Workforce Analytics

Workforce Analytics Is the Key to Today’s Competitive Business Environment—For Businesses of Any Size

HigherUp delivers Workforce Analytics fueled by real-time data from a unified Workforce Automation and Payroll offering. CFOs and HR executives in small and medium-size businesses can contribute more strategically to building a competitive business by replacing their current model of decisions driven largely by intuition and guesswork – to one based on using real-time data to frame and answer the right questions.

Analytics Need to be in the Hands of Real Business People – Not Data Scientists

HigherUp’s products are designed to deliver powerful analytics into the hands of “real people” and not just data scientists. CFOs and HR execs in small and medium sized businesses need access to the most current information now – not month old data that might be delivered tomorrow. And they need it in a form that helps them make more strategic and competitive decisions. Our technology platform makes information available “anytime anywhere”, and is quickly deployable and scalable via the cloud without the need for IT resources.
