You’ve made the decision to go ahead and use a HR system to make life easier, but what features do you need to be looking out for? There are a variety of systems on offer, each with their own benefits so look at what is out there and ensure the features work for you.

Ease of use

Look for a system that is easy to understand, simple to use and straightforward to navigate. The idea is to save you time so the last thing you need is to be spending hours working out how to use it! HRX has been designed with the user in mind and has a clear and simple dashboard. Everything is easy to access and will save you time searching for documents and files.

Self-Service for Employees

This feature is a must have. Allowing employees access to their own record to change their personal details, book their annual leave, record sickness absence and access documents is invaluable. HRX can be accessed via your laptop or on your phone, making access ease whilst on the move. It takes just two clicks to submit your leave request or register a sickness absence.


The pricing of your new system needs to suit your budget whilst ensuring that it manages your needs. Saving time shuffling leave requests is priceless, but ensure you are also factoring in staff growth and what that might do to the cost. At just £1 per employee per month for HRX, this is easily manageable and ideal for small and medium businesses. At such a low cost, HRX can grow with your business without causing a heavy financial burden.

Instant Information

Having everything you need in one place to help you to manage your employees will be valuable and keep things uncomplicated. This will eliminate the need to paper records and filing cabinets so that you can access everything you need at the click of a button. HRX’s knowledge base provides you with all the information you could need in one place including new starter information, policies, templates and much much more.

Research what the needs of your business are and have your requirement list ready when you delve into the search for the best system for you and your company. Knowing what your needs are will make the quest much simpler.
