Local IT firm introduces software for HR practitioners
Quadrant Alpha Technology Solutions (QAlpha), a homegrown IT solutions provider specializing in customized software, recently debuted its version of the Human Resource Information System (HRIS) — a software package developed to address deficiencies in HR analytics capabilities, data storage, and organization.
QWORK automates the entire HR process from recruitment, employee training, and payroll to performance evaluation programs. Its cloud-based and paperless design ensures accessibility anytime and anywhere via the internet. It can also be customized to suit any company’s needs and adapt to local contexts.
“QWORK offers a comprehensive database of personnel records that is accessible to HR staffs and managers 24/7. It also functions as an online backup for papers, where downloading and uploading of documents, such as employee time records, cheques, and payroll deposits, are made very easy and fast with significantly reduced risk for error,” QAlpha founder and president Ash Co Kehyeng said.
In its 2017 Global Human Capital Trends report, multinational professional services firm Deloitte said that only eight percent of globally surveyed companies have usable HR data, and only nine percent believe they have a good understanding of which specific talent profiles in their organizations can drive performance and business growth.
Although human resource technology is often viewed as a costly investment for business growth, the Deloitte study indicates that HR technology can play a unique role in enabling employees and companies to adapt to the rapidly evolving workforce innovations in the 21st century.
Recognizing this gap, QWORK streamlines the execution of integral business processes, making it convenient, fast, and costefficient for HR teams, and even top-level management. Managers, for instance, can get analytics of employee performances, as well as recruitment, from any location with ease.
QWORK can be used by businesses with only 30 personnel or by larger organizations with thousands of employees. The software answers all HR needs, including recruitment and retention, contracts, performance appraisals, employee benefits, productivity report generation, and even the clients’ Intranet access.
Kehyeng stressed that QAlpha, unlike its counterparts from abroad, understands the local setting and how the software can serve the particular needs of its user in line with the Philippine laws and other business regulations.
“All programs are carefully designed at QAlpha to effectively meet the requirements of the clients, while ensuring that business processes are compliant with the Philippine laws, culture, and business environment,” Kehyeng said.
