Overview, Background & Goals
The HRmanager website development project aims to launch in the HR market by providing a comprehensive, user-friendly platform that streamlines human resource operations for businesses of all sizes. By offering a suite of tools that address common pain points in HR management, the project seeks to level the playing field, giving employers and employees alike the confidence and reassurance they need to navigate their responsibilities effectively. The platform will also offer access to legal experts, saving time and increasing peace of mind for users.

Currently, the HRmanager system is intimately connected to the main Lawgistics platform which is only tied to one industry vertical (Automotive). This tranche of work aims to separate these and have the HRmanager element distinct from a user perspective. However, the business logic and technology will remain integrated across the platforms. 

Target Audience

HRmanager understand the challenge of managing people and the need for efficient processes. Their mission is to simplify managers’ lives by providing a complete solution that streamlines workflows, promotes paperless operations, and offers deep insights into employee performance and management trends. This overall aim can be split into three predominant audience groups, which will facilitate important user journey decisions throughout the website’s development.

Primary Audience: SMEs, 1-50 Employees

The primary audience is small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with 1-50 employees. These businesses are currently facing an incident that requires swift and efficient resolution. The incident could involve various areas such as contracts, disciplinary actions, appraisals, or policies. However, the SMEs currently do not have any HR software in place and are managing all these matters manually. Additionally, these SMEs are concerned about the effectiveness and validity of their contracts and policies. They are unsure if their documents comply with modern standards of compliance and if they are up to date.

Secondary Audience: SMEs, 50-100 Employees

The secondary audience is small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with 50 to 100 employees. These SMEs have concerns about document storage and management, particularly related to potential breaches of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and security issues. They also face challenges in finding time to review and update their contracts and policies manually. Additionally, these SMEs are experiencing inefficiencies and/or high costs with their current human resources (HR) solution.

Tertiary Audience: HR Consultants & Accountants

The tertiary target audience consists of HR consultants and accountants. They face challenges related to repetitive tasks involved in updating company handbooks. They also need to hire extra staff to handle the workload. They have to manage multiple platforms while working with different clients. Making contract and policy updates across various industries is a time-consuming process for them.

Unique Selling Points of HRmanager

HRmanager stands out from its competitors through its unique ability to update existing contracts, policies, and company handbooks seamlessly, eliminating the need for reissuing new documents. Additionally, the tool offers robust reporting capabilities that provide valuable insights from a managerial perspective, prioritising actionable data over superficial employee engagement metrics. With the support of a seasoned legal team, HRmanager goes the extra mile by offering comprehensive legal assistance that surpasses what other tools provide.
