Lawson Software, a global provider of enterprise software applications, has launched Human Capital Management (HCM) solution to the Australia and New Zealand market.
The solution, cited as a leading HCM application for the United States’ midmarket by independent research firm Forrester Research, Inc., will also be available to mid-to large-sized companies in ANZ.
According to Forrester Research, Inc, Lawson is tackling new frontiers in HR management systems.
Lawson Human Capital Management is suited for companies in Lawson’s targeted industries, including healthcare, retail and government as well as manufacturing and distribution firms in the fashion and food and beverage industries.
The launch is the new move by Lawson to expand product availability and vertical market focus in all of the company’s global markets, including ANZ, following the merger of Lawson and the former Intentia International AB in April 2006.
According to Lawson Software, Lawson HCM is a powerful tool for companies in the ANZ region, Lawson is aware that there is a significant gap where current solutions either do not adequately meet the functional needs of customers, have little ongoing support and development, or are too complex or costly to manage.
More than 1,000 companies across the globe benefit from Lawson HCM applications in automating administrative HR processes and helping HR staff focus on more strategic, value-added employee initiatives.
Lawson HCM applications provide organisations with the information they need to maximise workforce potential, while helping HR leaders contribute to organisational excellence with applications that directly support business operations.
Lawson’s strategy in ANZ will focus, in part, on companies that purchased HR applications in the past from providers that have since disappeared in the rapidly consolidating enterprise software space and consequently no longer have the support and development they require.
Lawson offers a viable alternative to the larger enterprise software providers by offering solutions that are a more attractive, are simpler to own and use, and offer lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
According to Lawson, its applications are designed with the mid-market in mind, but it offers scalability and flexibility to accommodate growth and global expansion.
Lawson’s HCM solutions align people and processes while helping to transform the role of the human resources professional from being focused on administrative and policy enforcement activities to becoming a strategic partner within an organisation.
According to a Forrester analysis of Lawson entitled Lawson is tackling new frontiers in HR management systems; the Lawson Human Capital Management suite offers deep and scalable functionality in core HR transactional processes and an expanding strategic process capability.
