The challenge


How can business owners free up their HR to focus on their real skills – whether they are in the office, spread across different sites or working remotely, HR and payroll processes are very document heavy. There will always be a need for these records, but access to them needs to be instant and accessible to the team regardless of location, at the first time of asking, if your business is to avoid any legal, monetary and reputational risks.


The change


We can remember a time when all of our own HR documents were stored in a massive manual filing system, which is fairly routine among local businesses. Paperwork had to be manually organised and indexed, which took constant attention and time spent locating rarely used files increased as the system grew. Eventually, our paperwork outgrew the storage space dedicated to it. It was only when we started to look at the cost of rental office space that we made the decision enough was enough, and another solution was needed, not more spread. If your business runs HR from a locked filing cabinet you will know the cost, effort and operational risk associated with this antiquated business practice.

We took the opportunity to move across to a Managed Document Solution. With DocuWare, you get a  tailored-made electronic document manager that automates all your physical documents; start by scanning physical copies, giving you a digital copy that is securely saved, indexed and organised in a central database for lighting quick retrieval. Easily capture, store, manage, process, share and track documents. You control who has access to certain document types, tasks lists.


With DocuWare, the leading Document Management Solution available in the market, your HR, whether it's one person or a team, can see huge benefits across these core areas:



Manage the influx of CVs into a single centralised folder as soon as they are emailed, received via website or recruiter, or scanned into the system if handed in person. Preconfigure the workflow so you can send automated invite to interview or rejection templates to candidates by clicking yes or no on the inbound CV.  



Minimise onboarding glitches by digitising the workflow so that requests for P60s, NINOs and other onboarding paperwork can be requested on time and follow-up on outstanding documents. Book laptops and other equipment with alerts built into the workflow so that everyone is ready go on day one.



Automate your payroll process. Send out automatically from your ERP to each employee on any given date in the month. Set-up weekly, four weekly or monthly.
