Does this service offer multi-user capability (e.g. teams)?
What are some applications this service is commonly used in tandem with?
The software has the concept of Roles, where you can define multiple roles within the system and decide which users fall into which roles. You can fully define exactly what each role can do within the system - what access they have, what they can see/do. You can have unlimited number of users and they can be managed within the system. The system also handles Single Sign On to make managing the authentication side easier if clients already use that.
What platforms does this service support?
The system will work well with any existing HR back office system the client has, such as Oracle, Peoplesoft etc. Very often clients find main stream vendors offerings in the compensation/total rewards management area are not very configurable or flexible. So they use our software as a plug-in or add-on to their existing HR / employee management system.
What is this service generally used for?
The system is cloud based, or can be hosted locally by the client if required. It needs nothing more than a web browser on the users machine in order to access and use the system. As it runs off a web browser it will also work on any machine, whether a windows / apple laptop or an android tablet etc.
Who are the main user groups of this service?
The software is ideal for any company who needs the ability to manage employee's performance, appraisal and total rewards in an on-line cloud based system. It can handle nearly all aspects of employee management. You can set goals, targets for employee yearly appraisal's, you can undertake a regular performance review, setting ratings against employees, and awarding salary / bonus increases. The system can handle any type of bonus or award, including complex deferred payments, shares, equity, stock, lump cash bonus's etc. Its fully configurable to each clients individual requirements.
Does this service offer guides, tutorials and or customer support?
The software is fully scale-able which means it is used by companies of 50 employees, right up to companies of 300,000 employees. The software is ideal for any company who needs the ability to manage employee`s performance, appraisal and total rewards in an on-line cloud based system. Typically our clients were using spreadsheets prior to our software and were finding it was becoming a very time consuming and difficult to manage process.
SpiraLinks customer support is very highly praised and regarded by our clients. In all the reviews clients give us they mention the outstanding level of support they receive. This is because SpiraLinks dont just offer a typical client support experience. We actually take the time to work very closely with each client and understand exactly what their business does, what they want and how they will be using the software. That way we are able to tailor the system to meet clients exact needs. By understanding exactly what they are trying to achieve we can use our 24 years experience in this sector to recommend exactly what they need to meet those requirements. Very often our engineers are able to suggest a better way of achieving the clients goal than the client first thought of!
