Sanden Group’s story
Sanden group moves HR to the next level
The Sanden Group is a worldwide specialist in heating and cooling technologies. Sanden operates in 23 countries across Europe, America, Asia and Australia through 59 subsidiaries. XCD HR supports 14 sites across Sanden International Europe.
Sanden needed to improve its HR function. They were managing employee data with spreadsheets, and absence management and performance management with Lotus notes. They needed an integrated self-service system that was also multi-language and multi-currency.
The need for multi-currency and multi-langauge limited our options. Doing a deep dive into similar companies that did offer multi-languages showed up their limitations. Other firms said ‘we can do French and German and that’s about it.
In the end we just felt that XCD was a true HR system written by HR people, rather than a finance payroll system with a bit of HR added on to it which was why we went with XCD.”
Samantha Webb – HR Sanden
XCD-Professional offers the multi-language, multi-currency solution that Sanden required, and we have tailored it to fit their requirements. The implementation has been done incrementally, starting with absence management, followed by performance management. Training and recruitment tools are now in progress. Next on the list are succession planning and e-learning, reward statements and automated reporting.
Simpler reporting, more self service, visibility for managers.
“People within the business are saying it’s a lot simpler, it looks a lot better, and it’s a lot slicker.”
