The Integrity 2.0 Module is a cost-efficient solution for organizations to fix their immediate data problems and then maintain good data consistently in-house.
Irving, TX (PRWEB) April 8, 2010
Aquire, a global leader in workforce planning and analytics solutions, today announced the release of Integrity 2.0 - an all-new version of the company's data integrity module for OrgPublisher.
OrgPublisher, the leading automatic organizational charting and reporting solution, combined with the new Integrity 2.0 Module enables HR managers to collaboratively audit, correct and maintain workforce data housed in multiple systems and locations. Workforce planning decisions that are based on complete, accurate information result in higher success rates and lower implementation costs. Additionally, maintaining correct data mitigates legal risks, such as non-compliance issues.
The Integrity 2.0 Module is a simple, Web-based solution that allows human resource professionals and managers to aggregate workforce data from multiple sources - including ERP systems, database programs and spreadsheets - into a single org-chart based workspace. The solution automatically locates and flags anomalies and missing data, allowing HR analysts to easily review and correct the information.
"Many companies overestimate the quality of their data. But if they will address inevitable data problems before undertaking any initiative, like succession planning or an ERP system implementation, they'll greatly improve the odds for a successful outcome," said Tom McKeown, President and COO of Aquire.
New features of Integrity 2.0 allow HR professionals to:
> Assign Units to HR Analysts and Track Their Progress
The data cleanup initiative can be segmented and delegated to multiple analysts for faster results. A dashboard view displays the progress of each analyst on their assigned units and also the status of the initiative as a whole.
> Seamlessly Maintain Accurate Data with Automatic Data Synchronization (OrgSync)
Data can be kept accurate and current with automatic synchronization of employee data housed within HR systems, talent management applications, etc. Daily automatic updates of employee turnover, new hires and more ensure that data remains accurate and complete.
> Review Data Changes with the Interactive Change Report
This new report clearly indicates which changes have been made using a color-coded legend. Managers can preview changes here before approving them using an optional approval step within the workflow. Users can also review which changes were made by individual users and which changes were made automatically via OrgSync updates.
> Monitor Data Regularly and Receive Automatic Error Notifications
Integrity can continuously monitor data for anomalies and omissions, and then automatically notify analysts for immediate correction.
> Apply Mass Changes for Individual Units or the Entire Organization
Users can use the mass change feature to define and apply a correction to multiple individuals at once; for example, moving an entire department to a new cost center.
> Securely Access Charts and Models with One Click
A new Web-based home page provides users with secure, one-click access to their assigned units for review, ensuring that each viewer sees only appropriate information.
"We cleanse customer data as a service offering prior to implementing certain solutions, so we've seen the amount of data errors and omissions that plague companies," said Ross Melbourne, CTO and co-founder of Aquire. "The Integrity 2.0 Module is a cost-efficient solution for organizations to fix their immediate data problems and then maintain good data consistently in-house."
Aquire has additional OrgPublisher Modules including Succession, which allows organizations to quickly build and maintain accurate succession plans throughout the enterprise and Modeling, which allows managers to conduct "what if?" planning to model the future structure of the company's workforce. All three modules and OrgPublisher Premier work in concert on the Unifi platform as part of the larger lifecycle of workforce planning. Aquire's workforce planning and analytics solution, InSight, allows companies to analyze workforce and talent movement trends - including hiring, promotions, transfers and attrition - by virtually any segment of the organization to address the most complex workforce decisions.
