By / June 10, 2012 / , / 0 Comments

It's rare to be happy with out of the box functionality.

It’s a rare occurrence when an organisation is happy with out of the box HRIS functionality.

During implementation, it may be that HR/Payroll changed their practices to fit the features of the HRIS. But over the life of a system new information is required to be stored and processes change. The HRIS will need to be customised to meet these requests.

Moving internal forms to Alesco Web Self Service

By / May 22, 2012 / / 1 Comment

It’s 2012 and organisations are still using paper based forms for business processes, and HR is one area that suffers most.

Alesco allows you to move the standard HR transactions online (leave booking, timesheets etc) to the Web Self Service (WSS).

But what about all those internal forms and workflows that your business uses?

If you’re running Alesco, you can either ask Talent2 to customise a core screen or create your own online forms outside of the WSS – both not very good options for maintainability, cost and future proofing.

There is a third option – creating new screens in Alesco WSS that leverage approvals functionality in Alesco and uses the WSS Approvals API. We’ved used this API a number of times and it’s easily the best way to create new workflows.

You’ll need technical resource to build them, but the results mean users stick to WSS, the forms look familar and there is less overhead for upgrades or when changes are required as it utilises core functionality.

So let’s look at what’s suitable to move into WSS.
