The international expenses specialist, webexpenses, has kickstarted the global roll out of a new HR system from Cezanne HR, the leading provider of Cloud HR software for mid-sized and growing UK and international businesses.

Webexpenses, with offices in the UK, Australia and the US, has started the implementation with the installation of the People Management and Absence Management modules in its UK headquarters. This will be followed in a matter of weeks by a similar roll out in Australia and the US before the company then goes live with the Performance Management module to coincide with its established performance reviews and appraisals calendar.

Explaining the rationale behind the decision to select Cezanne HR, webexpenses’ Head of HR, Melanie Guy, said: “We had outgrown our legacy HR system and are expanding rapidly so I was looking for a more robust and sophisticated solution that could help us manage this growth. As a provider of genuine Cloud-native, SaaS services ourselves, I was also determined to partner with a company with an equally up-to-date approach.”

With HR software, especially, it can be challenging to cut through the smoke and mirrors and identify which companies have just Cloud-enabled older solutions, and which ones have rebuilt them to take advantage more cost-effective ways of delivering software.

A key benefit of the Cezanne HR system is that new enhancements are added every month, often in response to customer requests. Updates are delivered seamlessly, as part of the subscription service, so customers always have the latest features at their fingertips at no extra cost.

“I was tremendously impressed by the fact that Cezanne HR really ‘gets’ HR and truly understands the issues that users like us face,” added Melanie. “For instance, as well as offering us a genuine Cloud-based solution that will flex and grow in line with our requirements, the new system will make it simpler for us to connect a global workforce and we’ll be better equipped to deal with the upcoming GDPR compliance legislation.

“From a more pragmatic, day to day perspective,” Melanie concluded, “the implementation and configuration was very straightforward and the self-service element of the new system is so simple and intuitive that everyone from top to bottom loves using it.”

Founded in 2013, Cezanne HR is on a mission to take the cost and complexity out of HR software. “As a team, we’ve decades of experience delivering HR solutions to companies worldwide”, Marketing Director, Sue Lingard explained. “We know that while HR is complex, HR systems don’t need to be. What HR professionals like Melanie and her team at webexpenses need is a way of getting things done more easily and more productively. With Cezanne HR, we’ve developed a modern Cloud HR system that’s exceptionally cost-effective and quick to deploy – and gives HR the freedom to configure it to fit around their way of working.”

Headquartered in London, Cezanne HR’s international Cloud HR system – which includes modules for core HR as well as absence, performance, recruitment and, most recently, career and succession management, is used in over 80 countries worldwide.
