Still going through time-consuming HR processes? Do you still file for expense claims and apply for leaves using paper forms that require approvals via physical signatures? These are outdated HR practices that should be eliminated before venturing beyond HR operations into what matters most, employee engagement. 

HR digitalisation is important as it: 

  • Reduces time spent on repetitive, mechanical administrative tasks
  • Counting leave balances or tabulating employee’s total expense claims on Excel sheets.
  • Allows businesses to focus on improving employee experience and engagement instead. 

And more!

Today, we compare 2 popular HR systems in Malaysia, altHR and Swingvy:

altHR is an all-in-one HR software that provides features from core HR operations to employee engagement on top of features to help your business navigate the New Normal way of work.

You will receive a fully guided tour within the altHR dashboard, video tutorials to setup and use each feature, a comprehensive knowledge base or assistance from our customer success team throughout your time with altHR.
