Ground breaking new HR legal compliance software and helpline unveiled

16 February 2015

Two businesses have joined forces and developed an innovative software solution to help HR managers, and those with line management responsibility, to manage human resources more efficiently and to mitigate employment law risks.

Willans LLP solicitors and HR software specialists Cloudtamers spotted a gap in the market and their market leading HR management system and legal compliance module was born.

Cloudtamers Ltd has been working with ERP, HR and payroll solutions since 1991 and helps organisations keep track of their most valuable assets: customers, employees and finance. In 2013, they developed HR management software which covers the entire employment lifecycle, from recruitment, through retention and reward to release. This powerful cloud-based system can assist businesses globally* – and it is all contained within one system.

The ground breaking new element, HR Legal Toolkit, integrates with Cloudtamers HR software and creates a seamless system to guide users through approved HR processes – from recruiting to performance issues and dismissal – thereby controlling spend and reducing the likelihood of litigation.

Nick Eden, chief executive officer of Cloudtamers, explained that the type of organisation that would benefit most from this comprehensive HR system is one with 100 or more employees (including seasonal staff and contractors), particularly if it has offices spread across multiple locations or multi-jurisdictions. He said:

“Good HR management saves companies both time and money. Poor HR management is costly – it’s not just inefficient but it can lead to discord, disengagement and ultimately expensive tribunals. Cloudtamers and Willans can help businesses maximise the benefits of good HR management and minimise the risk and cost of getting it wrong.”

Matthew Clayton, head of Willans’ employment team, said:

“Businesses need not worry about keeping their policies and processes legally compliant as this is all part of the HR Legal Toolkit service, which contains up-to-date HR process templates and a document library, designed and managed by Willans – all within a comprehensive HR management system. HR managers, or people with line management responsibilities, also benefit from a legal helpline as Willans’ qualified employment lawyers are only a phone call away.”

Both businesses will be exhibiting on 13 and 14 May 2015 at The Gloucestershire Business Show at Cheltenham Racecourse.
