DUSA choose new HR software
Tuesday, 10 November 2009 18:53

Dundee University Students’ Association (DUSA) have awarded activHR Consulting the contract to provide them with a replacement HR system.

After a relatively short product selection phase, DUSA are to adopt the People Inc. software platform, capable of supporting the administration of all employee related data such as recruitment, training, performance, absence & holiday and health and safety.

Throughout the product selection process they also realised that their organisation had evolved over time but their system was no longer able to deliver all that was required to meet the strategic and operational aims of the HR team.

The key requirements for DUSA when making the decision to change their HR software were to experience an easy and speedy transition with a tried and tested data migration method, to retain all existing capability of the previous system, yet also have the opportunity to take advantage of increased functionality in the new system.

The basic functionality of People Inc. will provide 90% of all the capability required within the department, with the remainder being delivered by configuring the database design and layout of screens; this has been easily achieved by using the in-built tools such as the screen designer, workflow designer and report builder.  These user friendly tools have allowed DUSA to adopt a replacement HR system that is custom-designed to their own specific requirements, but without the need to employ expensive software programmers.

Further product development has also been undertaken to share data between their 3rd party time & attendance and payroll software systems; data only needs to be entered once, which saves time inputting data into three separate systems and also ensures that the accuracy and the integrity of the data is protected.
