All-in-One or Best of Breed? - The Ultimate Question Keeping Business Owners Up at Night

Jul 16, 2019 11:45:00 AM

Most companies, especially in the small-to-midsize range, are opting for cloud-based HR systems instead of on-premise HR software. HR in the cloud is more affordable and requires less maintenance.

Smaller and mid-sized businesses are seizing the opportunity to move to cloud-based software so they can avoid purchasing on-site software/hardware and having to maintain it. Buying into the cloud also enables Small-Medium Businesses (SMBs) to compete more effectively with their larger enterprise counterparts. This is especially true when a Service as a Software (SaaS) company like Proliant can also offer IT and HR expertise.

Cloud HR tools also reach beyond the boundaries of the corporate employee workforce and into the management of contractors and other outside work resources. This reach is a critical need for companies who rely on those temp and contract employees to augment their core workforce.

HR tools must keep pace with the market by innovating new capabilities and HR software benefits. There are two types of cloud-based HCM providers:

The first is an All-in-One solution. These types of vendors claim that their solution fits perfectly for all businesses regardless of industry. These claims are very tough to believe given the diversity and uniqueness of every business today.

The second type of HCM provider is referred to as a "Best-of-Breed" and continually customizes and alters the solution to fit each business in their unique industry. Proliant fundamentally believes in the best-of-breed philosophy.

We partner and integrate with 100's of HR technology and solution providers to map our portfolio to individual industry requirements.

For example, in the restaurant vertical, Proliant selected and integrated with the most prominent players in the space including ClearCompany ATS for applicant tracking, BSwift for benefits, and Novatime for time and labor and Toast POS in the restaurant industry.  The unique requirements for restaurants led us down that path. 

Best-of-Breed solutions provide more flexibility and are more cost-effective.  Why pay for features you will never use? 


Business owners - you can get some rest now.  😀 🤗😴
