Businesses announce joint-venture ground breaking HR legal compliance software

Two businesses have joined forces and developed an innovative software solution to help HR managers, and those with line management responsibility, to manage human resources more efficiently and to mitigate employment law risks.

Cloudtamers Ltd HR software specialists and Willans LLP solicitors spotted a gap in the market and their market leading HR management system and legal compliance module was born.

Willans’ specialist, nationally-recommended employment team spend all day, every day, helping organisations – multi-national companies, SMEs, owner-managed businesses and not-for-profit organisations – with employee issues. They help businesses to achieve their goals whilst managing legal risks. Established in the 1940s, the Lexcel-accredited firm has been around for a long time and is known for giving expert, practical and personal service and for taking good care of its clients. Their innovative involvement with Cloudtamers HR management software ensures businesses are provided with best practice, easy-to-follow practical know-how which is all based on up-to-date legislation and case law.

The ground breaking new element, HR Legal Toolkit, integrates with Cloudtamers HR software and creates a seamless system to guide users through approved HR processes – from recruiting to performance issues and dismissal – thereby controlling spend and reducing the likelihood of litigation.

Nick Eden, chief executive officer of Cloudtamers, explained that the type of organisations that benefit most from this comprehensive HR system are ones with 100 or more employees (including seasonal staff and contractors), particularly if it has offices spread across multiple locations or multi-jurisdictions. He said:

“Good HR management saves companies both time and money. Poor HR management is costly – it’s not just inefficient but it can lead to discord, disengagement and ultimately expensive tribunals. Cloudtamers and Willans can help businesses maximise the benefits of good HR management and minimise the risk and cost of getting it wrong.”

Matthew Clayton, head of Willans’ employment team, said:

“Businesses need not worry about keeping their policies and processes legally compliant as this is all part of the HR Legal Toolkit service, which contains up-to-date HR process templates and a document library, designed and managed by Willans – all within a comprehensive HR management system. HR managers, or people with line management responsibilities, also benefit from a legal helpline as Willans’ qualified employment lawyers are only a phone call away.”
