HRLocker FAQs

Will HRLocker integrate with my payroll application?

HRLocker can integrate with payroll applications on a case-by-case basis but this can involve an additional cost.

There are no current APIs or integrations but these are on our development roadmap.

Usually, our clients grant access to the relevant personnel in Finance so that they can pull and export the reports they need at the intervals they require the data.

 

HR Systems Integrations and APIs – What You Need to Know

Implementing an HR system is usually very difficult and costly, how is HRLocker different?

Many companies are used to Enterprise HR systems, which are very expensive to implement and can take months to deliver.

As HRLocker is a cloud-based tool, it can be planned and delivered in a matter of hours, compared to many months for larger enterprise products.

Your HRLocker instance can start with a team as small as 15 employees and you can scale it from there without the need to put a large investment upfront.

 

My IT department is worried about our company implementing a cloud solution instead of deploying it in-house.

Our cloud solution is one of the safest HR systems on the market and we work closely with IT teams to ensure they are comfortable with implementing HRLocker and integrating it with their other applications.

We have several customers in Compliance-heavy sectors and frequently pass penetration testing from Enterprise-level clients.

 

Is it safe?

HRLocker is:

  • Hosted on the Microsoft Azure platform with full multi-centre redundancy. (European-only safe-zone Data Centres with biometric authorized access and 24hr video surveillance and data access restricted to appropriate user type.)
  • secure with encryption levels equivalent to those of online banking providers with additional database encryption, firewalls and software protection in place.
  • GDPR and HR
