BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, ENGLAND, May 01, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- SaaS (Software as a Service), also sometimes referred to as 'Cloud' computing, is very well suited for the human resources industry sector, as leading supplier Octopus HR perfectly understands.
Utilising the SaaS technology and delivery model, Octopus now has a compelling new suite of HR software solutions, having expanded the award-winning software to now include: HR, Recruitment, Performance, Time, Expenses, and Payroll.
The SaaS model really helps to redefine the provider-to-customer relationship and ensures, rightly so, that the highest levels of customer service are delivered and maintained at all times. The SaaS model essentially means that the customer can stop using and paying for the software and service provided either at any time or at contractually-agreed break points.
So why is the Octopus HR SaaS model so much better than on-premise solutions?
The Octopus system uses your existing Internet connections so you don't need any additional hardware, software or infrastructure, and because it uses the web-based interface that people are familiar with, minimal training is needed.
This model means that Octopus can update and enhance your HR system without ever interrupting its service to you, and ensures that all customers are on the same 'version' as each other, allowing support and training to be much easier and therefore faster and cheaper.
The solution and service is affordable - with the monthly Octopus subscription including all hosting costs, maintenance, support and all your regular upgrades, adding new features and functionality.
The HR solutions are available 24/7 on any device capable of running a standard browser this includes even mobile devices, so, for example, holidays can be requested by employees from work or home, on their PC or mobile device and likewise checked and approved by managers. Another great example is with recruitment, where Octopus Recruit enables you to automatically publish new vacancies on the web allowing applicants to apply and upload their CV details, with their information then being instantly available for managers to review and take action on.
Some of the primary reasons behind Octopus's business success:
The SaaS model has allowed Octopus to maintain very high levels of customer service and quality.
The Octopus business has no on-premises legacy, either technical or financial, to deal with, so has established a significant recurring-revenue stream. The company is enjoying good growth with a yearly average growth of around 75% whilst creating a rapid and delighted customer base.
