Preceda is an integrated, end-to-end people management solution that provides Human Resource Management, Payroll, Employee Self Service, Award Interpretation and Time and Attendance functionality from one central database, with a common user interface. Preceda is designed, developed and supported in Australia for Australian and New Zealand business conditions using the latest technology and software engineering approach.


Browser-based (internet) architecture enables employees, line managers or HR/Payroll staff to have secure access directly into the application’s integrated database. The benefit of this remote and secure access to a central database or ‘single source of truth’ is one of the distinct advantages of Preceda.


Preceda’s browser-based, zero client architecture also provides significant advantages for deployment and access. Users only require a web browser and the appropriate security clearance. There is no requirement for additional software to be loaded and maintained on the PC.


Preceda is a scalable solution used by many of the largest and smallest organizations in Australia and New Zealand, including Woolworths, the largest non-government employer in the region with 160,000+ employees. Its scalability allows you to start small with just 12 staff members, for example, and grow along with your business with the minimum of cost and disruption.


Preceda is a scalable, proven people management solution designed, developed and supported by Ascender in Australia.
