      A Detailed & Comprehensive List of:

Human Resource Information (HRIS) System Features

      Pre-defined human resource and payroll outsourcing RFP criteria ensure no important business requirements or outsourcing features "slip through the cracks".  All are in a quantitative format that guarantees vendor responses will be meaningful, consistent, and easy to compare. All questions are professionally prepared by application specialists to address BOTH the STANDARD features and EXCEPTION CASE outsourcing functions required.


      Identify BOTH HR & Payroll Outsourcing Features Availability

      Unlike other RFPs that try (and fail) to gather useful solutions data about complex human resource & payroll outsourcing features, RFP Masters are not constrained to the use of summary-level "Yes" or "No" answers. This RFP Master uses a Outsource Feature Support Matrix (FSM) that identify feature AVAILABILITY. This RFP Master function is useful during both the human resource & payroll outsourcing selection AND the system implementation phases of large HR projects because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable outsourcing functionality and vendor invoicing.


      Determine the Risk & Supportability of Proposed

HR & Payroll Outsourcing Solutions

      Unlike other HR & Payroll Outsourcing RFPs, an RFP Master can illustrate potential support problems (and risk) inherent in vendor outsourcing proposals. The Feature Support Matrix (FSM) used in each RFP Master categorizes the inherent risk posed for each criteria, and uses that information to calculate the SUPPORTABILITY INDEX for each vendor RFP response. This RFP Master function is useful during both the outsourcing selection AND the implementation phases of a large human resource & payroll system because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable outsourcing functionality and vendor invoicing.


      Vendor Response Input Validation.

      Vendors must answer each RFP question by choosing from a pre-defined list of possible responses. See below for an example of this drop-down list. This forces all vendors to respond to each human resource & payroll outsourcing question in a consistent, standard manner. Eliminates the days of time typically wasted trying to compare the inconsistent or incomplete vendor responses obtained by using traditional, non-quantitative RFP questions! Ensures vendor proposals are easy to compare and evaluate!


      Color-Coded, "Apples-to-Apples" Comparison of Proposed Solution

HR & Payroll Outsourcing Comparison

      These comparison matrices automatically change vendor response cell background color to GREEN, YELLOW, or RED, to reflect how favorable each response is to your needs! Compared to the tedious task of reviewing hundreds of mono-color Yes/No answers, these colored responses allow problem areas to be spotted more easily, and risk assessment is made much more accurate. All required response comparison matrices are included and ready-to-use! Quickly and easily compare human resource & payroll outsourcing proposals side-by-side, feature by feature, in detailed HR & Payroll Outsourcing comparisons you control! Keep your project on-schedule and under-budget.


      Evaluation Ratios

      Use an extensive set of ratio calculations to compare HR and payroll vendor proposals quickly and efficiently.


      Weighted Grade Score Graph

      Compares the Weighted Grade Point Score calculated for each proposed human resource & payroll outsourcing solution. This is calculated as follows: The HR and payroll vendor response to each RFP question is assigned an un-weighted "raw" score. This raw score is then multiplied by the weight factor you entered previously (default = 1) for that outsourcing RFP question to calculate the weighted score for each response. All of these individual scores are then totaled for use in this comparison. This score is essentially a measure of how well a HRIS and payroll fits your business and outsourcing needs, prioritized by the weight (importance level) you assigned to each question in the RFP. In essence, this score measures the SUITABILITY of each proposed human resource & payroll outsourcing to your overall requirements. . NOTE this score measures just outsourcing functionality, and does not include any measure of vendor background, expertise, support, or programming ability.


      Feature Delivery Method Comparison:

      An analysis of how each hr & payroll vendor is proposing to deliver the outsourcing solution feature/function contained in their HR & payroll business process outsourcing proposal. The graph below shows the percentage that is Fully Supported, the percentage to be done via Report Writer, a Configuration Parameter, or Third-Party add-in, versus the percentage to be done via Custom Coding (Scripting / Programming). This information is very useful in terms of identifying RISK, since a Fully Supported (and tested) HRIS & payroll feature presents far less risk than that same HRIS feature done as a "custom programming" task. Also, see the Supportability Index, which sums up these detail risk factors.


      HRIS Supportability Index Graph:

      The Supportability Index is a forecast of how much human resource & payroll outsourcing support and maintenance may be required to keep each proposed outsourcing service running at full potential over it's lifetime. This score is determined by how much custom coding is required to implement the proposed HRIS outsourcing, and which business processes depend on the customized outsourcing solution.


      Overall Comparison Graph:

      This graph compares both the Weighted Grade (Suitability) Score, Supportability Index, and the Outsourcing Vendor Capabilities Profile side-by-side for easy reference. It is important to see how much custom coding is in a proposed human resource & payroll outsourcing system that also has a high Weighted Score, along with the Vendor Profile. The more custom code, the higher the risk posed by that HR and payroll solution.


      Vendor Profile Score Graph:

      The backgrounds, expertise, capabilities, and certifications of each vendor is obtained in the Vendor Global Issues section of the HR & Payroll outsourcing RFP. The human resource and payroll vendor responses to this section are totaled separately from the outsourcing functionality topics, and this data is used to calculate the "Vendor Profile Score". The higher the score, the more CAPABILITIES a vendor is probably going to be.
