Interact HRMS is an enterprise HRMS software with more than seventy (70) integrated applications that cover all aspects of HR and Payroll business within an organization. Interact HRMS software can be implemented for a single employer/company in a single country or for multiple employers across the global. Interact HRMS is a Ready-Made software, and is not custom-built application. Interact HRMS is flexible enough to support most client policies using setup parameters, however, and since it is Ready-Made, it is not going to mimic what the client does. It is important to understand the difference between “What Is Suppose to be Produced, the end Result”, and “How the result is Produced”. Interact HRMS Implementation scope depends on the configuration of the software as purchased by the Client and the number of companies and countries in which the software is to be implemented.
Our basic philosophy is to keep things “Simple” and “Easy”. Interact HRMS has been designed in support of these two principles. And this is applicable to everything we do, software architecture, support technologies, installation and implementation.
Implementing and deploying a comprehensive and integrated HRMS such as Interact HRMS with seventy applications across countries is a major undertaking that ONLY systemic planning and organization combined with an implementation methodology that is simple, manageable, and easy to use, yet powerful to be able to handle all facets of the a large project. 2Interact Philosophy in planning and implementation of Interact HRMS for both large and small projects is based on the simple principle of keeping things simple and easy to use, while providing the required tools to be able to achieve a successful implementation. The guiding principle behind 2Interact Philosophy is “Less is more“, and this is applicable to product architecture, design, code, implementation methodology, and implementation planning.
The measure of the success of any HRMS Project is simply when all purchased Interact HRMS applications are live and users are using the software to process their day to day HR and Payroll transactions. And this is the goal that you as an IIC need to keep in mind whenever you are doing an implementation. Keeping this goal in mind, it is critical that all the tools we use during the project execution should help and facilitate the achievement of this goal. Anything that is an obstacle or hindrance to the achievement of this goal, or lengthen the time to achieve this goal should be assessed and eliminated, or kept a side.
Finally, it is critical to understand that the success of any project is driven by project ownership, use of the 80/20 rule where we should focus on the 80 percent most important functions of the application and don’t let the 20% less important issues become an obstacle. Getting the application(s) implemented and in use (Go Live) quickly, as in the usability of the application that the user is in better position to be able to provide the effective feedback based on use than on hypothetical concepts. Managing the project requires planning, but at the same time it requires paying attention to the success factors and ensuring that these are always in place and are practiced, otherwise the project may be affected. It is therefore, important to make sure that these success factors are addressed in the progress review meetings to ensure that they are being practiced.
In this implementation handbook, we shall address the tools and the principles that you need to use whenever you are implementing Interact HRMS. When implementing Interact HRMS, you need and must use these tools and focus on the principles presented in this handbook.
