History of ZingHR
Prasad Rajappan, who started an HR consulting organization Cnergyis in 2006 in Mumbai, he thought of launching a cloud platform with the idea of covering the entire spectrum from hire-to-retire, he did not want to address it from an HR automation perspective.
Therefore, ZingHR was born in 2014, a cloud-based Human Capital Management (HCM) solution covering the entire spectrum from hire-to-retire or an end-to-end HCM solution with the focus on small and medium enterprises.
Additional to that, ZingHR wanted to give customers the simplicity of social media on an HCM automation app, thus allowing them to do HR management right from their mobile.
In the last few years, ZingHR’s scalable modules have attracted customers of all sizes from companies with 50 to 500 employees who want everything in real-time on mobile as well as those with more than a thousand employees who have experimented with other ERPs before as well.
Mr. Rajappan attributes this shift to two things, one to the mobility aspect as it provides mobile apps on hiring and appraisals. And secondly, to the initiatives, it’s doing on machine learning with Microsoft in terms of talent acquisition.
