I spend a lot of time preaching about the importance of Payroll and HR Software in the business world. After all, most businesses would certainly benefit from a seamless connection between their payroll, time and attendance, and hr software. However, the total cost of it all is simply too much to expect for many businesses, so it becomes necessary to pick and choose the features you best feel would benefit you. That being said, there is often a difference in opinion between who will benefit most from the software and who makes the final decision.
All too often we come across prospective clients who really want to make the switch to Dominion, but their superiors don’t want to leave their current provider for whatever reason. It’s easy for you to see how the software will improve your daily processes and save time, but convincing those “higher ups” that are only concerned about money is a whole different matter. In this blog, I’m going to break down the best way to approach your boss about taking on a new Payroll or HR Software solution.
Look At the Numbers
Any major change in a business’ daily processes can be stressful, particularly for the people in charge. Because of that, they’re more likely to discourage any change that isn’t absolutely necessary. We’ve all heard the phrase “time is money”, so this is a great stance to take when trying to convince the decision-makers that you have to make the switch. Show them how much time you’ll save with these new processes and they’ll understand how that means more money for your business to spend on what matters. Furthermore, there can be some serious ramifications with errors made in compliance regulations. If you’re manually entering all your data and processing all your paperwork, there is a ton of room for human error. The time you save by having all of this work done in the cloud will be more than worth the cost of an HR software solution. What’s more, you get a team of dedicated compliance and tax experts available at your fingertips!
Hire the Best Candidates
The biggest headache for HR managers is the cost of employee turnover. In addition to the lost productivity, the process of finding, hiring and onboarding new employees is immense. With an Onboarding software and Applicant Tracking System at your disposal, you’ll not only find better candidates much faster but also ensure a smooth onboarding experience for all your new hires. Because ⅓ of new hires leave within the first six months on the job, offering a smooth and effortless onboarding experience is vital for improved retention. Show your boss how a proper Onboarding and Applicant Tracking solution will not only streamline your hiring process but also provide new hires with all the tools they need to succeed within your company. The more time you save reducing your turnover, the more time you have to focus on more important matters.
Let the Pros Do Their Jobs
At the end of the day, the decision-makers in your company understand that when it comes to payroll and HR, things need to be accurate and efficient. If your processes are outdated, your business cannot run on all cylinders and will thus never reach its full potential. Payroll and HR are instrumental in every business, so you should have a team of experts on-hand to ensure you’re ahead of the curve on all of the constantly evolving rules and regulations in the business world. Investing in a cloud-based solution like Dominion’s will not only streamline all of your payroll and HR processes but will also keep you up-to-date on any government regulations that will affect your business. After all, payroll and HR is just a small part of your business, but it’s 100% of ours.
