Fosway looks at a set of 5 criteria to see how vendors position on the market: Potential, performance, presence, the total cost of Ownership and future trajectory. Our position on the grid is a statement of the customer impact we've made, our complete offer of HR and business solutions as an ecosystem of tools, and most importantly, our vision of best HR & people practices as the backbone of our product.

Why a core challenger?

2020 has been a year of change and challenges for us. Besides Covid-19, intuo has become part of Unit4, and we are now Unit4 intuo. Our offer for HR is more prominent: Human Capital Management. With the HCM suite, we can offer a more complete and blended experience to customers, from hire to retire. However, what set us apart, and we feel proud of is our commitment to drive business value. Towards innovation, integration and product improvements, we aim to position HR as a strategic partner for the business.

Our product responds to our objective, that is why Unit4 HCM is not a centralised platform. It doesn't work in silos. The platform communicates perfectly with other business units and between payroll, core HR, talent management and learning. It's not static and rigid, but flexible and responsive to what people and business needs. The platform support managers and employees with their career development.
