Strategies Implemented to Stay Competent
India is home to some of the fastest growing companies in the world. With strong initiatives being taken by honorable PM on ‘Make in India’, ‘Skill India’ there is a huge emphasis on HR best practices within a company, whether it’s big or small. India is a diverse market spread far and wide, and there isn’t a single state or city where companies are clustered. Keeping all of this in mind, hSenid’s big differentiation is:
Scale with partners: hSenid is building a very strong partner network and within a short span of 18 months they are armed with 12 trained partners. This helps them reach clients across all the segments. Compared to their competitors offering similar solution, despite years of presence they have not been able to achieve this goal. Many of their competitive partners are showing interest in partnering with hSenid and taking their solution to the market.
Invest in building an awesome product: There is no single HRIS provider in India who offers an end to end solution with Indian localisation. Majority of the products available are strong in one particular area such as recruitment, performance or leaning and development. Similarly local players and many new entrants lack depth and breadth of functionality. With 19 years of legacy they offer the most comprehensive HRIS with the ability of localisation. In a nutshell, a truly global product with local flavor.
Invest in people: They believe that people are their biggest asset; with Pradeep’s and Anuj’s background from Google and Microsoft respectively, they strongly believe that it is the people who help them to achieve big goals. They believe in hiring the best and then offering them the best benefits. They are attracting talent from all across and their employees are happy with the opportunity and exposure they receive.
Social HR: A big differentiation for hSenid is their ESN tool, Jurra, they are probably the first HRIS company to bring out a socially integrated solution into the market. The product is light, simple to deploy and extremely easy to use.
hSenid’s 4 Key Values of Enduring Success

  1. Acquiring their first few clients: This is one of the most difficult tasks as it is always a leap of faith with startups like hSenid. With their experience, network and an awesome product they were able to get their first few clients to sign up and today, within a short time span of 18 months they acquire almost 2 enterprise logos every three weeks. For a startup operation, this is a rather significant achievement and the difference is an enterprise logo not just a logo.
  2. Giving confidence to their partners: hSenid’s strategy has always been “scale with partners”, therefore it’s super important for the clients to feel confident of their association with hSenid. Any relationship would go through its ups and downs and this is the time when hSenid has held up their end by securing their valuable connection. They had their share of differences but every partner who signed up with hSenid is committed to the success of their business.
  3. Hiring the right talent: Attracting the right people to work with them is the single biggest challenge they faced. However, with a combination of right benefits, long term vision and successful career they have been able to overcome this challenge.
  4. Staying the course: With every new client they have a new requirement, one can easily lose their way by over customising and over committing. However, this is still a big challenge with Indian clients. hSenid made some initial mistakes, but now they have a robust product and their sales team understands what they can deliver. Their newest India release would be out by 31st August and they call this Wave 1. The company is so excited with the release of the product and confidently stated that this would change the market perception on HRIS.
