Challenges of Creating HR Compensation Software Solutions

Market pricing is of core importance for businesses of all sizes and industries, but for too long HR departments needed to perform all the required research and computations manually, like it was a century ago. Our client, being an outstanding SaaS startup, decided to change the face of the market pricing, and make it truly digital, automated, and state-of-the-art.

Our customer wanted to free HR specialists from the burden of clunky and hard-to-use software and the painful process of annual data migration. They decided to create an HRM system that could be totally digital, easy to use, and fast due to automated manual workflows, robust data collection, visualization, and reporting features. They want to help all HR professionals with a solution that can cover their needs and become a handy tool for everyday tasks.

In other words, they were looking for a software vendor able to reach the following goals:

  • Build from scratch a robust HR compensation software with custom functionality;
  • Automate the process of data collection, research, migration, and structuring of the gained results;
  • Provide the platform with powerful computational, data visualization, and structure modeling capabilities;
  • Enable bug-free work of the HRM system with hundreds of variable values;
  • Ensure high scalability, flexibility, and security of the system for various business plans available;
  • Provide full technical support and maintenance for the compensation software.

Thus, the client was looking for highly skilled frontend and backend engineers with a strong background in cloud infrastructure, able to create the fitting architecture and build such a robust solution from scratch. They also wanted to be sure that the possible candidates possessed a proficient level of English, as they wanted them to become an integral part of their in-house software team.

That’s how the client came upon our company profile and decided to set up an introductory call. During the call, they shared the project details, requirements, and expectations, and soon after that, the client chose Fively as the best-suiting software company for the project implementation. Our fruitful collaboration on a common project started in 2020 and lasted for 17 months.

How We Built Software for the HR Department: an Online HRM System

During this project, Fively frontend and backend engineers worked closely with the client’s in-house team to build a game-changing HR compensation tool, using the strategy described below.

Project architecture. Our React engineers used the full potential of this framework to create smart, user-friendly, and intuitive interface for this HRM management system, while our backend specialists completed all the needed operations using the Node.js platform and AWS robust infrastructure capabilities.

Team structure. To implement the full scope of this HR soft compensation project tasks, we involved 5 highly-proficient backend and 4 of our senior frontend engineers, who are also well-versed in utilizing the AWS toolset.

Communication tools. During this project on creating ERP software for HR departments, we worked closely with the client’s software team and ensured the top level of transparency upon the project’s progress. We provided the client with daily stand-ups as well as weekly meetings to talk about the current status of the team, manage the project delivery, and discuss any arising technical issues. We mainly used email and Slack for in-team communication, as well as GitHub for project management and status updates.

The chosen communication, technical, and team management solutions allowed us to successfully cover all the compensation software HR project’s goals, implement a rich set of custom features, and build a transparent and partner-like cooperation model with the client.

The client, just as the final users of the created HR compensation software, were highly satisfied with the platform. Working together with the client's in-house development team, we created one of the best software for HR departments, available in the market. Below you can find the project results in detail.
