SD Worx launches HRevolution

16 January 2008

New flexible on-demand HR system offers a break from the traditional software model, with a single subscription fee and no user licenses.

SD Worx, one of the largest providers of human resource services in the world, has launched HRevolution, a new web-based, on-demand flexible HR system offering mid-market clients the transformational functionality of an ERP through a simple subscription-based service with no user licence fees.

David Woodward, former Chief Product Officer at SD Worx, said:

We believe there are two core components to successful HR. First, you need to have the right tools and processes to deliver world-class employee service across the basics. Second, you need to have the insight and ambition to innovate in critical areas such as attraction, retention and performance that creates competitive advantage. HRevolution is the next generation solution for managing people and is unique in combining the latest web-based technology with world-class services to enable mid-market companies to excel in both these key areas. This allows HR teams to truly optimise the capability and potential of their people and to develop more flexible, future-facing organisations. 

HRevolution has been designed to flex with organisational needs. Customers can contract for one or more of the human capital modules available according to their precise requirements. The scalability of the solution allows it to grow with the organisation. To help companies attract talent, there is an online recruitment module supported by an employer brand consultancy. To assist customers in retaining talent, there are learning and development, flexible benefits and performance management modules, backed by employee assistance programmes. To allow companies to value their talent, HRevolution provides superior management intelligence on people initiatives. Transactional processes, such as payroll, can be outsourced as managed services according to client needs.

With no user licences or forced upgrades, HRevolution breaks the traditional HR Software model. Customers pay just one subscription fee to cover multiple users for unlimited access. SD Worx also maintains and upgrades the underlying technology so customers do not have to rely on an in-house IT department. Furthermore, clients always benefit from the latest version of HRevolution, which is not only fully supported but also robustly secure and backed-up.

HRevolution is powered by intuitive and intelligent automation and pre-defined integral workflow based on best HR practice. Basic transactional processes via central HR are conducted more accurately, rapidly, efficiently and at lower cost. HRevolution is easily configurable and customised to a client's own branded look and feel. The user-friendly design encourages and improves the individual user experience and allows new-users to log-on immediately on assignment. The in-built broadcast facility improves and lowers the cost of employee communication.

For mid-market clients, HRevolution enables the HR function to do the basics better - more accurately, efficiently and at lower cost - and to provide the strategic direction which will add demonstrable added value to the bottom line.
