Global corporate finance advisory company invests in new tech to support HR team

London-based corporate finance advisor Arma Partners has joined forces with HR technology specialist The Access Group to support the continued growth ambitions of the firm.

The firm struck a deal with The Access Group to implement an integrated HR and learning management system, helping its HR team to cut down on admin time, streamline recruitment and support staff learning, including compliance with FCA rules.  

Arma made the decision to move to a new HR software provider as they found the previous system clunky and inefficient.

Explaining more, Richard Walden, HR Director at Arma Partners, said:

“It became clear that we needed a new solution that would be able to keep up with our changing business needs while being aligned with our broader cloud strategy and with our stringent security and compliance requirements. We have grown quickly in the last 10 years and we needed a system that would support our team as the company expands.

“That being said, we’re entrepreneurial and nimble, so we need a platform that is flexible enough to manage our current HR processes, some of which are quite bespoke including our 360 staff performance reviews.”

He added that the software would enable the HR team to automate more tasks and will be able to scale up with the business:

“Access’ solution also comes with a range of different additional modules which can be added as and when we need them. Alongside the HR software, we also chose the Access Learning Management System as it will make training and compliance much easier to manage.

"The Access Group’s teams provided real life demos tailored to our processes, and we look forward to moving to the new system.”

James Smyth, HR Solutions Specialist for financial services at The Access Group, added:

“The HR department is an integral part of any business and plays a key role in the smooth running of the business and improving the employee experience. Our HR solutions are scalable, easy to use and really comprehensive meaning that they can grow with the business regardless of size and can be tailored to each specific business’ needs. By investing in a solution that allows HR professionals to save time on simple tasks, it means they can focus on the actions that really matter and ultimately steer their business to further successes.

“It’s great to be able to work with Arma Partners as they realise their ambitions to drive efficiencies and empower the HR team to be the best they can be.”
