So, are you also in a race of purchasing tools that make your HR job quick and easy? Oh! it's a big yes. Great, such tools really make our job easy. But do you know nearly 8 out of 10 HR professionals regretted their software purchases? According to a report, only 24 percent of HR managers and employers feel that their hiring software is having a positive and the productive effect on their business.
I know the facts are surprising, but it is true. Most of the software fails to fulfill the needs of the recruiters. Who is faulty here, software or you? Most of us believe that it is software but some people like me believe it's all our fault. We are the one who purchases such tools and software. So, it is wrong to blame the software.
But the question is what are the factors and qualities that we need look while going for an HR tool? Don't worry friend, that is why I am mentioning some of the questions that we need to ask as a smart customer before purchasing an HR recruitment tool.
Question #1: Is it support every kind of system?
This is an important question. Today, we have multiple options and so have multiple types of systems. Not all the software or tools support all of them. Therefore, make sure to have a software which supports all types of systems. The solution must be integrated with every system.
Question #2: Is it scalable?
Everything is going online today. Cloud technology is gaining popularity, businesses are moving their data into the cloud as it can be accessed from anywhere. Therefore, it is must that the solution is scalable in nature and it should integrate with the cloud technology.
Question #3: Is it easy to handle?
Simplicity always wins the race. Perhaps this is the main reason behind the success of Nokia (a giant phone manufacturer). People love simple things. Always check the demo of the software you are going to purchase. Check whether it is easy to use or not and also check its compatibility.
Take care of the three questions mentioned above and I am sure you will be on the list of that 2 people who have no complaints regarding their HR tool or solution.
