About us

Our History and our Solution

ActionHRM has been a pioneer of SaaS development since 2003 with its first HRM client in 2006 delivered from our own datacentre. We now serve our product to clients in North America, South America, UK / Europe, Asia and Australia / NZ via our global HRM solution and worldwide Cloud Servers, managed and delivered from our offices in Sydney.

Most HR departments are plagued with inefficiencies that drive up costs, hurt service quality, and increase compliance risk. In most cases, this is due to reliance on fragmented systems for tracking and managing employee data, manual processes that lead to delays and errors, and burdensome compliance tracking, enforcement and reporting.

ActionHRM was created to address these challenges by supporting all HR processes, information, management, and reporting activities using a single, integrated, on-demand solution that’s affordable and incredibly easy to use. Ideal for small and midsize businesses, the software gives you all of the benefits of an enterprise-class HR software solution – but in a solution that’s affordable and easy to deploy.
