HR software comparisons jointly with Consult-HR

We at Consult-HR look forward to supporting you in HR software comparisons. In the German-speaking market alone, there are now more than 250 HR solutions – this trend rising sharply. Not least due to the proliferation of cloud technology, the available spectrum of professional HR software has become almost unmanageable.

HR software market in transition

Comparisons between HR software reveal disparities in the market for human-resource solutions. Unlike other software sectors, there are no clear market leaders here. Major software manufacturers such as SAP, Oracle and Microsoft are finding it difficult to attain their usual dominance in the HR software environment. In the competition between providers, the numerous medium-sized software houses usually have the lead. These are predominantly fully specialized in personnel processes and have long been established on the market. New arrivals in recent years have comprised many providers from Germany and abroad relying, in particular, on web-based applications and cloud technology.

Multiple special solutions or everything from a single source?

When comparing human-resource software, it should be noted that highly specialized applications are available in addition to extensive human-resource management suites. Whereas some companies prefer a solution from a single source, perhaps also necessitating compromises in terms of functionality, others prefer the so-called best-of-breed concept. In this case, they choose the best solution for each area. We look forward to advising you on the advantages and disadvantages of each strategy, and consider a number of scenarios when comparing HR software.
