Ceridian UK, one of the UK's leading HR and payroll providers, has signed a partnership agreement with activ8 to offer an HR analytics module, as part of the latest HRevolution SaaS solution.

David Woodward, chief product and innovation officer, at Ceridian UK said:

HRevolution Analytics, a new module available through our HRevolution SaaS solution, is truly unique in being the first business intelligence tool designed for the very specific requirements of HR reporting and analysis. Its intuitive design enables HR professionals to access and interrogate underlying trends quickly and easily. Also, by using the easy to use designer, the user can build new charts without the traditional need for support from IT staff.

The module comes pre-built with up to 150 high impact HR charts, reports and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that are meaningful and relevant to HR and senior management. Information is presented in over 20 different types of graphical charts and table formats. One or more reports can be grouped together and presented on a dashboard with each user able to have many different dashboards.

There is also the option of providing access beyond the HR community, allowing senior and even line managers to view dashboards, reports and KPIs relevant to their specific areas of responsibility. An easy-to-use self-service report designer allows rapid creation of ad-hoc and customised reports and drill downs allow underlying data and supporting measurements to be investigated.

David Woodward continued:

By increasing the analytic and diagnostic capabilities of the HR team, the Analytics module will transform the way HR serves and adds value to the business. The insights and intelligence it provides empowers HR to make more effective human capital decisions that increase the productivity and performance of the business. Interestingly, PwC's view is that CEOs need to rethink the future of the HR function - many teams are failing to deliver the strategic thinking needed to drive growth - and that HR technology will continue to be the key enabler in developing innovative ways to support and solve critical business challenges. HRevolution Analytics does just that. It enables HR teams to understand the drivers most strongly impacting business performance and quantifiably assess which HR initiatives are most effective at supporting business strategy. In short, it enables the full potential of the people-related data collected on a day-to-day basis to be fully unleashed for the benefit of HR and the wider business.
