Human Resources — A comprehensive, end-to-end HR service that aims to keep employees, managers and HR administrators up to date and compliant.

Payroll — An integrated payroll engine provides access to data to process payroll correctly. Alerts let multiple people work on payroll at the same time without causing issues, and eliminate pre-processing steps. Payroll is continually updated in real time.

Hiring — Comprehensive applicant tracking, screening and on-boarding accelerates employee recruitment and hiring.

Analytics — Makes sense of big workforce management data with diagnostic views of key labor metrics and point-and-click reporting that identifies areas for cost savings, innovation and growth.
