this service for Human Resource starting with the security. Security is always number one on the list.
The provider manages access to the application, including security, availability, and performance (HTTPS://whosesoever. Com/AAAS). The efficiencies gained from using a AAAS for its HRS needs, and much inefficiency from maintaining an MS Access-based database application is, to access the database calls for only an internet connection, and “A good way to understand the AAAS del is by thinking of a bank, which protects the privacy of each customer while providing service that is reliable and secure?on a massive scale.
A bank’s customers all use the same financial systems and technology without worrying about anyone accessing their personal information without authorization” (HTTPS://www. Salesrooms. Com/AAAS/). Programs offered through AAAS are affordable to implement and manage compared to the traditional software. Using the AAAS does not require buying equipment to house the software, no license with PC cost and flexible when changes are made with company to change the fields and formats without disturbing the entire database (Reagan, 2002).
Combining products from multiple vendors if designed and implemented correctly can be a true burden and stress reducer. If not it can cause a major headache for the organization if it violates existing law and regulations (Savannah, 2012). When combing products from multiple vendors the risks in software compatibility is very important for the fact that not all software codes are compatible and this can cause a major compromising of the data due to glitches and other issues.
An HRS database has to be managed properly and taken seriously if not the HRS processing the entire HRS processing is at risk of becoming affected and storing data properly will make the job all the more advantageous to the workers. The data must be entered properly, genuinely and must continually have periodic quality checks and performing quality checks will partly assist to be sure there has been duplicated information input, no security breaches in information input. Improperly adding or updating information can put a hindrance on a company’s trust and loyalty to people who expect their information to be secure ND guarded with care.
