The foundU Platform is an HR tool that is highly automated, sophisticated and simple to use. The uniqueness of foundU is not just what we do, but how we do it. Features such as applicant tracking, compliance, time & attendance, rostering and payroll are done quickly and efficiently with just a click of a button.
