Why HR Analytics Software Matters

Your employees are like the foundation that supports your business. So if your people aren’t well-managed, that foundation and everything built on top of it will come crumbling down. That’s where people or HR analytics come into play. 

People analytics tools, such as software analytics, take the guesswork out of managing your people. Instead of having to rely on intuition alone, analytics tools provide you with actionable, fact-based insights that you can leverage to better understand your people and how they exist within and affect your organization. 

These insights allow you to truly see the value of your employees and enable you to improve upon and make the most of that value to benefit the employee experience and the success of your business.  

HR Analysis tools assist you to:

Attract better talent

Use data during the recruitment process to ensure higher-quality hires.

Reduce absenteeism

Gain insights into absence rates to make more informed decisions that can help you reduce both intentional and unplanned absenteeism.

Reduce Turnover

See who your top performers are and reward and engage them to prevent them from leaving the company and reduce turnover rates. 

Improve engagement

Use employee engagement analytics, such as feedback data, to gain insights into how to improve employee engagement. 

Ensure diversity, equity, and inclusion

Gain insights into the diversity of your workforce, and use that data to make more meaningful changes to support DEI efforts, such as by closing gender and race pay gaps, and eliminating hiring bias. 

Leverage data that is accessible, reliable, secure, and organized all in one place.


With KPI dashboards, you can easily view and measure key metrics such as absenteeism, growth, retention, and payroll. Use this data to uncover trends, patterns, blind spots, biases, and more to help you make more informed decisions.


All the reporting you need to run your workforce in one place, such as HR reports, financial reports, and IT reports. With Exact HR reporting software, you can view, schedule, and share these reports from one platform. You can even create custom reports using our HR report template tool.


End reactive cycles with proactive tools that help you stay ahead and stay aware. Our proactive tools go beyond KPI data. Our insights software can help you measure, explore, learn, and understand based on trends and patterns so you can stay ahead and predict what will happen next.

Here’s What Our Customers Say

Exact Payroll explained to us, in addition to so many other mysteries, how we were eligible for the Employee Retention Credit, even though we received a PPP loan. It's been a big help during a very complex time.
