Sage North America today released Sage Abra SQL HRMS version 10, the latest version of Sage’s award-winning human resource management system (HRMS) for small and midsize companies. Sage Abra is a market-leading HRMS that improves company efficiency by centralizing employee data, simplifying core human resource (HR) and payroll administration and enabling better workforce-related decisions. Version 10 features a new user interface and powerful new dynamic information sharing capabilities that help companies turn workforce data into a competitive advantage.
“Finance and operations executives in midsize businesses are recognizing the value that timely and accurate workforce information can have in managing costs and successfully running the business, especially in today’s economy. This increasing demand for workforce data, available in formats and detail for individual purposes, is putting significant strain on HR departments,” said Johnny Laurent, vice president Sage Abra. “The traditional static reporting tools used by HR do not meet these new non-traditional user needs. Sage Abra Version 10 delivers the tools and flexibility for HR departments to give management the information they need, when they need it via secure web links.”
Sage Abra v10 provides dynamic information sharing through a variety of access means that put customizable information into the hands of those who need it most. This enables executives, managers and staff to access, analyze and leverage real-time workforce data without placing additional burden on the HR department. Primary to sharing information dynamically are the new View Builder feature, templates and secure web-based access.
With View Builder Sage Abra v10 enables HR to provide users with real-time access to data, which is appropriately filtered for their role within the organization. For example, “views” can be built quickly and easily for executives, directors or supervisors who have rights to certain types of data. Unique URLs then link the views to a variety of applications such as spreadsheet models, web pages and management dashboards.
Sage Abra v10 includes sample application templates, such as merit pay budgeting and contact lists, for Excel, SharePoint and other applications, to help HR and non-HR users create the specific information sharing documents they need. Sage Abra’s built-in security procedures protect data from unauthorized access, and also identify the user so that the data is filtered for that user. Each time the user accesses the application, the Abra data is automatically updated.
Sage Abra 10 also introduces a new user interface for improved efficiency. HR and payroll professionals interact with intuitive task organization, terminology and process workflow to accomplish tasks and find information quickly and easily. A new “product feedback” feature has been added that lets users participate in identifying and prioritizing future Abra improvements.
