It’s important that a HR solution stands up to the demands that 900 employees thrusts upon it. That’s exactly what Cascade’s cloud based HR software offered CPM Ireland.
“The functionality of Cascade’s product appeared far more advanced than the other suppliers during demonstrations. The software also allowed a high level of customisation to be done in house without the need for costly development work in future.”
When Cascade’s core HR, training and recruitment modules were rolled out, it revolutionised the team’s approach to managing staff. Gone were the days of wondering whether or not data existed in vast paper archives, before manually inputting information into basic spreadsheets. Now CPM held rich information about every employee, and this data was much more accessible. The HR team also amassed a more comprehensive grasp of HR processes and activities, allowing value-adding reports to be generated quickly, and in only a few clicks.
Yet the true benefits of Cascade were still not being fully realised. CPM had opted to host the software on the company’s own servers – a popular installation route for many Cascade clients. However the complex infrastructure for this particular organisation meant that users had to first log-in to CPM’s servers – located in the UK – before they could access Cascade. If working remotely, quick and simple tasks could become somewhat laborious. Worse still, if employees were working in the field using client computers, they could not use Cascade whatsoever because they had no way of entering the CPM network.
In only a six week period, CPM liaised with Cascade regarding the feasibility of opting to outsource the hosting of the software with Cascade Cloud. They worked collaboratively with the software experts to address any potential apprehensions, finalised costs, planned and executed the project, and then transferred across to Cascade’s hosted solution.
The data migration phase was carefully executed and completed ahead of schedule, minimising the downtime experienced by CPM’s HR team.
CPM has not been disappointed with the results since moving into the cloud. Indeed, the benefits have been numerous:
