Bosch Rexroth Ltd replace their HR software


The incumbent Human Resource Management system previously deployed at Bosch Rexroth Ltd was not able to co-exist with the Company’s overall IT strategy moving forward.  So, as part of the Group’s roll-out programme, a replacement HR system was needed that had to be compatible with emerging Microsoft technologies such as SQL2008 and Windows 7.


The timing was good - having used their existing product for a number of years, there were suspicions being realised within the HR department that technological advancements made by many software authors signified greater rewards being offered by current HR software applications.

Bosch Rexroth is now able to take advantage of the much needed additional in-built standard functionality of their new system, People Inc.  With a focus on utilising much of the proactive workflow capability, for day to day events such as new starter notifications, return to work and exit interviews, the new system will help to improve the effectiveness of common HR and management processes.

To make the transition as painless as possible, both financially and operationally, a data transfer routine was written to automatically transfer all employee related data from the old system into the new one, which also replicated all data screen changes made in the previous system to People Inc. This significantly reduced the amount of consultancy time needed to complete the project and meant that the entire transition was quick, easy and therefore inexpensive.

The additional ‘big wins’ for the Company will be in introducing this new technology platform to the business to assist in two labour intensive subject areas that their old system wasn’t wholly capable of, unless they adopted additional and expensive bolt-on modules; the built-in ‘Recruitment & Resourcing’ and ‘Training Administration’ modules are now being rolled out within the business to help to further reduce administration and HR Support costs.
