Tech Firm Puts Out HR Programs

July 6, 2004 ( - A Framingham, Massachusetts technology company has released the latest version of its compensation management program as well as a program to manage organization charts.

Workscape said in a news release that it was making available OneForce/Compensation 5.1, the latest release of its compensation management program and OneForce/OrgManager 5.1, a complementary workforce management application. Powered by Workscape’s OneForce technology platform, OneForce/Compensation 5.1 includes a new user interface, comprehensive reporting capabilities powered by a custom version of Crystal Enterprise, and a new compensation configuration module, the announcement said.

Both of the new applications use the OneForce 5 technology platform launched earlier this year.   OneForce/Compensation and OneForce/OrgManager will now utilize the OneForce platform to deliver consolidated proxy and HR administration, employee/manager search functionality and role/user-based security.

In the compensation program, application screens now feature tabbed presentations for quick navigation with full integration to help and other supporting content, including access to HR policy and compensation guidelines, frequently asked questions, and decision support worksheets from every screen, the news release said.    A new promotion worksheet is now available to help ensure adherence to promotion guidelines.   In addition, existing merit and bonus worksheets have been improved with results tables to provide greater clarity of user actions.   Additional user interface enhancements include “mouseovers” displaying column descriptions, and access to consolidated reporting and analytics.  

According to the announcement, role-based visibility enforcing data security within the reports prevents unauthorized viewing of compensation data.   Based on the definition of their role and related clearances, managers can access additional reporting capabilities, such as the interactive report viewer providing group trees, column sorting, export capabilities to multiple formats, basic and advanced search query functionality.

Workscape said it has also released a new version of OneForce/OrgManager,  a Web-based tool that facilitates the creation and maintenance of current and accurate organizational hierarchies.    Both programs are available from Workscape as both installed software and as hosted solutions.
