Business plans don't always need to consider the concept of human resources management. But the way you manage human capital will directly affect your business, so the fact that business plans don't have an "HR section" hardly means that you shouldn't try to get a handle on the idea long before you go into business. But fear not: the solution could be simpler than you think. You might not have imagined that computer software would be the best answer for managing your HR responsibilities, but perennial industry leader Microsoft offers several progressive solutions for HR management, including software applications like Dynamics AX, Dynamics GP, and Dynamics NAV—and they work.
Employees will be the core of your business, your brightest and most profitable assets. But all business owners know that there's a downside to managing human capital, namely wrestling with salaries, benefits, and the administrative duties that naturally accompany having a live staff. Microsoft can help mitigate these expenses and, ideally, reduce the stress associated with trying to manage administrative HR tasks. The software giant has ideas that will help you empower your employees, raise productivity, and rethink your workforce—all of which will facilitate your HR management procedures. By using software to control HR functions, you can give your employees ready access to their records, simplify payroll issues, and ensure that you attract and retain the right employees for future expansion. In short, with HR software from Microsoft, you can streamline the way you administer human resources.
We recently finalized a set of business plans for a New York-based delivery service that used trucks to move time-sensitive freight between businesses. Formerly a one-man operation, the business plan sought additional capital for expansion so that it could make deliveries beyond the confines of New York, traveling instead across the Midwest and eventually nationwide. But making the business larger was more than a matter of buying additional trucks and bringing on some staff; indeed, human resources management issues were at the heart of whether the business would sink or swim in its new, larger pool. Recommending that the client consider an HR solutions package from Microsoft was not an idle suggestion; it made the plan much more appealing to investors.
