Microimage HCM Asia Shines Spotlight On Tech Challenges Facing HR Leaders

Microimage HCM Asia, a joint venture partner of OMESTI Group, flagged up the many technology challenges faced by HR Leaders in today’s market at the recent inaugural MIHRM Technology Congress in Kuala Lumpur.

Harsha Purasinghe, Director of Microimage HCM Asia said, “This was a great opportunity to share technology challenges that HR Leaders face today due to disruptive technologies. Unlike before, HR professionals today need to understand the right technology and then be able to deploy it in their organisations to attract, manage, retain talent in a complex business environment with a growing next generation workforce.”

Microimage HCM Asia took part in the 3-day Congress along with other industry specialists to share perspectives and experiences with the 250-strong delegate audience. A broad range of issues were covered, including the role of the HR Professional and how to transition to strategic Business Advisor, the creation of compelling talentattraction and retention programmes, and building a more effective bridge between academia and industry.

As highlighted during the presentation by Microimage, Asian businesses face multiple challenges with HR systems. “Some organisations are weighed down by legacy systems that were designed decades ago. Others are hampered by lack of centralisation due to multiple systems being in place,” says Harsha. “Equally important is the need to address the dynamic expectations of the next generation workforce and to have access to better HR analytics.”

He went on to emphasise the importance of understanding key technology shifts that have the power to enable HR to align talent with business needs. “Effective use of cloud computing, smartphone apps, and social media for productive collaboration and better employee engagement are just some of the key technology enablers that bring greater visibility to talent management,” he added.

Microimage HCM offers a comprehensive suite of enterprise-class HCM functionality in a modular deployment model. The 14 individual modules cater to all requirements, from operational HR, Talent Management to HCM Analytics. The system also offers multi-channel employee service delivery utilising web, mobile and kiosk platforms. The HCM system is offered as an on-premise licence, as a managed service and over the cloud as a SaaS offering. A bundled HCM offering is also available as a pure cloud solution for Small & Medium businesses.

In addition to a diverse client portfolio in Sri Lanka and other Asian markets, Microimage has also deployed its multi-module HCM suite for one of the leading financial institutions in Malaysia and for a global accountancy major.

Microimage HCM Asia operates from Kuala Lumpur as its regional ASEAN headquarters for marketing, sales & distribution, and implementation & support for the full range of its HCM solutions.  “Since forming the joint venture with OMESTI last year, we have already established our presence in a number of ASEAN territories by forming strong partnerships. Over the course of the next 2-3 years, we intend to cover the entire ASEAN region,” noted Harsha.  The company also partners systems integrators and HR service providers.
