10 Ways Wise Can Help Prepare You For Your HCM Implementation

Having the right support in place before implementing a human capital management (HCM) system is essential to a successful and smooth transition. At Wise, we understand the challenges organizations face during the implementation process because our consultants have provided hundreds of clients with software-certified, informed implementation support.

Below, we’ll explore how having an experienced professional on your side can streamline your HCM software implementation process and 10 ways Wise Consulting by RSM can help you prepare.

Do you need help with HCM implementation?

While it’s not impossible to implement a new HCM system on your own, having experienced professionals on your side who understand the ins and outs of implementation and your human resource/payroll needs can make the process more accurate, timely, and result in better outcomes. Whether you’ve just started out and are analyzing different systems or you’re set up and need help with go-live, payroll coverage and change management, we can help. 

Our certified professionals know how to build a system that is configured to your company’s unique needs. This directly influences implementation outcomes and how well your new system will meet your organizational goals. Having a Wise consultant by your side to guide your team with best practices is a smart investment.

Here are 10 ways Wise Consulting by RSM can help you prepare for your HCM implementation:

  1. Comprehensive needs assessment
    At Wise, we get to know your business’s unique needs by conducting a thorough utilization assessment. Analyzing your existing processes and systems helps us recommend an implementation plan that aligns with your goals, sets realistic expectations and ensures seamless integration for all team members. 
  2. Project management experience
    HCM implementation requires effective project management skills if timelines, budgets and deliverables are to be met. Wise brings a wealth of experience in managing HCM implementations, applying industry best practices and sharing key knowledge with your team to keep your project on track and minimize disruptions throughout all critical steps. 
  3. Custom configuration
    Every organization has its own set of business processes, rules and workflows. The Wise team’s implementation support includes customizing your HCM system to align with your specific requirements and future goals. From defining data fields to configuring approval workflows, Wise ensures that your system is tailored to your needs. 
  4. Data migration assistance
    Transferring data from legacy systems to a new HCM platform accurately can be complex and time-consuming. Wise’s implementation team offers technical experience in data migration, ensuring a seamless transition while maintaining data integrity and accuracy. 
  5. User training and adoption
    A successful HCM implementation depends quite a bit on whether users actually adopt it. Wise provides end-user training to ensure that your employees understand how to effectively access their new system’s features. Empowering your workforce with the necessary skills and knowledge helps drive user adoption to maximize the return on your HCM investment.

  6. Change management support
    Implementing a new HCM system often requires changes to existing internal processes and workflows. Wise recognizes the importance of change management and offers support throughout the implementation process. From communication strategies to stakeholder engagement, Wise helps navigate the organizational changes required for a successful implementation.

  7. Integration with existing systems
    Many organizations have existing systems in place that need to integrate with the new HCM system. Wise’s implementation support includes seamless integration with other applications such as payroll, time and attendance, and talent management systems, enabling data exchange and process automation. 
  8. Testing and quality assurance
    Wise conducts rigorous testing and quality assurance checks at every stage to ensure a smooth implementation. Identifying and resolving potential issues early on helps minimize the risk of system disruptions and greatly increases the odds of having a successful go-live and post-go-live experience.

  9. Post-implementation optimization
    Wise’s support doesn’t end with go-live. The team provides ongoing optimization support, continuously evaluating your HCM system’s performance and identifying opportunities for fine tuning. Our industry-certified payroll team can support payroll coverage for the first few payroll cycles to ensure accurate payroll continuity while any kinks get smoothed out. Whether it’s refining processes, enhancing reporting capabilities or incorporating new features, Wise helps you unlock the full potential of your HCM system to best support your business. 

  10. Dedicated support team
    Throughout the implementation process and beyond, Wise provides a dedicated support team to address any questions or issues that may arise. An entire system-certified team of implementation professionals are just a phone call or email away, ensuring that you have the support you need when you need it.

Implementing an HCM system can be a transformative journey for your organization, and having the proper support is paramount to enabling the capabilities and performance you envision your new system delivering. Wise offers comprehensive implementation support, including needs assessment, project management, custom configuration, data migration assistance, training, change management support, system integration, testing, payroll continuity and ongoing optimization.

With Wise’s experience and dedication, you can confidently embark on your HCM implementation journey, knowing you have a trusted provider by your side.
