Payroll Software Systems

With Human Resources and payroll software budgets under the microscope and the global economy exhibiting signs of schizophrenic improvement, many HR and payroll managers are laser-focused on keeping HR and payroll software costs down while at the same time attempting to increase tactical and strategic capabilities. These mounting and often times conflicting goals demonstrate that cost savings are difficult for vendors and practitioners alike. Unfortunately, many payroll system vendors and pundits lay equal claims to the ideas that that their respective HR and payroll software deployment options have an absolute lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for your organization. In reality, some do and some do not.

Whether it's hosted payroll software, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) or on-premise, an insatiable amount of debate revolves around which HR software deployment option you pay more for or less for in the end. The truth is that these talking heads wind up skirting some of the most important TCO elements, and regrettably cast even more confusion on the issue.

Mobile CRM

With mobile Customer Relationship Management software solutions, information no longer has to wait until staff return to the office. Anytime and anywhere access makes information available and actionable when and where needed. CRM activities can be accomplished in real-time, business process cycles are reduced and customers get served more quickly. But despite the increasing releases of new mobile and tablet devices, the omni-presence of wireless service and the pace of mobile products released from CRM software suppliers, this part of the CRM software industry remains in its infancy in several ways.

And Even More CRM Mobility

The mobile CRM market is growing at an increased pace. Mobile CRM software solutions are merging with social CRM (sCRM) solutions to increase value and keep employees empowered in real-time and engaged with prospects and customers. But for mobile CRM to truly deliver on its opportunity, customer and product information must be accessible across mobile devices, in real-time, and easily extracted and integrated with CRM software systems.

ABI Research reports that 240 million enterprise business customers will use cloud computing services from their mobile devices by 2015—the same year the enterprise mobile cloud computing market is expected to hit $5.2 billion revenues, driven in large part by the expansion of cloud-based IT and CRM services and more business customers using more cellular connected devices, particularly tablets.
