Today, Sage Software Australia announced the release of locally developed employee self-service application Sage ESS, which integrates with payroll solution Sage MicrOpay.
The scalable and flexible solution aims to address many of the unique HR and payroll requirements of Australian legislation, according to Sage.
The application gives employees and managers self-service access to update their personal and banking details, check pay advice and apply for, approve or track leave.
“Allowing employees to access their data in a self-serve model ensures that the HR team is no longer bombarded with emails, calls and employee ‘walk-ins’ seeking answers to simple questions,” said Alan Osrin, country vice president of Sage Australia.
“By using Sage ESS, the HR department is free to focus on strategic work such as talent management and training.”
Mr Osrin said the application is built for the cloud, allowing users to access it remotely.
“The barriers between work and personal life are dissolving with the use of mobile devices,” he said.
“Managers often need to approve requests while on the go and employees want a fast and user-friendly application accessible from anywhere, at any time and on any device.”
