Lawson Goes SaaSy with HCM
May 29, 2007 Alex Woodie
Lawson Software last week unveiled Human Capital Management On-Demand, a new software as a service (SaaS) offering that lowers the bar of entry to Lawson’s products and provides a more consistent pricing schedule.
Lawson consistently scores high on analyst rankings of Human Capital Management (HCM), which incorporates applications such as human resources, payroll, recruiting, benefits management, and assorted self-service and portal applications. Now, with HCM On-Demand, Lawson is making it easier for organizations to gain the benefits of using HCM offerings without making the big up-front capital investment in software, hardware, facilities, and personnel.
The software vendor uses a subscription-based pricing model that allows companies to pay on a per-user, per-month basis. Lawson guarantees that it will respond to customer problems in 30 minutes or less, which it says is the highest level of support available for Lawson solutions.
“Lawson Human Capital Management On-Demand makes it simple for the customer,” said Larry Dunivan, Lawson’s vice president of global human capital management products. “Guaranteed service levels, clear pricing, and quality standards let Lawson customers know up-front what to expect, ensuring they realize measurable returns on their investment in Lawson.”
Lawson has tapped IBM to provide hosting services for HCM On-Demand. The offering is now available in North America.
