Managing Your Workforce Just Got Easier

Watch a video overview of the Advanced HR product!

Advanced HR is a full-featured HRIS solution that offers a unique combination of employee collaboration and traditional workforce management tools, enabling managers and employees to access and update their information with ease. With integrated applicant tracking, new hire onboarding, benefits administration and online benefit enrollment, Advanced HR combined with Associated HCM Payroll is your “one-stop shop” for all of your human capital management needs.

Applicant Tracking

Viewing how an applicant is moving through your recruitment process is easy in Advanced HR. From defining the application process, creating custom job application questions and custom email templates to monitoring and tracking the applicant’s progress.

New Hire Onboarding

Create unlimited onboarding task lists for new hires which can be monitored on the administrative onboarding dashboard. Self-service onboarding for a new hire includes e-signatures for electronic W-4 and I-9 Forms, consent documents and direct deposit elections.

Employee and Manager Self-Service Dashboard

Everything is at the employee’s fingertips – from viewing company announcements, accessing company documents and important links to related websites, along with accessing their personal paystubs, tax documents and HR documents. Employees can view reminders of certifications and license expirations, their PTO balance, benefits enrollment and even report a life event – all in one spot.

HR Administration

Single sign-on allows access to multiple companies where you can perform a cross multi-company employee search, post company news and announcements and important website links. From here, an administrator can also track employee information such as position and organizational changes with reasons and effective dates, performance reviews, statuses, scores, notes, employee documents, certifications/licenses documentation and more.


It is easy to create and maintain benefit plan setups as well as employee benefit elections. Defining Eligibility groups and waiting periods, in addition to viewing/approving open enrollment benefit elections, makes benefits administration a breeze.

Benefits enrollment (medical, dental and vision) right from the employee dashboard makes benefit elections simple for the employee and decreases the amount of time HR has to spend entering employee data.

Performance Tracking

Create and define unlimited performance reviews by employee (annual, 90-day, etc.) and track the performance review scheduled dates and completion status. Reminders are visible in the ESS Dashboard and the employee results are recorded along with any supporting documentation to review.


Email notifications, reminders and alerts keep administrators, managers and employees updated on activities in the system and items pending approval.
