The Challenge

Chase de Vere’s internal HR software was 10 years old and the team wanted to replace it and incorporate payroll into the new system.

They were working with three standalone systems – holiday and absence, personnel and payroll - and wanted to streamline the way HR worked without losing any of the functionality.

Employee self-service was high on the wish list too, as it made sense for the way the business operated. As a growing business, Chase de Vere wanted a high functioning HR solution that would help them meet ambitious goals.

The Solution

XCD initially configured the core HR product to get self-service up and running and reintroduce HR into the business. This was followed with the introduction of payroll, to offer one complete single HR and Payroll solution.

Gillian Horley, HR Systems and Informations Officer, Chase de Vere said:

"Everything you would traditionally have within a paper based employee file can now be contained within the one system. I’ve got the ability to store documents and correspondence, everything is in one place. That’s the advantage, and it’s the same for our employees. They have self-service access so they can also look at previous performance appraisals themselves."

The Results

Gillian added:

"We have our HR policies and procedures saved within the system so they can see all of this in one place. This includes standard internal forms, any kind of forms they might need to notify us of things; they’re all in the system. As for team charts and organisational charts, I used to have to do them in PowerPoint and update them all the time, now it’s just automatic."

Efficiency, control and visibility have been achieved within Chase de Vere.

Real time HR information is available at the touch of a button to those who require it, and the system can grow to support Chase de Vere’s longer term goals.

They could do it all

“We had a huge requirements document, and initially looked at over 100 companies. We chose XCD because they could do it all, and we loved their flexibility. I can make the system work the way I want.”
