Chola is the first company in the Murugappa Group to begin the digital transformation of its people processes by adopting PeopleStrong Alt, a product from PeopleStrong.
Cholamandalam Investment and Finance Company (Chola), the financial arm of the Murugappa Group, has decided to move its people data to the cloud. Chola, as a company, has always been keen to embrace technology to ensure speed and convenience for its customers through its digital properties. Now, the Company wishes to delight its employees as well, and has therefore tied up with PeopleStrong, the Indian HR SaaS company that currently serves over 200 enterprises and over 600,000 users.
Within the next year or so, all the major companies of the Murugappa Group will undergo digital transformation of their people processes. Chola is the first to begin the transformation by adopting PeopleStrong Alt, a PeopleStrong product.
With PeopleStrong Alt, Chola Finance will be able to provide a unified experience from recruitment to retiral to all its users, including employees, recruiters, candidates and business users. It will also be able to provide access to a single window of truth for right decision making. With the Mobile App and Jinie (the chatbot), Chola employees will get to experience the next level of connect and collaboration.
Speaking on the occasion, Arun Alagappan, executive director, Chola, said, “I am pleased that as an organisation, we have taken a decision to move our people data to the cloud. It is a mammoth task and we needed a partner who has proven experience of managing transformation of such a scale. After a detailed evaluation process, we selected PeopleStrong as a partner for this journey of transformation.”
