Intelligent Organisational Charting – A Powerful New Solution for HR

During Period of Significant Merger and Acquisition Activity, Companies Use Intelligent Organisational Charts to Manage Change and Model Their Future Organisation

Exeter, Devon — July 31, 2007 — HumanConcepts, the developer of OrgPlus®, today announced a new white paper entitled "Intelligent Organisational Charting - A Powerful New Solution for HR." The document is now available to human resource, business and IT executives at no charge. Intelligent organisational charts are a new breed of org charts with the technology to drive increased productivity across the entire enterprise. The white paper reveals how organisations can easily navigate HR data from a secure and unified web-based organisation chart, extract HR analytics and conduct collaborative planning scenarios to model and optimise the workforce.

Mergers and acquisitions present major organisational challenges and human resource departments must act decisively to enact fast-paced, mission-critical decisions about the workforce that will affect merger success and stockholder value.

“There are eight serious problems with using traditional manual charting systems to manage change” said Martin Sacks, CEO of HumanConcepts. “An intelligent organisation charting solution corrects these problems and helps keep organisations agile in response to business challenges. An intelligent charting platform can help management visualise and plan a successful merger or re-organisation before it happens.”

The white paper discusses how a global telecommunications giant with 120,000 employees used an intelligent organisational charting solution to plan a corporate restructuring. Using certain metrics as guidelines, divisions were highlighted within the charts as candidates for restructuring. The process, which normally took several months, was completed in just one week.

• Pitney Bowes uses OrgPlus Enterprise to validate more than 80 fields of human resources data from the source HR system. The company implemented a self-service solution that allows managers to easily review and update the organisational data, saving countless man-hours of data correction and allowing for accurate resource planning decisions.

The white paper further reveals how organisations can reduce communication and planning costs by as much as £132 per employee annually.
