It seems like everything is ‘cloud-based’ now, but what does that actually mean? And what benefit can you gain from using cloud-based HR software?
The term ‘cloud-based’ describes software or services that run on hardware you don't manage. You don't even need to know anything about it! It still exists somewhere and is every bit as real as the data stored on your hard drive, but it’s not managed by you.
Many cloud-based services use technology such as replication to store data in more than one location. For example, myhrtoolkit replicates all customer files across multiple locations. This redundancy makes your files more available and resilient.

Why choose cloud HR software?
Why is moving to the cloud important and useful for you?
- Lower cost – as you’re not responsible for the hardware or software, there’s no hefty initial outlay. With monthly payments and no long-term contracts, there’s very little financial risk.
- Less hassle – you don’t need to manage the software or the hardware. We ensure your data is as secure as possible, and available whenever you need it. We also have friendly customer support staff to help you with whatever you need.
- More effective – HR can be complex. We review and update our application to ensure that it reflects the needs of our customers. We also make sure it complies with applicable UK legislation. By using a cloud based HR system you get far more bang for your buck.
