Company looks back on 17 years of serving clients and continuous growth
Frisco, TX (May 5th 2014) – HRchitect, a leading provider of full-lifecycle HCM technology consulting services, is celebrating 17 years of assisting clients with their HCM technology-related needs. Founded on April 30th 1997, HRchitect entered the HR industry to provide organizations with unbiased assessments of their recruiting and talent acquisition system needs. Founder Rick Fletcher sought out to create a company which would be able to assess and evaluate an organization’s talent acquisition system needs while remaining vendor neutral. This principle of remaining truly vendor agnostic remains one of the key principles of HRchitect’s client-centric approach today.
The diversification of HRchitect’s service offerings has been a key contributor to the growth the firm has seen over the previous 13 quarters. While HRchitect was started to service talent acquisition technology, the full breath of their service offerings – strategy, selection, implementation and support – are now offered for the complete catalog of HCM technologies including HRIS, payroll, benefits, workforce management, talent acquisition and talent management.
“Seventeen years is a long time in this business, and although we’ve seen many changes, it sometimes feels like we are just getting started.” said Matt Lafata, president at HRchitect. “The growth of HRchitect, particularly in the past few years has been tremendous.”
Lafata credits HRchitect’s team of consultants, most of whom are former Human Resource practitioners, with being a key contributor to the organization’s success.
“Our people are the best of the best and I couldn’t be more proud of the work they do on behalf of our clients, which is the driving reason why organizations keep coming back to us for new projects.”
The firm is experiencing growth in all service areas – strategy, selection, implementation and support.
“As one of the few remaining vendor-neutral firms in the market today, we’ve seen our Strategy and Evaluation practices grow tremendously over the previous 18 months,” continued Lafata. “Implementation and support also continue to grow at a similar rate as organizations are relying upon the added consulting expertise that HRchitect brings to implementation projects and ongoing support of their system after the implementation is complete.”
In 1997, HRchitect began seeking out vendor specific certifications in an effort to better support clients’ HCM technology needs and vendor specific solutions. These system certifications allowed HRchitect to provide clients with more comprehensive services throughout the entire system lifecycle. HRchitect continues to pursue certifications in the latest solutions providing clients with expert consultants for any HCM system they may utilize.
“The vendor market place is constantly evolving, both with players in the space and features and functionality.” said HRchitect EVP of Business Development, Tiffany Appleby. “The better we know the systems in the market, the better we can service our clients. Partnering with vendors to stay educated on their platforms is a critical focus for our organization.”
HRchitect continues to grow in service offerings, market segments, and geography. With more and more clients benefiting from HRchitect’s vendor agnostic approach to HCM consulting services, the next 17 years promise to bring even more expansion and growth to the company.
“I wholeheartedly want to thank the HCM community and our clients for the trust they put in HRchitect.” says Matt Lafata. “I’m very much looking forward to the next 17 years!”
