What Scissortail can Do


The ability to hire and retain the right employees is critical to your business growth and success. Finding a quality match sooner saves not only time and money, but will reduce turnover and help you build your employment brand.  The better the match, the more likely both you and the employee will be satisfied with the outcome.  Utilizing Scissortail HCM, it is easy to streamline applicant tracking, screening, selection, and on-boarding by:

  • Utilizing complete requisition management that enables you to develop job requisitions electronically, route them through a configurable approval workflow, and post and track the open positions.
  • Screening and hiring best-fit candidates who will excel in your organization.
  • Ensuring compliance in hiring practices.
  • Automatically searching the web for suitable candidates using a built-in applicant seeker engine that lets you answer standard or customizable questions about an open position.
  • Managing and communicating during the entire recruiting process to fill open positions more quickly and efficiently.
  • Recruiting directly from social networking sites such as LinkedIn®.
  • Gaining visibility using role-based dashboards that give managers and recruiters easy access to key information.
  • Easily verifying employment eligibility.


With Scissortail HCM, you will experience a complete web-based workforce management system that takes many of the manual, time-consuming processes associated with Human Resources and helps manage them for you.  Leveraging the award winning Kronos technology, Scissortail HCM increases efficiencies with fully-integrated modules, including:

Experience better bottom-line results with streamlined time and attendance management processes and devices that help you increase efficiency and control labor costs associated with your most expensive asset.

Employee absences — whether planned or unplanned — can have a big impact on your productivity. Scissortail HCM will help you control and mitigate the effects of absenteeism with:

  • Web entry, time clock, telephony, mobile application technology
  • Automatic calculation of accrual balances

Without accurate, automated time and leave-of-absence management, employers are at risk of non-compliance with leave regulations such as the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), exposing them to potential fines or class-action lawsuits.
