Allocate Software has chosen Sage People’s award-winning HR system to support its global employee network. As part of a programme to improve HR data analysis, the system will provide reporting and enhanced access to data as the organization continues to increase market and geographical penetration in the provision of software and related services to Healthcare companies worldwide. Sage People’s global HRMS will deliver a comprehensive cloud-based solution that will assist Allocate Software in better, developing and engaging its workforce, as company and headcount continue to grow.

The company is a leading provider of specialist workforce management optimization and corporate governance, risk and compliance software. Founded in 1991, the UK headquartered company has grown steadily and today has 320 employees spanning the UK, Australia, Sweden and Macedonia. They have more than 700 public and private sector customers around the world and is focused on helping businesses to manage large, multi-skilled workforces in complex environments as diverse as Healthcare, Defence, and Maritime & Offshore.

Allocate needed a cloud software solution that would speed up and standardize its core processes. It also needed a solution that could integrate easily with its existing rostering, payroll and benefits systems, and deliver increased functionality to HR personnel and managers alike. In particular, the company’s employee onboarding processes required significant improvement to eliminate time-consuming manual data entry and administration. As such they sought a world class HR system that could meet its specific needs including the configuration of workflows and approval processes. It also required a system that could be deployed quickly, support employees in multiple countries, whilst providing great workforce experiences.

Key to Allocate choosing Sage People’s HRMS was its easy integration capabilities. They were particularly impressed with Sage People’s integration engine, Payflow, which will enable valuable integration with their payroll and rostering solutions. This will help the organization to maximise efficiency by reducing the volume of manual processing and as a result, the HR team will be more productive and improve employee engagement by focusing on higher value services across the global business.

Ian Bowles, Allocate Software’s CEO has high expectations. “The team is very optimistic about the functionality of Sage People’s HRMS. The fact that the application utilizes the platform was seen as a positive by our IT & Business systems director. The system will be implemented rapidly, meaning we can make quick strides forward – and in a much shorter timeframe than the 9-12 month estimates we received from other providers. We were impressed by how easily Sage People’s technology integrates with our own existing systems, and look forward to seeing the outcomes it will enable in terms of improved business performance”.

“Allocate Software is a market leading company expanding in multiple countries, and is well placed to benefit quickly from deploying Sage People”, said Sage People CEO, Adam Hale. “We’re delighted to have been selected to help its worldwide HR team support the ambitious,  growth initiatives”.
