What types of company use a HR Management App?

All sorts. Companies and organisations across a whole host of sectors rely on cloud-based software to fulfill their HR needs.

From start-up companies to huge corporate bodies, it is not just the HR Management App that has been specifically developed to suit the requirements of businesses – each type of Breathe HR software is designed to streamline admin processes, bringing HR into the modern age.

We like to keep things simple.

That's why we've put together two guides to show you and your decision-makers the fantastic benefits of Breathe.

Cloud-based app

Is a cloud-based app better than using desktop software?

Generally speaking, cloud-based HR solutions – such as Breathe – provide many more benefits than traditional desktop HR software. They effectively are an upgrade, utilising technological advances to take the stress out of often time-consuming HR processes.

The only real downside to them is the need for a high-speed internet connection. However, the HR app will still operate offline should a provider ever go down unexpectedly, meaning you’ll have access to your company data whenever and wherever you need it.

How much does it cost?

Cloud-based software has seen accessibility to HR resources improve substantially. Previously, HR software cost a lot to purchase up front and even more to install, often requiring the expertise of IT specialists. Nowadays, that has all changed, and cloud-based HR software is now much more affordable to buy and run.

Breathe’s monthly subscription fees start at just £18 per month (excluding VAT), with the price you pay dependent on the number of employees you have. 

Is there a set-up fee?

No. Unlike the traditional model of needing to pay for HR software up front, most HR cloud solutions now charge for them on a monthly subscription basis. Here at Breathe, we won’t charge you for setting up your system, and we won’t charge cancellation fees either.

How easy is it to access data on the app?

Accessing your data is super quick and easy. All you need is a device with an active internet connection 

Where is my HR system and data hosted?

All employee data and HR records are safely stored on highly secure remote servers in our UK-based data centre. This centre is fitted with complete CCTV coverage, motion sensors, reinforced doors, controlled key storage systems and other additional physical controls, so you can rest assured your information will be well-protected.

How do I get started?
