Leading an HRIS project from RFP to implementation

Salo Expert™ matches senior experts in finance, accounting, and HR with organizations that need their help. Together, they tackle tough challenges, clean up messes, make strategic breakthroughs, and help every client get ahead.    


A privately held consumer packaged goods company was looking for a partner to lead an HRIS project from RFP to implementation. They needed a resource with significant HRIS expertise to:

  • Identify needs and capture the desired future state
  • Facilitate discussions between technology vendors and business users
  • Manage the client-side project
  • Ensure the system is built to meet the client’s needs


Salo matched the client with a Salo expert consultant with deep experience in HRIS systems. This consultant stayed with the client throughout the project process—from needs analysis and implementation to training and ongoing system maintenance.


After leading workshops to establish the requirements for the HRIS system, the consultant used a weighted criteria scorecard to help create alignment with the client team. Then, the consultant managed all aspects of the client-side project—from mapping detailed process flows and creating security roles to managing issue logs and status reporting. Finally, the consultant prepared the client team for success by planning/executing initiatives around training and change management.

With the consultant’s help, the new system was delivered successfully, on time, within budget, and with minimal disruption to the business. After the system was put in place, the HR and payroll teams gained a broader scope, influence, and engagement in their organization.
