the world’s only technology for dealing with local HR functions and HR compliance across multiple countries, on a single platform

Total Talent Management on a single cloud platform ideal for global companies

LONDON, UK 5th JULY 2012 – Fairsail, the leader in Total Talent Management, today announced the launch of Swiftsure, the world’s only technology for dealing with local HR functions and HR compliance across multiple countries, on a single platform.

Swiftsure combines advanced HR and social performance designed for the reskilling, retaining and reviewing of tomorrow’s workforce. It is the world’s only cloud based, rapid deployment solution, making it ideal for companies spread across multiple countries and those involved in Mergers or Acquisitions.

According to recent research from Bersin & Associates, “Single platform HR solutions that are ready-made for a global workforce will emerge on top in the battle for dominance. Products such as Fairsail’s enable real-time measures of people, processes and performance that allow leadership to steer their organisations in the right direction, and make calculated turns based on an overarching view of the entire organisation.”

Fairsail’s Swiftsure has a familiar and responsive interface which employees who are used to social media such as Twitter and Facebook, now expect and appreciate. Until now, organisations required different systems per country to account for local employment laws, taxation, holidays and IT infrastructure. Swiftsure provides a single cloud-based solution for multiple countries and more employee collaboration with a state-of-the-art Social Business portal.

Developed in Fairsail’s UK Research & Development centre and named after a British warship which saw action in the Battle of the Nile and Trafalgar, Swiftsure will roll out automatically to Fairsail’s global customers. Based on the platform Fairsail’s 10,000 users, from China to Australia and the US have already begun to experience the benefits of this latest release.

Thomas Schilling, Managing Director, TugelaHR said “Cloud adoption within HR is on the increase, companies want to focus on higher workforce productivity and maximising the bottom line potential by focusing on performance, employee development, recruitment and reward programs. As expert consultants it is our job to recommend the best possible solution to our customers who want more from their HR system. Fairsail is leading the way in new approach HR, with rapid deployment, increased user adoption, reduced need for support, seamless upgrades and quick payback periods.”
