PDS Announces Vista Analytics


New Toolset Offers Real-time Visibility
of Valuable HRMS Data to Enhance Decision-Making


Blue Bell, Pa., September 4, 2013 – PDS, a leading provider of human resource, benefits, recruiting, and payroll software, today announced Vista Analytics, a new module for its flagship Vista HRMS®.  This configurable toolset enables PDS customers to leverage the power of their HRMS data to make more informed decisions.  Through customizable dashboards, Vista Analytics provides real-time visibility into important metrics that users can easily drill-down on for more details.     


“The data within an HRMS is a gold mine of valuable information; however, users often struggle to leverage the data for strategic decision-making,” said Pat Palmer, senior vice president and product manager at PDS. “Vista Analytics enables PDS customers to turn their HRMS data into actionable information to make better business decisions.  This new application provides the capabilities for users to present data in a manner that can be used and acted upon.  It offers the flexibility to customize what data is analyzed and how it should be presented, and to build dashboards to help users get to the data that they want easily.”


Vista Analytics is a configurable toolset that allows users to create, manage, display, and analyze statistics and other metrics, as well as KPIs (key performance indicators) for their HR, benefits, payroll, recruiting information, and more.  Pre-defined analytics and KPIs are delivered as part of the toolset, along with the functionality allowing users to create an unlimited number of analytics of their own.  Other features include: automatic calculation, storage, and alerts relating to KPIs; drill-down functionality when viewing analytics; inclusion of analytics in Vista HRMS dashboard pages; and security by user and analytic. 


PDS offers training on the software as well as on general HR analytics, statistics, and modeling to enable users to thoroughly understand the capabilities of the analytics module and how to leverage the valuable data within their own HRMS to increase the return on their human capital investments.  Participants in the training will be eligible for HRCI credits. 


Vista Analytics is an add-on component for Vista HRMS, PDS’ award-winning, feature-rich, completely integrated HR, benefits, payroll, recruiting, and self-service software application that enables organizations to minimize the time invested in administrative HRMS/payroll activities by streamlining and automating those processes and facilitating strategic decision-making capabilities.
