StarGarden At A Glance

Good: Fields focus on job duties and functions rather than individual employees in order to scale information quickly.
Bad: Does not offer payroll services, only the product.
Bottom Line: HRMS with integrated payroll for end-to-end performance tracking.

Product Overview

StarGarden is a service-oriented software vendor offering a complete HRMS system.

Its solutions are developed to be convenient, adaptable and flexible. Deployed as either on-premise with the client’s own servers or in the cloud, each solution is built to fit cusomized workflows and organizational priorities.

One unique service offered by StarGarden is its Assessment stage to gauge client needs before they invest in a solution. The service requires 2-3 days for on-site meetings then another 2 for constructing a formal proposal. This way, both parties can agree on the parameters of an implementation before any decisions are made.


The following 5 features were chosen to represent StarGarden’s strengths as an HRMS solution:

1. Payroll: StarGarden’s payroll system is able to cross borders. Direct deposit, benefits deductions, and multiple pay frequencies are among its many capabilities. Administrators can look up full pay histories as well as keep track of attendance.

2. Organization Management: A full view on an organization’s hierarchy can be accessed in the solution. Positions and titles exist on three levels, and physical structures exist on two levels. Job requirements are intrinsic to the positions and allows a comprehensive view on evaluations and requisitions.

3. Benefits Management: Administrators save time organizing benefits by positions and other groupings rather than by each individual employee. Single-entry change for group defaults cuts down on manual data entry. A drill-down to payments and deductions is quickly accessible.

4. Compensation Management: StarGarden allows administrators to easily track compensation changes. A complete grid displays employee salaries along with dates of changes, global workforce analysis, a history of additional pays, and even “what-if” scenario mapping.

5. Business Process Manager: Tasks done automatically and tasks that require attention from personnel can be tracked within a complete workflow. Notifications, task routing, permissions, and custom user roles allow employees to stay on top of on going processes. Users defined as Authorities within the system control a wide range of user privileges including workflow routings, approval rights, access to information and services and domain/network access.
