advantage of customized software is that they are tailored to t
he exact requirements of the company allowing the software to fully
integrate, helping to meet key business objectives. Scalability is
also a positive factor, with bespoke systems able to accommodate
business growth and contract with any necessary downsizing. The
system should evolve with the company to provide an ongoing perfect
fit. One of the advantages of bespoke software is that you own
it, so you can modify it as and when you need. Unlike
off-the-shelf software that leaves you at the mercy of the
product owner who may one day withdraw support or retire a major
based authentication is a method of controlling access to functions
based on a users "role", rather than his identity. Users
might be defined "Author" role and an "Editor"
role. An "Author" might have permission to create new
stories, but not to publish them. An Editor would have permission to
review and modify, and publish existing stories. Any given user
might "belong" to one or more roles on a permanent basis,
or might be temporarily granted role authorization during a given
session. But critically, permissions and capabilities are never
assigned directly to users,
but instead always assigned to roles.
an electronic interface that aggregates and visualizes data from
multiple sources, such as databases, locally hosted files, and web
services. Dashboards allow you to monitor your business performance
by displaying historical trends, actionable data, and real-time
information. This could include â€“ CCMA arbitrations, disciplinary
outcomes, trends, compensation, settlements, litigation costs. This
dashboard provides a 360Â° view, a complete look of the companyâ€™s
Employee Relations and the
workplace â€“ in one glance. This should include the current state
of the business, but it is also helpful to look at data from the
past to display trends over time
and Tasks and Collaboration
e Design custom workflows according to your policies and procedures.
We assist with task management by creating easy to-do templates that
will populate various users or your own list. This in turn will
streamline communication, and automate routine tasks to efficiently
manage your daily work. The task-based workflow simply requires
users to assign tasks and deadlines to one another as work needs to
be completed. This works just like any traditional to-do application
or task list. Tasks are listed in the order that they need to be
completed, and users check them off as they are done.
user, once logged, in will see their calendar which will show events
to be completed, dates and time-lines. This calendar will be pre
populated by processes like hearings and CCMA templates. In
addition, templates are available to generate to-do items for any
team member and this will be populated on that members to-do list
which forms part of his calendar.
Reporting and Charts
great deal of work will be generated across your full business
development lifecycle. In the process, it accumulates and creates
lots of information. Reporting and analytics puts this information
at your fingertips and gives you the visibility and insight you need
about your business activity. The following report types are

an area and you drill down into the supporting data. You can present
the information in a funnel, column, bar, pie or line style.

with Grouping, Column Totalling and further display details. They
can use Search to dynamically filter the results based upon a
specific piece of information in any field or they can set specific
filter criteria. (Filter by region, offence, gender etc.)
Calendar with To-Do List
to-do lists are great for making sure all your tasks and chores get
done, but calendars keep you on track and get you where you need to
be. Calendars often don't make great to-do lists because they're
time-centric by nature, while to-do lists make lousy calendars
because most of the time they don't have a component for time. The
middle ground says you'd set up a calendar with only time- or
date-dependent events, like "Union Meeting." The to-do
list is where to put untimed actions like "change the file
permissions." Sure, you could put all your tasks on a calendar,
but you run the risk that your day will spiral out of control.
calendar will be automatically pre-populated by various template
information, contain arbitration and hearing dates and this
information will be emailed in advance to all selected employees.
For those without email facilities, the message will be hand
delivered or any other feasible way.
Processes and Flowcharts
are designed to assist employers in ensuring they properly
understand all the steps necessary in dealing with a process like
disciplinary/grievance etc.; if you follow all the steps this should
help protect you from having to defend an unfair dismissal â€“ or at
least allow you to defend an unfair dismissal effectively. Even with
guidance, making sure a disciplinary is fair and balanced can be
difficult and this is where teamwork and peer review is important.
At any stage of a process, documents are available for review.
Methods are available that ensure the work is approved and signed
off. This is accomplished by check boxes from the user with the
relevant roles and permissions.
Interactive flowcharts are
available in the form of a flow chart tree. Not all the options are
visible on the page. As the user goes through the flowchart and
answers questions, more details are revealed until they ultimately
get to the completion of the flow that they have selected.

template around achieving these outputs and ensure that the
necessary data is included and, equally important, that any
unnecessary data is excluded. We ensure templates are friendly and
easy with pull down menu like regions, offences, dates and emails.

settlements in the past, it is easy to have aspirations that this
area could be improved. It is not unreasonable to firstly see the
impact that case law can have on this area. It is also not far
fetched to view every compensation paid as unnecessary. This is our
view and we have designed the system to make full use of our
expertise to minimise costs.
