Automating Human Resource Functions: The Benefits of Paperless HR

If you’ve been thinking about automating your human resources department, you’re not alone. Many companies have started using technology to help eliminate time-consuming and inefficient human capital management processes.

Because HR involves so much paperwork – think W2s, direct deposit forms, and confidentiality agreements, just to name a few – digital document management can make a big difference. As automation tools make your onboarding (and offboarding!) workflows simpler and more intuitive, you’ll spend less time on tedious administration and more time managing your workforce.

What Tasks Can You Automate with Human Resources Software?

With the right technologies, you can automate a variety of common HR processes. IntelliChief can provide you with automated solutions for:

  • Electronic employee files
  • Employee onboarding
  • Employee termination
  • Benefit eligibility tracking
  • Employee status changes
  • Performance reviews
  • Records management
  • Expense claim approvals
  • Non-compete signoffs
  • Personnel action process

With our scalable HCM automation software, you can start with one or two simple applications – such as creating electronic employee records – then gradually transition to a completely paperless approach. Over time, you’ll be able to spend significantly less time on administrative HR functions.
