XCD HR launches at Cloudforce 2011

Start-up company launch set to put HR management into the Cloud

London, 12th September 2011: XCD HR announces the launch of its cloud HR solution at the Cloudforce exhibition and conference in London on 14th & 15th September. XCD HR’s cloud-based solution simplifies HR administration, increases productivity and aims to empower managers and employees across organisations.

XCD HR’s CEO & Founder, Chris Mitford-Slade, said: “XCD HR will transform organisations. This is not just about automating HR processes and procedures – our cloud-based HR solution will sweep aside the days of filing cupboards, form filling, spreadsheets and frantic searching for documents, data and reports. HR Managers will be able to focus on adding value to their business by operating as strategic business partners with the confidence that they have every bit of HR information, reports and analysis at hand.”

XCD HR’s core management system is offered as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, centralising all employee data, documents, policies and procedures into a single location. The HR data is then accessible anywhere, anytime and built in work flow, automation, reminders, alerts and mail merge increase individual productivity. XCD HR also provides a sophisticated reporting package which allows managers to easily view the information they need on their organisation’s employees.

“Cloud applications are set to eclipse traditional on-premise solutions,” said Chris Mitford-Slade, who is also a Chartered Fellow of the CIPD. “You can more effectively support a dispersed workforce, and home based workers, by providing them with access to data and information, anywhere and anytime. The knowledge that your HR data is always available, secure and backed up provides peace of mind and enables you to handle emergency incidents and maintain business continuity whenever required. You can also customise the XCD solution to meet your own internal processes and procedures, without having to wait for costly upgrades. And as it’s delivered over the cloud, it is now available and affordable for organisations of all sizes.”

XCD HR will be demonstrating their solution at Cloudforce (Stand G35).
