Appogee, has today launched Appogee HR, a new cloud-based online HR management system. Appogee HR helps customers to be compliant with their employee records management obligations and gives employees the ability to self serve, updating their own personal information.
Appogee HR simplifies HR management for both businesses and staff. It securely stores employee data, records and company documents online, eliminating the need to secure file-servers or store paper records. Access to data is controlled through Employee, Manager, HR Manager and Admin roles. Appogee HR is simple to set-up with templates provided and flexible customisation. As a fully cloud-based application, accessed through the browser, no software installation is required.
HR processes can be managed more effectively as Appogee HR's workflow automation provides alerts, notifications and checklists for activities such as new joiner processes, performance reviews, training activities and acknowledgements that employees have read company policies. These help ensure that company specific procedures and policies are adhered to across every team.
Appogee HR incorporates a comprehensive online and mobile absence management application, also available as a standalone service, Appogee Leave. This existing service from Appogee consistently ranks as the number one absence and time off management solution for Google Apps users in the Google Apps Marketplace.
"We've found that getting that balance right, ensuring staff are provided with all of the support required, whilst maintaining compliance and control over HR can be a challenge for organizations," commented David McLeman CEO of Appogee. "We're therefore delighted to be able to launch Appogee HR into the market, and help companies better manage their HR information. It's an easy to use and intuitive application giving employees control over their profile, and providing managers and HR with that all important oversight and access to key information."
"The launch of Appogee HR was a natural progression for us," explains McLeman. "Appogee Leave has 700 customers, and over 50,000 users in more than 45 different countries. The new product expands our original Leave offering and enables greater flexibility, transparency and control of HR management for businesses."
Appogee HR and Appogee Leave include integration capabilities with other applications: currently providing single sign on for Google Apps users; holiday and leave calendar support for Google Calendars and Microsoft Outlook; an optional API for enterprise customers and with other enhanced cloud application integrations to follow.
