It’s accessible, comprehensive and helps to make HR processes consistent and transparent
HR consultancy Deminos has added on-line software solution Cezanne OnDemand to the portfolio of people management services it offers its clients.
Deminos provides HR and employment law support to a diverse group of clients in the SME sector, as well as to larger blue-chip organisations. The business, which employs a team of 25 HR and legal specialists, aims to help its clients manage their people effectively and stay on the right side of employment law.
Deminos had previously been offering another HR software system as part of its service but found that the product had limited functionality and was time-consuming and difficult to use. Partner Tony Edge came across Cezanne OnDemand and realised it could strengthen the services provided by Deminos, as it had much greater potential to help clients streamline administration and manage their people processes more efficiently. “It’s accessible, comprehensive and helps to make HR processes consistent and transparent,” he said. “When used alongside the HR support we provide, it’s a bit like having your own HR administrator on site, without the additional cost of employing someone.”
The first Deminos client has just signed up to Cezanne OnDemand and there has already been interest from several others. “Everyone who has seen it likes it,” says Tony. “It looks very professional, is easy to use and people can immediately see how it will add value.”
The self-service element of Cezanne OnDemand is also proving appealing to clients. “People like the idea that their employees can update personal information and manage their own holiday entitlement – they can see straight away that it is going to save them a significant amount of time.” says Tony.
Deminos believes that availability of modules covering areas like absence and performance management may also nudge people to take a more professional approach to the way they manage people and make use of data.
“Many small businesses don’t immediately see the benefits of taking a co-ordinated approach to areas like performance management, but the fact that they can manage the process easily via Cezanne OnDemand may encourage them to think again,” says Tony.
Next step is for Deminos to use Cezanne OnDemand internally to streamline management of its own people and to deepen their knowledge of the system so they can better support clients who are using it.
About Cezanne HR
Headquartered in the UK, with an office in Italy and partners supporting customers worldwide, Cezanne HR provides SMEs with a powerful yet quick to implement online HR software solution to help streamline people, absence and performance management, improve employee collaboration, and gather better HR intelligence to support planning and decision making.
The system is the first HR software solution to be offered on a pay-as-you-go basis, with monthly fees being adjusted up – or down – to reflect the average number of employees being managed each month. It is also the first to include, at no extra cost, an innovative employee portal that enables HR to easily share company information and documents and includes social features that encourage employees to work together more productively. Pricing is just £2 per employee per month for companies of between 50 and 500 employees for HR and absence management, with performance management costing an extra £1. Special discounts are available to registered charities and not-for-profits.
Cezanne OnDemand is delivered in the Cloud, on a Software-as-a-Service basis, which means it is hosted and delivered online via a secure server, with updates automatically provided to clients as they are released as part of the subscription fee. There’s no need for SME businesses to continually invest in their own hardware or software, or in installing updates. They simply log on via the Internet and have immediate access to the latest version of the system from wherever they are.
First released in June 2011, Cezanne OnDemand already has an impressive customer base of small businesses and mid-sized enterprises, many of whom are well-known brands and innovators in their own markets. Customers that have signed up to use the online HR service in the last few months include Think Jam, Ward Williams, Evolving, Intelliflo, Core Technology Systems, Invitation Digital and Howard Hutton.
