On the 27th of February 2013 Profiles Asia Pacific, Inc. launched HR Smart, the first unified talent management system in the Philippines.

HR Smart is a global HR solution company that is used to support a user base. Today it has over 13,000 clients in 30 countries and its core product is its unified talent suite.

HR Smart avoids the lengthy and less-coherent implementation of integrated solutions. The key features of talent management are applicant tracking, performance management, learning management, career development. The unified suite does all four of these in one central database. For example, as soon as a person is hired and thus moved from ‘applicant tracking’ to ‘performance management’, the information is retained automatically.

An integrated solution, on the other hand, is disparate; “you still have your 4 major applicant trackings… but in an integrated solution the data is usually housed in different databases for each module, and that causes the end user to have to have additional implementation to write feeds back and forth between these databases as they install additional modules” said Tom McKeown, global VP of sales for HR smart.

This is an important addition to the Philippine business world, as human resources are one of the key factors in the success of a company. Malcolm Pick, National Director at Profiles Asia Pacific, Inc. said that this “advanced talent management system will allow local HR departments to get into the 21st century.”

Profiles Asia Pacific, Inc. is the only licensed provider of HR Smart for Manila and Luzon.
