COL as Pioneer to Receive HR Excellence Awards for HRIS Service Provider
Flagship System HR Pro Delivers Highly Effective and Agile Management to Advance Operational Development

Hong Kong — December 8, 2014 — COL Limited (COL), the IT service subsidiary of Wharf T&T Limited, is a pioneer to receive the ‘Excellent HR Information System Provider Award’ at the HR Excellence Awards 2014, a programme organised by the Hong Kong Institute of Human Resource Management after thorough and stringent assessment and evaluation processes.

Ruby Ng, Head of Sales Operations, Professional Services of COL said, ‘We are extremely honored and proud to receive this prestigious award as a result of our successful implementation of a sustainable corporate HR system framework for a Hong Kong-based conglomerate with over 1,800 employees and 60 years of history in merely eight months. By leveraging our strong domain know-how in HR software development to underpin a centralised, systemised and scalable HRIS, we help establish a feature-rich HR system for this conglomerate to cope with their fast-moving organisational development.’

The winning project featuring the successful implementation of COL’s flagship HR Information System (HRIS), HR Pro, in a Hong Kong-based conglomerate best illustrates the outstanding performance of COL team in project execution, business achievement and innovation. Given the tight project timeline, COL fully catered to the different business needs of the conglomerate’s subsidiaries and made good use of HR Pro to successfully standardise the HR processes and practices among its 11 operating companies. Not only are paper consumption and cost largely reduced, HR staff can also devote more time and effort to optimise talent management and enhance productivity and efficiency.

HR Pro is a full-featured HRIS with scalable infrastructure, encompassing strong functionality such as talent administration management, employee self-service portal via website browser and mobile app, advanced workforce planning and managerial strategic analysis. Accompanied by COL’s end-to-end consultancy, training, and system maintenance services, it helps streamline workflow, enhance operational efficiency and drive organisational development.

Organised by the Hong Kong Institute of Human Resource Management, the HR Excellence Awards programme recognises organisations and individuals who achieve business success through outstanding people management strategies and practices. Award winners undergo stringent evaluation by a judging panel formed by HR experts and business leaders.
