Our Approach

We don’t believe a one size fits all approach is right for everyone and therefore it is essential we understand more about you and your organisation so we can deliver an implementation approach that works perfectly for you.

We start the implementation project by detailing the scope before defining and agreeing on the approach, outputs, deliverables and timeline of the project.  At the same time, the budget and resources required for the project are agreed upon.  A dedicated Tugela implementation project manager is assigned to your implementation, ensuring you maximise your ROI by using the Sage People HR System to its full potential.

We track the project online in real-time for you to monitor and provide input. Depending on the size and complexity of the project, it may be managed on-site or remotely as agreed.

Lastly, we complete the project with a post-implementation review which ensures that the outputs and deliverables are signed off.

Implementation Methodology: How do we run our projects?

Every Sage People project is implemented with a tried and tested process, with a ‘gateway sign-off' after every step to ensure that we are in sync and ready to move on to the next stage.

Why Use an HR System Implementation Partner?

One question we are frequently asked is – why should a business investing in a new HR System use an implementation partner? Here are the main benefits of using an HRIS implementation partner as we see it:

  • Broader HRIS and Technology Expertise

    A partner can bring experience of different sectors, systems and approaches. These elements can help deploy the new HRIS system more efficiently avoiding pitfalls that cause delay. They can also bring impartiality to configuration discussions and the impact of those choices on the organisation’s HR system. This infusion of specialist expertise can help avoid the “If I knew what I know today, I would have done things differently” situations.

  • Service and Speed

    Partners often provide a more flexible, personal service especially for small or mid-sized firms that are not likely to be the biggest client. A partner’s specialist skills will also speed up the implementation process so that internal resource can be focused on adoption and training rather than navigating the learning curve of the setting up phase.

  • More Choice

    Selecting from a pool of HR System implementation partners allows you to select a partner that you are comfortable working with. This personal chemistry between the internal team and the outsourced team members is crucial to meeting project deadlines, translating business requirements and aiding in knowledge transfer.

  • Immediate Credibility

    A credible HR System partner with in-depth knowledge of the HRIS space and best practice can accelerate buy-in from internal stakeholders. Usually this works best when the partner has a broad understanding of processes and issues pertinent to stakeholders. This also helps to facilitate take up of the system among users.

  • Committed Preferred Supplier

    A third party HRIS implementation partner that is committed to the system, has an in-depth understanding of the system’s capabilities and limitations which is a beneficial in getting the most of a system
