Scotland’s Colleges exists to support, represent and promote Scotland's 43 colleges who are at the forefront of lifelong learning, education, training and skills.

The People Inc. HR software application has been chosen by Scotland's Colleges to replace it's aged existing HR solution to help support HR process and daily administration.

In addition to having a basic need to implement new HR software that has far greater functional capability, Scotland's College's required a proven, reliable and configurable system, rather than one that was 'hard-coded' and inflexible.

Throughout the consultation phase with Scotland's Colleges, the overwhelming need to provide them with a flexible and configurable HR software was always evident.

All HR systems offer standard, built in functionality, but many lack the capability to provide the tools needed to change the database structure and screen design to more accurately reflect the changing needs of any business.

Scotland's Colleges are intent on taking full ownership of these in-built configuration tools, to be able to further develop the capabilities of the system when in a position to roll-out the system as an organisation-wide portal to display and publish data, and to encourage far greater workforce interaction.

Callum Brown, Software Consultant, at activHR Consulting commented, "In our experience, the standard employee data recording functionality of the People Inc. platform provides 90% of all the capability required, with the remainder being achieved by configuring the database structure and data entry screens, and by having a focus on automating the more common and day to day people management processes. This is easily achieved by using the built-in software tools such as the screen designer, workflow designer and report builder and allows our clients to strive and work towards having a system that's as close to 100% fit for purpose as possible."
