HOUR, Ltd. – Company Profile

The software company HOUR, Ltd. was established in 1993. We have designed several products aimed at payroll and HR management. Currently, our main products have been the HUMAN Informantion System with its follow-up solution eHUMAN and the Humanet Information system – fully cloud based solution.

Our latest product is a complex solution called 24-hour Personal Assistant . It has resulted from the combination of multi-functional personal kiosks and the eHuman System. An inseparable component of our activities has been outsorcing of the personnel and payroll administration as strategic support and an effective way of economizing in Slovak companies.

Nowadays, our company employs almost 70 people. Not only do they guarantee professional introduction and implementation of the information system into operation, they also provide high-quality and complex technical support and professional advisory hotline service for payroll and HR management to all of our customers. Besides our headquarters in Žilina we have branches in Košice, Banská Bystrica and Piešťany.

The core mission of the Company is to bring values in HR with the goal of fulfilling the Company´s vision:

  • to help customers function better by providing them with innovative, complex and reliable solutions beyond their expectations,

  • to be a trustworthy partner to our customers, partners and employees,

  • to keep growing long-term, and to be a market leader.

Our target is to develop, implement and maintain payroll and HR management softwares and thus provide our customers with high-quality and complex services, helping them achieve their business goals.


The crucial moment leading to specifying our orientation as stated above was our winning the nation-wide tender in the Slovak health-spa Piešťany with our payroll product FLUXPAM, version PAM3, later improved into version PAM4. Even with the success of the FLUXPAM product, our employees were aware that with the onset of the WINDOWS operational system it was going to be possible to make the functionality of the system better, and they started preparing a new payroll and HR management solution called HUMAN. Its quality speaks for itself through hundreds of its successful installations and on-going implementations. Fast internet and intranet development has required the development of a new product, HUMANET. It uses the support and services of the .NET framework technology. It has been designed for companies that need to access and collect data from a large number of institutions into one central spot (e.g. self-governing regions), as well as for small companies without the necessity of the installation on their own PC. Last but not least, we do not leave out outsourcing the payroll and HR as a strategic support tool, and one of the ways of saving finances, improving services and developing companies in Slovakia.
