10 years after Microsoft first acquired Elevate HR's Human Capital Management IP (the foundation for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Talent & Human Resources), Microsoft has again purchased rights to Elevate HR software. This time around, Microsoft purchased Elevate HR's new Advanced Benefits Administration and Enhanced Employee Open Enrollment Experience IP to include within Dynamics 365.
"The IP acquisitions announced today will support our customers throughout their transformation journey, breaking down people data silos and providing a centralized view of the workforce, as well as automating key tasks that may have historically been done on paper or using Microsoft Excel...These new capabilities will greatly enhance our ability to help HR teams drive operational excellence across these critical employee experiences" – Muhammad Alam, Microsoft General Manager, Dynamics 365
Elevate HR customers, like Sevan Multi-Site Solutions, choose Microsoft + Elevate HR to support their rapid expansion, build an empowerment culture, bring down operating costs and bolster an employee-first ethos:
“We have four main pillars in our company—people, clients, operations, and finance —and people always come first. Deploying Talent was a strategic decision that fits within our long-term roadmap of accelerated global expansion, and it’s already starting to pay off. We’ve seen Microsoft devote considerable resources to expand and enhance the product to make it a diverse human resources solution. These new investments are a great example of that effort and help position our team for future growth in the Multi-Site construction industry.” – Chris Galazka, Vice President of Human Resources, Sevan Multi-Site Solutions
The following Elevate HR apps will soon be available out-of-the-box in Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Talent & Human Resources:
Elevate HR Advanced Benefits Management
There’s a strong correlation between benefits, hiring, and retention: organizations need to develop and manage highly competitive benefits programs to attract and retain the best employees. Managing these programs requires highly configurable systems that help companies leverage the value of benefits they provide to their employees. This key investment will help our customers manage complex benefit programs, including tiered benefit rates, flex credit management, complex eligibility rules, and auto-enrollment features. We will also provide benefit managers with the ability to integrate employee and enrollment information with their benefit providers.
Elevate HR Employee Enrollment Experience
Today’s benefits are flexible, personalized, and plentiful. An engaging benefit enrollment portal dramatically improves the employee experience and increases satisfaction with employer benefit programs. Employees will have an intuitive “retail” experience, with concepts of item selection, product detail forms, shopping carts, and easy dependent/beneficiary handling. Our investment in self-service features for new hire enrollments, real-time life events, and open enrollment cycles will free up HR departments to focus on strategic projects that impact the business.
Additional features soon to be available in Dynamics 365 include Timesheets and enhanced support for complex Leave & Absence policies.
