42% of HR Technology projects fail to meet company objectives

According to a 2021 Josh Bersin Company study

Wow! What a scary statistic!

However, the vast majority of HR technology solutions work well for the right customer. The trick is picking the right vendor solution to meet the unique needs of your organization.

Why do organizations choose the wrong solution?

Many HR Technology vendors don’t demonstrate how their solutions will meet the total needs of the customer. Vendors tend to focus on how the feature/functionality can handle the customer’s technical business requirements, but not how their offerings are different and superior to the other HR vendor’s solutions. Ideally, the HR vendor should make it easy for the customer to choose the solution that is right for their organization. However, in many cases, the customer perceives very little difference between each of the solutions and defaults to generic criteria for making their decision such as cost, reputation, vendor size, etc.

Embedded flexible analytics enable you to create dashboards, reports, etc. to provide you actionable workforce insights without the need to depend on vendors to create customized reports.

Industry Expertise

Organizations utilize vendor support more than they expect. Ensure you understand the vendors support model and how it will meet your critical needs. Customers who switch solutions rank lack of support as a key reason for leaving their existing vendor.


Are the vendors employees engaged and happy? Happy employees go the extra mile to create great products and provide outstanding service for their customers.

Track Record & Reputation

How long has the vendor been in business? Do they have a track record of adapting to technology, business, and regulatory changes?
