    Another Small Business HRIS - Human Services HQ

    After my post on HRIS for the small business ran last week, I thought I might be

    contacted by a vendor or two who I omitted, as the market for these solutions is so crowded.  Sure enough I did receive a few comments, and I wanted to highlight one of the vendors, Human Services HQ.

    Human Services HQ is positioned as an online HR database that provides easy access to your employee records, relieves paperwork headaches, and reduces employee management costs for small businesses. There are three main functions, employee record keeping, tracking of employee training, and document storage for things like manuals, handbooks, and forms.  

    The service is deployed in the SaaS mode, and is priced on a monthly basis ranging from $24/mo for up to 15 employees, to $399/mo for up to 900 employees, but the solution seems to be most applicable to very small organizations, say less than 100 employees. All paid plans include a 30-day free trial.

    Human Services HQ might be a good option for a very small business that wants to stop tracking employee data on spreadsheets or on PC-based databases, and also wants some flexibility to store important HR documents in the same tool.

    Thanks to Human Services HQ for reaching out and making me aware of your solution.

    Steve, thanks for the press - much appreciated. Just wanted to clarify a few things...

    I just reviewed our stats, and approx 60% of our customers have 100 employees - most with well over 200. Maybe our sweet spot is between 200 and 900 employees, companies not ready to pay for pricey ERP services - but with real needs to be more efficient and cut costs. The economy is definitely encouraging Human Resources to look in our direction.

    One customer with 400+ employees just dropped ADP's HRB to use us - we save them around 4k a month. But I agree that companies with huge budgets to pay for the legacy systems may not be the right fit, as we don't do payroll. However, one of the beautiful things about our Human Services HQ and the SaaS model is the continual development and improvement...we just keep getting better - and we're fast. Thanks again for the mention and the resources you provide.

    Best of Success,

    Ben, thanks for the comment, and for correcting my assumptions about the 'sweet spot' for your offering. It is great that a vendor rep such as yourself shares that kind of information, and it can really help prospective clients and analysts. Best of luck in the future.

    I just found your article regarding HRIS for the small business. This is a little late, but statistically you missed a number of HRIS products (as you fairly indicated). According to statistics posted on a site such as CompareHRIS, and product knowledge acquired from 22 years in the industry, you definitely missed People-Trak. They have more installations in this segment than Spectrum and have been around for over 16 years. In case you missed them, they have been on page 1 of the SHRM Magazine in living color for about 8 years running.

    Thanks for the comments, Jim. As you note, and I said in the original post, it is not really possible to cover all the relevant vendors in a forum like this blog. Compare HRIS or even Capterra can do a much better job at that. My post was really in response to several questions I had received from folks looking for some guidance, and I tried to offer a starting point. Thanks again and I appreciate the input.

    This is a good solution because it is online based and would serve as a back-up for important employee records. However, I don't know how comfortable I would feel leaving my entire employee records at the mercy of an online system it just seems a little risky to me. Does the advertising for this business solution address this issue?

    I feel we have a fairly comprehensive list now on CompareHRIS.com. We now list 20 of the industry's leading HRIS and HRMS software systems. We've recently added, ADP, Ceridian, Kronos, ECI and 2interact. I am certain that would some would say we have products missing from our list as well but we continue to add vendors to our site and our HRIS selection tool.
