What is People Management Software?

People management software is designed to streamline and improve essential human resources management. Alongside storing and organising employee data, people or employee management software should include features for HR compliance (e.g. Health and Safety, Disciplinary and Grievance, Right to Work checks), data compliance (GDPR), document generation and e-signatures, HR portals, company assets, benefits & compensation and secure employee and manager self-service.

Employee Experience

Match your system to your culture

Easily configure your Cezanne HR system to reflect your brand and culture, and ensure a personalised experience for all your employees.


Automatic Alerts and Notifications

Never miss an important date

People combines integrated workflow with your rules and reporting relationships to automatically route approvals and notifications to the right people at the right time, saving you time and helping ensure key activities don’t get missed.

You can configure approval processes and notifications to work in different ways for different groups of employees and set up automated reminders so important activities – such as visa renewals – don’t get overlooked.


E-signatures and Document Tracking

Focus on people not paperwork

From promotions and pay awards to policies and processes, with People it’s easy to create, distribute and track any kind of communication. Simply select, upload or create the appropriate template, then choose who to send it to, how it should be tracked, and the system takes care of the rest.

Documents can be sent to specific individuals or groups of employees and, with everything in one place, it’s easy for HR and employees to keep track of the status of important information.


With Cezanne HR, that admin overhead goes away, as does the paperwork. We don’t have a single filing cabinet in our HR office.


Form Builder with workflow

Take a digital-first approach

Cezanne HR’s intuitive form builder means you’ll never need to process another paper form. From travel loans applications and expense claims to requests to work from home, it’s simple to set up online forms that reflect your exact needs and are routed through your approval process.

Information is centralised, processes run more smoothly, and everyone benefits from a personal ‘form hub’ where they can find new forms or check the status of ones they have already submitted.

HR Portals & Workspaces

Create training and communication hubs

Bring people and information together with easy-to-setup HR portals and workspaces that make it simple for everyone to access company content and stay in touch.

Every portal can have its own content, such as videos, links, documents and newsfeeds, and participants, so you can engage your whole workforce or specific groups of employees.


Integrated SMS text messaging

Ensure important information gets through

Cezanne HR makes it simple to send SMS text messages directly from your Cezanne HR system to employees in over 120 countries worldwide. SMS can be sent to all employees or to staff in a specific location, department or any other group.

Since most mobile users read incoming messages immediately, it’s the perfect way to make your workforce aware of urgent or important information.
