COA Solutions’ ClearView for HCM determines the true cost of an organisation’s people

COA Solutions, an Advanced Computer Software plc company, today announces the launch of its ClearView for HCM budgeting and forecasting solution. Specifically aimed at human resource and payroll managers, ClearView for HCM enables the true value of an organisation’s people to be determined and analysed.

At a time when UK businesses, especially public sector organisations, are taking a serious look at all costs; it is vital for businesses to accurately analyse their people costs and determine where cost efficiencies can be made.

ClearView for HCM is the first budgeting and planning solution of its kind on the market. Designed for use by human resource (HR) and payroll managers, it enables the true value of an organisation’s people costs, from recruitment fees through to salaries, bonuses and training costs, to be determined.

ClearView for HCM, which integrates into all COA Solutions human capital management (HCM) systems, extracts real-time data from the HCM system and displays it in a user-friendly graphical format. This data can be analysed and, using the system’s modelling functionality, the impact of ‘what if’ scenarios can be determined to aid decision making. For example, using ClearView for HCM, businesses can model the relative cost implications of a 10 per cent reduction in headcount, or a 12 month salary freeze combined with performance bonuses for key people to ensure retention of talent within the business.

Mark Thompson, Managing Director of COA Solutions says, “Most organisations are aware of the need for effective budgeting and forecasting but rarely apply this to people costs, which is often their biggest expense. Knowing the true current and forecasted financial value of an organisation’s people is key when businesses need to reduce costs and are considering making redundancies.”
