Horsham (UK) District Council to save thousands with enterprise HR solution

19 Aug 2019 – Leading enterprise software provider, TechnologyOne today announced that Horsham District Council has recently gone live with its Human Resource software. The implementation marks another milestone for TechnologyOne as it continues to expand its enterprise Software as a Service (SaaS) footprint in the UK.

The software is transforming the way the Council works and over time is expected to save the Council thousands in efficiency savings and will also help ensure compliance with strict data protection regulations.

Robert Laban, Head of Human Resource and Occupational Development, Horsham District Council said the HR software seamlessly integrates with the Council’s existing TechnologyOne Financials software – which forms part of the OneCouncil SaaS solution, developed specifically for Local Government.

“We now have access to powerful enterprise SaaS with fully automated HR capabilities, including advanced self-service features for employees to manage their own personal information, leave and timesheets, at any time on any device,” Laban said.

“Our ability to capture, store and view HR information has improved enormously because everything is integrated, automated and available in real-time online.”

Laban added: “TechnologyOne’s SaaS solution is helping deliver significant process efficiency savings. For example, the use of e-forms has removed a lot of manual processes, allowing us to redirect time and resource into other strategic initiatives.”

“We are witnessing  a  culture change resulting from the implementation of TechnologyOne’s HR software with staff across the Council  taking ownership for their  own data and activities and line managers being able to take more direct responsibility for staffing matters and managing performance. The systems easy to use dashboards make performance data visible early on so that managers can take action proactively.

The Council expects to see further benefits when it implements TechnologyOne’s Recruitment software in the second phase of the implementation.

Anwen Robinson, UK Operating Officer, TechnologyOne said the successful implementation is just the start of what’s to come for Horsham on its SaaS-enabled digital transformation journey.

“We’re excited to be working with Horsham District Council, helping them to fulfil their ambitions and achieve improvements and savings across the organisation,” Robinson said.

“With self-service functionality, our Human Resource software is designed to help HR departments manage the entire employee lifecycle from recruitment and onboarding through to reward and retention.”

Ms Robinson added: “We are seeing many councils recognise the opportunity that fully integrated enterprise SaaS affords, and expect to see more councils follow suit in the next year as we continue to grow our footprint in the UK.”

TechnologyOne’s Human Resource & Payroll software is currently being used by more than 100 local government customers worldwide.
