Client Customisation

HR Manage is a generic human resource system that can be customised to meet the client's needs. The system is extremely customisable and most fundamental changes can be done by the program administrator. In addition to current functionality, we are also willing to develop new functionality based on client requests which can either form part of new HR Manage versions or if the request is very custom, we can develop it as a plugin for HR Manage.

Here are some of the aspects that can be customised:

HR Manage allows the renaming of certain entities throughout the program.  The term "Branches" and "Departments" for instance, can be renamed to "District" and "Division".  The flexible naming conventions extends to the Training and Job Profiling modules where custom types of training (Course, Qualifications, etc.) and items in Job Profiles (Key Performance Area, Output, KPI, etc.) can be defined for the company.

As of version 4.5, administrators also have the power to rename certain relationships between employees (Leave Approver, Primary Reviewer, etc.) as well as create new custom fields in certain modules that may not be available as standard already.

HR Manage Online makes use of jQuery themes which means that the client can choose any of the standard jQuery themes available in the gallery for their user interface or design their own complete them from scratch (or using an existing theme as base) using ThemeRoller.

Some example themes:

Email notifications are available throughout HR Manage.  Individual email notifications can be turned on or off, the Subject line and Message Content can be completely changed using a visual editor.  Values can be inserted into the message and subject line by the use of smart-tags.

The Filter Engine and Table Column Layout can be customised for every module in HR Manage.  Any unused fields can be removed and commonly used fields can be moved closer to the front.

HR Manage comes with visual report designer that can be used for designing basic reports like Training Attendance Registers or Certificates.  The report designer works similar to the report designer in MS Access so although it might not be easy enough for a standard end-user to design a report, for someone with report design skills, it shouldn't be a challenge.

We can also develop additional custom reports that can simply be plugged into HR Manage through one of the available reporting platforms.

Custom Development

When we receive a development request from a client, the requirement is analysed in terms of the overall HR Manage system.  If the feature is something that is generic enough, it is scheduled for development and included as part of HR Manage in a future release.  HR Manage is based on the collective knowledge and best practices of market leading companies throughout South Africa.

For requests that are rejected for inclusion in the standard HR Manage package due to the request being too custom, we can develop it as an External Plugin.  External plugins are seamlessly integrated into HR Manage and acts as-if was part of the standard functionality.  The plugin uses the same core functionality, communication with server and security as HR Manage.  Thus the user must first log into HR Manage in order to access the functionality for the plugin.  Security can tailored for the plugin and managed via the Security Management area to ensure that only the authorised users can access the plugin.

We've developed plugins of all kinds from something as simply generating a custom management report for the selected Employee in HR Manage to a whole module for capturing overtime details for sub-ordinates.

Continuous Development

Continuous development is being done on HR Manage to ensure that we stay up to date with the latest technologies, requirements and laws (E.g. New SETA & EE reports). The new developments also include customer requests which contributes towards to the collective skills and knowledge behind the system. This results in updates, bug fixes, new features and modules being available on a monthly basis. Maintenance clients are updated on a regular basis or as new features are required. Up to date Version History and Planned Future Releases are available on this website.
