Partnership Announcement


Affirm Software and hSenid join forces

A Strategic Partnership for a ‘simplified Recruitment & Employee Onboarding’ by PeoplesHR together with Affirm Software.

The strategic partnership established between hSenid Business Solutions and Affirm Software has led to the integration of products of both organisations, enhancing the recruitment and onboarding processes.

Affirm Software delivers an unique, and completely paperless, new employee onboarding solution, called Onboard Express (OBX), allowing companies to deliver the employment contract, the complete company onboarding pack, company policies, creates candidate portals on behalf of the company along with company branding, enabling candidates to accept offers digitally, securely, faster and more cost-effectively. OBX captures all the information from the new employee populating on all onboarding forms and transfers all information into the HR solution of hSenid Business Solutions, PeoplesHR and payroll system via an API, delivering efficiencies and savings on average of 80% compared to traditionally paper based onboarding processes. OBX captures the digital approval from the new employee using banking PIN technology sent to their mobile phone.

Workpro Partnership Announcement


Onboard Express and WorkPro join forces

Affirm Software (Affirm) is delighted to announce a new partnership with WorkPro that will provide Onboard Express, our digital new employee onboarding service, with the functionality to perform real time Work Rights checks.

The partnership will embed Workpro technology within Onboard Express, that will allow a seamless integration with the Department of Home Affairs Visa Entitlement Verification (VEVO) for our customers to improve adherence to legislated compliance and deliver job-readiness efficiency.

This new service is now in final testing with a release date planned for early June 2020. This new feature continues to demonstrate Affirm’s mantra of listening to the customers’ voice, as it was one of our largest clients that requested this new functionality and they will be the first to implement, and a rollout plan will extend to other customers throughout the year.

Other Workpro services, such as Australian Police Checks, will be introduced later in 2020, as Affirm continues to rollout new innovative features.

Affirm is a leading provider of paperless new employee Onboarding services in Australia with over 10 years of experience. Affirm is always seeking to innovate and deliver leading edge solutions to our customers. So when our customers asked us to consider providing a Work Rights check for new employees we had 2 options:

  1. Develop our own integration to the immigration Department of Home Affairs, or
  2. Collaborate with a proven solution partner to the Department

Following a thorough market evaluation, Affirm settled on the market leading services developed by WorkPro.

Affirm and WorkPro have announced a long-term partnership to deliver these valuable Work Rights Checks that will deliver to companies’ extended efficiency and compliance benefits.

Affirm CEO, Mr Bryan Ericson, said "We are pleased to join forces with WorkPro, the market leader of background screening services in Australia". "We look forward to extending the WorkPro ‘Police’ check and ‘Working with Children’ check service to our customers later in 2020".

WorkPro Founder, Tania Evans stated:

"Work Rights checks are a critical part of every onboarding process. The check can only be completed using the Department’s VEVO database either directly or through an accredited provider."

"These checks are a legislated obligation for all employers and must form part of a robust workforce compliance program. WorkPro is delighted to develop a strategic partnership with Affirm Software. The partnership provides value by mitigating risks and delivering compliance efficiency in business processes and operations for Affirm customers."

"We look forward to launching the Work Right check service to Affirms customer network and expanding the suite of services to Affirm customers shortly."

Currently in its 13th year, WorkPro partners with more than 1,700 customers across Australia and New Zealand and more than 3 million individuals are registered as "work-ready" via WorkPro. General information on WorkPro’s is available at workpro.com.au

Established in 2006, the highly configurable WorkPro platform centralises background checks; licence, ticket and document management; and safety and compliance training to help organisations efficiently and effectively manage talent while meeting important legal obligations.
