Proliant is not quite an all-in-one HRIS system but their platform can offer most of the core functions that an HR team is looking for in an HRIS. Compensation management, engagement surveys and succession planning may require a 3rd party.

Who is Proliant?

Proliant was founded in 1993 and got started as an accounting and bookkeeping service. Over time, their team realized a need for better payroll software for their clients and developed their own proprietary platform. Proliant has grown over the years to become first a regional player, and now a national name. Proliant's core focus is still on helping small-to-mid-sized companies with complex workforce management and tax filing needs.

What Sized Companies Fit Proliant Best?

Proliant is considered a Mid-Market HRIS, which means the system works best for companies with between 50 and 500 employees. Mid-Market solutions are designed to be an all-in-one HRIS for companies with fairly standard HR requirements.

Mid-Market solutions typically take about 2-3 months to implement and do not require external consultants to successfully implement and manage the solutions. Mid-Market solutions can be limited in how scalable they are, due to a lack of custom workflow tools and limited rules engines.
