If it hasn’t been apparent over these last few weeks of posting, the benefits of combining your ERP sales with an HCM solution include, raising your profit potential and becoming a technology expert among your clientele. As that information has already been planted into your brains numerous times found here and here. We’d like to share one more important reason why matching your ERP sales with an HCM solution could be a boon for you and your bottom line. Offering a single vendor for HCM and payroll needs with your ERP solutions to your end-users could be a home run.
4 Reasons why a single vendor solution makes sense
Typically, as a company ages, their HCM software they bought and implemented will begin to need upgrades as time passes as well. The company will then look to “upgrade” their aging system by integrating additional software solutions to patch up the problem areas instead of investing in a single, cohesive solution. As this is a viable option for some, it’s not the most efficient. By adding more and more solutions to patch these problem areas, disadvantages such as data leaks, errors and double entry problems can occur when taking this approach with your declining software.
If you want to avoid those potential disadvantages, investing in a single vendor solution will be the best route to go. Here are the reasons why a single vendor HCM solution would be an enticing product to include in your toolbox with your ERP offerings.
1. Reducing costs for your end-users
A lot of decision-makers believe that overhauling their current system entirely would be just too expensive to do. So by going the route of implementing other vendors and their products to “patch up” the problem areas, the company will save time and money doing so. What they don’t realize is that a single vendor may, in fact, save them a lot of money. Most vendors offer bundle deals with their offerings that can be much more cost-effective than shopping for multiple vendors for various single solutions. Also, a company will have more negotiating power dealing with only one vendor compared to haggling with many.
2. Essential upgrades for end-users’ software is non-conflicting
What’s that saying about “Too many cooks in the kitchen?”
It’s simple. If you have multiple vendors demanding upgrades to their modules, it’s only a matter of time before they will begin to conflict with one another. If you have upgrade needs that may conflict with another vendor’s module, slowdowns and incompatibilities could become reality for those who utilize more than one vendor for their software needs. Having a single vendor will prevent any conflicting upgrades.
3. Efficiency will rise in other aspects of your end-users’ job
By having a single vendor solution, you will have only one point of contact if any issues or problems arise. Having multiple vendors will require you to have multiple contacts, emails, phone numbers, etc. A lot of lost time can be attributed to just figuring out who you have to contact when something with your software goes awry.
As mentioned earlier, a single vendor can eliminate pesky, time-consuming double data entry. This can hasten job functions such as:
- Benefits enrollment
- Deduction calculations
- Other HCM and payroll capabilities
4. Simplifying the reporting process for end-users
Although you may have multiple integrations with other systems to your HCM solution, they may not be closely connected enough to provide you with the reporting a company may need to make better business decisions. With a single vendor solution, the need for data unification is eliminated which speeds up reporting capabilities while making it feasible to obtain data in real-time.
