How Emgage Works?


Eureka Moment

When Surendra joined a two-member HR team as the HR Manager of a growing tech company, they struggled big time in implementing HR processes and an HRMS platform owning to the complexities of the platform, limited knowledge, and (of course) the bandwidth!

The challenges grew 3x fold when he started his own HR consulting & outsourcing firm, years later! They were using spreadsheets and documents to keep up with Payroll and processes. A ton of stuff was slipping through the cracks.

Their customers weren’t happy, and neither were they! So they looked for a better solution. Unfortunately, what they found was that the HRMS platforms available in the market were way more than their small yet growing business needed, and costly too. Packed with features that they’d never use, the HRMSs they tried were all complex and overwhelming.

That’s when and why the ‘Emgage’ was born!

Emgage is a simple yet powerful HRMS platform for growing businesses that helps you and your HR team deliver exceptional employee experience. We built it with a minimal feature set that your business needs and left out everything else!

No clutter. No complexity. No extra features to confuse and overwhelm you and your employees. They are proud to say that Emgage is the product that they wish existed back when they were looking for the perfect small business HRMS. And They are also proud that their 50+ customers agree.

Whether you’re ready to move on from the physical documents and spreadsheets, or you’re fed up with complex HRMS software, We hope you’ll give Emgage a try.

We are confident that you’ll love it and it will make your team more productive and your employees happier!
