TOKYO – March 26, 2014 – Works Applications, Japan’s largest ERP software provider, has received an order for its COMPANY HCM as a human resources management system from Sojitz Asia Pte. Ltd.
With the number of locally-based companies growing in the Southeast Asia region, together with the accelerating pace of overseas expansion by Japanese companies, effectively utilizing human resources can become a problem for organizations such as Sojitz Asia. Many companies do not have systems in place to accurately manage personnel and oversee HR staffing and administration for their overseas locations. Furthermore, as the global marketplace becomes more competitive, it becomes increasingly important for companies to continue to attract and retain top talent.
In order to address these matters, Sojitz Asia has introduced COMPANY, an integrated human resources system from Works Applications, throughout the region of Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, etc.) to strengthen the management of its human resources functions.
COMPANY can be introduced without customization for each country's different laws and evaluation systems to enable centralized management
COMPANY provides robust functionality without complicated customization required to more than 1,000 major enterprises. COMPANY is highly valued by clients for the system’s excellent management functions for group companies, which enable centralized management across the 15 countries in the Southeast Asia region.
By using COMPANY to manage multiple different systems in a single database, enterprises like Sojitz Asia can improve productivity across various human resources functions, including recruiting, training, and optimum placement of personnel, thereby strengthening their competitiveness in the fast-growing region.
