The cost, for eight users, for example, would be 69p per employee per month.The software includes modules for personnel, an SMP calculator, time &attendance, payroll and shopfloor data collection, plus 11 other products. “We have listened to what HR professionals have been telling us andthis initiative has been driven by demand,” said May. “Our concept is different in that you only pay for what you reallyrequire. It is flexible for any size and shape of organisation and the rentalarrangement gives you flexibility. We are taking away the risk because you arenot locked in.”The software is available to everyone and not just Eversheds clients. Thismove by Eversheds is seen as part of an increasing trend towardsdiversification by suppliers to the HR profession.
