Here are the answers to some common questions that our customers ask before they start using ZenHR:

ZenHR is suited for all companies operating in the MENA region looking to automate their internal HR processes. ZenHR works best for companies from 30 up to 2,500 full-time employees.

There are several advantages to a cloud-based solution, some of which are:

  1. Cost efficiency: We can provide ZenHR at a better price to you because unlike a hosted system, deploying, scaling, and maintaining cloud infrastructure is more economic than doing so for servers hosted locally.

  2. Security and uptime: We deal with top-notch platform providers that adhere to very strict security policies and commit to a Service Level Agreement which guarantees 24/7/365 and 99.99% availability.

  3. Catastrophe recovery: Our cloud infrastructure is much more reliable and consistent than in-house IT infrastructures. Your organization can benefit from a massive pool of redundant IT resources, as well as a quick failover mechanism – if a server fails, hosted applications and services can easily be transited to any of the available servers.

  4. Touchless/Paperless experience: Due to Covid-19 and the new reality we live in, utilizing tools that allow you to onboard your employees remotely is priceless. With ZenHR, you can onboard, train, update, operate, and support the platform remotely making sure you and your loved ones are safe and out of harm’s way.

  5. More frequent updates: Utilizing a cloud infrastructure allows us to add new features and refine existing ones with minimum disturbance to your daily operations and at more frequent intervals.
