OMESTI Group technology partner Microimage HCM Asia sent a clear message to top HR professionals in Malaysia at the launch of its first-of-a-kind HCM Cloud Solution: Cloud, Social, Mobile & Analytics are disrupting the way businesses are run and it will be essential for organisations to remodel their processes in order to meet these challenges head on.

“Disrupt or be disrupted,” said Harsha Purasinghe, Director of Microimage HCM Asia. “Companies need to rapidly respond and transform in order to attract the best talent, keep employees engaged, enable smoother collaboration across the organisation and manage performance,” said the tech entrepreneur behind the new solution. “Taking HR into the digital era is the only way organisations will be able to keep pace.” By 2020, more than 50 percent of the global workforce will constitute millennials, a generation that associates with digital technology, he added.

Microimage has been in the HR solutions business for over 15 years, transforming the HR space through technology, from personnel management to human resource management to integrated talent management with an evolving HCM platform.

“Now we have come to an era which calls for a digital transformation,” said Purasinghe. “We have wiped the slate clean and come up with a fully interactive and visually appealing platform, which leverages the power of key digital technology drivers.”

Moving to digital platforms via cloud, mobile, social and analytics will facilitate more open communication, instant feedback and recognition, more frequent assessments and social collaboration towards reinventing the performance review process. Organisations can leverage video, social and mobile to drive on-demand learning anytime anywhere on any device. Knowledge sharing and continuous learning for employees will also become far more streamlined.

The all-new Microimage HCM Cloud, which was first launched to audiences in Asia last month, enables companies to maximise the full potential of digital while receiving a consumer grade user experience that is intuitive and interactive. The solution works seamlessly across all devices including mobile. “HCM Cloud enables seamless scaling across functionalities, where organisations can further innovate and deliver compelling services to all their stakeholders. This is true digital transformation of HR,” he said.

The solution offers a comprehensive platform from Core HR to talent management. Features include advanced organisation set-up for multi-country/group structures, advanced workflows, configurable business rules, natural language query and people analytics across all functions. Apps for for iOS and Android provide fully mobile functionality.

HCM Cloud runs on Microsoft Azure Cloud service, selected for the performance, security and efficiency that it offers, key considerations for deploying a solution in the HR space where confidentiality of sensitive data is paramount.

Dinesh Nair, Director, Developer Experience & Evangelism, Microsoft Malaysia, who was one of the speakers at the Launch, said:

“In an increasingly mobile-first, cloud-first world, cloud computing continues to change the way businesses reach their customers, and in today’s hyper-competitive environment, ISVs are on the leading edge of this change, by lending the necessary expertise to help ready customers make the necessary transition to cloud.

“For this reason, we are very excited to be working with Microimage to bring their world-class solutions to the global marketplace. With this partnership, organisations of all sizes looking for speed and agility in cloud computing will be able to turn to Microimage to leverage 21st century innovations borne from the cloud itself.”

Microimage was first identified by OMESTI in 2014 as an innovative technology partner in the HR space. Microimage HCM Asia was subsequently established in Malaysia to bring cutting-edge HCM solutions to South East Asia and beyond. Ms Mah Xian-Zhen, OMESTI Group Executive Director, said, “This new solution brings an entirely new level of sophistication and intuitive working for HR professionals that will help them engage with the talent of tomorrow. We are delighted to be able to bring HCM Cloud to organisations across the region.”
