We have been speaking with micro and small businesses for the past 5 years about their HR outsourcing options. Obviously, we thing the best model is a Total HR outsourcing model, such as PEO or ASO. But some small businesses insist on getting their own HRIS. This is usually a very costly mistake. The price-tag on these systems is often a roadblock in and of itself. But the real issue is who is going to service and maintain the system after purchase?
We recommend taking a hard look at PEO or ASO or employee leasing companies, as they have already bought the software and are running it for the benefit of their client companies. At a much more reasonable price.
