Companies often select a HCM solution primarily based on product functionality and may have overlooked critical aspects of vendor fit. They checked every functionality box but missed other criteria such as implementation quality, the vendor's support team, or how difficult it is to create their required reports. Not to mention that vendors don't always live up to their promises.
This can leave customers feeling abandoned, misled, and ultimately searching for alternatives, to no one's benefit.

The level of complexity of your business will impact which solutions are a good fit to meet your needs. Organizations with simple requirements will find they don't need to overpay for solutions that are designed for highly complex organizations.
Ensure that the vendor offers feature/functionality that meets the unique needs of your business.
How quickly do you want to go live on your solutions, what internal resources will be involved, and how does the vendor manage the implementation process to ensure a successful implementation?
Is the solution intuitive? The simpler the solution the easier they are to use and more widely adopted across the organization.
The vendor should deliver extensive standard reports, custom report writers, and dashboards to enable organizations to uncover actionable workforce insights without the need to depend on vendors to create customized reports.
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.
Does the vendor utilize Open APIs and simplify the integration process to 3rd party solutions? Lack of dependable integrations between your systems can be a source of frustration.
Are the vendor's employees engaged and happy? Happy employees go the extra mile to create great products and provide outstanding service for their customers.
