HR Technology Procurement
Frequent Asked Questions
What technology areas do you cover with the HR Technology Matchmaker?
We cover the full HR software and services marketplace. As a Technology Matchmaker, Viewpoint Analysis simply connects customers with a need, to those HR software vendors or HR service providers that can provide the solution to the need. Our job is to understand what the HR team really needs, and then bring the right vendors to the table to be able to offer suitable solutions.
As such, we provide HR solutions for areas such as - HRIS, Time and Attendance. Talent Management, Payroll, Succession Planning, Performance, Recruitment, and many many more.
How can Viewpoint Analysis help us with our HR procurement?
The HR Technology Matchmaker is designed to help HR teams to find and/or select HR software and HR services. Our solutions can help the HR team to find new innovative HR systems and introduce HR technology vendors that can help with particular issues. Our job is to understand the marketplace - so that when our customer needs those new technology ideas, we can quickly bring the right technology vendors to the table.
If our clients know what they need, we run HR market assessments (our Rapid RFI) and HR RFPs (through our Rapid RFP service) to quickly find the right HR technology to meet their needs.
Do you only work with certain HR software vendors?
No, we are not tied to any HR software vendor and do not receive any compensation for introducing our clients to them or bringing them into an HR selection process. We only work on behalf of our clients. Our service is built to help HR teams to find and select new HR technology and therefore we will go to whichever vendor can offer the right service to our client. Furthermore, we only act as a HR matchmaker - meaning that we bring the different vendor options, but ultimately it is the HR team and HR leadership that make the vendor selection.
How long does a HR Vendor Selection Process take to complete?
We strongly believe that a HR software selection process should be quick and easy - both for the HR team and also for the HR software vendor and HR systems integrator (if applicable). There is a business requirement that is driving the selection process, and we want to make sure that our clients get on to implementing the HR software or HR services rather than spending weeks and months on the HR selection. Our Rapid RFI and Rapid RFP are both designed to quickly find and then select the right HR vendor for the customer - we expect the process to be completed in a few weeks (an average of 6 to 7 if we go from a standing start).
Can you provide a list of different HR vendors that may be worth our initial consideration?
We compile our own HR Technology Guide (or HR software guide) for customers to understand the different technologies that are available in the marketplace. Our customers are usually internally focused and looking at the running of the HR department. As such, they rarely have an opportunity to look at the HR software arena to understand the options that are available. Our HR Technology Longlist is a HR technology guide for all areas - from HRIS to Talent Management and from Learning and Development to Recruitment. Further details can be found above.
Can you run a HR RFP process?
Yes we can run a HR RFP but our HR vendor selection process is not an old-school HR RFP process, it is super-quick and super easy to run. We want the process to be simple for the HR team and simple for the HR vendors. We want to drive an HR software selection decision in the quickest possible time - whilst getting the right solution. We also want to build a partnership between the HR vendor and the HR team. So yes, our Rapid RFP and HR Vendor Selection might be what you need to make your HR vendor selection.
