Back in March of this year, Sage, the UK's largest tech company, announced it was acquiring Fairsail, the UK's fastest growing start up and creator of a global cloud HCM and people management system for mid-sized businesses built on the Salesforce App Cloud.
This wasn't a huge surprise since Sage was already a minority shareholder and the product has also been successfully deployed within Sage. They also launched a shared product last year branded Sage People.
Sage People is dubbed as an end-to-end Human Capital Management (HCM is the new acronym) and people solution. It addresses workforce management challenges of mid-sized organizations with an eye towards the increasingly mobile and global workforce of many companies. This includes Core HR, Payroll as well as Talent Acquisition, Talent Management and HR Planning tools.
As the leader in Sage HR solutions in Eastern Ontario, we have become one of the first Canadian Sage People Partners and are very excited by what we've seen of the product so far!!
