50 Best Companies to Watch 2022
The success and growth of any organization depend on how well its employees are treated and managed. Several organizations are trying different ways to amplify employee management and experience strategies. This is where HR software really shines. Using HR software, employee management becomes less about routine actions, which can be automated through the software, and more about delivering an excellent experience that will keep employees motivated, hungry for growth, and happy. Every aspect of your HR operations, from onboarding to offboarding, can be performed from a centralized location with HR software. It takes care of all the administrative work so that you can take care of your employees.

Hirezon’s first product was the Interview Exchange Applicant Tracking System (ATS).

The following excerpts are taken from a conversation with Naray Viswanathan, Founder and President of Hirezon Corporation.
Q. Finding the right HR software can be a real challenge and a time-consuming process. In a marketplace filled with providers offering what appears to be similar products, how do you believe to be the best fit for your customers?
Whether our clients need Applicant Tracking System (ATS), Onboarding, Faculty / Adjunct Contract Management, Performance Evaluation, and Employee Referral application, our HR solutions are modular based so our clients can strategically implement the solution(s) that best fits their most immediate needs. Once their most pressing issues have been rectified, it allows them to look at their “long-term” goals, implement other modules as needed and have a seamlessly integrated HR platform.
With over 20+ years of experience, primarily focused on the Higher Education industry, we understand the unique needs of Higher-Ed Institutions. We provide our customers with the best 24/7 customer support in the business. We also offer free weekly live webinars focusing on how clients can utilize our application even more efficiently. Through these webinars and our annual user conference, customer feedback gives us valuable insight on how to enhance our existing products and/or develop new products to meet their ever-changing needs. Our proven SaaS architecture allows us to customize and configure specific requirements to satisfy each and every customer.
Q. What is unique about your software and services?
First and foremost, our implementation timeline is second-to-none. We could implement any of our modules in as little as 4-6 weeks, whether you have an existing system in place or coming from a manual paper-based process. Having over 100+ Higher Education customers, there is very little we haven’t seen from a recruiting, onboarding, workflow, or performance evaluation perspective. Higher Education is unique, and our flexible configuration options allow us to handle any process, no matter how complex. In addition, we offer numerous ways for our customers to seek additional assistance, including phone, email, Zoom meetings, in-person training, and our industry-leading, 24/7 online help desk.
Recently, with more and more classes being taught online or in a hybrid format, Faculty and Adjuncts are coming to campus locations less and less, forcing institutions to think differently and more strategically about how they can help onboard these individuals and issue appointment/reappointment letters and contracts. We have seen a massive increase in the utilization of our onboarding/contracts and forms workflow modules to do precisely that.
Q. How do you handle specific company requirements?
We understand just how unique each Higher Education Institution is, and our configurable modules allow us to meet their requirements internally and from an end-user perspective.
As an example, based on customer feedback, we discovered every institution is facing a common challenge in talent acquisition. To address this issue, we developed MyReferred™—a brand new comprehensive community-centric employee, student, and alumni referral system. This dramatically enhances the referral process by tapping into faculty, staff, students, and alumni as a source of high-quality potential employees. MyReferred™ enables institutions to attract top candidates overnight efficiently.
Using custom profiles, resumes, skillsets, questionnaires, and work-related supervisor or colleague referrals by institution-specific internal resources. The highlight of MyReferred™ is its ease of use. Using the latest social networking techniques and innovative one-to-one marketing functionality, MyReferred™ makes it simple for institutions to create ongoing dialog and build relationships with top talent, thereby increasing their available talent pool and reducing job vacancy advertising costs.
Q. Does the software integrate smoothly with existing HR systems?
Yes, our system architecture and standards-based design are compatible with the widest variety of platforms and technologies and support integration with any 3rd party products.
Q. Will you improve HR productivity by streamlining manual processes?
Yes, our clients benefit from vastly improved hiring efficiency while allowing flexibility and scalability for future growth. With on-demand solutions, industry-leading implementation time, comprehensive reporting, and top-class, real-person (no bots) support, we help our customers to streamline their HR process with our software offerings.
