As the global market becomes increasingly competitive, modern businesses must stay on the cutting edge of technological efficiency. That being said, many companies, despite adopting new and emerging technologies, do not feel that their operations have become more efficient. A new report from Economist Impact revealed that about 50% of respondents feel they aren’t gaining significant value from their existing tech investments. And about 46% of respondents said their companies don’t have the internal talent to utilize these advanced technologies. In most cases, the technology is not to blame but rather the lack of skilled talent to effectively choose, implement, and support these tools.
Implementing HR automation and integration technology is no easy feat. You need a dedicated team with the appropriate expertise, a resource that many companies don’t have. Lack of adequate knowledge about the processes could hinder you from achieving set implementation milestones. While training your employees to run these projects may seem like an easy solution, it will only cost your business time and money. With over 15 years of experience with a broad selection of software systems, RJR has the expertise to ensure that your solutions are up and running in no time.
Before implementation can begin, you must choose the right solution for your business needs. While organizations are eager to hop on the HR tech bandwagon and reap its benefits, many companies make the mistake of choosing the wrong solution. Their teams don’t have the skills or the knowledge to judge which application is the best for them. By partnering with RJ Reliance, you can ensure that your solutions are configured to meet your firm’s specific business rules and practices. Our tools are highly customizable and flexible to client use-cases.
It is important to note that HR technology implementation does not end at deployment, and maintenance is still required even after a project goes live. Automation and integration solutions can become complicated if you don’t have a system that keeps cloud and on-premise infrastructure updated in real-time. There’s also a good chance that you’ll need to replace your installations as you become aware of updated versions. At RJ Reliance, we handle the maintenance process so that you don’t have to. Our solutions are deployed in the cloud and fully managed to ensure that our customers are satisfied and that processes are running smoothly.
Automation software is a lot more complicated than it appears, and these projects often fail. At RJ Reliance, we help our customers avoid this fate through our Virtual Practitioner Service. Easily scalable and powerful enough for any range of tasks, VP bots will log in to your systems and get to work just like any other user. By eliminating human-made errors, you can free up time for employees to focus on complex, hands-on processes. RJ Reliance works with you to identify inefficiencies with your business and implement the necessary automation to alleviate them.

It is no secret that remote work is here to stay. While the work from home model began out of necessity during the pandemic, it has become a preference for many due to the flexibility and work/life balance it provides. The long-term shift towards remote work represents a positive shift for both the employee and the employer. Here are some reasons why it also makes sense from a business perspective.
Remote work frees you from geographic confines, unlocking a much larger talent pool. You can hire the best and brightest individuals from anywhere in the world, allowing you to improve your overall skillset and cut training costs.
Keeping your employees happy is the key to a successful team, especially in the age of the Great Resignation. Work from home models have become increasingly popular among employees since flexibility emerged as a top priority for today’s workforce. According to a study conducted by McKinsey, when people have the chance to work flexibly, 87 percent of them take it. Remote work can reduce turnover rates and help you hold onto top talent.
A survey by ConnectSolutions found that 77% of those who work remotely at least a few times per month show increased productivity, with 30% doing more work in less time and 24% doing more work in the same period of time. With the ability to work in an environment of their choosing, while also avoiding the stress of commuting or office politics, remote workers focus their attention on their jobs and get more done.
Remote teams allow you to save money and boost your profitability in many ways. Access to a wider talent pool allows you to hire top talent that costs less to train. You can also cut operational costs by hiring from countries with more advantageous payroll laws. Finally, removing a physical office space from the equation saves you money on real estate.
Moving to a remote work model doesn’t come without its challenges but turning to technology can make the transition as seamless as possible. At RJ Reliance, we can help you set up personalized systems and processes to help manage your employees and assure success in the work-from-home model. Obtain consistency and accuracy while giving you more time to focus on your employees and essential business functions.

Last month, our founder and EVP, Robert Fulkerson, joined DealHub’s RevAmp podcast to discuss how technology has shaped RJ Reliance’s consulting services and the HCM (Human Capital Management) industry. You can listen to the full interview on DealHub’s website. Here’s what you missed.
Fulkerson highlights how over the last 20-30 years, we’ve seen a drastic change in the availability of Human Capital Management solutions and the methods used to implement them. Traditionally, a company would be limited to an enterprise platform that encompasses several different HCM products. Fast forward to the development of SaaS-based software and cloud-based service options, companies can pick and choose several HR and payroll platforms based on their specific needs. A new problem is then introduced, “How does one integrate these disconnected systems?” That’s where RJ Reliance comes in. We serve as the middleman, understanding the various HCM products, how they communicate, and how to create a robust solution to connect them.
Fulkerson touches on the inherent inefficiencies that can be found within any organization, especially as it grows. With organizational growth comes added complexity and manual processes. To prevent businesses from wasting valuable time and money on resources on these tasks, RJ Reliance can automate these processes. These solutions allow clients to streamline their operations and scale more easily in an age that demands technological agility.
In an era of digital transformation, companies that can effectively capture data, analyze it, and create actionable insights will have the greatest competitive advantage. RJ Reliance’s mission goes beyond automation and integration - we want our clients to gain visibility into their data and be able to make changes at a management level as quickly as possible.
Fulkerson has worked with clients anywhere on the life spectrum, and one area of weakness he typically sees in the industry is organizational change management. RJ Reliance recognizes that an HCM tool is only as effective as its implementation. That’s why we have OCM experts on our team to help clients establish a methodology surrounding communication, stakeholder management, and training.
Fulkerson wraps up by discussing the factors that make a good client. First, a good client understands the complexity of a new HCM technology implementation, and the change management efforts they should instill to make the transition as seamless as possible. Second, a good client can forecast who on their team will be involved in the implementation process and where they need RJ Reliance’s help backfilling those positions to free up time for those individuals. Finally, a good client acknowledges that they cannot do these implementations on their own and are willing to accept the help of a third party like RJ Reliance.
