Am I locked into a contract?

It is a 30-day rolling contract, so it is in your control.

How easy is it to set up the software?

The system is fairly simple to set up; the basic setup/going live can be achieved relatively quickly. A fully established myhrtoolkit account with all documents in the system will take longer depending on the availability of the documents online.

With good quality data availability and a standard “no document” set up, a 50 head deployment could go live within a day.

What if a server fails?

We have a 1-hour service guarantee with our hosting provider, meaning that 60 minutes is the maximum length of time the service would ever be unavailable following diagnosis.

How does the billing work?

Customers are billed on a monthly basis starting on the day we activate the licence. They are then billed on this date each month. The first bill needs paying within 7 days. We require payment in advance and so encourage customers to align their payment method to our billing cycle.
