Choosing a new payroll and/or HR system can be a very daunting prospect for most people and organisations. Software providers will highlight their best features and take great pride in showing you how good they are and how they use the most up to date and advanced technology.
There is a cycle that you should go through in any procurement and it is up to you to establish what the correct cycle is for you. First and foremost you must make it clear to potential suppliers how you intend to progress matters.
When undertaking an evaluation there are a number of aspects you need to examine and it is good to list them prior to starting the evaluation process. This ensures that they are not overlooked and that the buying process does not become sales-person led. A questionnaire, prepared before the start, is often a good idea. Where hardware and software are being proposed, relevant questions must be asked about each supplier.
The process should be documented fully examining each area specifically to ensure you have the right customer/supplier fit.
