HRchitect to Present Pre-Conference Workshop at the Spring 2009 ERE Expo

February 24, 2009

 

HRchitect, the leader in HR systems strategic consulting and the premier Human Capital Management (HCM) and Talent Management systems consulting firm, will be conducting a pre-conference workshop at the Spring 2009 ERE Expo in San Diego on “How to Save Your Current Applicant Tracking System and get a Return on Your Investment”.

 

HRchitect has been increasingly asked to share their expertise in HR Systems and Talent Management systems consulting through speaking engagements at user and industry conferences as well as contributors to articles and publications.

 

“As the leading talent management systems consulting firm, our experience has shown us that the majority of talent acquisition and talent management systems are replaced due to customer “failure” and not due to items such as vendor viability, product roadmap or poor support,” stated Matt Lafata, Vice-President, Sales & Marketing with HRchitect. “This session focuses on helping businesses get the most out of their existing systems by showing organizations how to optimize processes and practices.”

 

The pre-conference workshop at the Spring 2009 ERE Expo will take place on Monday, March 30 from 2-5pm. This session will cover such questions and topics as:

 

  • How do you make sure you are getting a return on your existing ATS investment?
  • Have you met the business objectives and decision drivers that were defined prior to selecting a system?
  • How do you measure user effectiveness, usability, and satisfaction?
  • How do you get effective training of all types of your users (recruiters, hiring managers, employees, agencies, etc)?
  • How to achieve operational efficiency and usability with your ATS system
  • How to get adoption and increased usage of the system by all users
  • How do you continue to allow the ATS to evolve to meet changing needs and requirements of the organization?
  • What peripheral applications should you use for talent sourcing?

 

The session will be conducted by Brian Kimball of HRchitect who is considered the world’s leading ATS consultant along with Damon Lovett, HRMS Director for First American Corporation.

 

“HRchitect has a tremendous amount of collective knowledge and insight into HR systems and strategies and how to make sense of an ever-changing and confusing marketplace,” added Rick Fletcher, President and Founder of HRchitect. “I’ve been around this industry for 25 years and have found education essential to helping to avoid costly mistakes when making HR technology related decisions. Companies considering investments in HR technology should do themselves a big favor and use a consulting firm like HRchitect or at the very least, attend educational conferences or webinars conducted by industry experts to make better informed decisions.”

 

HRchitect will be exhibiting at the Spring 2009 ERE Expo at Booth #100.

Congratulations to our Mid-Market HRIS Beauty Pageant Winner – Spectrum!

February 21, 2009

 

On Friday, February 20, HRchitect held the seventh installation in our Beauty Pageant webinar series, this time focusing on mid-market HRIS (Human Resource Information Systems). Participants included leading vendors in the HRIS world – NuView Systems, PDS, Salary.com HRMS & Payroll, and Spectrum.

 

At the end of the webinar, which featured a short overview of the marketplace and definitions of what an HRIS and HRMS actually is, Spectrum was crowned the winner with Salary.com HRMS and Payroll the runner-up. HRchitect would like to thank the vendors for participating and the attendees for judging the contestants.

 

The HRchitect Director of Marketing and Corporate Communications, Tiffany Appleby, does an absolutely amazing job in helping to ensure these pageants run smoothly. It’s not an easy task coordinating every vendor’s presentation, setting up practice runs, and then running the program the day of the event. I know that I say this all the time but Tiffany is a tremendous asset and I couldn’t do all this without her.

 

The HRchitect beauty pageant series of webinars has quickly become the buzz of the industry since its debut in November 2008. This series of webinars covers a different area of HR technology with each event and is presented two times a month. The concept allows attendees to see presentations from up to six leading vendors in a fun and informative format where the audience votes on the winner at the conclusion.

 

Past Winners:

In November, iCIMS won the Talent Acquisitions Systems pageant and Cornerstone OnDemand won the Talent Management Systems pageant. Then in December, GeoLearning won the Learning Management Systems pageant. In January we had our Mid-Market Talent Acquisitions Systems pageant and iCIMS was crowned the winner and then our Onboarding pageant was held where SilkRoad was the winner. In addition to today’s HRIS webinar where Spectrum was crowned the winner, SumTotal Systems won the Performance Management pageant earlier this week.

 

The Beauty Pageants schedule continues in March as follows:

 

March 13 – 11am CST – Time & Attendance 
March 27 – 11am CST – Workforce Planning
April 10 – 11am CST – Compensation Management
April 17 – 11am CST – Succession Planning

 

In case you have missed any of our Beauty Pageants, you can view them here. The Beauty Pageants have become the buzz of the industry because of the way they provide exposure to a handful of leading vendors in a 90-minute fun and informative format.

HRchitect’s HR Technology Educational Webinar Series Continues – “Little to No Budget? Get More Mileage from Your Existing HR Systems”

February 19, 2009

 

Join HRchitect on Tuesday, February 25, 2009 at 11am CST as we show you how you can get more benefit and return on your investment in your current HR systems.

Is your system actually “broken” or do your processes and practices need to be improved? Technology is not the silver bullet that many people think it is. Automating an inefficient process just creates an inefficient system. How do you optimize your processes and practices so that your current HR Systems helps rather than hinders your organization?

Here’s what you will learn:
• How do you make sure you are getting a return on your existing HR Systems investment?
• Have you met the business objectives and decision drivers that were defined prior to selecting a system?
• How do you measure user effectiveness, usability, and satisfaction?
• How do you get effective training of all types of your users (recruiters, hiring managers, employees, agencies, etc)?
• How to achieve operational efficiency and usability with your HR Systems system
• How to get adoption and increased usage of the system by all users
• How do you continue to allow the HR System to evolve to meet changing needs and requirements of the organization?

HRchitect’s Beauty Pageant Webinar Series Continues With a Reschedule of the Performance Management Pageant

February 11, 2009

 

Even in the world of Beauty Pageants, sometimes technical difficulties can ruin a great event. No wardrobe malfunctions, fights amongst the participants or disruptions by unruly pageant attendees but a technical glitch by our webinar hosting company.

 

The problem that was beyond our control caused all audio to be lost after the third of five contestants forcing us to abrubtly end the show. This has never happened in the history of our Beauty Pageant webinar series and we truly apologize for any inconvenience this has caused the participants or the attendees.

 

Our beauty pageant series of webinars has become the buzz of the industry and as a result, we know how difficult it can be for participants to get up on a global stage and strut their stuff with so many people watching. In the spirit of being fair to all, we will be redoing this pageant and have rescheduled it for February 19 at 11am CST. We hope you can join us and hope you will tell others.

 

The contestants and the order of presentations will be the same. Cornerstone OnDemand, SumTotal Systems, Workscape, Salary.com and Sonar6.

We also have a full schedule of 2009 beauty pageants on our site and several vendors have asked that we create beauty pageants around additional topics, which we are currently in the process of scheduling.

 

The following Beauty Pageant will be on HRIS and will take place on February 20 and at this point we have Lawson Software, NuView Systems, PDS, Salary.com HRMS & Payroll and Spectrum HR.

 

The 90-minute webinar agendas will look like this:

 

Intro by HRchitect

Overview of the marketplace by HRchitect

Short vendor presentations (vendor order will be determine at random)

Q&A of vendors from the audience

Crowning of the Winner

Wrap-up

 

These beauty pageants are designed to give the audience a quick overview of the leading vendors and we are looking for creativity in presentations. Some of the past participants have gotten extremely creative in their presentations and we thank them for their time and efforts in doing this.

The Vurv Webinar Series Continues This Friday, February 13. Don’t miss it!

February 9, 2009

 

Let’s face it. The TAS marketplace is changing drastically every day and it’s important to keep up on the available products available today and what’s on the horizon in the near future. Nobody knows this marketplace better than HRchitect and we would now like to share some information with you as you face a critical decision time as to what to do with your Vurv system.
 
Due to the acquisition of Vurv by Taleo back in May of 2008, it has presented three possible directions for Vurv customers at this point.
 
1)  Stay on Vurv until Taleo eventually discontinues all support for the product. This will be in 2011, based on what Taleo is currently saying. Your contract may be expiring before that, causing you to make a decision sooner. Most Vurv customers we have spoken to have indicated they are having issues with Vurv currently and HRchitect would be happy to assist with Vurv product support services until a new ATS is selected.

2)  Convert to Taleo. Since we have implemented both systems more than any other consulting firm, we would love to help with the implementation, should you decide that is the best course of action. We also have tremendous post-implementation experience as well, including System and Process Optimization, User Adoption and Change Management, Report Writing, Integration Support, and System Administration Services.

3)  Evaluate TAS solutions and keep all options open – as the number one TAS consulting firm, HRchitect would be happy to assist and the following proposal reflects our evaluation and selection process
 
This webinar will provide you with: 

  • An overall understanding and observations of the current TAS and TMS marketplace
  • Background, high-level strategy and discussion of three options facing Vurv customers
  • Recommendations on moving forward
  • Who are the leading TAS vendors in the different market segments
  • Decision Drivers you should use as you evaluate replacement options
  • Questions and answers from our experts

 

HRchitect is considered the world’s leading TAS consulting firm and is the only consulting firm in this space that covers the entire Talent Management Systems (TMS) spectrum rather than just individual components.
 
HRchitect has been involved in the implementation of Taleo at over 80 companies and Vurv at over 30 companies and has been able to effectively manage implementation projects that have been very challenging from both implementation complexity and demanding client “culture” standpoints. Let us now help you.
 
An additional value that HRchitect brings to your firm is that no other consulting organization knows the TMS marketplace and vendors better than HRchitect. HRchitect has extensive experience implementing the majority of “tier one” and “tier two” ATS software solution. HRchitect has worked on over 600 client projects during the past twelve years and we have a unique understanding of what it takes to be successful. 

Matt Lafata, HRchitect
