Not so long ago, the primary duties of a company’s HR department would have entailed maintaining employee records, determining the salaries and compensation packages of employees, and ensuring that the company was in compliance with laws, among other tasks. However, that landscape has changed drastically today, all thanks to digitalisation.
With a slew of automation technologies taking care of the traditional HR work today, HR departments are no longer considered to be a passive administrative wing of a company. Instead, they are equally making their strategic inputs to determine the fate of a company. Thus, for CHROs, it is no longer enough to simply procure a digital solution for their HR operations. They need to have a deep understanding of the recent regulations in the realm of HR. To simplify this task for CHROs, the HR space maven that is rising up to the occasion is onPoint. Based out of Poland, onPoint provides high-tech solutions for hard HR with regard to time and attendance, business trip calculations, and HR communication. “Because we always have a pulse on the recent developments of HR space, our services are always compliant with the latest regulations of the ever-changing HR market,” underscores Łukasz Sosniaczynski, the head of implementation and service delivery & Chief of Staff at onPoint.
Notably, onPoint has eight years of extensive service experience in the HR sector, and has been a trusted advisor to many companies to design and implement their HR solutions. Based on such experience of its in-house specialists, today, onPoint has developed its illustrious suite of solutions. The principle behind onPoint’s solution deck is to unburden the HR managers and help them improve their focus and concentration on the work at hand. For example, in certain situations, the only task of a HR personnel is to feed data into the automated system. Then automation eliminates any discrepancies and speeds up information flow, which is crucial to many of the onPoint clients.

Moreover, “these HRM solutions can adapt to ever changing market needs based on over 1000 configurable parameters of the platform,” adds Mateusz Lalowicz.
At this juncture, onPoint’s suite of solutions include: onPoint time and attendance, onPoint Initium, onPoint business trips, onPoint iFolder, and other HR tools that solve some of the pertinent challenges of hard HR. The onPoint iFolder, for example, puts an end to the physical review of the employee data in the company archive as any authorised HR team member can safely access each document from their computers. Similarly, the travel and expense reconciliation system allows a streamlined multistage approval process for both operational and finance team through automated calculation of appropriate allowances in accordance with correct foreign exchange rates. The workflow ends with preparation of combined accounting journal voucher that can be processed in the client’s ledgers. To this extent, onPoint also offers aggregated reporting functionalities for payroll departments, where the system calculates all individual components i.e. appropriately valuated overtime or reconciled allowances in business trips, and generates reports on all the correctly aggregated data. It then feeds the data into the payroll software. This significantly improves speed and efficiency compared to the other commonly available solutions.
Recently, as Łukasz highlights, onPoint has created onPoint PPK—a self-service employee capital management platform to create a win-win scenario for employers, employees, as well as the HR department. Through this platform, employees can browse all of the information related to the pension plans, opt for a certain plan, and declare monthly instalments. Or alternatively, they can make modifications to their existing plan or opt out from such programs altogether.
Having already carved out a niche for itself in Poland with such capabilities, onPoint is now poised to enter other foreign markets. Especially, with encouraging client feedback coming in from all direction, this is a particularly favourable time for onPoint to extend its geographic footprints. Besides, the company is also aiming to extend its functionalities to cover the entire scope of hard HR. “Our current plan entails covering more grounds like automation of employment contract and appraisal process for hard HR,” concludes Łukasz.
