This report has just been  released by independent research company, Navigo Research. The report, based on a survey of over 690,000 employees representing nearly 300 organisations, comprises two categories: ‘HR Systems Adoption’ and ‘Management of HR Systems’. Respondents provided information on HR software used, technology adoption across functional areas, satisfaction rates, age of systems, expenditure and future trends. “Fusion5 is ecstatic to be in this position and recognised for the first time as a top player in the Australian HR Technology Report,” said Jose Alonso, HCM Business Development Manager at Fusion5. “To be equally matched with Oracle PeopleSoft in adoption levels is really satisfying.”  “The report found that over half of HR Payroll systems are on-premise but there is an upward swing for cloud-based solutions,” said Mr Alonso. “We’ve already felt this shift, with around 30% of Fusion5’s customers adopting the Cloud5 solution to host their Empower system.” The survey, conducted between February and March 2014, is for organisations of more than 100 employees across Australia and New Zealand.
