Key Features

  • Core HR: This module offers a central self-service portal where users can take care of common HR functions. Managers can track time off, manage workflows, sign documents and send employee engagement surveys. Employees can update personal details, find benefits statements, view pay stubs, see PTO and reply to surveys. 
  • Payroll Processing: The payroll function is customizable as business needs change, and it integrates well with payroll processing companies. Administrators have access to automated capabilities that can generate pay stubs, W2s and other reports, as well as audit tools. 
  • Benefits Management: Open enrollment and information regarding supplemental and core employee benefits are available from the employee portal on desktop and mobile devices. The module supports workflows, compliance forms, employee feedback and voluntary benefit vendors. 
  • Applicant Tracking System: ATS simplifies the recruiting and hiring process by delivering job distribution, employment branding, candidate management and reporting. Users can designate the required information from jobseekers. Pre-employment background and drug screening assessments support informed hiring decisions.

Together, employees and managers can set goals and monitor performance, and managers can view competencies to determine team strengths and weaknesses. Integration with the LMS feature facilitates course assignment based on areas where employees need more training. 
  • Time and Attendance: The platform eases the burden on managers by automatically calculating time off, sending requests to the appropriate manager, syncing to payroll for accurate processing, and hosting time off requests and approvals on the self-service portal. Tools include punch-in on the portal, biometric tracking and geo-fencing for remote clock-in.

  • Succession Planning: This set of tools lets companies review performance to assess readiness, identify gaps in their talent pool and build plans to develop the expertise and skills necessary for new roles. Capabilities include scorecards, comparative ratings and 9-box talent matrices. The system draws performance data from goals, development plans and competencies and provides training options.
