What is Criterion HCM for Inacct HR?

Criterion HCM is a sophisticated cloud-based Human Capital Management (HCM) system specifically designed to handle the complex demands of HR departments. It provides a comprehensive suite of tools to manage all aspects of human resources from recruitment and onboarding to performance management and payroll processing. The platform has an intuitive and fully customizable interface, allowing HR professionals to tailor features to fit their unique operational needs.

Unlike traditional ERP systems that may offer broad but shallow capabilities across various business functions, Criterion focuses on deep, functional support specifically for HR tasks. It integrates smoothly with leading financial management systems like Sage Intacct, leveraging your existing investment. This specialized focus helps organizations streamline their HR and payroll processes, ensuring that these critical operations are handled with the precision and care they require.

Challenges of Traditional ERP and Human Resources Integration

Traditional HCM systems often face numerous challenges when integrating with ERP software. These issues can significantly hinder operational efficiency and data accuracy, impacting overall business performance.

  • Data Synchronization Problems: Traditional integrations commonly rely on batch processing or file-based synchronization, which can delay data updates between systems. This lag not only affects the timeliness of information but can also lead to discrepancies in data, creating issues for payroll processing and financial reporting.
  • High Costs and IT Burden: Setting up and maintaining traditional ERP integrations typically involves significant IT resources and high costs. These systems often require custom development to meet specific needs, which can be expensive and time-consuming to implement and update.
  • Lack of Flexibility: Many older systems are rigid in their structure, making it difficult to adapt to changing business needs or integrate with newer technologies. This inflexibility can prevent organizations from evolving their processes and adopting more efficient practices.

These challenges underscore the need for a more dynamic and integrated approach, such as the one provided by Criterion HCM, using a modern architecture with a REST API to ensure seamless, real-time data flow and greater operational adaptability.
