Cloud-Based HR Benefits Management: Key Challenges

HR Tech Outlook | Thursday, June 24, 2021

Some cloud-based benefits administration platforms may be missing key features like reimbursement strategies and training programs. Thus, many businesses choose to employ various platforms.

Fremont, CA: Since the widespread adoption of cloud-based software, a wide range of businesses have benefited from the opportunities it has created, notably in the area of data management. HR practitioners have also been able to rethink how they see benefits management thanks to cloud technologies. Because cloud-based benefits administration platforms are still in their infancy in terms of popularity and benefits, there are some issues that businesses should be aware of when selecting a system. Here are two challenges of cloud-based HR benefits management:

24/7 Accessibility

Although using the cloud allows access from anywhere at any time, there is one drawback: the cloud depends on Internet storage, which necessitates an Internet connection. An internet or power outage in a building could potentially pose complications during crises or urgent situations. Employees may be unable to access their information, such as healthcare information until they can locate another Internet source. Choose a provider that offers tailored smartphone apps that integrate easily with your company's benefits strategy. These apps don't require WiFi and can instead rely on a carrier connection.

Platforms are Not Always All-Encompassing

It's challenging to discover a single solution that can handle everything. Some cloud-based benefits administration platforms may be missing key features like reimbursement strategies and training programs. As such, many businesses choose to employ various platforms. If not adequately managed, multiple platforms might result in a fragmented benefits and rewards experience for employees. Choose a vendor that can deliver best-of-breed solutions to fulfill all of your company's needs.
