CCH Guide Provides Roadmap For Making The Right Human Resource Management System Decision

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., July 30, 1999) As companies increasingly look to human resources management to enhance competitiveness and increase productivity, the pressure is on to make the best use of current technology to integrate successfully human resources, payroll and benefits functions in one system, according to CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of human resources and payroll law information. To help companies face the daunting challenge of selecting and implementing the most effective human resources management system, CCH has introduced How to Attain Your HRMS Vision, a step-by-step guide that walks human resource, information technology and payroll professionals through the HRMS planning and decision-making process.

"Designing and implementing a system is one of the biggest human resource financial investments a company will make, and the impact of such a system on the entire organization is significant," said CCH human resources group marketing manager Steve Slater. "How to Attain Your HRMS Vision provides an excellent roadmap for managers to help them make the best possible decisions for their company in this important area."

Clear Guidance, Practical Insights

Authored by Rhonda Carlson, CEO of The Last Word, Inc. and expert consulting editor Michael W. McDonald, CEO of HRMS Synergy, Inc., How to Attain Your HRMS Vision is written in a clear, practical style for anyone who is doing software evaluation including evaluators from payroll, human resources, benefits and information technology. While the book does not make specific vendor or product recommendations, it does help managers make the best possible decision for their companies in those areas.

In addition to detailing the actual steps that need to be followed to select a successful system, How to Attain Your HRMS Vision covers the theoretical framework of the lifecycle of software applications and of the components of the selection process.

Budgeting, defining the selection team, establishing minimum requirements, identifying and then evaluating vendors, negotiating license agreements, assessing total costs and developing and executing an implementation strategy are all clearly explained. Checklists apply the principles discussed and make the entire process easy to understand.

In addition, How to Attain Your HRMS Vision includes important insights and best practices from professionals on the front line of HRMS implementation. Interviews provide added guidance based on the hands-on experience of professionals in such areas as project initiation, external research, project implementation and technical upgrades and maintenance.
