Why Does My HR Software Not Succeed?

HR today has been greatly disrupted by technology. Today, high-tech software replace humans in terms of administrative HR tasks, leaving us to take care of the strategic aspect of HR.

With the plethora of features and offerings that third-party HR software vendors offer in the market today, organisations are no doubt spoiled for choice. At the same time, organisations will certainly benefit with implementing human resources (HR) software within their HR processes.

Yet with the slew of fancy features and automation that HR software promises to deliver, some organisations find that their software fail to deliver on their part. And here are some of the reasons why:

Poor utilisation

While organisations invest thousands of dollars into their software, is it really benefiting the HR department? Are the features and software in line with the business needs? Most of time, organisations jump into investing in the first HR software that seems “cool”, only to find out later that it is not aligned with the business needs. This results in the software not being utilised to its full capacity.

Poor integration

Besides helping organisations to automate administrative HR tasks, the software can also be utilised to generate insightful analytics for strategic HR decisions. However, many organisations lack the understanding to link data from HR software to HR strategies.

Given the numerous features that the software vendors offer today, it makes it extremely difficult for organisations to sieve out the appropriate functions and features that they require. Perhaps to narrow down, organisations should focus on these three features to ensure that their software succeeds.


The software should be user-friendly and easily accessible on numerous devices such that most functions are intuitive and does not require much training. At the same time, it should be easy for employees to extract and derive insights from the software.


The last thing that HR needs to struggle with is ensuring that the  software is compatible with other systems. Ideally, the software should be able to integrate seamlessly with other existing software within the organisation so as to minimise any technical difficulties even more the software is being implemented.


Finally, a good human resources (HR) software should minimally cover the key HR functions such as payroll, salary disbursement and accounting. At the same time, these key functions should be available on a single platform instead of users having to log in multiple times to access different functions.
