PDS Announces Alliance with HumanConcepts
Blue Bell, Pa., April 11, 2003 – PDS, an award-winning developer of web-based human resource and payroll systems, today announced an alliance partnership with HumanConcepts, LLC, the developer of OrgPlus™, the industry standard software for organizational charting. PDS will integrate HumanConcepts’ organizational charting capabilities into its Vista HRMS (Human Resource Management System) and payroll solution.
“Many of our clients are looking for organizational charting functionality,” said Charles Jefferies, president and CEO of PDS. “By incorporating OrgPlus with Vista, our clients are able to automatically generate org charts from existing data. Combined with Vista’s Position Management capability, users can more easily manage their organization not only from the perspective of their employees, but also by position.”
“PDS has a strong HR, payroll and benefits solution,” said Martin Sacks, president and CEO of HumanConcepts. “Its focus on position management makes OrgPlus a perfect fit for an add-on component of Vista. With OrgPlus, Vista users can now have a visual understanding of their current structure through its automated org charts.”
Vista is a fully integrated HR, benefits administration and payroll system, which can be configured to reflect a company’s business practices and processes. Individual users or groups of users can be provided with specific functionality according to their job responsibilities and authority to access sensitive information. Moreover, users can easily create their own specialized reports to supplement Vista’s extensive library of predefined reports. Finally, Vista’s extensive workflow engine reduces the overhead involved in day-to-day tasks and frees up the HR and payroll professionals to focus on more strategic issues.
OrgPlus Professional automatically generates professional org charts that can be published and shared in documents, presentations or on corporate intranets. HR managers can communicate up-to-date org charts easily across their organization, and give managers the tools to do planning and what-if analyses.
