bsoco: How does Altays fit into the world of HR today?

Jean-Christophe Cicile: Altays provides The digital suite for HR. We team up with our clients to deliver solutions.

In the world of HR going more and more digital, Altays is a leading and innovative software vendor delivering a comprehensive suite covering all functional aspects required by HR organisations and processes.

Our key values are articulated around quality, communication and innovation.

Leveraging an expertise of 18 years and engagements with over 300 clients in the software industry for HR, Altays Suite is an intuitive, easy-to-use and innovative HR portal which covers for the 3 HR areas:

  • - Recruitment & Internal mobility
  • - Skills, Talent & Performance
  • - HR Document Management


bsoco: What are the main features of your software? What do you guarantee to your customers?

Jean-Christophe Cicile: ALTAYS Suite enables efficient and seamless management of recruiting and internal mobility processes (job offers and applications made easy, publication on multiple job boards, tracking of interns, corporate brand promotion...) and complementary solutions (mobile app, Job Fait management software). We help our customers to hire the best candidates using the most powerful tools while lowering significantly the recruiting cost.

ALTAYS Suite also enables efficient talent management through annual and professional appraisals, talent review, compensation processes and more. We help our customers to better manage, improve skills, motivate and retain employees.

Furthermore, ALTAYS Suite also provides a unique solution for HR document management, a unique combination of portal and secured repository for HR departments and employees!

Above all, Altays delivers easy-to-use solutions to secure fast adoption together with advanced analytics and reporting capabilities to facilitate decision-making and accelerate processes. Altays brings a team of experts in solution rollout but also in HR processes to make sure the solution we deliver actually reflects your processes.

bsoco: Are there any traps that need to be avoided when starting a HR  project?

Jean-Christophe Cicile: As part of your selection process, you will primarily focus, for good reasons, on functional aspects and acquisition cost.

However, it will be important to consider the following aspects as criteria – aspects that are often neglected during the initial selection process of such solutions:

  • - An HR software solution must be easy-to-use and intuitive. This means an easy rollout; new users can get up to speed extremely quickly. Recurring training sessions are not required.
  • - You receive expert advice throughout your project and set-up. Make sure you are dealing with experts in software but also in HR processes, that they master the industry best practices. They will deliver a solution that reflects and optimizes your processes.
  • - The chosen solution matches your processes and not the other way around and can also reflect your corporate brand
  • - The solution you consider will be powerful enough to process huge flows of data but will be flexible enough to manage to optimize your corporate image.
  • - The software vendor is committed to delivering complementary solutions to support advanced trends (mobility, accessibility, responsiveness, etc.) through companion apps and/or partnerships allowing for the delivery of state-of-the-art solutions.
  • - The chosen recruiting solution is a component natively integrated into a comprehensive HR software suite to facilitate incremental steps but also process mutualisation.
