January 19, 2010

 

Our weekly WebMingle is designed to give you some insight into the puzzling world of HR technology, discuss news from around the world that we find interesting, talk about upcoming events in our industry, and provide insightful interviews with people of our industry – who they are, what they do and why you should care. The WebMingle has become the most popular live weekly Internet show in the HR technology industry! It has truly redefined how people get information about vendors, trends and really anything related to HR technology.

So what is a WebMingle? It is a meeting over the web where we do some business, socialize and yes, we mingle over the web. Thus, a WebMingle.

The 55-minute WebMingle on January 14th, the 49th in our WebMingle series, featured Morne Swart, Vice-President of Product Management for CyberShift. Morne is very passionate and knowledgeable about Workforce Management, Time & Attendance, Scheduling, and Expense Management. We touched on a bunch of issues related to all of that including: 

  • Importance of absence management in today’s economy
  • Direct and Indirect costs associated with absenteeism
  • Automating absence management to mitigate risks with compliance
  • Trends in mobile workforce including business challenges
  • …and so much more

HRchitect’s Beauty Pageant Webinar Series Continues This Friday with Time & Attendance Systems

June 3, 2009

 

The HRchitect beauty pageant series of webinars has become the buzz of the industry. This series of webinars covers a different area of HR technology with each event. The concept allows attendees to see presentations from up to five leading vendors in a fun and informative format where the audience votes on the winner at the conclusion. 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 our Onboarding pageant where SilkRoad was the winner. In February we covered Employee Performance Management where SumTotal Systems won and then mid-market HRIS where Spectrum HR was the winner. In March it was all about Workforce Planning Systems and Infohrm walked away with the crown. The last beauty pageant took place in April where Workstream walked away with the Compensation Systems crown.

To view any of these past pageants, please visit the beauty pageant part of our website. After this week’s pageant, the beauty pageants will take a few month hiatus and come back in August. We 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 next exciting pageant, the tenth in the series, will be on Time & Attendance Systems and will take place this Friday, June 5. The participants will be top vendors in this space, Associated Time, CyberShift, Legiant, and Nova. 

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

The sessions are moderated by Matt Lafata, VP of Sales & Marketing for HRchitect.

HRchitect developed a format to help guide each vendor with an outline of what should be covered during each portion of the pageant.  Since we have billed this as a beauty pageant, we tried to come up with pageant categories for vendors to loosely follow. Of course each vendor is free to follow their own format as this is simply a guideline:

Evening gown – To start off each portion, we are asking the vendor to come out in their best ‘outfit’ – corporate overview, history, specific identity, financial viability, marquee clients, leadership team, etc. This will be the grand entrance.

Swimsuit – Here the vendors will show some skin in this portion – usability, configurability, etc.

Talent – This portion will cover functionality, technology/integration, global ability, etc.

Interview – This will be the Q & A section from the audience. 

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.
