HR Technology Helps Local Businesses Simplify

“Making business simple is our goal.”
–Bill Guss, Founder, ALTRES

A lot has changed in 50 years. New technologies shape and disrupt business processes and entire industries, seemingly overnight. Regulatory and compliance issues are endlessly complex and workplace dynamics constantly shifting.

Through it all, ALTRES has remained steadfast in its commitment to Hawaii’s business community to help make business simple. Local entrepreneurs and HR professionals can focus on what matters most with HR software that improves the way business works.

“From retail to travel to banking, the consumer expectation of on-demand service is the new normal. This goes for human resources, too,” says Barron Guss, CEO of Hawaii’s most experienced HR outsourcing company, simplicityHR by ALTRES. “We’re constantly evolving to meet the needs of the business community and the future is exciting.”

Technology is the key. When someone applies for a job, or changes their withholding amounts, or submits their hours at the end of a pay period, the expectation is that it will be simple to do. With that in mind, simplicityHR by ALTRES developed HR Symphony, an award-winning, best of class, cloud-based human resources information system designed for the unique challenges of Hawaii businesses.

Extremely powerful and easy-to-use, there is no part of the employee lifecycle that can’t be simplified with HR Symphony. The software boasts features for targeted recruiting, streamlined onboarding, efficient time and attendance tracking, error-free payroll, self-service benefits administration, and more.

For over half a century, ALTRES has been a trusted partner for Hawaii businesses. Give us a call today and find out how we can help your business survive and thrive for the next 50 years.
