Benefits of an Intranet / Staff Portal

Save time and effort managing your staff by using a dedicated Staff Management Portal.

“Employees who believe that management is concerned about them as a whole person – not just an employee – are more productive, more satisfied, more fulfilled. Satisfied employees mean satisfied customers, which leads to profitability.” – Anne M. Mulcahy - CEO Xerox.

Most SMEs do not yet use dedicated software to help manage their staff. Instead, companies rely on a manual approach using a combination of electronic file systems, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word and a paper filing system which is fraught with issues.

We create modular web portals that provide the following essential ingredients that when customised become powerful features to simplify the management of your staff.

Core features include:

Staff Management - this allows you to create and manage user accounts for each member of staff.  Staff Roles are individually assigned to each member of Staff to determine the features and functions they can access and use.

Database - using a database to store your data has many advantages over using silos such as Excel spreadsheets.  Data stored centrally can be accessed securely by members of staff as defined by their staff roles.

Central Secure Filing System - using a centralised, secure filing system documents can be managed more easily ensuring that everyone has access to the latest and correct documents.  Documents can be secured against staff roles or to individual members of staff, providing fine-grain security access.

Data Lists and Grids - using data lists and grids it is possible to show all sorts of staff and team related information such as a Staff Directory, or a list of Assets for asset management.

Electronic Forms - using secure electronic forms data can be captured and edited and viewed easily.  The database is used to store the data with access given only to Staff using Staff Roles.

SMS - Inbound and outbound SMS message is used to send messages to staff - this can be ad-hoc, sending a message to a group of people, or it can be used as part of a reminders system, for example, reminding staff of a task they must complete.  Staff can reply to messages to signal a result, such as "Task Completed", or "Arrived", etc.

Emails - The system can send emails automatically or when certain activities have been completed. 

Chatbot - Chatbots can be used to answer staff questions.  A knowledge base can be loaded into the chatbot, allowing the chatbot to help staff find the information they are looking for.  Chatbots can also be used to provide automated services such as allowing a member of staff to request a holiday.

Using the features above, we create application modules for Human Resources and any other department that requires staff management business functions.

Here is a list of example modules:

  • Staff Document Library
  • Holiday and Absence Management
  • Onboarding and Offboarding
  • Staff Directory
  • Staff Profile
  • Staff Dashboard
  • Meeting Room Management
  • Content Management and Company News
  • Asset Management
  • Staff Roster
  • Reminders System
  • Governance and Quality Gates
  • Management Information and Reporting
  • Complaint Management
  • Staff Suggestions and Feedback Management
  • Staff 360 Reviews

We create these modules for your exact needs, but this isn't as expensive as it sounds because our development workflow is extremely efficient and we have design and code patterns for just about any scenario.  If the module you want is not listed above, then that is not a problem because we can easily create it.

If you have been struggling with a manual staff management system and you would like to start saving time and money and have happy staff then contact us with your requirements, and we will quickly give you an estimate of costs and delivery dates.  You can contact us directly on 01206 848428, or use our cost estimator to get started.
