<p>Decideware, an on-demand software company offering Human Resources solutions, has announced a strategic partnership under which Acelero™, a specialist in strategic performance management, will promote, sell and support Decideware’s HR applications.</p>
<p>These solutions fulfil the growing demand for web-based HR tools beyond the core transactional and administration systems. They convert paper-based performance management, talent management and succession planning into an online resource, with resulting gains in efficiencies, speed, ease of administration, and data management and reporting.</p>
<p>Designed for larger organisations, AceleroTM’s Performance Manager, Talent Manager, and 360 Feedback tools (powered by Decideware) are being used globally, for example in firms where executive staff are located worldwide.</p>

We are targeting the big end of town and see real value propositions with Decideware’s HR solutions, which are quick to deploy and yield results within weeks.”</p>
<p>He said Decideware had structured the solutions so that everyone in an organisation could use them – from the CEO to people on the Reception desk –. Information collected creates a powerful data repository for an organisation on a very cost effective basis.</p>
<p>“The return on investment can be quite amazing when the solutions are focused on achieving strategic objectives and fulfilling key performance indicators,” said Hawkins. “The outcomes create significant bottom line financial returns.”</p>
<p>In marketing Decideware’s HR solutions to high end organisations, Acelero™ will target its own client base, including A-list customers such as Macquarie Bank and Blake Dawson Waldron.</p>

Blending the expertise and track records of two very client oriented organisations will yield outcomes greater than the sum of the parts.</p>

These all increase business effectiveness and efficiency, and delivery of fast ROI. Decideware will continue to feed advances in this technology into the HR space via Acelero™.”</p>
