Tips for choosing your employee management software
The best software is one that grows with you—not one you outgrow. Ask about modern features such as employee self-service and a mobile app that can keep everyone on your team connected and empowered.
Your new employee management software might have a learning curve, but it should feel intuitive and easy to use. Reports should be simple to find but detailed in nature, giving you the insights you need to make informed decisions.
Remote work has opened up more possibilities for talent. Will you need to add contractors for part of the year or need more part-time staff or have employees in another province? Ask to see how the software handles it.
Is the price that you were quoted the full price? Ask if you’ll be charged for “extras” such as custom reporting, generating T4s, ROEs, or online pay stubs, or ad-hoc pay runs.
Adding employee and payroll data into a new system can be a lot to manage. Ask who will be handling the migration and how much work will be required on your part (hint: it should be very little to none).
Having local, knowledgeable support (i.e. PCP certified) with extended hours of availability can cut down on your stress. Ask if support is just by phone or also includes email and online chat. Ask also if there’s a help centre with FAQs and articles to guide you.
