Just the other day I wrote about the impact that working on exciting, industry leading software has on our people—creating an energy and enthusiasm that comes from contributing to important work. Well, now we’ll be ratcheting that up a notch after yesterday’s announcement of our strategic partnership with Maxwell Health.
NetSuite #2, Forbes Most Innovative Growth Companies 2014
When TribeHR was acquired by NetSuite, small and mid-sized businesses gained access, for the first time, to an integrated, cloud-based ERP and HCM software suite. The addition of Maxwell’s revolutionary cloud solution for employee healthcare and benefits administration to the NetSuite TribeHR human capital management (HCM) platform means SMBs can now run end-to-end HCM business processes from recruiting, managing and rewarding employees, to facilitating healthcare benefits enrollment, administering benefits and promoting workforce wellness – all in the cloud.
There is general consensus in the industry that the marriage of ERP and HCM is inevitable. According Paul Hamerman at Forrester Research
“A company needs to know on a cost level how many employees they have and what it’s costing them, along with turnover rates and analytics to help them make decisions and understand the essential talent that makes the organization successful.”
This is only possible if business information and financial data are synchronized with HCM data. It’s not enough, however, to cobble together diverse components without providing a single, unified platform. Delivering such a unified platform has been NetSuite’s focus since identifying the integration of HCM as a clear customer need and making it a strategic objective.
For the team at NetSuite TribeHR, this means we have the opportunity to work on the industry’s first unified cloud based ERP/HCM system, creating immeasurable value for our customers and making history at the same time. No wonder we’re humming.
