CIC Client Customization
Offer fully supported, per-client customization of your HCM system – at a much lower cost than fully custom software development.
How customization helps our HCM partners
Whether during the presales process, during implementation, or over the course of a long term client relationship – discerning HCM clients encounter new needs as their businesses grow and evolve. While HCM technology naturally grows to fit its users, some clients encounter needs that fall outside the typical capabilities of an HCM system.
Simply put, client customization can turn a “no” into a “yes.” For top HCM sales and account representatives who want to go beyond basic spreadsheet workarounds to take their clients further, CIC client customization is a cost-effective option to help clients create truly unique end user experiences. And unlike fully custom software development, CIC client customization is based on pre-made components designed to work seamlessly with HCM systems.
Custom software development vs CIC client customization
Many clients are concerned that “custom” development will be expensive, unpredictable and time consuming. Thanks to CIC’s proven, streamlined approach to client customization, most solutions can be developed at a fraction of the cost of true custom software development. Powered by Valet Data Platform, CIC’s “custom” solutions take advantage of many pre-built components that are designed to work seamlessly with modern HCM systems.
