Company Profile

Founded in 2004, Femas HR is dedicated to developing human resources management solutions, and assisting enterprises to improve efficiency and save costs.  In Taiwan, there are many small and medium-sized companies who don’t have enough resources to develop self-financing, or can’t outsource development of human resources systems like enterprises. Therefore, Femas launched “Femas HR Cloud Human Resource System” in 2012, which combines features like salary, attendance, scheduling, and taking leaves. It provides complete human resources management system services with cheap monthly rent, and uses cloud-based sharing technology to eliminate additional costs such as upgrades and equipment maintenance for businesses. Femas HR adopt Amazon Web Services, which are stable and secure, and greatly reduces security concerns.

Challenge

When planning their system from the beginning, Femashr evaluates several IDC providers to find a proper environment. Though many of them can provide enough computing capability Femashr needs, they lack immediacy and flexibility for performance enhancing and resources expanding. Also, Femashr need to integrate other services (such as mail services) by themselves, which increases operational workloads.

They also consider to build on premise, but expensive infrastructure and follow-up maintain cost will lead to higher SaaS charging, which decreases customers’ willingness to use.

All of these factors delay releasing time of HR System, and they successfully roll it out until turn to AWS.

Solutions

When choosing IaaS service, there are several considerations for Femas HR: System stability, information security, functional integrity, self-management. As a professional HR SaaS, stable system and information security are absolutely critical, and AWS is able to meet the above requirements and stand the first place in Femas’s evaluation. The convenient management mechanism allows customers to fully understand the status of the system and adjusts the resources flexibly according to the demand. These are the reasons why Femas chose AWS.
