Examples of Data Exports with SDMS V HRPersonnel or Staff Development for Windows

This service allows either the "one-off" or regular updating of the staff file within SDMS Software from your Personnel, Payroll or main HR system. This greatly reduces the administrative and data entry burden already placed on staff and further enhances the flexibility of the SDMS Range of Products. A typical example of a benefit of this integration is the reduction of administration and data entry relating to the management of new starters for induction purposes, as well as the requirement for equal opportunities monitoring throughout all management information systems.

More and more organisations are managing qualification and competencies more precisely, whether as accreditation of prior learning or recently gained as a result of training. Those qualifications and competencies, delivered, monitored, gained and managed within SDMS V Staff Development and Learning Management for Windows can then be exported back to the organisation’s HR system thereby ensuring a "one point of entry" integrated system and up to date information being supplied.
