Homegrown human resources (HR) management and software provider Sprout Solutions gave free access for its Rescue Kit to help enterprises get back on their feet as Metro Manila entered general community quarantine (GCQ).
The package includes services on timekeeping, payroll, leave requests, 201-file management, digital activations, and access to legal expert webinars, which aims to keep businesses afloat and ensure the continuity in operations amid new normal.
Since its introduction in April, the kit has supported over 350 businesses in maintaining their link to employees.
“Sprout Solutions has stayed true to its mission of transforming HR practices to sustain operations even during challenging times. We have always believed that taking care of the backend procedures of companies allows their leaders to focus on growing their business and this focus is crucial now more than ever,” Sprout Chief Executive Officer Patrick Gentry shared.
Also included in the kit is InstaCash – a hassle-free loan service available to all employees of companies running Sprout’s HR and Payroll software, allowing eligible employees to borrow up to P25,000 interest-free through the HR platform’s dashboard.
InstaCash is embedded in Sprout’s software, thus allowing for accurate computation of maximum loanable amount and automatic loan repayment through salary deduction.
Sprout’s HR solutions run on Microsoft’s cloud computing service Azure, making the company respond faser to the dynamic requirements of businesses at present and expand seamlessly to accommodate more customers.
“Placing our services on Azure has allowed us to respond quickly to our customers’ needs and provide them solutions to adapt to the restrictions brought about by the public health crisis. We are glad to be partnered with Microsoft Philippines in empowering local businesses to strengthen their invaluable link to employees through an effective, digital solution,” Gentry added.
