Anytime, Anywhere! Better Employee Engagement with the New Enhanced Employee Self Service Accessible on Various Mobile Devices
The new Employee Self Service (unifiedESS) enables employees to access their own profile information from anywhere, anytime and on any devices. Be it via a notebook, tablet or smartphone, employees have the freedom to administrate their own leave, claims, OT requisition, travel requisition and view payslips. Employees are able to access self service through a secure link and log straight into their accounts.
Orisoft’s unifiedESS also enables an organization to manage the flow of information submitted by employees for approval. This includes requests to take time off on holiday and the submission of expense claims and timesheets. These requests are normally routed to a manager or supervisor for review or approval before the employee’s records within the system are updated. The routing of requests is flexible; requests from a group of employees can be routed to any individual or number of individuals (not just the employee’s manager).
It is important to increase efficiency and provide better employee services. Deploying a mobile Employee Self-Service offers the entire workforce immediate access to critical information, helping to attract and retain the highest quality employees. It also enables more effective communication across the organization and significantly improves employee productivity.
