Ability to integrate Ciphr’s core HR system with other business applications will ‘transform HR teams into commercial enablers’

Ciphr is today (13 June) launching Ciphr Connect: an ecosystem of trusted business applications that integrate seamlessly with Ciphr’s HR and recruitment solutions, connecting people data across the organisation and enabling HR departments to work more strategically and effectively.

Commenting on the launch at the CIPD HR and Recruitment Software Show 2018, Chris Berry, managing director at Ciphr, said: “In many organisations, HR is a strategic partner that is closely involved with functions across the business. Linking an organisation’s specialist systems together via Ciphr Connect will give HR departments better visibility of crucial people metrics, enabling teams to make smarter, more timely, decisions.”

He added: “Ciphr Connect links and provides connectivity between Ciphr and an organisation’s other systems – whether that’s so they can measure the effectiveness of L&D programmes, discover the correlation between employee engagement and wellbeing, or verify the work history and identity of new recruits – giving them an integrated, holistic view of both people effectiveness and organisational performance.”

Megan Hope, partner manager at Ciphr, said: “Integrating your core people system with other HR, L&D and business applications will free up your busy HR team to spend more time on the strategic people initiatives that really matter to your organisation, transforming the department from an administrative function to a commercial enabler.”

Ciphr Connect launch partners include:

Ciphr Connect’s launch is accompanied by a specially commissioned white paper, Better together: the future of HR systems integration, which features the results of exclusive research carried out by YouGov on behalf of Ciphr into UK HR professionals’ attitudes towards HR systems integration.

It also includes commentary and advice on topics such as the benefits of integration HR and other business systems, common pitfalls of systems projects, and the emerging need for more technically minded HR professionals.

Featured experts include Jordan Mori, managing partner at Hensen Associates; HRIS specialist Jon Morgan; Kate Wadia, managing director at Phase 3 Consulting; Kathryn Kendall, chief people officer at Benefex; David Wilson, CEO at Fosway Group; Nigel Dias, managing director of 3n Strategy and David Heard, director at Abintegro.
